I see no one cares about spoilers nowadays, at least CR had a different thumbnail. I'm truly disappointed ANN.

In othernews i might as well state my opinion on this figure..
Pretty cool how they made his hair long like his actual transformation but if i'm gonna buy something like this i would be willing to shell out 70-100$ for quality.

I wonder what the center of gravity is on that figure. Gonna need a strategically placed shelf as well.

I for one am glad it is a fairly cheap figure because I want it but only for novelty reasons really. And yeah, the image alone is a spoiler, plastered on the front page of ANN. Oh well.

How is it a spoiler. The episode with Hunter Gon was released yesterday on Crunchyroll.

And this is the problem with today's anime community. =/
It's a spoiler because it's the latest episode and it's also STILL a spoiler for people that haven't watched hunter x hunter.

Don't give me that excuse that it will get them interested either i have heard it before.

Various uses for this figure (SFW)

Never followed the Hunter franchise but some of those pics were quite amusing.

How is learning about a character's super form a spoiler? And yeah, stuff like this is what gets me to read shounen manga. Are you telling me you'd never read Dragon Ball because you saw a picture of SSJ3 Goku?

It's a super form with some HUGE DRAWBACKS, not to mention anyone not familiar with the series would be totally confused by a kid suddenly gaining the appearance of an adult.

And i swear to god if you mention GT... Rolling Eyes

What does that first bit have to do with this discussion? I should also mention that I haven't watched/read Hunter x Hunter myself. Anyway, that confusion is what makes people want to read this stuff. Why is he suddenly older? Why is his hair so damn long? Those thoughts make Hunter x Hunter sound fun to me.

I'm not gonna lie; SSJ4 is what made me want to watch GT back in the day.

If you had all the time, 3 YEARS actually to read the manga, then you shouldn't complain about spoilers.

Infact, there should not be excuse. I immediately read the ENTIRE thing once they announced the Heaven's Arena at that time and I was dying of curiosity.

Everything, not to mention this is a spoiler from the Latest episode.
spoiler[Since Gon is most likely losing his ability to use nen so it's a one time ticket.]

And yet the majority will actually think..

Unfortunately the hair has to be twice as long to be to scale.
