Figure on customised acrylic stand
Yamcha ヤムチャ has always been one of my favourite and has a special place in my heart even as a supporting character in the Dragon Ball manga, and in the anime Dragon Ball and Dragon Ball Z, also making a few appearances in Dragon Ball GT. He is a former boyfriend of Bulma and the lifelong best friend of Puar. A former desert bandit, Yamcha was once an enemy of Goku, but quickly reformed and became a lifelong friend and ally. Brave, boastful and dependable, Yamcha is a very talented martial artist and one of the most gifted Humans on Earth, possessing skills and traits that allow him to fight alongside his fellow Z Fighters when major threats loom. However, by the latter half of Dragon Ball Z, he is largely outclassed by both his allies and their enemies, and thus retires from fighting.
A tribute of Yamcha through Zoukei Tenkaichi Budokai Colosseum 4 Vol. 3, in considerably awesome size of 5.5"(12cm) PVC figure, in his youth (a beautiful representation of Yamcha in his prime). It looks great and for an extremely reasonable price especially by Banpresto with simple assembling of 3 parts (excluding the base) mainly the top, bottom and sword. Excellent sculpt of Yamcha's facial expression charging using his iconic move Wolf Fang Fist Attack 狼牙風風拳!!!, packed with motion and energy that it just leaps off, in his desert bandit attire the first Dragon Ball TV series bearing his symbol on the front body.
Amazing Yamcha's long hair flowing, the wiggles on his clothing and muscular arms. The figure needs a stand base for its dynamic pose and for a more manga looking display, I bought a third party customised acrylic stand with his name engraved, also the add-on of wolves and his lifelong best friend of Puar on the background.
