S.H. Figuarts Broly Full Power
Broly is reintroduced into the Dragon Ball saga, with the events now set in the TV series universe (the TV and movie universes are separate entities supposedly). This time around, Broly is written as a tragic figure who grew up never experiencing love, and winds up getting happy ending at the end of the movie/ story arc, which is a far departure from the original “psychotic world-destroying” character we know and love from the older movie sagas.
Even without training, Broly gains incredible power whenever he loses control of his emotions, matching even the power Super Saiyan God Super Saiyans
Standing at almost 9 inches tall, Broly is very tall.
Heh, the Prince of Saiyans is only up to his waist.
Unfortunately, he doesn’t come with much, only spare hands and two extra facial expressions. Bandai didn’t include any energy effects this time around.
Broly easily beats up Goku and Vegeta in the new movie, even when they’re in Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan modes.
The figure can’t really grab a hold on Goku. You can’t see it in the pic, but I’m actually using tape on Goku chest and Broly’s hand to get this shot done.
Comparison with older SHF Broly.
Overall, still pretty good. At least this figure wasn’t a Tamashii Web Exclusive like the previous version. The sculpt and finish are also way nicer here. I do wish they included the energy effects for him. On a personal note with regards to Broly as a character, I still prefer the older character design for Broly, not to mention the “psychotic killing machine” attitude of the former version. The new Broly is more of a misunderstood unfortunate soul.
