Figuarts DBZ SDCC Goku 028

The Toyark’s S.H. Figuarts Dragonball Z catch up galleries continue today with the first San Diego Comic Con exclusive of the line – Super Saiyan Goku! This is a repaint of the regular release SS Goku, but with a more detailed paint application. Colors are meant to be “Anime” inspired, rather than from the Manga, so he’s rocking a darker orange gi. The hair also featured additional detailing, and the skin tone is darker than the regular release. This was the figure that really set the line off, showing what it could be, and suckered long time DBZ fans into buying all these guys over again. Check out over 35 shots and our thoughts after the break!

Make sure to check back every day for the next week+ as we share our high resolution SHF DBZ catch up galleries!

YOU! Should be buying SHF DBZ.

The Dragonball saga of Goku and friends has been going on since 1985. Staying (for the most part) in continuity for almost 30 years. We’ve seen Goku rise from a child to having grand-children. Luckily Saiyans age much slower :). With the recent release of a new DBZ movie – Battle of the Gods – it doesn’t look like it’s going to stop any time soon.

The Dragonball Z S.H. Figuarts line has been around since late 2010, with the first release of Piccolo. The line has steadily progressed with 4 releases a year, currently boasting 16 pieces in all. I’ve personally been collecting it since SDCC 2011, where I randomly picked up a SDCC exclusive Goku while browsing around the Bluefin booth. I skipped a couple here and there, but eventually went back and got them anyway. The line continues to impress, giving fans of the series a modern, highly poseable, visually accurate version of the classic characters. It’s continually been a high point in my collecting, constantly looking forward to the next release more than most other figures and lines out there.

Today, we are starting a gallery-per-day trek to update Toyark.com with full galleries of every single Dragonball Z S.H. Figuarts available. We’ll go in order of release and at the end, we’ll collect it all on one page for everyone to reference moving forward. So, without further chatter, check out over 35 high res images of S.H. Figuarts Dragonball Z Piccolo!

Make sure to check back each day for the next 2 weeks as we celebrate SHF DBZ!

Godzilla 60th Anniversary SDCC Figure 3

Bandai has revealed a Godzilla 60th Anniversary Figure that will be exclusive for San Diego Comic-Con 2014. Here’s some info direct from Bandai:

Godzilla 60th Anniversary Figure in Exclusive Diorama Packaging
To celebrate the 60th anniversary of the most iconic monster of all time, Bandai is releasing a limited edition 6.5“ vinyl Godzilla figure in exclusive diorama packaging. The “King of the Monsters” has taken many forms throughout his 60 year history, but fans have never seen a combination like this! If you dare ignore the danger warning and open this highly stylized and collectible Godzilla package, you will be unleashing a scene of epic destruction that only Godzilla can create. As you open the package a city amid destruction rises up to become the back-drop for your attacking Godzilla figure. With the colors of the burning city reflected across his massive body and his spine aglow with the tell-tale radioactive energy for his Atomic Breath, you can imagine the imminent destruction of his foes and hear the final echo of his iconic roar as he slips back into the darkest depths of the sea until he’s awakened once again.
