Akira Toriyama Collectible Figurines - Dragon Ball Z & Dr. Slump

I've got a colleague of mine who really into anime, and sometimes, he even updates me on anime collectibles, which I may not have taken notice of, like this Dragon Ball Z Non Scale Pre-Painted Candy Toy Collection.

This official Dragon Ball Z Candy Toy Collection consists of 10 different characters and 1 secret character, each of them standing around 70mm in height. From the screenshot, there's Goku, Gohan, Vegeta, Majin Buu and a few others. This collection looks rather nice, and the main selling point is actually the price!

At USD 2.90 a pop, it's a cheap way to start collecting gashapon and anime based figurines. Interested? Click here for details.

Another Akira Toriyama creation that recently had its gashapon collection released would be Dr. Slump. Alongside Dragon Ball, Fist of the North Star and Rurouni Kenshin, Dr. Slump competed for part of my reading time when I was a kid.

The Dr. Slump Collection Pre-Painted PVC Mini Figure: Gacchan features, as you can already guess, Gacchan in various poses. This collection features 7 different figures and 1 secret (chase) figure.
