Can of Beams DBZ 11

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!

SDCC 2015 Goku 36

Back in June of this year, Tamashii Nations released a repaint of Son Goku featuring his Go Kanji logo, a new belt, and a new face. Everyone was down, except that it was limited to 300 units and available only in person, at Mexican event. I think most of the DBZ SHF fans first reaction was – WTF? Fast forward to SDCC 2015, and that same figure has been released, this time as a Comic Con exclusive, just with a different box. That definitely bumps the numbers up and lets the hardcore fans get a hold of him for a much more reasonable price. We were able to get a hold of him finally and have done up a photo shoot showing off Goku’s new digs. Check out over 35 HD shots of him in action after the break!
