Remove the hair fringe and swap the face.

Make way for muscular dude when badass Super Saiyan Broly MegaHouse stormed into the world  of Dragon Ball in 2015! I'm fond of this figure for its huge size and quality that MegaHouse delivers. It stands proudly at 25cm in fixed posed packed in a big box! The front cover of the box, secured by magnet, can be flipped open to see the figure inside. However, I feel that the box is kind of sized with too many empty pockets.

The figure has two faces to choose from either the cocky or a really pissed off looks. All it needs is to remove the hair fringe and swap the face. The only movable part would be the head which can be removed to put on Broly's necklace and reattached the head onto the ball joint. Made of hybrid materials having a PVC head, soft vinyl body and using real cloth for the greyish pants. 

Even the body is soft vinyl, it's fully painted in details to the extends of well defined bulging muscle tones. The figure is nicely sculpted and brings out the dominance of the character. The figure is able to hold up own its own. Nevertheless, it can be attached to a rounded lime green base stand with 3D wordings 'DOD'and 'Broly'. 

I have also bought the bootleg/knockoff version this figure for comparison. It cost less than 1/2 of the original and I'm actually quite impressed with the closenesses of the knockoff in comparison with the original. Some telltale signs of the knockoff would be it doesn't have the 'Toei' sticker on the box, the base colour appears paler with shallow 3D wordings. 

The knockoff figure seems to have greener hair and lesser shadings. Some mild paint areas slight out of alignment. The knockoff is able to achieve the muscle tone and weighs heavier than the original. However due to the poor weigh distribution, the knockoff is unable to stand on its own without the aids from the base stand.

I don’t know if I would find charm in Broly as character, HEHE... I’ve been hating him since his first appearance in a Dragon Ball movie, specially because of his arrogance, but also because Goku was no able to neutralize him by his own, neither the Z Fighters united could and the only way was when all the energy of the Z Fighters was channeled to Goku... It was kind of disappointing, since Broly was not actually defeated in a one to one combat (the simple and effective old school technique, LOL) =/... The statues on the other hand, are very appealing (at least for those who admire this character, like you pal =P), the sculpt and paint job are nice too, but I always thought that the body design for Broly was exaggerated, almost caricaturesque, as if he had ingested too many steroids in gym... =D

True that Broly is quite the detestable character in the anime however people tends to like the badass like gals falling for nasty boyz. Lolz.. The Goku's energy ball ending is such a typical in the movies and can been so predictable and perhaps boring. Maybe the majority just can't wait to see the iconic killer move over and over again all young children. Nostalgia lolz.. Broly is undoubtedly the most muscular dude in the entire DBZ roll out on Saiyan's steroid.

Still, the paint job on the original figure is better than the KO version.

In the Dragonball storyline, Broly was rather a weak developed character. If it is not Goku, it is like Broly would be a nice guy. That being said, many love Broly for the look as heavy and big size. I can see you are a hardcore fan of Broly that even knockoff version you also collect. LOL

Nothing beat the original still I must applaud the KO version

Very true bro! I would see Broly like an A Grade actor mainly a appearing in movies and hence the short duration could not tell a lot of the character. He's really badass and cool during the first appearance and should have come back in later story like resurrection...
