Piccolo might not be able to become a Super Saiyan, but Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero is set to give him a transformation that might put the Namekian within striking distance of his fellow Z-Fighters such as Goku, Gohan, and Vegeta. With the latest Shonen film set to explore new sides of the former Demon King, San Diego Comic-Con gave fans a treat in recreating Piccolo's house which is introduced in the movie as the warriors that were created by Akira Toriyama fight against a new set of androids.
Throughout most of Dragon Ball Z and Dragon Ball Super, Piccolo has had a tough time keeping up with the Saiyans that he fights alongside, with new Super Saiyan levels, Ultra Instinct, and Ultra Ego putting them on different levels when it comes to their overall power. This is looking to change with the next film in the Shonen franchise as PIccolo will be getting at least one major power-up that fans have seen in promotional material. With the movie already releasing in Japanese theaters, spoilers are flying as fast as the Namekian's Special Beam Cannon though there are still plenty of secrets that the movie has kept close to its chest.
A number of Twitter Outlets were able to capture pictures of the real-life build of Piccolo's house that was erected at this year's San Diego Comic-Con, prepping Shonen fans in North America for the arrival of Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero into theaters on August 19th:
The television series for Dragon Ball Super has yet to reveal when, or if, it will be making a comeback though the manga series continues to march forward. Recently bringing the battle against Gas to a close in the Granolah The Survivor Arc, we would fully expect the events of Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero to eventually come into play on the printed page, especially considering Akira Toriyama's involvement along with the many changes for the Z-Fighters that were presented throughout the movie's runtime.
What do you think of Piccolo's humble abode? Do you think that the Namekian's new transformation might make him stronger than Goku and Vegeta for the first time since the Cell Saga?
