Dragonball S.H.Figuarts Perfect Cell
Coming in November 2012, the next Dragonball S.H.Figuarts figures is a villain and it is the Perfect Cell!!
This is a bitter sweet news for me as true to my prediction, this is a limited Tamashii Web exclusive in Japan and will be selling at 4725 yen. If you are like me in the rest of Asia, you will be paying a lot to get this figure. However if you are located in US or Canada, you will be getting in affordable pricing....
The perfect cell is nicely sculpted very true to the manga and the anime Dragonball kai.
It can do good pose with movement not only to joints of hands and legs but the wing too. Not to mention different changes of facial expression and some hands.
Special effect like kamehameha effect parts is good for display and playing.
So it seems Dragonball S.H.Figuarts is going on a safe investment to do limited figures to bait those older collectors. Sad to say collectors outside Japan in the rest of Asia may have to pay lot to get these series.
As for me, I think I will stand like the perfect cell pose below...
If you are wondering how much will it be selling over at Singapore end, it would be around SGD$100 which it should be around SGD$66. That is how crazy the pricing is when it is web exclusive in Japan.
Anyway as good as the improvement by Bandai in this series, the pricing just ain't friendly for us in the rest of Asia and I double they would give a damn even when they have an office and distribution here.
