Figuarts DBZ SS Gohan 008

The Toyark’s S.H. Figuarts Dragonball Z galleries continue today with Super Saiyan Gohan! Gohan is rocking his Cell Saga, post-training look, a tribute to Piccolo‘s Namekian training garb. He came with multiple hands and faces, and two sets of Super Saiyan hair – “chillin” and “angry”. Gohan was the 3rd release in the series and was later redone as a SDCC exclusive. Check out over 25 high res shots of Gohan in action after the break, and make sure to check back every day for a new DBZ SHF gallery till we have ‘em all done!

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 Toyark.com 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!

SDCC Vegeta 25

Woah, two DBZ Figuarts galleries in one day! Since Battle of the Gods is out now in US theaters (seriously, go see that) we are celebrating by doing up some Dragonball Z galleries today. Next up is the Bluefin Tamashii SDCC 2014 Exclusive Vegeta. This is a repaint of the non-Super-Saiyan Vegeta in colors seen during a couple early episodes of Dragonball Z. During Vegeta’s first appearance in the show and his travels to Earth, he rocked this funky color scheme. Once he arrived on Earth, he magically had the blue white and yellow colored armor we know so well. To celebrate this animation error we get this exclusive, perfect for a limited run offering at a con IMO. Check out over 30 pics of Vegeta in action after the break!

Figuarts from Bandai Tamashii has revitalized Dragonball Z action figures, giving us visually accurate figures as seen in the shows with tons of poseability and accessories.
