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!

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…

Figuarts DBZ Vegeta 14

Vegeta. Vegeta. Vegeta. That’s who’s up next in The Toyark’s S.H. Figuarts Dragonball Z catch up galleries. This release featured Vegeta from the Saiyan Saga in full armor. He came with a scouter for the eye, multiple faces and hands, two tail pieces, energy blast effect pieces, and even a crushed scouter as seen in the famous meme “It’s Over 9000!”. This Vegeta did not disappoint, so let’s take a look at over 35 shots after the break!

And, since we are running catch up here, we wanted to let you know that Frieza is already in our system and available to view. He would have been next in line after Vegeta in order of release. Feel free to hop on over and check him out too!

Figuarts DBZ Cell 28

Perfect Cell is up in our S.H. Figuarts Dragonball Z catch up galleries as we work towards having a complete set here at! Cell was a natural choice for the line since many of the figure choices and looks are based on Cell Saga. He features a wide range of posing action, several faces and hands, and an effects piece simulating an energy blast and ripped up ground to match. Depending on how you view Vegeta, this was the first real deal bad guy of the line, 2 years in. Take a look at over 25 images and check our thoughts after the break!

Make sure to check back over the weekend as we finish up our SHF DBZ catch up galleries!

Enough of this cape.

The Toyark is catching up with S.H. Figuarts Dragonball Z galleries, one a day till we’re done! SDCC 2012 Exclusive Gohan is up on the roster today, repainting a highly sought after regular release Gohan. This was the Bluefin / Tamashii Nations exclusive for the show that year, doing Gohan up in Anime colors like they did for Goku the year before. He rocks a very colorful purple and darker skin tone. Check out our shots of one of the hardest to get pieces in the line after the break!

Stop back all week as we finish up our SHF DBZ galleries!

Figuarts DBZ Trunks 013

The S.H. Figuarts Dragonball Z catch up gallery train is rolling on today with fan favorite Trunks! Trunks is the only figure to feature a full set of hair and faces for his normal and Super Saiyan modes. He also comes with his trusty sword and sheath. A busy set indeed, let’s take a look at 30 shots of him after the break!

Make sure to check each day as we run through all the DBZ SHF figures to date!

Figuarts SS3 Goku 030

Toyark’s S.H. Figuarts Dragonball Z catch up galleries continue today with Super Saiyan 3 Goku! It uses the base Goku body with a new head, but boy is the head a big addition. The Super Saiyan 3 hair is long, yet still spikey so it weighs almost as much as the figure. While not my favorite version of Goku, it’s still a solid addition to any SHF DBZ shelf, so let’s take a look at over 45 shots of him in action after the break!

Make sure to check back every day for new DBZ SHF galleries until we have them all up and done!
