In this thread, we will be discussing anything and everything to do with the S.H. Figuarts SS3 Son Goku (2017 Edition). It's OK to go off topic, but let's try and mostly stay on the topic of SS3 Goku. Thanks!

Thanks for making the topic Timone! He looks pretty good to me. Good, not great. I'm not blown away. The hair could be longer and the figure lacks shading, but I assume this is just the prototype. Still, he's fantastic compared to the old one.
I'm really enjoying the improvements made to this figures hips compared to the other 2.0 mold releases. In the case of ss trunks, ss vegeta and bd gohan their hips/waist cuts are much wider apart and don't seem as even as this ss3 goku. The gap frosm gokus upper leg to his hip is very small and almost flush with the rest of his crotch area. Imo this looks WAY better and I wish they would have done this with all 2.0 mold releases, especially with trunks and vegeta.
I'm really indecisive about this figure. Obviously it's a huge improvement to the 1.0 version, but there are still some things that bug me.
For one, I am not so fond of the gi color. Even though it's accurate to some extend, I would prefer it to be more yellowish.
The grinning face (as seen in the Instant Transmission picture) is also not really one of my favorites. And what about the Dragon Fist picture? I can not even pinpoint what's bothing me about that one.
All in all, I hope the figure feels more "massive" or "epic" in person, than it does in the pictures.
I think they are reluctant to try to do a yellowish gi, because so many people didn't like how it turned out on the first SS3 Goku. Now, you might say that was brown and not yellow, but I think they still want to play it safe.
The hair isn't that long but on an articulated figure what are ya gonna do. Overall super hyped for this one!
