Despite being both a well-known series, Dragonball Kai hasn’t had a great outing in terms of toys recently. Back then, Dragonball toys seemed to be all the rage, but now in an otakusphere where girly, fabulous men rule, these musclebound freakazoids have been left collecting dust in toy shelves. Such has been the case for the S.H.FiguArts Dragonball lineup as recent additions have been relegated to Tamashii Web exclusive status to prevent overproduction and costs for that good ol’ farmer, Bandai, which is a sad thing as their latest release, the Super Saiyan 3 form of Son Goku actually makes me kinda’ drool.
The Super Saiyan 3 Son Goku is my absolute favorite incarnation of Goku for the cool long hairstyle and the browless eyes giving him an impression of absolute power. The FiguArts version perfectly captures this while retaining the unparalleled poseability the product line is known for. Bandai doesn’t skimp out on this one either as he’ll be coming with the following accessories:
- 3 replacement wrists for the right hand
- 2 replacement wrists for the left hand
- replacement face parts
- effect parts
- Tamashii stand
As mentioned earlier, this one will be a Tamashii Web exclusive figure (bummer) and will retail for 4725 yen. S.H.FiguArts Super Saiyan 3 Son Goku will be released in March next year.
