If you have been keeping up with Dragon Ball Super’s ongoing arc, then you know a slew of new character have debuted as of late. The ‘Universal Survival’ storyline began back in February as Goku petitioned the Omni-King to set up a multiverse martial arts event. The Tournament of Power is slated to begin after a lengthy lead in, and fans are excited to see some of the anime’s newcomers let loose on the battlefield. And, now, diehard collectors will soon be able to bring those fresh faces home.
Over on Reddit, a image of several new Dragon Ball Super figures have been making its way around fans. The picture shows miniature Dragon Ball figures with tiny heads and even smaller bodies. Looking at the line-up, fans can see familiar characters like Goku, Gohan, and Vegeta - but it is the addition of two other fighters that has fans buzzing.
The new collectable line seems to include figures of Jiren and Kale. Dragon Ball Super recently introduced these two fighters as they will be contestants in the Tournament of Power. Jiren hails from Universe 11 and stands as that dimension’s most powerful fighter. Not even Toppo can overcome Jiren’s strength, and Goku found himself struggling against Toppo during their exhibition match.
As for Kale, the female Super Saiyan is a newcomer who fans may know under a different name. Before the Universe 6 fighter was properly introduced, fans knew the girl as Female Broly due to her Super Saiyan transformation. When Kale powers up into the state, the girl takes on a hulking appearance which closely mirrors Broly when he goes Legendary Super Saiyan. For now, it is assumed Kale is the Universe 6 mirror of Broly, but there is no word yet on whether her addition will make Broly canon or not.
There is no word on when these figures will be released or under what line. As more information becomes available, ComicBook will be here to share the news. Oh, and the collectables’ prince point; That’s important too!
