Dragon Ball Z was the first anime to penetrate American mainstream media in 1990's. The beloved television show—brainchild of Akira Toriyama—was the first Japanese program to dominate ratings on both sides of the Pacific. In an epic adventure, Goku and his eclectic group of friends searched the cosmos for the almighty Dragon Balls. Making friends and vanquishing villains along the way, the heroes strived to complete their Dragon Ball collection, for accomplishing the feat grants an individual one wish to be realized.



Score and Jakks Pacific expect the Transformation assortment to be available in June at Toys “R” Us, Kmart and KB Toys with a suggested retail price of $6.99.
