The 2022 Comic-Con International (a.k.a. the San Diego Comic Con) is coming. And with it, is a wave of exclusive merchandise for attendees. Bandai Namco Collectibles is bringing four Dragon Ball Z SDCC exclusive S.H. Figuarts figures to the event. SDCC exclusive items are usually sold only to Comic-Con attendees at the various exhibitor booths on the show floor. In some cases just the chance to purchase these items is subject to lottery-style distribution among certain groups of attendees. For its part, Bandai’s exclusives – including the Dragon Ball Z SDCC figures – will be available at its booth.
The Dragon Ball Z SDCC exclusives for 2022 are based on Goku, Majin Buu, Shenron, and Android 16.
The Son Goku S.H. Figuarts figure is based on his Super Saiyan 2 power mode. A straight upgrade of the Super Saiyan transformation, Super Saiyan 2 is even more powerful. Its wielders have even spiker hair, a more dramatic aura, and occasionally flash with lightning. Goku has three pairs of hands, three faces, a halo, and a special set of visual effect parts.
The Majin Buu S.H. Figuarts figure is based on Majin Buu’s Good form. In good form, the fearsome fighter is a portly paragon. He comes with two pairs of hands, three faces, an Angel Halo, and a handy chocolate bar.
Android representation comes to the Dragon Ball Z SDCC exclusive line through Android 16. This version has an improved paint job that sticks more closely to his look in the anime. He has interchangeable hands, two faces, and an exchangeable head.
Finally, the divine dragon Shenron rounds out the offering. The figure is over 11 inches long, and comes with a custom pedestal to prop him up. The base also shows an arrangement of all seven Dragon Balls, making him ready to grant a wish.
The Dragon Ball Z SDCC exclusive figures will be available at the San Diego Comic-Con 2022. The convention takes place on July 21 to 24, 2022. Various Dragon Ball anime series are available to watch on Crunchyroll in North America.
