Upon receiving the last three SH Figuarts I was awaiting in the mail, I decided to make some room in my display cabinet for these guys! The display is still very much a work in progress for the time being, but I think the collection is shaping up quite nicely; considering about a month ago I had no idea of this line's very existence... You may notice there are a few non-SH figures on the shelf, they are there purely to help flesh out the collection. I am of two minds about a companion for the SS Vegeta, perhaps some input might help me decide. I was considering either Irwin android 19 or Jakks second form Cell. 19 would be posed as if he was running away from Vegeta's big bang attack and Cell would be posed hunched over, taking a uppercut to the abdomen. Which do you prefer?
My poor Saiyan Saga Vegeta seems to be experiencing the dreaded loose leg affliction. Was there a viable solution for this or not? Also, Cell seems to be loose all over; what's the deal there. Is that a common problem?
Awesome stuff so far SonKakarot. The Figuarts make for some amazing displays. As far as Vegeta and his loose leg I found just pushing it up into the socket seems to fix mine. Still haven't opened my Cell yet so I'll have to see if he has the same problems as yours.

I still haven't found a way to fix my vegetas loose leg and my cell was in good shape but he Deff didn't have as tight of joints as my other Figuarts figures right out of the box. I heard nail polish would fix vegetas leg but I wouldn't recommend it as I don't see how it would fix it. Great set up though they look amazing in that display cabinet
The cabinet is custom built. It was originally made for displaying oakley sunglasses and was modified to be wall hung and then re-painted.
Yep, he has that exact same problem; that and his neck joint doesn't work at all. What a shame it is so common place.
Yeah, I totally see how you interpreted it that way. I need to heighten the posts to be a bit elevated. It may well just be the camera angle.
It was supposed to represent the scene where Cyborg Frieza gets diced; just before, as he leaps upwards to avoid Trunks' burning attack. If you watch the scene Trunks actually attacks from the rear. Frieza becomes alerted by Trunks' battle cry and begins to turn about face, just in time to be cleaved in two by Trunks sword.

Soon Boddah, very soon! Now that I finally have a SS Gotenks, thanks to Loki, all I require is ultimate Gohan! Then and only then will I re-post my SBC collection. As for the Irwin/Jakks figures they're all in plastic baggies in storage, so that may prove more difficult. Especially now that the Figuarts have taken up residence over their old dsiplay shelf.
I have already made plans on how to disply Krillin and Goku when they're released I know that Vegeta's shoulder pauldrons are easily removed and re-attached, but what of his mud-flaps. Are they able to be removed and re-attached also? I haven't the heart to try removing them, as yet.

Dear god no! I only wanted to know if they can be temporarily removed and later re-attached. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out how to permantly remove them and I would only consider doing so if I had another Vegeta spare. I've already got the sword, now all I need now is Krillin!

He looks so freaking badass holding that SH Figuarts sword, doesn't he Bran! He looks perfectly scaled with Perfect Cell, although Piccolo is a monster alright! I suppose Namekians get bigger with every fusion, don't they? He was on par with the gangly Imperfect cell, after absorbing both Nail and Kami - so I suppose he would be that big, wouldn't he.
Turns out those Tamashii stands are modular afterall! Thanks to those teeny tiny srews, securing each joint. Because of this I was able to splice two additional bars into both stands, creating some serious heigth. Though I couldn't quite fit them back in at full stretch, so I had to scale it down some in order to squeeze back into the cabinet.
