I asked once about it before and I did receive an answer, though I was really wondering if anyone could/would post a picture of the JAKKS Pacific Omega Shenron alongside either the Bandai Figure-Rise Standard SSJ4 Goku and/or SSJ4 Vegeta. Thank you!
Yeah, the Dragon Ball Styling Goku is a little big. My favorite in my collection is the Bandai America 1995 Goku (far left) with a Chara Puchi Goku head on it. The one with a shell on his back looks great. What in the world is that?
Another fantastic choice is the Magnet Action Goku, particularly if you slice off the bottom of his oversized feet and remove the magnets. He's somewhat articulated although half of the arm articulation is useless, and there's a Krillin from the same line and they match well.

I love your Dragon Ball collection! I always look at your DBZ customs, but you've made such fantastic Dragon Ball ones. Kid Goku is so cute. I want to get the magnet one, I've had it in my eBay watch list for I don't know how long haha.
The one with the shell in my picture is actually a bootleg of a Banpresto keychain I believe. I saw it pop up on eBay a few weeks back and had to get him!
Someday maybe I'll finish my DB Yamcha and Tien. I miss customizing, but I'm addicted to video games currently, so I can't tear myself away. Also, since I sit 8 hours a day, I don't like sitting when I get home... so I lie down.

Branjita I completely understand that haha. I just bought myself the Nintendo Switch and I'm addocted to Zelda. I realllllly want to get back into customizing, but I'm out of sculpting material at the moment and I never think to buy it.

ssj2dakota (or anybody else...?) are you planning on getting Scultures 7 Broly? Leung Gokou on Facebook told me it is 16cm which is 6.25 inches, which would make it pretty close to scale I think.
I am hoping someone else is willing to be brave and be the first to buy it and measure it (or show it with 5 inch scale figures) because I'm worried it could be too big and I would feel foolish for buying it, as I don't even really like Broly as a character too much. And with him being on his tip-toes flying, it's hard for me to guess at how he'd look or if 16 cm is accurately measured.
If it scaled like this it would be close to perfect (actually, maybe a little too small since he is on his tip toes), but I simply don't know.
The legs ended up really short like I feared while looking at that pic above. If the figure ends up being too short, height can definitely be added to the legs and at that point I might actually make him flat footed so he could stand without a base. ... ... might as well fix the hair too lol.
I won't buy it unless the face/head is the right size to blend into my 5 inch scale collection though. That's the most important thing to me, or the figure is useless to me.

I had no idea. I am very intetested in this...I was actually wondering about the size of the piccolo...I will certainly buy this to try. He looks a bit odd though a non ss hair sculpt with that color and isnt he a bit bulky for non ss? Does anybody know if it was based in a soecific image of broly?
The hair doesn't look very good, I think it's from the transformation, but you'd probably have to pause at just the right second of the movie. It would have been better if it was like the image I photoshopped into the pic.
I am super interested in this though if it ends up being close enough to scale I can either put it directly into my collection or lengthen the legs and then do so.
Doom, I'm thinking the safest answer to that is "yes"
Or "I'm not sure"
Dakota, maybe when it's not brand new we'll be able to find them for like $15 + shipping like Yamcha unfortunately ended up being. I paid at least $45 to $60 for mine because I was scared and pre-ordered...

I had an ebay seller from Indonesia tell me broly had a release date of 6-8-17 and that he had them in hand. He sold me one for 33$ shipped. We shall see what he truly looks like next to sbc broly in a couple of weeks. I just ordered a megahouse x-retro Hero and princess Snake set. I fear snake will be too large but I'm pretty sure Hero will scale perfectly.
Does anyone have any of the figures in this picture that they could put next to an Irwin or Jakks Goku figure? I could probably find some similar comparisons with Figuarts SS2 Gohan, and do some complicated Photoshop thing to try to figure this out, but I figured I would ask.
Can anyone take a picture of Figuart SS2 Gohan next to preferably the Irwin Goku in this picture? Or one of the common Jakks Gokus that doesn't use the huge Tien-size body?
My initial thought, that I've been trying to hold in, is that the Broly figure might be perfect, just needing his legs lengthened a little bit (because I'm too much of a perfectionist) OR the face (in particular) might be a little too large compared to Irwin/Jakks figures and he might stick out like a bit of a sore thumb, kind of like how how some of the oversized Irwin/Jakks figures don't blend in with the scale of the others.
If I remember right, Figuarts SS2 Gohan has a face about the same size as Irwin faces and he's about the same height as the 24-year-old-looking-SS-Gohan that Irwin made, so I'm thinking that Broly is likely just about perfect and totally worth getting. I just want to wait and see though...
