Dragon Ball has a long history with Funko, and fans know their relationship will only grow as time goes on. The collectible brand has released dozens of Saiyan-centric figures to date, but it can always do with a few more. After all, Hot Topic just preview several of its upcoming exclusives, and it turns out the store will sell a special Super Saiyan Blue Goku vinyl before long.
Yesterday, fans got their first look at the surprise figure when Hot Topic held a live stream. It was there fans met Goku face to face, and the buzz around the new Funko is very real.
As you can see below, the figure is based off Dragon Ball Super: Broly. The film features Super Saiyan Blue Goku as the hero fights against Broly upon their first meeting. As the battle escalates, Goku finds his outfit falling apart, but he is still ready to square up.

With his orange top torn to shreds, Goku looks poised to fight as he crouches into stance. The rest of his Gi his intact from the waist down save for a few holes. Remarkably, Goku's boots are completely fine, and his head sculpt looks like the Goku figures which came before this one. The only difference is his bright blue hair, so fans can enjoy adding this color to all the ones they've collected so far.
At this point, there is no word on when this figure will go live. Hot Topic showed off the Goku vinyl along with several other exclusives including a Vegeta Pop. The former villain has gotten yet another figure, and Vegeta recreates the famous 'Over 9000' scene with his new collectible. Fans can look forward to getting these before long, so here's to hoping each collectible is out ahead of the encroaching holiday season.
