Bandai America – Dragon Ball Super Future Trunks vs. Fusion Zamasu, Roshi Figures Review

 

Bandai America continues their Dragon Ball Stars line with some new offerings this year inspired from Dragon Ball Super, the latest series in the franchise. Featured in this review is the Future Trunks vs. Fusion Zamasu battle pack, and Master Roshi that appeared in the series, but as you may be aware Roshi did not play a part in the future timeline where Trunks, Goku and Vegeta fought Zamasu earlier on in the season. Roshi played a role in the Tournament of Power storyline, where 10 fighters from each universe fought for survival and the winner won’t have their universe destroyed. This storyline introduced new universes and a ton of new characters to the franchise, including Jiren, Kale, Hit, and Kefla (the fusion form of Kale and Caulifla), all of which we’ve seen in the Dragon Ball Stars line.

Thank you to Bandai America for providing their Dragon Ball Super Dragon Stars Future Trunks vs. Fusion Zamasu, Roshi Figures for review. 

Availability: 2021

Both offerings are packaged in a window box, with artwork of the characters on the front, sides, and back. Maten Roshi has a look at Goku and Broly that are also offered in his wave.

Future Trunks and Fusion Zamasu are given the same sculpts and deco as offered back in 2018, and each given a new head sculpt with a different facial expression, and Trunks has a different shade of yellow Super Saiyan hair. The sculpts continue to feature great likenesses to how they appeared in the series, all with the standard articulation and attention to detail that we’ve seen in this line. Fusion Zamasu was originally the build-a-figure, and this is the first-time the figure comes fully assembled.

 

Aside from the new head sculpts, Trunks also comes with two new accessories, the sword effect piece, and the acrylic piece for his foot to help him stand while the effect piece is connected to the broken sword, and helps him stand. The effect piece gives his arm some weight, and Trunks cannot stand properly without it. Trunks also includes three sets of interchangeable hands, a sword, a broken half sword, the sheath and handle that goes on his back, and the acrylic piece for his foot to help him stand.

 

Fusion Zamasu is the same as previously offered, with the new head sculpt, and comes with an interchangeable left hand. Even if you have the first release, the new head sculpt warrants a new purchase as it looks even better this time around.

Roshi is also based on his appearance in DragonBall Super, where he fought valiantly in the Tournament of Power, impressing Lord Beerus and other gods given his age. The figure features a bulky build as he used this form against opponents, and comes in a white vest, tan pants, lime green flip flops, with black and green shades over his eyes, and a brown karate belt. His head sculpt looks great and includes the long white beard and mustache. Included is a purple walking stick, which he doesn’t actually need to walk with on the show, but still a fun accessory. He also includes three sets of interchangeable hand sculpts.

His articulation includes a ball jointed head, ball jointed shoulders, swivel biceps, double hinged elbows, ball jointed wrists, waist rotation, ball jointed hips, double-hinged knees, and ball jointed ankles.

Overall, Bandai America continues to roll out some fun releases for this line and getting Roshi, which is also a repaint from the SDCC version is a nice touch. The new 2-pack of Trunks vs. Fusion Zamasu is another great release given the new head sculpts and parts. These are definitely worth picking up before the end of the year, and you can buy them at the stores listed below:
