Android 17 And 18 ‘Dragon Ball Z’ S.H. Figuarts Displayed [SDCC 2013]
S.H. Figuarts figures of Dragon Ball Z‘s most lethal siblings have been caught chillin’ among a crowd of Super Saiyan warriors at the Bluefin Distribution booth. Android 18 is apparently being planned for an unspecified future release, with her less empathetic brother Android 17 currently “for display only.”
Bluefin set up Android 18 behind her future main squeeze Krillin and posed her with a pair of the line’s signature crossed arms pieces. As with the rest of the DBZ Figuarts, these two look like they were pulled straight off the pages of Akira Toriyama’s manga.
Interestingly, the booth also had a huge Shenron on display among some Figuarts Zero characters, with articulation not unlike Dragreder’s from the S.H. Figuarts Masked Rider Ryuki set. Unlike Android 17, however, it doesn’t seem quite as likely that this prototype will make it to production. Maybe if fans
assemble 7 enchanted balls and wish hard enough, it could come true?
