Got mine today!
So I actually have had no issues with the faceplates whatsoever, so I'm wondering exactly how common that issue is... Mine fits on pretty tight, more so than any of my other figures. No paint issues, but there's some spots where there's little excess plastic nubs that weren't clipped off very smoothly, but I've seen that on some of my other SHF figures. The belt is definitely very loose, though not enough that it wobbles or anything, just not snug in place like the other figures. The neck gap is very noticeable. The painted chest thing IS pretty weird, and I wish they hadn't done it, but the shade of paint they chose matches very well with mine, so it doesn't really bother me too much. The elbows are really a bummer, it's hard to even pull off some of his iconic poses from the Super Buu fight. I think I'm gonna have to pose him with the crossed peace signs, that's the only really cool recognizable one I can really pull off aside from a generic fighting pose.
Overall, I would say that it's a lot better than I was worrying it would be from some of the reviews, but the mere fact that these QC issues are so inconsistent is itself a problem. But I guess just know that it's at least a gamble, and not a sure thing that these problems would be present on one that you buy...? Not a tremendous comfort, but hey, I ended up with a pretty nice one, so it's not impossible.
Finally caved and picked him up. I must say, he's much better than I thought! I don't have any of the faceplate issues that some reported, so it's definitely not all of them. I reaaally wish they made him smaller though. His parts are larger than 18s, so no way they couldn't have made him more to scale. I don't understand it! In the end though, he's definitely a keeper, and one of their best to date imo. 2019 is really aiming to blow us away though!!!

Can anyone compare him to the DB Kid Goku body?
I'm betting this has something to do with them testing the full flexibility of the 2.0 body with smaller parts (and cheaper price thus the painted torso) and that he may be a bit over scaled. I wonder if they had to sacrifice scale for the integrity of the figures joints/parts...

Height and body size if you could. Ive only seen Gotenks in height comparison to teen Gohan and we all know he isn't "Teen Gotenks". Teen Gotenks would have been nice to see int he new movie but well...
