Bandai Tamashii Nations launched a new line last year called Imagination Works. This is a premium level line in 1/9th scale that will feature characters from multiple brands. It’s first offering was Goku from Dragonball Z in his most recognizable form – an orange gi with base and Super Saiyan hair. It’s parts, accessories and articulation are similar to S.H. Figuarts with slight upgrades, so like a Super Saiyan S.H. Figuarts :). I’ve really enjoyed SHF Dragonball over the last 10 years, so I wanted to give it a look. We’ve run the figure through the motions after the break, read on to check it out along with some additional thoughts. He’s in stock now and shipping from TheToySource!

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!
