In the world of Funko Pops, Dragon Ball Z rules supreme as this anime franchise is one of the biggest sellers of the figurine line across the board and it is looking to add a brand new character to the roster with a "Chrome" version of the unorthodox villain of Majin Buu. Summoned by the pint sized sorcerer of Babidi, Buu arrived on the scene as a jovial, albeit still evil, creature that was looking to spread havoc across the world and turn innocent bystanders into candy for his enjoyment!
Majin Buu has played a big role throughout the recent sequel series of the anime franchise with Dragon Ball Super, first pitting his strength against the God of Destruction, paling around with Mr. Satan, and then helping Goku and the other Z Fighters in the preliminary fights of the Tournament of Power. In the manga, his role and background has been expanded upon as the ancient wizard Moro lays siege to the galaxy and a part of Buu himself is the key to learning more about this new franchise villain.
