Bandai’s Vending Business Division has been selling the “Machibouke Dragon Ball” series in gashapon machines across Japan since the third week of January 2024. This series features popular “Dragon Ball” characters in a cute, deformed figure form, sitting in a waiting pose. Particularly notable are their melancholic expressions and the detailed representation of their battle-damaged outfits.

The figures include Goku, Vegeta, Krillin, and Yamcha, with each play costing 400 yen (tax included). They are available in gashapon Bandai official shops, toy stores, mass retailers, and electronics stores nationwide. These figures are surely a collectible item for “Dragon Ball” fans, signifying a special connection with their beloved characters for anime fans in Japan.

What are Gashapon Machines?

Bandai revolutionized the Japanese capsule toy market in 1977. While capsule toys were typically sold for 20 yen at the time, Bandai entered the market with an unprecedented 100 yen price point. Their unique system, named “GashaponR,” comes from the sound of turning the handle “Gasha” and the capsule popping out “Pon.”

The “Machibouke Dragon Ball” is a 3-4 cm (about 1.2-1.6 inches) sized “Dragon Ball” character figure collection. The series portrays popular characters like Goku and Vegeta in a post-battle, melancholic state. The Vegeta figure, in particular, replicates his battle-damaged outfit from the Frieza saga, where he was deliberately beaten to near-death by Krillin. The collection includes four types: Goku, Vegeta, Krillin, and Yamcha.
