Tamashii Nations revealed a new Dragon Ball Z SH Figuarts figure based on Goku in his Legendary Super Saiyan form. It will have his looks from the end of the Frieza arc. It will also feature a new joint structure Bandai Namco will use for the brand’s figures. Pre-orders will open worldwide on June 1, 2023, and it will cost ¥ 7,150 / $50.99 (tax included).
Here is the official announcement for the SH Figuarts Super Saiyan Goku from the Tamashii Nations Twitter account.

This Goku will come with 3 different faces with screaming, clenching, and grinning expressions, along with 5 pairs of hands, interchangeable hair and head parts, and effect parts for the Kamehameha wave. Most notably, this will be the first figure to use a new articulation technology for more accurate and smooth poses. You can check out a 3D model visor of the figure on the Tamashii website.
It is no surprise we see more Dragon Ball figures being released, as a recent report confirmed it to be one of the most lucrative IPs for Bandai Namco in the last financial year, along with Gundam. Another example of this is the 10 million sales milestone reached by the Dragon Ball FighterZ and Dragon Ball Xenoverse 2 games.
The Dragon Ball Z SH Figuarts Super Saiyan Goku Figure is planned for a November 2023 release, and pre-orders will start on June 1, 2023. You can watch several of the Dragon Ball series on Crunchyroll right now.
