New Bandai Dragonball Z gashapons

saiyaman-gashapon.jpgBandai Asia has revealed some new Dragonball gashapons on their website. The new series, entitled “HG DRAGONBALL IMAGINATION FIGURE P-2”, is the second series of “Imagination Figures”, and should be available from importers later this month.

The series includes Goten on a dinosaur, SS3 Goku, SS Gotenks with Kamikaze Ghosts, Piccolo and young Gohan, and Great Saiyaman and Videl.

Each figure is approximately 3 inches tall, and has limited articulation if any. Each figure is 300 Yen, so the set of 5 should retail for around $30 in the US.

JAKKS DBGT SS4 Goku - images

JAKKS Pacific’s first round of Dragonball GT figures are finally arriving in stores, after being revealed at last year’s pre-toy fair show.

Super Saiyan 4 Goku is the most elaborate of the series, with 15 points of articulation (including his tail), heavily detailed, sculpted fur, and well-done paint washes which bring out said detail. It’s a bit bulkier than the old Bandai version, but so are all of JAKKS Dragonball figures.

There are 14 shots of this figure, including packaging, here. Enjoy.

Also, advertised on the back of the card is a new DBZ two-pack series, “Ultimate Struggles”, made up of some new molds, including SS2 Trunks and SS Vegeta, Cell Form 2 and Battle Damaged Piccolo, & Battle Damaged SS Goku and Battle Damaged Frieza.

JAKKS Dragonball GT figures are hitting stores!

Reports are coming in on our message boards of sightings of JAKKS Pacific’s new Dragonball GT figures in stores. Apparently, they were found at a Media Play store, which means that all stores in the Sam Goody chain (Suncoast, Musicland, etc.) should be getting them soon.

Remember, series 1 includes Goku, Pan, Trunks, General Rilldo, and SS4 Goku.

Got a comment? Check out the Dragonball GT figures thread on our message boards.

Server issues - bear with us

DBT had a catastrophic server failure yesterday. We’re working to restore all functionality, but as of right now, the message boards are down, and there are some other problems throughout the site. Bear with us as we try to find time on this holiday to fix the problems.

UPDATE - The issues with UBB are fixed, as far as I can tell. The message boards should be back to normal now.
