Time to run some catch up on our S.H. Figuarts Dragonball Z galleries! Today we are taking a look at the recent reissue of Trunks, this time in Premium Colors. (You can check his original gallery here.) Trunks gets more saturated tones to match up with his father’s reissue a couple months back. His release also addresses crazy after market prices like Vegeta’s did. Most notable changes here – richer Super Saiyan hair and blue on the jacket, and less accessories. Let’s take a look after the break courtesy of site sponsor The Toy Source!
S.H. Figuarts Dragonball Z Premium Color Trunks
Overall another good reissue to help collectors stay complete. The upgrades are nice, colors pop for sure. This isn’t a full reissue though, as a lot of the accessories were left out. You can see the comparison in these 2 pics (original | premium). Instead of 8 faces, we get 5 – 2 regular and 3 SS. Gone are both smiling faces and the regular open teeth angry face. Original had 7 pairs of hands, this round gets 5. Gone are the rounded open pair and the thumbs up pair. Skin tone is a tad lighter with less weathering/paint. Regular hair, pants, belt and boots are basically the same on both. One thing I noticed, you can see it slightly in the pictures, the new version is a tad shorter. Can’t tell if that’s just my copy or not, but I did my best to tighten things up and get them standing “the same”. In the end, the new version seems a tad smaller. Looks to be an altered torso. Could be plastic compression on a piece by piece basis tho. Not a big difference, but there, at least on mine. Bottom line this is a solid pick up for those looking for an arrival Trunks, and for those already with one – he pairs with Premium Colors Vegeta well in a father/son setup off to the side.
