Dragon Ball DBZ Burter Vinyl 12" Figure














This is not the official release which I have bought from Alipress but IMHO by far the best figure of Burter, the fastest member of the Ginyu Force, nicknamed the "Blue Hurricane" in the whole Dragon Ball DBZ universe (right up to Namek saga). Standing at 12" (27 cm), the height of the figure is truly a reflection the tallest member of the Ginyu Force. Even looking tall and mighty, the figure is rather light weight considering the vinyl material and hollowness within.

Quite nicely painted is the figure, looking at the blueish purple skin with shading, red iris pupil-less eyes, the battle suit of Freeza's army and the Ginyu Force logo located on the left side of his armour plates. There are also penal lines drawn on the figure. Detailed reptile like face sculpt of Burter's confidence and those small spots over his body. Unfortunately, the figure does not come with the green scouter. Figure is more like a statue as it is non posable without articulation.

As you commented in a recent publication, figures of the Ginyu Force are hard to come by and it looks like it has been precisely an opportunity for companies others than Bandai, to create renditions of characters that don’t represent the mainstream in the Dragon Ball Z franchise, yet, this Ginyu team managed to leave an imprint in many fans of the series !!!... I don’t know if it’s just me, but from certain angles, the head and especially the face of Burter looks kind of odd, compared with what I remember of the character design... HEHE... =D

I hope 🤞🏻 Banpresto can release some of these DBZ characters wearing battle suit in large scale like the Grandista such as the recent Bardock / Barduck. Still the third party or in this case unknown party release is hard to come by and provide an alternative. Probably a little odd but I still love it for the size and kudos that that company whoever’s you are bother to do something about it.

He appeared during the Freeza arc as member of Ginyu Force and was killed by Vegeta by knee to the neck. Brutal ...
