Bandai: S.H. Figuarts Dragon Ball Super Beerus

BEEERUUUS SAMA!! Dragon Ball Super’s God of Destruction. If you haven’t been following my latest toy infatuation then, I’m sorry. Not only are Bandai’s S.H. Figuarts amazing, but the anime that the figures are based on, Dragon Ball Super, is brilliant.

Beerus is Universe 7’s God of Destruction. At the beginning of Dragon Ball Super, he comes to Earth to destroy, is met by Goku, and they get into some serious fighting. Realizing that Goku had not achieved his full potential and learning that Earth has an unending source of good food, Beerus spares Earth — for the time being. Throughout the series he takes on a “Master Roshi” role for Goku and Vegeta, teaching them to be more powerful. He’s a scary character at times, but he’s also great comic relief.

Bandai hit the figure out the ballpark with Beerus. He has an amazing sculpt and looks like he leaped directly from the TV to your hands.

The main feature of the figure is the articulation, he’s a mix of what we can call the “classic SHF Dragon Ball engineering” and the newer style that’s seen some releases. The hips are the old hinged and ball hips, and the knees aren’t cut like the newer Goku. But he does have the ab-joint in addition to the waist joint. All the joints are tight and allow for a maximum amount of posing.

Beerus comes with three heads and two (plus 0ne) extra set of hands. The best part of the figure is the heads: they capture his expressions from the anime perfectly. The hands, specially when combined with the right head combination, allow you to express different emotions.

You gotta get Beerus. He’s a great character and a perfectly designed action figure. If you are following along with the anime Dragon Ball Super, then you know he’s a critical character. You can pick him up today here:

  1. Beerus came out in Battle of God’s first. -_- Super just adapted the movie into a long drawn out briefest.

  2. Nice. This is one of my Top 10 figures of 2016. I know its knees are klunky and inelegant, yet despite this flaw that keeps it from being perfect, it’s one of the best figures I own. Posability and expressiveness are off the charts, and I think that clever way they handle the shoulderpads is great.
