Maybe it wasn’t a thousand years, but at last the Legendary Super Saiyan Broly is being brought to life by S.H.Figuarts via overwhelming U.S. fan demand!
Introduced in the 1993 movie DRAGON BALL Z 8: THE BURNING BATTLES (ドラゴンボールZ 燃えつきろ!!熱戦・烈戦・超激戦, Doragon Booru Zetto Moetsukiro!! Nessen Ressen Choo-Gekisen) — released in the U.S. as DRAGON BALL Z: BROLY — THE LEGENDARY SUPER SAIYAN — Broly would return to challenge Goku and his friends in multiple films.
The S.H.Figuarts Broly comes in at approximately 7.5 inches high, appropriately taller than other S.H.Figuarts DRAGON BALL characters. His overwhelming power and muscular build are captured with meticulous sculpting detail. Recreate some of Broly’s more infamous scenes with the additional facial expression parts including one maniacal smirking face and the other being a berserk-like scream. Additional parts include three unique energy-sphere effect parts and interchangeable hand pieces.
This Tamashii Web Exclusive item will be available through U.S. affiliated Bluefin retailers.

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.
