S.H. Figuarts Dragonball Z revved up this year in 2015. We’ve seen 5 releases so far, 2 more coming, plus today’s shoot – Ultimate Gohan – for a total of 8. To date, 24 different figures have been released! The slow but steady pace has given us a good set of classic characters in their various forms, and doesn’t show any sign of slowing down. Ultimate Gohan adds to the roster, continuing into the Buu Saga that Vegetto started earlier this year. Gohan rocks his orange and blue gi just like his father as seen in the show, all grown up now. Let’s take a look after the break along with some additional thoughts.

The Toyark’s S.H. Figuarts Dragonball Z Resurrection of F galleries continue with Super Saiyan God Goku! Goku‘s upgraded form features a remold of the upper body giving him a new gi along with it’s extension down below the waist. New wristbands and boots are also in play. The hair is also new with his newly acquired blue tone. Hands, legs and facial expressions get carried over from the previous Goku releases. Of note with this figure, the plastic quality is different, in a good way. Much firmer overall, a bit heavier. Joints stay in place and hold a pose. Pieces pop on/off with a snap. It also has a matte feel to it. I hope this is something they continue because the piece feels quality in the hand, an upgrade over previous releases. SSG Goku is due out later this month but was released early at New York Comic Con 2015. We grabbed him and ran him through a session – head on in to check out over 50 shots of him battling RoF Golden Frieza!
The Dragonball Z S.H. Figuarts line carries on, shifting over to characters from the recent Resurrection of F movie. The first two getting the movie treatment are Goku and Frieza with extensive remolds to better match their look from the film. Frieza features remolding on almost every part even though it may not seem so on quick glance. Head, hands and feet are all a bit smaller, the tail is new, armor on the limbs is different as is the crotch and torso. It may just be an entirely new sculpt. He features a two-tone metallic gold and dark purple throughout. Overall it’s a solid figure which represents this upgraded version well. He is due out later in the month but he was released early at New York Comic Con 2015, and we got our hands on him. Check out over 55 shots of him battling SSG Goku after the break!
