WHAT IS IT?

THE WARRIORS

Meet the contestants stepping into the Arena for the very first “Dragon Ball” World Figure Colosseum: The World Sculpting Arts Tournament.

RULES OF THE BATTLE

Each contestant will select a figure from the following list of Dragon Ball lore.
Contestants are free to choose their own pose and costume from Dragon Ball.

  • THE COLLECTION
    If you think this Krillin figure looks like he jumped straight out of the manga, well, you'd be right! Sculptor Hiroshi Sagae fell in love with the drawing of Krillin this was based on and tried to recreate every last wrinkle of the outfit, and even the belt! It's this obsessive attention to detail that makes this clean-looking figure a Figure Colosseum 2 finalist.
  • THE COLLECTION
    The fearsome Namekian Dragon Porunga has something of a signature pose to him, so sculptor CCP decided not to rock the boat with his Figure Colosseum 4 entry. What CCP did instead was create a figure with details and a color palette that match the anime to a T. Look closely and you can see where Porunga's skin wrinkles around his neck and muscles, the bumps of his scales, and even the texture of his horns! This is the kind of figure that encourages you to take in all of the carefully-crafted details.
  • THE COLLECTION
    As a big fan of Akira Toriyama's casual takes on his characters, sculptor Hiroyuki Nakazawa wanted to revisit the idea of Goku in a Hawaiian shirt. It looks like Goku has taken a page out of Master Roshi's catalog! There aren't many large figures that feature Dragon Ball characters in casual wear so this Figure Colosseum 1 finalist really stands out. The icing on the cake is the logo-branded base, which gives the figure more of an American Pop feel.
  • THE COLLECTION
    Although Nappa tends to be overshadowed by his fellow Saiyans, he's one big guy, and this Figure Colosseum 5 finalist makes him look HUGE. Sculptor Takamatsu took a few liberties with Akira Toriyama's original design to make Nappa look this imposing, though. For one thing, he accentuated the armor, giving it more physicality and exposing more muscle. To avoid making Nappa's muscles look too flat, Takamatsu took influence from later large DBZ characters like Spopovich who have bigger, more detailed muscles. By keeping Nappa's silhouette the same, he managed to create a version of Nappa that looks like it could shove the original Nappa into a locker.
  • THE COLLECTION
    Android 16 is a gentle giant, but this massive figure doesn't look friendly! This, of course, was by design. Sculptor Yohei Suzuki's approach for his Figure Colosseum 1 finalist was to utilize the size of the character to "make him intimidating to the audience." He certainly succeeded! The texture work on this figure really makes him come alive.
