Dragon Ball DBZ Raditz Resin Statue

Raditz shares a similar persona like Vegeta in his villainess days. Better known as Goku's elder biological brother, Raditz wears the Saiyan armour looking even more badass. He was one of the four known remaining Saiyans left alive after his home world was destroyed. He seeks out Goku in order to recruit him to conquer more planets. 

Introducing another DBZ statue from third party "Djfungshing" which doesn't necessarily meant low budget. In fact this resin statue cost me a fortunate. I was struggling a long time before making a decision to get this due to the high cost and good thing I managed to get the last pic from the seller. The statue didn't come complete, missing the scouter and an alternate hand grabbing young Gohan. I'm not hard up for Gohan and I managed to customized the scouter anyway. This is at this point of time, the biggest scaled Raditz standing at 9". It comes with a base diorama which is possible to combine with Vegeta and Nappa. 

A part from the great size, the heavy weight of the resin statue gives a satisfying feel. Believe it, the weight probably is contributed by those very long hair. I guess Goku's Super Saiyan 3 extended hair length is inspired by Raditz ^_^ This statue diorama is a portrayal of the scene where Raditz abducts Gohan from Goku and his friends and threatens them. Raditz remains ever confident in his stance with a mean streak enshrouding his construct. He is portrayed in a kneeling position with both hands gripped as he maintains a ready-to-fight stance, who does nothing here but give into his thoughts of fear and sadness. 

 Another very nice distinguishing part of this piece is the ground base, which is a solid green land with some dirt. This statue not only recreates the scene but adds to the deadly potential that is seen in Raditz when he poses a threat. Plus the muscles on limbs rocks as they look so toned and bulged with veins on them. The red bands on Raditz' limbs were given by his father, Bardock, featured on manga side story after Raditz won in tournament.
