Shipping out in August 2022 is the Dragon Ball Z – S.H. Figuarts Cell First Form Action Figure. A preview image has been released by Tamashii Nations for the upcoming figure. The preview shows that Cell will include at last two portraits, and additional accessories are likely. Full details will be released soon. Click the banner image above for the preview image.
Tamashii Nations have dropped a new listing for S.H. Figuarts Dragon Ball FighterZ Android 21 – this time in her human form. For those who may not be up on it, Android 21 is a character first seen in the FigtherZ video game, an android who can power up into a Buu like body. She’s rocking her red and blue dress, heels, a white lab coat and that big hairdo. Her signature glasses are removable and it seems to come with at least one small energy effect piece.
An early round of releases will be available to coincide with DragonBall Games Battle Hour event in Japan, orderable via the Asobistore. It is said that the figure will eventually be available on Tamashii Web Shop at a later date. If that goes as normal, it should be a Premium Bandai exclusive in the US as well. None of that is 100% confirmed right now though.
Tentative release date is August 2022 for this early round. Asobistore orders start on January 19th. Retail is 6600 yen (~57 USD).
ICYMI – Android 21 had another release a while back in her Android / Buu-ish form. Check our gallery for that here.
Over the last week or so Bandai Tamashii Nations have been releasing pics, info and pre-orders for S.H. Figuarts Dragon Ball Super – Super Hero figures. The new movie will see old favorites come back to battle once more. Now those pre-orders are opening up via US retailers at very reasonable prices. Goku, Vegeta and Gohan are all hitting for around $35 USD, and Piccolo is a bit more due to being bigger at $38 USD. Piccolo is first up, arriving at US retailers in July, then the rest pop monthly through October. Check the links below to pick up your copies at our sponsors!

2022 will see the next Dragonball Super Movie titled Super Hero hit theaters world wide. There have been a couple teasers so far, and we got to see some figures at NYCC back in October. Bandai Tamashii Nations have put up product pages for the first four figures from the movie with a nice surprise – Ultimate Gohan. He’ll be back in fighting form, rocking his Namekian gear. The other three listed today were ones we saw at NYCC – Goku, Vegeta, and Piccolo.
Pre-Orders go live in Japan later today. They should hit US retailers for order soon after. These are all due to come out monthly starting in April (in Japan). USA times are usually about 2 months or so after that. All are general release in JP too, not exclusives. No word yet on official US status or timing, but it should be coming soon.

Quick gallery tonight for the S.H. Figuarts Event Exclusive Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan Kaio-Ken Son Goku! This first dropped at New York Comic Con 2021 at the show in person. I was there on Thursday and was able to snag a copy. As of yet there is no official time frame for online release, but Tamashii Nations and Bluefin Brands have said it will eventually be available via Premium Bandai.
The figure uses the base body of previous exclusive, Ultra Instinct Sign Goku. A new Super Saiyan head in blue along with a candy coating and slight red/pink tint to the skin is there to represent the powered up effect and round the figure out. He comes packed with a Tamashii Energy Effect in a two tone red and blue to match the power up.
We’ve run him for a quick set of pics, read on to check them out after the break! I have a bit of a DB SHF backlog so stay tuned for another group update later in the year.
