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.
