SuperVegeta111, calm down, man. No one here is trying to single you out. For goodness sake, people are expressing their opinions overs figures. This forum is not a place full of sheep and honestly, most everyone I've interacted with is really cool. This reminds me of the arguments on the old DBT over Figuarts. Someone took it personally when a few people mentioned a flaw or two they saw. There wasn't any personal vendetta, it was just an opinion. Same situation here. No one has been rude, but you've been telling us "F you." That's rude. Just chill, no one has a secret burning hatred for you.

Well, it's certainly getting a little heated around here, lately... Anyways...
There are dozens and dozens of figures I'd have loved to see from either Irwin or Jakks (but most likely Irwin as I had many more of them)
1. Turles and all of his Crusher Corps 2. All forms of Cooler and his Armored Squadron 3. Transformed Janemba 4. Bardock's Crew 5. History of Trunks Future Gohan 6. Androids/Cell Yamcha 7. 100% Full Power Frieza (with removable arm and lower half) 8. A Complete Ginyu Force 9. Guys like Zarbon (regular and transformed), Dodoria, Cui, Blueberry, Raspberry, Banan, Sui, Appule, Orlen, Iru, Frog-Face, etc. 10. Both forms of Android 13 plus an Android 14 and 15 pack. 11. Dr. Wheelo's Bio Warriors 12. King Vegeta, little Prince Vegeta, Nappa w/hair 13. Battle Damaged Android 16 14. Other World guys like Olibu, Torbie, Froug, Arqua, etc. 15. More Kais 16. Paragus 17. Battle Damaged Saiyan Saga Vegeta 18. All of Garlic Jr.'s henchmen 19. Goz and Mez 20. Princess Snake

I just wish bran and Adam would have worked at Irwin before they went under so we would have gotten amazing figures like these or the ones we did get would have looked 100 times better I can only imagin what all figures they would have talked them into making we would have had so many crazy characters lol

I agree Adam both of those figures r amazing both are super clean and highly detailed. They would have been the must have Irwin figures if they came out back in the day heck they still would be today.I swear y'all should make Ur own packaging for them i think they would look awesome in there own packing with like some kick ass cardback that looks like its continuing irwin with series12
I'm late to the party and I'm not one to re-fan the flames but Branjita is 100% correct that the Jakks Recoome IS the Irwin one. This isn't up for debate. People who say otherwise are just trolling or don't understand at all how the toy manufacturing process works. First a prototype sculpt is made and then later refined down the production line (adding/removing articulation, increasing/decreasing details or paint etc). Irwin did all the hard work of sculpting it and Jakks modified it for production. As you can see in the pics it even has the exact same rips and tears in most of the clothing on both versions. Also, you are basing your assumptions on an EARLY Irwin prototype. Nobody knows how far along Irwin was in the production of this particular figure. No debates or arguments anymore about this please as it's just childish.

Lol, I accidentally put my response as part of the quoted text in the previous comment. I'll just post my response below to avoid confusion.
@ Branjita I actually enjoyed series 5 very much. Other than Vegeta's blue suit being too light, it was all done well enough. I mean, the thing about it was that it had simplicity. I saw what they tried to attempt in series 6 but lets be real, other than Cell (aside from his missing purple cheeks) and 16, the paint jobs there were abysmal. Like you said, the speckles in the hair, 19's paint job completely wrong and ugly, and I remember some unnecessary sloppy dark brownish/orangish lines in the hair/skin ridges or indentations. Some of these bad undertaken qualities stuck with them in the following series'. Its great to try at some detail but if not done right, it is very unattractive and takes away from the beauty of the sculpt. Series 5 did have a good sculpt to all of their figs, and because of that, its my opinion that the only justified criticism deserved is that its "boring", not really "bad" but the former. While the paint job is not in harmony with one's tastes, the great sculpt remains intact. But an over-detailed paint job can harm the status of the sculpt more so than the "under-done" job. In the manner that it will be logically used in association with adjectives such as "horrible" and "bad", etc.
So series 5 was too simple and series 6 was overdone. There has to be a happy median between them. But if it was up to me to choose between complexity and simplicity, I'll go with simplicity any day. While both are not what we need, simple appearances better retain the sculpt. This my opinion of course. Dr. Gero and Future Trunks in Armor were done very well, even if the plastic was not painted over. At least the color was accurate, unlike SSJ F. Trunks.
Like others mentioned, sometimes if the quote is really big you have to do the bbcode method to get below it or it's hard to place your cursor.
I think the sculpt of the figures in series 5 were fine other than Dr. Gero's funny mustache, too long of legs and arms, and Goku's particularly disappointing "driving hands" that I wish were only on the gold haired one that came with capsule vehicle 341.
I'm not sure what race Dr. Gero was supposed to be in the show, but I was disappointed he was not given brown skin at minimum. It's kind of like if they made Turles and didn't give him his kind of strange lavender/khaki skin tone.
