In addition to the new line of Dragon Ball Capsule R figures we reported earlier this morning, Megahouse has announced it will also be re-releasing the second “Desktop Real McCoy” Son Goku figure. It will be available in March 2013, just as “Battle of Gods” hits theaters in Japan — the franchise’s first theatrical film in 17 years:
For the first time in 17 years, “Desktop Real McCoy” for Dragon Ball Z — in the spotlight with its completely new film release — is making a return. Using the famous illustration that decorated the 34th volume of the comics, this product is truly a quality 3D recreation. With prints to be mounted on the base in a brand new fashion, this work will have a slightly different aura than the previous one.
This particular figure was previously released in 2010, although under the Dragon Ball Kai branding. As mentioned in the product description, this figure is based on the cover of Tankōbon Volume 34 drawn by Akira Toriyama. The only real difference between the two releases will be a new Capsule Corp. logo on the re-released figure’s base. If you missed this figure the first time around, it is available for ¥4,935 MSRP from both CDJapan and Hobby Link Japan. Pre-orders officially open today, and CDJapan specifically notes that their pre-order deadline is coming up soon on 19 December 2012.
