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!

Today we’d like to spotlight something really cool we found in our travels over on Instagram. The fine folks over at Can of Beams have been making high end custom effects pieces compatible with SH Figuarts Dragonball Z and other lines that really make the figures come to life on your shelves. Goku gets his Kamehameha, Vegeta gets his
Big Bang Attack Final Flash, and Piccolo gets his Special Beam Cannon. They have a ton more, plus pieces for S.H. Monster Arts, Gundam, Figma, Naruto, and recently even Marvel Legends!
The quality is really top notch, crystal clear solid plastic with fades and gradients throughout so it isn’t just a colored blob. Each one is unique and fits with the character they are designed for. Each effect piece has a peg hole to use with display stands. Previously they were tuned for Tamashii stands but Can of Beams have moved to Obitsu compatability since their pegs are a bit longer and the stands themselves are a bit cheaper and more versatile.
Can of Beams produces these things in waves and puts them up on eBay when they are ready to go, with notice. Check his account here for items, and keep an eye on his website for new effects and for a heads up on when they are going up for sale. You can also follow them on Facebook to keep up to date. Hit their ordering page for details on how that works and even commission a custom piece!
Can of Beams let us check out pieces for Goku, Vegeta and Piccolo, plus some standard energy balls that could be used by anyone. We’ve run them through a quick photo session – check out how they look in action after the break!
