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!
S.H. Figuarts Dragonball Z Piccolo
Nice selection of hands and faces
Head is a pain to get in place with the cape on.
Nice solid outing to start off the line. The Manga colors were a turn off at first, but they’ve since rectified that with the SDCC Piccolo release in Anime colors. As a mold and figure though, good to go. Can rock him in silent watching mode with his training gear on, or, sans-cloak for battle time. If he were one or one of few, I don’t think I’d grab him. But as part of a 16+ deep line, he’s a must have for shelf fill.
Check back tomorrow for S.H. Figuarts
Gohan Super Saiyan Goku!
