While there has been a huge amount of Dragon Ball figures released from companies like Banpresto or Bandai in exclusive series such as rise-figure Standard and Evolve, we would like to cut though the fat this time to introduce you to some of the most sought-after figures that have been released over the years!
In recent years, the soaring prices of Dragon Ball series figures have been gaining attention in the competitive world of the Japanese action figure market. The figures being introduced here are all normally very difficult to obtain for ordinary fans.
Dragon Ball Selection Figures
Figures from this series were originally only sold for 7,000 yen per unit, but their average asking price has soared due to their growing popularity overseas. It is now quite difficult to gather all seven figures in this set and complete the collection. Many people seem to be aiming to collect them all because everything in this series is considered to be made with a high degree of quality, down to the design of the box.
Super Festival Great Ape Figure
A rare piece of merch that was sold at an exhibition and sales event called ‘Super Festival’. It is a figure that you hardly see for sale because it is rarely put on the market. Even on Buyee it has been hard for people to get their hands on one of these figures whenever they show up!
SMSP Vegeta Two Dimensions Prize Model
A wonderfully unique model that dares to feature a two-dimensional bold coloring style to emphasize Vegeta’s modeling and visual flair in the way that he would appear on the pages of the original manga.
Desktop REAL McCOY Dragon Ball Series
This well-known illustration is brought into the third dimension with this ‘desktop series figure’. Reproduces even the finest details of creator Akira Toriyama’s original artwork, making you feel as if it has simply leaped off the pages of the Shonen Jump manga magazine! If you are a Dragon Ball fan, this is a figure series that you will want at least one of to decorate your home!
‘Zoukei’ Tenkaichi Budokai Series Figure Series
A figure series that every Dragon Ball fan is itching to get their hands on! You can feel the creator of these figures’ love for Dragon Ball just from looking at them. For the ‘Zoukei Tenkaichi Budokai’ series, six motivated masters of figure-making are brought together to create their own Dragon Ball figures and compete for ranking. Featured in this image is a figure of young Son Goku from the Zoukei Tenkaichi Budokai 2 Series. His youthful energy that exudes cuteness and cool can be felt from this high-quality model!
