Dragon Ball Z Super Saiyan 2 Son Gokou Statue – Value $30

There were 3 statues this month! The first is from Dragon Ball Z – you would receive 1 of a possible 11 statues.

lootaku-august-2016-36

These are some of my favorite statues – they having eye-popping color and are extremely detailed.

Here’s a 360-degree look at the statue!

lootaku-august-2016-50

Just look at how well-painted they are! Goku looks amazing!

lootaku-august-2016-17

One Piece SCultures 5 Vol. 7 – Ace Statue – Value $15 on Amazon

The next statue is from One Piece. You would receive 1 of 10 possible statues!

lootaku-august-2016-18

Mine was of Ace – I don’t know much about One Piece, but I’m a sucker for these statues!

Here’s your 360-degree look at the statue.

The same excitement applies to this statue – incredible paint job and detail.

lootaku-august-2016-5

Dragon Ball World Prince Vegeta – Value $12-15

This little figure was almost as good as another statue. Again, a lot of great detail and paint work.

lootaku-august-2016-16

Here’s Prince Vegeta!

Here’s the full figure – and a look at the stand with the clear plastic arm to help him stand. I think this figure could actually stand on its own, though.

Sasuke POP – Value $9 on Amazon

We also receive a Naruto Funko POP! You could have received Naruto or Sasuke.

lootaku-august-2016-55

One Piece Sword with Stand Zoro – Shusui – Value $8

The next item is a mini sword from One Piece.

lootaku-august-2016-56

It comes with a little sheath, too! The sword looks real and has a bit of weight to it – I was impressed.

lootaku-august-2016-57

Here’s a closer look – the sword blade is cut to look like it has a sharp edge.

lootaku-august-2016-62

It also comes with a stand that you can construct to display both sword and sheath.

lootaku-august-2016-58

One Piece Flag – Value $17 on Amazon

The last item from One Piece is the Straw Hat Pirates flag.

lootaku-august-2016-59

Naruto Forehead Protector – Value $5-9

The final valued item in the box was a headband from Naruto.

lootaku-august-2016-60

The symbol is metal  – this is worn in Naruto as part of village tradition.

lootaku-august-2016-61

Here’s a close look at the symbol itself. Akatsuki members would carve horizontal scratches into it when they have rejected their villages.

Random Damage #1

This final item was included as a free item this month. It’s actually a Lootaku original comic! It was definitely enjoyable and I loved the artwork. This issue was created for a June contest – and the winner was Skyler Ammons – excellent work.

Verdict: Another great delivery from Lootaku – I love getting these statues that I would otherwise not think about buying. While I’m not always a fan of the franchises, I’m a sucker for awesome statues – so really, Lootaku is right up my alley. You’ll be paying $67 total to get this to the US, but the value typically comes out on the right side – so if you’re into collector item figures and statues, especially ones from Japan, this could be the best box for you.

What did you think of the August Lootaku?
