Bandai Collectibles continues their S.H. Figuarts Dragon Ball GT offerings with their newly released Super Saiyan 4 Vegeta, which is the perfect companion to last years Goku figure. Vegeta is the second offering from the GT series, but it’s also possible we’ll see additional releases such as Baby, and Super 17, but one can only assume these characters are coming should there be enough demand. Vegeta comes with three extra face plates, interchangeable hands, and an energy blast effect.
Thank you to Bandai Collectibles for sending along their S.H. Figuarts Dragon Ball GT Super Saiyan 4 Vegeta figure for review.
Availability: January 2023
Vegeta is packaged in the standard S.H. Figuarts window box, with artwork and images of the figure on the front, sides and back. The interior side flaps have the instructions and a part breakdown of the hands and interchangeable face plates, as this replaces that sheet of instructions that used to come with these. Vegeta is packaged in a plastic tray along with his accessories for sale keeping.
Vegeta comes in his Super Saiyan 4 form as seen in the Dragon Ball GT series, which is notable for the black long hair, crimson tank top and tail with sculpted texture. This is also one of two Super Saiyan forms we’ve seen that does not have the yellow/gold hair, as Super Saiyan Blue would be the other form shown in Dragon Ball Super. In this form, he also comes with violet gloves and boots, dark blue jeans and a violet belt with a tan belt buckle.
The interchangeable face plates have unique facial expressions, including normal, grinning, smirk and yelling/screaming. The heads are easy to pop off and there is no hair piece to remove first, as seen on SS4 Goku and other figures. The hair is also chopped, with the back featuring two parts that are articulated, and hangs in the front that are also articulated.
Vegeta also includes 6 sets of interchangeable hands (12 total), including closed fisted, a pair to attach the energy black effect, and various hand/finger poses as seen in the series. The tail, just like Goku’s has to be placed on as it comes separately in the package. The energy ball is blue, and there is hole on the back of it where the hands with the peg sticking out fits inside.
The various hands make up a lot of great poses for him, and with the face plates the possibilities to display him seem endless, especially next to Super Saiyan 4 Goku.
He is also fully articulated, including articulated hair (two parts in the bank and both bangs), ball jointed head, swivel-hinged and butterfly shoulders, swivel biceps, double-hinged elbows, swivel-hinged wrists, ball jointed torso, swivel waist, swivel-hinged hips, swivel thighs, double-hinged knees, hinged and rocker ankles, and hinged toes.
Overall, there’s a lot to love when it comes to the Super Saiyan 4 offerings in this line, and both Goku and Vegeta are great ways to start things off with it. The designs are remarkably accurate to their on-screen appearance, and brought into the S.H. Figuarts style. This is an essential piece to any Dragon Ball collection, so make sure you grab him while you can.
