A new line of highly detailed Dragon Ball figures highlight iconic moments and characters from the franchise’s many films.
A new line of Dragon ball Ichiban Kuji’s numbers have been revealed, which focus on key characters and moments from the series’ many animated films.
The new line of numbers was revealed on the official website Dragon ball website. The collection is featured by a new figure of Broly in his Super Saiyan Full Power form, who was seen in the 20th film in the franchise, Dragon Ball Super the movie: Broly. Two other versions of Broly are also present in the collection. In addition to the Saiyan murderer, new figures of Frieza, now depicted in his transformation to gold with a sufficiently brilliant paint job, and his brother Cooler have been revealed. As always, it wouldn’t be a Dragon ball collection of figurines without new Goku and Vegeta to collect, the line is therefore completed by a new figurine of the merged transformation of Gogeta and Vegeta into Super Saiyan God with pink hair.
The Ichiban Kuji line of figurines are meant to be discounted in stores and at promotional events in Japan, but they can often be purchased directly from hobbyist retailers. Figures in the range tend to cost more than mass-produced and less detailed “price figures”, but they are generally still much more affordable than collectible “scale figures”, which can cost up to 200 USD.
As these new numbers look to the past Dragon ball movies, the future of the franchise was revealed this summer in a brief teaser for the upcoming film in the series, titled Dragon Ball Super: Super Heroes. No details of the central plot of the film have been revealed, it has been shown that the new film will take place several years after the events of Dragon Ball Super the movie: Broly, and showcase new designs for Krillin and Goku’s granddaughter, Pan, who is now old enough to enroll in school. The film will feature a new style of animation that tries to recreate the look of hand drawn art with CG animation.
Dragon ball was created by Akira Toriyama and started serialization in Weekly Shonen Jump in 1984. Toriyama’s Martial Arts Epic is now the third best-selling manga series of all time, behind that of Eiichiro Oda. A play and the oldest manga in history, that of Tatsuo Saito Golgo 13. The popular series continued with the current Dragon ball super manga, which is supervised by Toriyama and features the art of self-taught illustrator Toyotarou. The series takes place during the ten-year ellipse seen at the end of the original Dragon ball manga.
