Do you like high quality action figures? Do you also happen to love Dragon Ball’s Son Goku? If your answer to those questions is yes, then you better start saving up now that the holidays have come to a close. The folks over at PLEX have revealed their new Goku statue, and it’s one to wish for. You hear that Shenron?
PLEX’s Goku figure will be a new addition to the company’s Gigantic Series line-up of premium piece. The piece will cost a whopping $415 prior to shipping, but Goku is surely worth the price for many fans. The figure depicts Goku as he appeared in the movie Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’ as he is wearing his traditional orange-and-blue gear. However, fans will notice that his hair is a little less blonde and a lot more blue.
PLEX’s statue stands at 47 cm tall and it made from PVC. The figure remarkably details each of Goku’s rippling muscles, but collectors will have to wait a bit until the piece can sit upon their shelves. PLEX will not be shipping these premium figures until March 31, 2017 but they are already up for pre-order. Early sales will cut off January 10, so you better cash out for the limited piece before they sell out.
If you’re worried about the cash, then you can at least take comfort in the fact that free Dragon Ball fun is coming to the U.S. soon. Later this week, Dragon Ball Super will debut its English dub over on Toonami when the late-night program brings the action-packed anime to Western fans. In February, a brand-new story arc will kick off with the ‘Universal Survival’ saga. You can check out the brief synopsis for it below:
“At Goku’s request, the Omni-Kings’ “Tournament of Power” martial arts tournament between universes now begins! …But this also proves to be the beginning of universal destruction. What awaits the victors of this tournament, and the vanquished…?! How will these intense team battles between the elites of each universe turn out…?!”
Shortly after the new arc was announced, the anime's website shared a short message from producer Shunki Hashizume. “Dragon Ball Super enters its new chapter, the “Universe Survival Arc”. As you can see from the main visual, it’ll be a full-throttle story where Goku and the rest of the Universe 7 warriors form a team to take on a tournament between universes!” he wrote.
“Artificial Human No. 17 and Majin Boo are there too, so personally I can’t contain my excitement at the thought of what kind of fights we’ll see! Look forward to this new chapter that’ll be sure to feature super-intense battles with nonstop appearances by the elites of each universe!”
