TWK Reviews Episode 47: Getting Nostalgic with DBZ Budokai 2

Hello there Hero-Club, TDub here once again with another video game review. This time I am looking at a fighting game adaptation of the iconic Dragon Ball Z series known as Budokai 2. Now, for anyone uninitiated, Dragon Ball Z is the second part of Akira Toriyama’s Dragon Ball franchise.

Also this year, we see Space Talk attempt to make talking figures work in Star Trek as well as the 9 inch line expanding with more figures. Perhaps the most bizarre release this year is the Doctor Pulaski figure. At first glance she seems like a quick and dirty reuse, however,…
