The back of the box displays some of the other figures, usually the 6 from the same series or the one directly before / after.

The branding is underneath the character’s feet.

It reads in raised font on the right foot: ©B.S./S.,/T.A. #35855 B.19 CHINA and the CE logo is on the other foot. This is specifically for Series 15 SSJ Vegeta, so the numbers may be slightly different.

I’m only listing the main series here, as there are some exclusive variants that were only available at certain shops / times. There’s also a new line of Dragon Stars Nano which are also not listed here (little Chibi figures instead of articulated Action Figures).

I got 1/3; Super Saiyan Vegeta.

Super Saiyan Vegeta

The figure has a “New Version” sticker on the box, probably to differentiate it from Series 2 Super Saiyan Vegeta. It does appear to be a new sculpt with better articulation than his older version from 3 years ago.

The figure is quite nice looking. The head especially looks spot on, and even has a little angry vein popping on his forehead. His hair has a slight shimmer to it.

He comes with an extra pair or interchangeable hands, so you can swap them for open hands and fists or a combination of.

The figure has 14 different points of articulation; in the neck, shoulders, elbows, wrist, waist, hips, knees and ankles.

Vegeta is wearing his trademark battle armour from the Android Saga to Cell Games Saga.

Despite all the articulation I still had some trouble posing him exactly how I’d like, finding most limitation on the shoulders and hips.

The joints also remain very visible.

It also would have been nice if there were heads which were interchangeable like the hands, so you have different expressions and or forms.

However, I had a lot of fun posing him as is and they are a cheap alternative for the SH Figuarts figures. More parts would make them more expensive, and you’ll have more parts on the sides as left over.

Series 16

Release: 2020

Dragonball Super Dragon Stars Series Action Figures by Bandai Series 16

Series 16 exist out of 3 figures; Cooler Final Form, Bardock and Super Saiyan Blue Vegeta.

I got 0/3.


When I first saw these figures back in 2017, I wasn’t that fussed. I’m not a huge fan of Dragonball Super, and the figures looked a bit off to me, with joints very visable.

But when I saw Series 15 Super Saiyan Vegeta for sale in Smyths in the UK in 2020, I decided to treat myself. He looked much better from what I remembered them looking like in 2017, and it was so long since I had bought a new Vegeta Action Figure. It kinda felt nostalgic. I also love the box packaging, as I don’t have to ruin / break the entire thing to get the figure. And I figured I should have at least one of this series.

I was actually pleasantly surprised with this figure. Yes the joints are very visible, and his gaping hips especially I’m disliking, but I still had a lot of fun with him. I love my old Irwin Action Figures, but this one had a lot more articulation which made for some fun photo’s.

Although they feel a bit cheap and plastic, and obviously can’t compare to the SH Figuarts in terms of options and articulation, these are a great cheaper alternative for them. I may buy a couple more of my favourite characters if I see them on sale.

I have no interest in buying them all. But Series 11 and 14 Gohans look quite cool. I always liked Bardock as well, but Series 16’s look like he’s slightly off but I can’t put my finger on it. Too long legs? Series 9 Frieza, Series 11 Kid Buu and Series 16 Cooler make for some cool baddies which I’m lacking as well. Who knows.

If you like poseable action figures but can’t afford the SH Figuarts or vintage prices, these are quite good. Especially the later series I think.
If you prefer more precision or higher quality, you may want to opt for the SH Figuarts instead.


Got any more details / information you think I should add? Or did I get something wrong? Do you own any of these figures? Which one is your fav? Do you agree or disagree with my findings? Let me know in the comments below!
