Official Images: S.H.Figuarts Super Saiyan God Goku

Last night, Premium Bandai updated its site with the listings for the May 19th pre-order items. Among the items listed is the previously teased S.H.Figuarts Super Saiyan God Goku! Fans best know this form of Super Saiyan for its debut in the 2013 Dragon Ball Z film, Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods. The form was achieved through a ridiculous process where Shenron was summoned, and a wish was made to inform the Z-Fighters of the necessary ritual to obtain the form. The ritual in question, required five Saiyans to merge their energy into one singular host, which was obviously Goku for his rematch with Beerus. The form reappears again, through the re-telling of the film in Dragon Ball Super, as well as become alternative form/ability for Goku in video games.  However, since its debut the form was replaced for Super Saiyan God Super Saiyan, otherwise known as Super Saiyan Blue.

Now, back to the figure at hand! S.H.Figuarts Super Saiyan God Goku is retool/remold of the basic Goku figures as of late. The figures paint apps are at best attempting to recreate the appearance from Battle of Gods. In addition, the figure itself will feature three optional facial expressions, and four pairs of alternative hands. Furthermore, the Tamashii Effect Energy Aura Yellow shown in the gallery is not included with this figure. One will have to purchase that Tamashii Effect separately, but not to worry it is basic retail product.

As stated before orders for S.H.Figuarts Super Saiyan Goku will open tomorrow, May 19 at 16:00 JST. Orders for the item will then ship this October. Premium Bandai is selling the item for 5616 yen, with international buyers needing to go through other providers. However, for North America they will most likely be able to purchase this item through Bluefin Tamashii.
