This month’s theme was Dragon Ball 30th Anniversary.
You’ll get a large, glossy, information sheet in your box. You’ll find the value of items along with descriptions and further detail on each item.
I’m not a Dragon Ball Z fan – but I was loving unboxing and building these figures!
Master Stars Piece Figure Gohan – Value $30
This one is tough to find online (and I was warned by the owner to watch out for counterfeit statues with imports from Japan – be careful out there!). You could have received Gohan or Gotenks. I like to think I got the better one because it’s pretty great!
This is Gohan after he’s gone Super Saiyan 2.
There is FANTASTIC detail on the statue – I tried to get a good close up to show you all.
Goku Heat Change Mug – Value $17
This was an exclusive mug for PreviewsWorld early in 2016. You could have received Goku or Majin Vegeta. I’m always a fan of a good heat changing mug – these have Goku going Super Saiyan on one side, and appearing in the logo on the other. The downfall to heat changing mugs – they’re not dishwasher safe.
Dragon Ball Z Goku Cap – Value $20
This is when my limited Dragon Ball Z knowledge comes into play. This is one of Goku’s symbols that he sports. It’s a snapback hat, so one size fits all.
Dragon Ball Z 66 Action Trading Figures – Value $10
The next item is a 66mm tall ‘trading figure’ – much better than trading cards in my opinion! These are really cool. They come in pieces that you’ll assemble (small pieces, so be wary with children). There are multiple hands to use, along with little slots on the base to store other hands for future use.
Here’s my assembled Vegeta. You can see the other hands on the base of the stand. There’s a ton of articulation on the figure as well – which I appreciate!
Best of Anime Series 2 Mystery Mini – Value $7
The next vinyl figure is from Funko – it’s a blind box mystery mini! These were just general Anime figures, but there was a 1 in 4 chance that you could receive a character from Dragon Ball Z.
I ended up getting Luffy from One Piece.
Dragon Ball Keychain – Value $4-5?
The final item gives you your own Dragon Ball!
Mine only had one star – but I believe they go up to a possible 7 starts. Very cool.
Verdict: I had a blast with this box and I’m not even a fan – so I suspect fans of Dragon Ball Z would love this month’s Lootaku! This is a pricier subscription, but I’m loving exploring the Japan toy market – the toys are so intricate and articulate, I love it. The value was there this month as well at around $90. It’s a bit more risky for the subscriber in the US since you’ll need to value most of the items to get value from the box + shipping overseas.
