Android 17 SHF 39

The Toyark is happy to continue it’s galleries for S.H. Figuarts Dragonball Z figures today with Android 17! Android 17 was a natural next step after the previous release of his robo-sister, Android 18. Key players in the Cell Saga, they are definitely worthy of some shelf space along with Cell, Trunks, SS Vegeta, and Gohan, all previously released. So, how does Android 17 stack up with the rest? Check out our thoughts and over 50 shots in action after the break courtesy of site sponsor Entertainment Earth!

Oh, and for those who never jumped into Dragonball Z but have thought about it – the condensed, remastered, unedited (for blood etc) version begins re-airing again on the network that started the US DBZ craze over a decade ago – Cartoon Network, and specifically, Toonami. Now a more adult block, weekly instead of daily, Toonami will be airing these starting with episode 1 THIS WEEKEND. Set your DVR’s now, check the trailer below!

Star Wars Movie Realization Samurai Stormtrooper

At the Tokyo toy Fair 2014, Bandai had on display a few new Movie Realization Samurai Star Wars Figures. The pics here aren’t that great, but they do give us our first look at:

  • Samurai Stormtrooper
  • Samurai Sandtrooper
  • Samurai Royal Guard

The photos come courtesy of Toy People News. We’ll update when more photos and info becomes available. Read on to check them out.

Bandai Tamashii Nations is holding an event showing off new goods from a wide array of properties, and Dragonball Z had a ton of new products revealed. From the S.H. Figuarts line we now have Buu, times two. Super Buu with Gohan absorbed, and Super Buu with Gotenks absorbed. Also seen was a full on Super Saiyan 4 Goku. Couple that with a Buu Saga adult Gohan, and the previously seen Vegito and it’s clear S.H. Figuarts will be moving to a Buu Saga theme next year. We also get a look at previously seen or released figures like Android 17 and Android 16.

Along with these S.H. Figuarts figures were a selection of new Effects pieces. Green Wind, Electricity, Clouds, Wilderness (perfect DBZ accessory), Energy (Alpha), Explosions (Gray and Orange), Lava and a Light Stand. These add to the Fire and Impact versions out last year so your displays should be much more dynamic soon.

Rounding out the DBZ themed part of the event, we have new Zero and Zero EX figures. For Zero, we see new Radditz, Bardock, another Goku, and Vegeta. For Zero EX, we have SS Trunks and Super Buu.

Overall a pretty solid DBZ showing, it’s gonna be a busy year if they actually all get released!

S.H. Figuarts Dragonball Z Line Up (Sept 2014)

The Toyark has run it’s course and caught up with the S.H. Figuarts Dragonball Z line! Over the last 10 days, we’ve shared high res galleries for all the figures in the line, currently 16. We did this because while Toyark does cover everything, each of us here on staff digs certain things a little bit more at any given time. Right now, I’m really digging this line, and was happy to run through galleries for them. Hopefully it helps anyone thinking of jumping in and collecting the line do so.

We’ve also created our first “JUMP OFF!” page for SHF DBZ, a dedicated point for everything related to a line or theme. SHF Dragonball Z will be hand curated there, adding new galleries and news, rumors, and anything else cool we run across. So head on over and check out the S.H. Figuarts Dragonball Z Reference Guide!

Oh, and after the break, enjoy two final images from our gallery sessions, 2 mega group shots showing these bad boys in action!

And.....

We’re finally here, caught up at last! Toyark’s S.H. Figuarts Dragonball Z galleries are complete with the addition of today’s SDCC 2013 Piccolo. Piccolo continues the trend of reissuing previously Manga colored released in Anime proper colors for SDCC. Key differences include darker more saturated colors all around, a blue belt and pink instead of yellow on the arm details. He’s otherwise the same as his mass release which you can check here.

To wrap up, SDCC Piccolo is the last of our “catch-up” galleries for the line. The rest are already done and in the system from the past year or so. Krillin, Goku, Android 18 and SDCC Vegeta were all done as they came out. Use the links below to check them out after Piccolo!

The remaining S.H. Figuarts Dragonball Z Galleries – Already Done!

Check back tomorrow and we’ll finish things up nice with some more shots and a dedicated SHF DBZ page! Until then, you can check…
