Bandai have fully revealed that new body style Goku from a while back. Labeled Imagination Works – the figure is roughly 1/9 scale (7 inches) and features a hybrid seamless body style. The arm features no elbow joints covered in a silicone layer, while the various clothing features texture detailing. Enhanced articulation engineering is present throughout to go a step beyond normal S.H. Figuarts.
It comes with both regular and Super Saiyan hair, multiple hands (looks like the standard Goku hand styles from S.H.F.). Looks like there will be two heads, 2 facial expressions for each head. There will also be swappable eye expressions per head. The upper body clothing is using a softer material (not fabric) to allow bending while posing, so the gi is detached from the body sculpt. The legs feature a pop out knee to keep the silhouette. Wrists and ankles look to use a ball joint. There is paint detailing on hair and clothing to add depth.
Overall it looks sharp and is a new mixed media format. Not quite One:12, not quite S.H. Figuarts. Around NECA and McFarlane scale.
The figure is due out in October 2020 in Japan. Price is 11,000 yen ($101.00 USD). Stay tuned for more details and pre-orders. Read on to check the translated details and official pics. Thanks to RamenRider for the heads up!
