I can def try and get a checklist going, and work in some of the alternate heads. Make it a more traditional sized pic, with rows. Don't want to get into all parts tho as that basically becomes a book. Maybe in a couple years for that
To be clear, you're just talking heads, not every face swap?
And RE: the side by side pic, I can do that. Need a bit of time though as I have a backlog of shoots and I JUST re-set up all these guys on my display shelf. Posed out and all.
I didn't think it would be necessary to try and include every part but I can see a few instances where optional parts would add to the image (Scouter Vegeta 1 with wrapped tail, scouter head/normal face, and the crossed arms, then Scouter Vegeta 2 with the open tail, yelling face, and crushed scouter hand). / Not necessarily EVERY face, but again, a few variations would be cool to see (SS1 Gohan anger face, SS2 Gohan normal/stoic face). Thinking again, I wouldn't mind a pic similar to the one above where it's just all the figures against a black background. Aside from a traditional checklist, can you also make a variation with just the figures on a black background?
not like I'm any position to rush you. I'll look forward to seeing it, though.

I have a suggestion/request. If you actually make a checklist can you include a small blank box somewhere near the images that can be filled in? Also, assuming you have multiples, can you include the multiples for figures that have more than one head part (Gohan SS1/SS2, Trunks/SS, Vegetto/SS, etc.)? I don't know how you would arrange the images but I think eight or nine figures per row would help fit everything into a single 1920x1080 image.
Another unrelated request, there's an image in your SDCC Broly gallery I liked quite a bit.
Could you recreate that image but with the SDCC and Premium Color exclusives on one side and the original releases on the other? Something like this, and preferably all in the same poses and positions.
the demand wasn't and still isn't there for 16 and Whis (even though 16 is a superb release). It's hard to say what will happen with Nappa. I'm not sure I see it staying at retail for more than a year...which is technically still plenty of time to hold off on buying it.
This is one instance where I don't mind the manga colors for a few reasons. It doesn't look terrible, I actually like the thought of having a Nappa and Raditz with similar armor colors like in the image above, there's always a chance for an anime accurate Premium Color edition (as much as I hate when Tamashii double dips), and the main reason I like this...the manga colors just so happen to match the "original animation colors", so this can be placed next to the SDCC 2014 Vegeta. If that isn't enough, repainting the armor should be quite simple, it would be easy to just make your own anime accurate version.

(just hope I'm not getting carried away by prototype images that differ greatly from the final version...)
Something else I'm noticing, it looks like the undersides of the armor parts will be painted. This is exactly what I wanted to see from the 2.0 versions of the figures, overall improvements that make the updates better than the original. I think it's safe to say here, this is undeniably better than the first release (with the possible exception of a lack of sculpted eyes which is still a disappointment).

Far as I'm concerned, Vegeta 2.0 is the first "perfect" release since Broly. See what a difference accurate colors make? Compared to the 2.0 SS Vegeta, I think this is an all around improvement. Not only does it look great, it can be considered accurate to both the anime and the manga. As much as I rant about the strange colors seen on Figuarts figures, it's only appropriate for me to give Tamashii glowing praise when they get the colors right. I desperately hope they stick with this pale orange skin tone on future figures (most of the saiyans with the exception of Trunks).
Nappa also looks perfect and I'm quite excited that it's finally coming out.

...then this Marvel Legends Venom might be a good choice. It was released last year so it should still be easy to get. There will be two significant issues though, resizing the joints so they can be repainted and figuring out how to deal with the shoulder sections, which will be quite difficult if you plan on keeping the articulation.
I don't want to jump the gun and say this arc was the best out of the entire series, that kind of statement requires more time, but for now...10/10 from me. A story fit for a movie. Expansion of established lore. A worthy villain, possibly the best so far. Future Trunks (with questionable blue hair...can't help it, it will always bug me). Focus on how much Vegeta has grown as a character. SSGSS Vegetto. A bit of lingering confusion here and there, but who cares. A superb arc.

The green parts on the prototype were too saturated. The ideal color should be closer to a light lime green.
To me, it was a textbook variant. Slightly different, visually appealing on it's own, but hardly necessary for a collection. The final version isn't that at all. It's exactly what a PCE figure should be, a general improvement over the original. Perfect? Maybe not (light purple joints), but it's very close. If I were a reviewer, this would get a 10/10 from me. I really like what I'm seeing.
