These are going live this week, 2 days before the Event Exclusives are. They are not however event exclusives. Right now, there is no close date for Pre-Orders so you still have some time beyond this week (most likely). You can check the order pages here:
Also don’t forget – tomorrow starts orders for the Event Exclusive items including SSG Goku, Nappa, Beerus, Whis, and DB Stages. Good luck to all trying for those!

Here is our full look at the 2020 formerly SDCC exclusive Android 18. These are slightly updated from our initial round of pics. Android 18 is an updated version of her 2014 release. No new parts, but new paint all around. The eyes specifically have a bigger iris. The jean jacket is a lighter blue and leggings are black, overall tones are less saturated. These are a great release because they get them in the hands of collectors who missed the first round, but do change things up a bit from the originals.

Tamashii Nations 2020 exclusives, which would have kicked off at SDCC next week (:tearz) – are officially in the house! We received an early care package and ran them quick for some base shots. Included are the S.H. Figuarts Android 17 and 18 in event exclusive colors, S.H. Figuarts UI Sign Goku, S.H. MonsterArts Godzilla 2019 in event exclusive colors, and S.H. Figuarts ZERO statues of Vegito Blue and OG Broly.
All in all it’s a sweet line up. Android 17 and 18 have been highly sought after on the secondary market, and these re-issues in slightly different colors allows folks to catch up. Still exclusive prices, but not that crazy secondary markup. UI Sign Goku is great, I’ve been wanting a ripped undershirt version of Goku since day 1, and here he is. Alternate colored heads pop right on as well. We’ll do a more detailed gallery for each of those soon.
Clear blue Godzilla exclusive – yes please, plays well with light and the epic poster tones. The Zero pieces – always admired them from a distance, and now that they are in hand I am impressed. If I had space, I would gladly rock these alongside traditional S.H.F. Broly is especially impressive in hand.
Read on to check them all out, 160+ pics including comparison shots for the S.H. Figuarts DB pieces. They are up for pre-order now on Premium Bandai, no waiting! Grab yours while they last!

Bandai Tamashii Nations is holding an event showing off new goods from a wide array of properties, and Dragonball Z had a ton of new products revealed. From the S.H. Figuarts line we now have Buu, times two. Super Buu with Gohan absorbed, and Super Buu with Gotenks absorbed. Also seen was a full on Super Saiyan 4 Goku. Couple that with a Buu Saga adult Gohan, and the previously seen Vegito and it’s clear S.H. Figuarts will be moving to a Buu Saga theme next year. We also get a look at previously seen or released figures like Android 17 and Android 16.
Along with these S.H. Figuarts figures were a selection of new Effects pieces. Green Wind, Electricity, Clouds, Wilderness (perfect DBZ accessory), Energy (Alpha), Explosions (Gray and Orange), Lava and a Light Stand. These add to the Fire and Impact versions out last year so your displays should be much more dynamic soon.
Rounding out the DBZ themed part of the event, we have new Zero and Zero EX figures. For Zero, we see new Radditz, Bardock, another Goku, and Vegeta. For Zero EX, we have SS Trunks and Super Buu.
Overall a pretty solid DBZ showing, it’s gonna be a busy year if they actually all get released!
This week marks the return of Dragonball Z to the US market with the theatrical release of Battle of the Gods. The story started way back in 1985 and hasn’t stopped, keeping one continuous canon that mostly works :). Over 440 episodes, 17+ movies, direct to video and tv specials, a couple of horrible live action movies, plus merchandise spanning almost 30 years keeps this train moving. S.H. Figuarts from Bandai Tamashii has revitalized Dragonball Z action figures, giving us visually accurate figures as seen in the shows with tons of poseability and accessories.
Today we’re looking at Android 18, the first of the Androids (all are planned now). Check out over 30 shots of Android 18 in action after the break, courtesy of site sponsor Entertainment Earth!
