Dropping a gallery today for some recent S.H. Figuarts Dragonball figures! Starting this year, the line has split between Premium Bandai and mass retail releases. There really has only been three regular retail drops so far – Piccolo Version 2, Bardock, and First Form Frieza with his Pod. These are what we are looking at today. All 3 are welcome additions and well done. Piccolo was the first SHF DBZ figure released way back in late 2009, so he was due for an update with new technology. Bardock has been requested for almost as long by fans of the series and line. First Form Frieza is a fantastic add with his Pod, done well in other sub-lines and now finally in S.H. Figuarts form.
We’ve run all three for over 125 HD shots. Read on to check them out, courtesy of The Toy Source! If you are looking to catch up on S.H. Figuarts retail releases – they have stock on most of the recent offerings, along with some copies of the sold out Premium Bandai versions.
We also have the Premium Bandai releases of Kid Gohan, Jeice, Recoome and Raditz here and shot, we’ll be sharing those out soon, stay tuned!
Bardock – Does the job. I am not as hyped on him as others have been, but I’m glad he’s in the rotation now. Especially after the Broly movie made him legit. Figure is sharp sculpt wise, paint is crisp. Just a well executed figure.
Piccolo V2 – Needed. Much better stance. Training gear mode is especially sharp on shelf. Only gripe is the lips, looks like he’s wearing lipstick the way it’s executed.
First Form Frieza – Awesome. Full figure is great, nice they kept him small. Way he works with the pod is also great, no stuffing the legs in all weird. Paint is good all around, pod has a matte black and metallic gold which play off each other well. Facial expressions are fantastic for both heads. Definitely a worthy pick up.
I’ll let the pics speak the rest. Check some key shots here, all 125+ after that!
