Dragon Ball has all sorts of Funko figures under its belt, but what does yet another hurt? Not long ago, collectors learned the toy company is releasing a special pop figure all about Son Goku, and this one will get Namekian fans feeling hyped.
Who needs Shenron, huh? Why splurge for Earth’s wish-granting dragon when you can have Porunga instead.
Recently, Funko hit up Twitter to confirm its exclusive pop releases for Emerald City Comic Con. It was there the company unveiled its Porunga collectible to the world and even gave fans the chance to win one for themselves.
As you can see above, the pop is a massive one and shares a few similarities with Shenron’s enlarged figure. Porunga’s bulky form can be seen winding out from a set of Dragon Balls. Its serpentine body is painted a bright green, and it has bumps scattered along its skin. Porgunga is seen flexing his muscular arms as some black horns sprouts from its torso, and the rather intimidating look is made complete with glowing red eyes.
According to Funko, the pop figure will be super sized, so it stands at 6” tall.
For more casual fans, they may have some trouble recalling Porunga. The character debuted in Dragon Ball Z and has been seen in the title’s sequels. Porunga is the wish-granting dragon from Planet Namek and summoned using its own Dragon Balls. Its ripped appearance and good-hearted humor made Porunga a favorite with fans, so Dragon Ball Z die-hards will surely be clamoring to get this exclusive pop for their collections.
