Bandai will capitalize on the popularity of the LEGO minifigure craze with its own line of block-based figures dubbed Figmes. The Japanese toymaker will launch the new line, this spring, with an introductory wave of Dragon Ball Z Figmes.
The Dragon Ball Z Figmes, scheduled for a March 2016 release, are comprised of eight characters including Son Goku, Super Saiyan Son Goku, Vegeta, Super Saiyan Vegeta, Piccolo, Krillin, Freeza, and Cell. The DBZ Figmes will come 10 to a box–meaning there will be two duplicates–and carry a suggested price of ¥500, which is about $4. Based on Bandai’s sales solicitation sheets, it appears that the Figmes are intended to be sold in blind boxes.
