‘Dragon Ball Z’ Android 17 Joins His Sister In The S.H. Figuarts Line
Ever since Bandai’s S.H. Figuarts version of Android 18 from Dragon Ball Z went on preorder, fans knew it was only a matter of time before her brother Android 17 joined the plastic party. Well, the time has come. Starting today fans can preorder the web-exclusive S.H. Figuarts Android 17 for ¥4104 (about $40.14 USD), and expect to get it by September. Bluefin Tamashii Nations has announced that it’ll be bringing the figure to the US in October for $39.99, though, so fans don’t have to sweat international shipping unless they’re just itching to get it a few weeks before anyone else.
Like Android 18, Piccolo and other DBZ S.H. Figuarts, Android 17 is the spitting image of his Akira Toriyama design will come with a “folded arms” piece, plus six right hands and five left hands. The figure’s hair and face plates can also be swapped out for alternate pieces accomplishing different expressions and windswept ‘dos. To top things off, Android 17’s bandana and belt/holster/gun are all removable, just like Playmates’ Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles oldschool figures.
