SDCC 2014 exclusive review!
It’s that time of the year again for me to review all those SDCC exclusives. Unfortunately, there aren’t a lot of toys I’m interested in this year, so I’m only going to review one: S.H. Figuarts Vegeta Original Anime Color version.
Vegeta Original Anime Color version is a parody of his first appearance in the original anime series. The bizarre color scheme is mainly due to the fact that the anime people had no idea what Vegeta real color should be like, and they just went ahead and colored him anyway they wanted. Random color scheme is a common thing in early Dragonball anime, and something that’s eventually fixed in the Dragonball Kai anime.
The back of the box even features the famous “It’s Over 9000!” meme.
The content. There are many spare parts for you to pose Vegeta anyway you want.
The instruction paper. All these possibilities and poses I’m never going to do.
The figure itself. Just like most S.H. Figuarts figures, this one has high quality paintings and great articulation points as well.
The leftovers. A big problem with me is that I don’t like changing the figures’ parts so often. I know, I know, what a waste getting a figure with so many parts if I don’t like to change them often. The thing is, every time you change your figures’ parts, you’re risking chances of breaking the figure. I have broke my fair share of figures due to excessive parts changing, so I tend not to do that anymore.
That said, I still appreciate figures with articulation points and spare parts. That way, I can pose my figure anyway I want.
The stand. Since Vegeta can stand on himself just fine, the stand is mainly for people who wants to pose the figure in a way that requires a support.
One thing I appreciate is the figure comes with a Scouter.
The shoulder pads don’t hinder the movements at all, as there are enough space between the pads and shoulders.
That pose is fine and all, but my final pose has to be:
“It’s over 9000!”
The figure is great even for S.H. Figuarts standard. It comes with many, many accessories, and the painting is definitely high quality. However, the amount of accessories can be a little overwhelming? I think I’m just being difficult.
