Figure Review: Sabo -Extra Battle- Figuarts ZERO – Hiken

Figure Review: Sabo -Extra Battle- Figuarts ZERO – Hiken

I know, another Sabo figure review. I wasn’t originally intending on even getting this figure, but I was surprised with it as a very early birthday present so I figured it wouldn’t hurt to write about it. ūüôā

This figure is from the Figuarts ZERO Extra Battle line. The Extra Battle line is as it sounds, a series of¬†One Piece¬†characters performing flashy battle moves. Technically, the line is called Chou Gekisen -Extra Battle-,’ but I’m calling it Extra Battle for simplicity’s sake.

The latest entry in the line (as of this writing) is Sabo using his Hiken, or Fire Fist, powers.

Confession: I didn’t like Dragonball Z¬†as a teenager. I gave it a few shots, since it aired before¬†Sailor Moon¬†on Toonami (I believe it did, anyway) but it never really grabbed me. Perhaps it was partly due to how I never watched the beginning, or even attempted to find and rent some of the early episodes from Blockbuster (RIP). Either way, I didn’t enjoy it and I kind of forgot about giving it an honest shot again until recently.

Dragonball Z Kai helped me get the original story of DBZ without the filler, and it made the overall experience much more enjoyable. Of course, since I love figures, I ended up poking around the internet to see what was available. To no surprise, the answer was a lot. 

As I had heard very nice things about most of the¬†SH Figuarts Dragonball line, I figured I’d pick one out and see what I think. I was torn between Piccolo and Trunks; Vegeta was actually my favorite character but he had a few more versions than the other two and I didn’t want to have to pick between them, haha.

I ended up going for Trunks since an auction was ending within 5 minutes of me finding it and I figured it was fate. Or something.

Sanji 20th Anniversary Figuarts ZERO Review

Hello! It sure has been a while, hasn’t it? Unfortunately, I wasn’t doing too well the past few months with stress and illness related stuff, so I passed on reviewing Skoshbox or writing about anything, really. I’m doing a bit better now, but the January 2018 Skoshbox has yet to arrive for me, so ….

Figure review time!
