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!

It looks as though the hair on this version is all one part, as opposed to individually articulated like on the original. However, that side-by-side with the Awakening Goku somehow gives me hope that
A. We can take the SSj3 head off the body and put the SWA Goku head on in its place. B. We can repaint the coming God Goku's head and essentially have a new base form Goku to hold us over. C. Super Saiyan 3 Goku's body will make any other Goku head look awesome.
The review linked to here has really cool pics! I must say... he looks really, really good.
And here is a google translation of the review:
Whole body. Super Saiya 3 was out earlier, but this time it was renewed with a new body. The color of the waydog has also changed considerably. face. Faithfully reproduce the villain face like Super Saiyan 3. The texture of the skin as well as recent things was also good. I also have a clean sharp forehead bang. In addition, this time it is convenient for your eyes or normal face to smile. A glaring face with different expression. For the first time appearance for reappearance This face is on the right eye. Personally it is slightly subtle because how to decorate is limited. Screaming face with different expression. With expressions to be used at the time of reproducing the deadly technique etc., although the feeling is somewhat large, the eye is generally good although there is a big feeling. Clenching face of different expression. This is also a battle expression that looks good for usability. Each part etc. Costume is my usual way. The color of orange and blue is almost the same as the awakening version. Waist circumference. Arms and legs. Here is the state where the dojo is in a beautiful state, but the body type was almost the same as the previous awakening version. back. Three long hair at the back is a ball joint and slightly movable as in the old version. However, there was no gap as much as the old version. It was a method of inserting the circle of the angel in the hole of the gap of the hair like the old version. option. Other soul stage act 4 is also included. With old version. The modeling of hair seems to have been diverted, but others have been renewed, the texture etc has become much better. With awakened version. As the neck has a special structure just like the old version, it was impossible to replace the head. Appropriately how many? Rush. Because the hair is long, there is much interference there, but the body joints etc. are almost unchanged from the awakening Goku.
A soul stage is attached, but due to the volume of the hair it is quite heavy so it is essential to retighten the screw. Kick. Because it is a new body, the mobility is excellent anywhere. Also included is a wrist for instantaneous movement. A wrist for reproducing the usual Kamehame wave is also attached. Komehame wave. The shoulder is making it easy to bend inward so this movement is natural as well. The circle of the angel is almost uncomfortable in the attached state even in the attached state because the hole of the attachment shaft is small. Dragon head. I finished with one piece using the aura effect. That's it, it was a review of SHFiguarts Super Saiyan 3 Son Goku. Goku of Super Saiyan 3 was out earlier, but this time it was renewed as a new model with a new body. It was quite a long time ago that an old version of Super Saiyan 3 came out so dramatically improved such as the color of the arrival clothes and the texture of the skin and the movements are also easy to play as new bodies are used I was finished in a high degree of completion. Dragon ball has a lot of other characters I want also, but I want you to put out a monstrous fish that will make you fight this time in Goku. SHFiguarts Tianjin Rice, Cure Whip, (true bone engraving recipe) Masked Rider Eternal ( etc.) (Soul web shop)
These pics are fantastic, truly.
