Figuarts DBZ SDCC Goku 028

The Toyark’s S.H. Figuarts Dragonball Z catch up galleries continue today with the first San Diego Comic Con exclusive of the line – Super Saiyan Goku! This is a repaint of the regular release SS Goku, but with a more detailed paint application. Colors are meant to be “Anime” inspired, rather than from the Manga, so he’s rocking a darker orange gi. The hair also featured additional detailing, and the skin tone is darker than the regular release. This was the figure that really set the line off, showing what it could be, and suckered long time DBZ fans into buying all these guys over again. Check out over 35 shots and our thoughts after the break!

Make sure to check back every day for the next week+ as we share our high resolution SHF DBZ catch up galleries!

sideshow biker scout 02

Sideshow Collectibles dropped their Sixth Scale Star Wars Biker Scout and Speeder Bike for Pre-Order. There will also be Sideshow Exclusive versions of the figure and bike. The figure will run $189.99, and the bike will cost you $299.99. Check out over 20 images of the set after the break, details below! You can Pre-Order here.

Scout Trooper Sixth Scale Figure

Far more mobile than Stormtrooper units, Imperial Scout Troopers were assigned to the forest moon of Endor to patrol perimeters, perform reconnaissance missions, and identify enemy positions. Armed to provide rear-guard cover, the Scout Troopers are trained as efficient survivalists, equipped with lightweight armor, utility belt, a sidearm boot holster, and helmets with enhanced macrobinocular view plates for efficient target acquisition. Displayed with the modular forest terrain Scene Stealer Base Accessory*, or piloting the Sixth Scale Speeder Bike, these loyal scouts are ready to be assigned to their post.

The Sideshow Exclusive Edition of the Scout Trooper Sixth Scale Figure will also include an E-11 Long Rifle accessory.

Sixth Scale Speeder Bike

The highly-detailed rapid-transport reconnaissance vehicle boasts a sleek design with a military grade repulsorlift engine, power cell, and a simple blaster cannon for defense. Built for maneuverability, it features articulated foot pedals, engine flaps, and steering vanes to achieve the perfect action display, with or without a pilot.

The Sideshow Exclusive Edition of the Sixth Scale Speeder Bike will also include a special Aratech 74-Z Specification Card, which can be exhibited alongside the figure as a companion accessory.

YOU! Should be buying SHF DBZ.

The Dragonball saga of Goku and friends has been going on since 1985. Staying (for the most part) in continuity for almost 30 years. We’ve seen Goku rise from a child to having grand-children. Luckily Saiyans age much slower :). With the recent release of a new DBZ movie – Battle of the Gods – it doesn’t look like it’s going to stop any time soon.

The Dragonball Z S.H. Figuarts line has been around since late 2010, with the first release of Piccolo. The line has steadily progressed with 4 releases a year, currently boasting 16 pieces in all. I’ve personally been collecting it since SDCC 2011, where I randomly picked up a SDCC exclusive Goku while browsing around the Bluefin booth. I skipped a couple here and there, but eventually went back and got them anyway. The line continues to impress, giving fans of the series a modern, highly poseable, visually accurate version of the classic characters. It’s continually been a high point in my collecting, constantly looking forward to the next release more than most other figures and lines out there.

Today, we are starting a gallery-per-day trek to update with full galleries of every single Dragonball Z S.H. Figuarts available. We’ll go in order of release and at the end, we’ll collect it all on one page for everyone to reference moving forward. So, without further chatter, check out over 35 high res images of S.H. Figuarts Dragonball Z Piccolo!

Make sure to check back each day for the next 2 weeks as we celebrate SHF DBZ!
