Look to the Future! The S.H.Figuarts DRAGON BALL legacy continues with the beautiful, but deadly Android 18. This special release marks the first female DRAGON BALL character to join the ranks of the S.H.Figuarts line.
Two new option parts are featured for the previously released Figuarts Krillin, including an all new head for enacting the famous scene when 18 planted a kiss on the cheek of the terrified hero, and a brand new hand to hold the included Android destruction switch created by Bulma.
Also features a full array of accessories for Android 18 herself, including a pair of folded arms, swappable hair pieces, 4 interchangeable faces, as we as 3 different sets of hands to enact various poses. Fearsome on her own, she is twice as dangerous with her twin brother, 17. Will your S.H.Figuarts DRAGON BALL heroes be able to stop her? The answer lies with you.

Bluefin was founded with one goal in mind: bring the best of the hobby industry from the Japanese market to the US, at the most competitive prices. They do so by scouting out the latest trends in Japan and working with Japanese manufacturers to reflect demand in the American market. This combination of leading edge, two-way information flow allows Bluefin to best meet today’s market demand for classic models and new releases. Their attention to clients’ needs and manufacturers’ products has yielded several exclusive dealership arrangements.
Bluefin has the distinct advantage of being the only distributor within its industry to have a direct presence in Japan. They find this to be a key advantage in discovering new products and trends. Their dealers have come to rely on Bluefin for latest releases, news and events from Japan.
They currently are official distributors for Bandai Hobby, Bandai Candy Toy, GSI Creos, Square-Enix, Kotobukia, 3A Toys in the U.S. and the exclusive official distributor for Bandai Collectors aka Tamashii Nations for North America.
