Bandai and Banpresto have brought us some of the greatest Dragon Ball Z figures ever made over the course of the last few years with their SH Figuarts Dragon Ball Z and SCultures Dragonball Z figures. But do you ever feel like your DBZ figure collection is missing something? Like, say, a dragon?! Banpresto sure seems to think so, and that’s why they’ve produced one of the most-anticipated Dragon Ball Z WCF figures ever: the Dragonball Z WCF MEGA Shenron Dragon figure has now been released and is available for order!Continue Reading→
