I don't think it's that they're specifically avoiding Tien and Yamcha and other minor characters but we have to start thinking less like collectors and more like a business. Some minor characters might be wanted in particular groups (this forum) but they're really not THAT wanted among the majority of casual DBZ fans. Will Tien and Yamcha really sell like someone like Broly or Vegito? Even a minor character like Krillin who played more important roles in both Dragonball and DBZ didn't sell out for a while. Even now, his price hasn't gone up as dramatically as others.
I'm confident this line is going to release A LOT of characters. We can already see they're releasing more and more figures every year and actually planning their releases to coincide with Dragonball media such as Kai and the new movies. We might not get the minor characters we want as soon as we want them but they will eventually get released, we just have to give it time. They have to time how they release characters that aren't guaranteed money makers in a way that they can be sure to get profits. I hope I'm making some sense guys
with the new movie I hope will see Tien and Roshi (with the outfits from Saiayn/Cell sagas, NOT the outfits from the new movie) and if we'll get Tien we HAVE to get chaotzu WITH HIM. and if we'll get Tien and Chaotzu we need to get Yamcha cause he'll be the only one missing from the Z fighters.
You haven't figured it out yet? I'm the Saiyan who came all the way from Earth for the sole purpose of beating you. I am the warrior you've heard of in legends, pure of heart and awakened by fury. That's what I am. I AM THE SUPER SAIYAN, SON GOKU!
I have most of them besides almost all the SDCCs, SS3 Goku, Trunks, and SS Vegeta.
We are in the same boat brother. Although the SDCC ones dont interest me there just color variations for the anime. I want that Trunks soooooo bad back before I was collecting these I bought a Beelzemon D-arts figure an I saw Trunks for $40AUD thinking to myself 'This looks awesome I should get it.' Years later now and I want it more then ever.

Well...I'm lacking in funds at the moment. By the time I can afford him, it'll probably be too late. I've had this kind of thing happen to me a lot. See something is still a good price, but I can't afford it yet. Once I can, it's too late.
I really regret not picking up Broly from my local comic shop a couple months ago when they were having both a 50% & 75% off sale. Really REALLY regret it.
Right now I just have Regular Goku that I Got a a convention for $40. I was collecting all kinds of figuarts except for DBZ for some reason over the years and now I have to play catch up but with how prices on these sky rocket that prolly wont be happening and I'll just have to go forward with future releases.

Most people have Manga SS Goku and Broly. After seeing Broly, I had to get him, and figured I'd get SS Goku too, but I'd stop after those two. Didn't work out that way I've got Broly, Manga SS Goku, Manga Piccolo, Goku, Krillin, Scouter Vegeta, 16, 17, 18, Perfect Cell, Frieza. Also have two Vegito's and two Manga Gohan's on the way later this month!
I currently have all of them right now besides Vegetto that just came out. I actually bought an SDCC Gohan for $50 bucks on eBay I ended up selling the Gohan I had for $180 so I made some profit there.
