Angel Goku From Banpresto’s Ichiban Kuji Series
This cover-art-inspired action figure depicts Goku in angelic form, sporting a full-sized set of white wings and a halo. If you’re a fan of Akira Toriyama’s drawing style, then you’ll love this figure set in one of his most iconic pages ever inked. Banpresto sticks pretty close to the hand-drawn rendering by situating Goku atop the dragon Shenron.
King Cold From Banpresto’s Tokyo Toy Festival
This limited edition of the Dragon Ball villain is one of only 500, making it quite a rare find. Keeping in style with the character’s towering appearance in the canon, the figure version stands at just over one foot. This collectible comes with a vinyl throne which King Cold can either sit in or stand beside.
Super Saiyan Goku From SH Figuarts’ San Diego Comic-Con Exclusive Series

Due to its rarity and exclusivity, this figure can go for fairly high prices online.
Yardrat Goku From Bandai’s Full Action Pose Series
Considered the rarest of all Dragon Ball collectibles, the Yardrat Goku is so mysterious and limited that some believe it doesn’t even exist.
