hey guys, havent posted in awhile, hope everyone's having a good holiday. so i recently got back into collecting sh figuarts dbz, recently got me a nappa, and started into the dbs line, vegeta, beerus, etc now im trying to get me an ssgss/blue goku, but everywhere i go the price is ridiculous! $100+ for a figure thats barely a year old? can anyone tell me why the price is so high? i can understand the original cell, freeza and the others but those are much much older and harder to come by now. any input would be appreciated, thanks
Dragon Ball Figuarts retain value very well on top of once a figures release is done it adds value to that figure because its no longer available on top of god goku being a super popular character. I got mine off ebay for $65 bucks just gotta wait and strike when theres one for a decent price
SSB Goku was a Webshop Exclusive meaning that once he is sold out thats it. You have to go to resellers who will up the price a lot. Plus it's a Goku Figure so it will sell out. But I'd say give it a year or 2 and they are bound to make a 2.0 SSB Goku at some point.
Since they're rereleasing everything in this line on 2.0 molds, I'd wait for a new one. My only doubt is if they would go with Fukkatsu no F clothes or the current clothes in Super, since they appeared on screen way more than these.

While I would say that he's a tad overpriced these days, you need to consider that he was a web exclusive, meaning that he'd have a limited run. Unlike Awakening Goku, who isn't a web exclusive, SSGSS Goku cannot be produced anymore due to discontinuation. Your best bet as to finding an at least semi-decent price is eBay.

That being said... If you're not totally dead set on getting the official figure, there's a decent enough bootleg that I got for my custom Gohan that runs about $30-40 on eBay. Iirc the biggest issue with it was that the shadow color they used for the face was a bit orange, but it's less noticeable on the ssb head. And for a difference of $30 minimum... It's really me being nitpicky.
Edit: did some searching, and there's a few kinda garbage bootlegs as well, so be careful. If you're interested I can find listings for the one I can personally speak for.

oh i see, i wasnt aware that he was a web exclusive, i guess that make sense. oh well i guess ill just have to wait and hope he gets a 2.0 release, fingers crossed although the shf bootlegs have come a long way, im not a fan of getting them and would prefer the real deal. if i knew how to make customs i would totally look into it, alas my sculpting and painting skills are garbage and they'd come out looking worse than the bootlegs themselves lol, but thanks for the offer Majin Tomato
thanks everyone for the info, really appreciate it, hope everyone has a safe and happy new years!
