I stopped off at the Irwin Toy section at the Javitz
center on Tuesday while at the International Toy Fair in
February. Irwin usually has a pretty large display of DBZ,
Sailor Moon, Reboot, and other Toys. Above is an image from a
portion of the DBZ display.
A couple of things in this photo: On the left is the
Time Capsule "Real lights and sound time travel action, funky metallic
paint, complete with exclusive Trunk 5" articulated
On the right in the forefront is a new 9" Goku
"Collector Edition Figures" - "More muscle,
more veins, highly detailed figurings. Each includes a
stand. SS Vegeta & SS Goku will also be available.
These look cool.
I spoke to Grant Irwin from Irwin Toy about future
DBZ figure releases. Being a figure collector, This is
what I was interested in. Here's what I learned:

Okay ... so we're just big kids at heart. We
couldn't pass up the chance to get our photo taken with Goku before we
left. On the right is Sharon from H&S Media (the publisher
of all the Pojo's Magazine titles).
