Android 8, Goku, and Buyon statue set

  • Resin-based model kit statue series
  • Release date: Unknown

A more recent release came in the form of a statue set which portrays Buyon, Android 8, and Goku in this excellent Muscle Tower showdown scene. Buyon is seen standing and prepared to devour his prey while Goku and Android 8 stand and face him. Android 8's reaction is that of complete fear and panic while Goku is seen enraged and ready to take on his opponent. Buyon is quite delighted with the idea of consuming his foes as this is displayed quite well with his reaction. Buyon's tongue is seen sticking out in an extreme manner as there's great impression placed on the bumps on his pink flabby and gelatinous skin. Another nice feature is the pile of bones next to Buyon, likely a reminder of the previous unfortunate soul who dared to fall in his sight.
