Banpresto

Guru Ichiban Kuji Coin Bank

  • Ichiban Kuji Coin Bank series
  • Release date: 2009

Guru is featured in the Banpresto piggy bank assortment released in May, 2009. He is seen in a cute format, resting on his equally miniature-styled throne. The mini piggy banks in this set are very highly detailed although they are made in a chibi format and have larger, pronounced eyes. In the case of Guru, his eyes are closed, but there is lots of detail on the piece due to his wrinkles and elderly features, adding further impression to his particularly large-sized cheeks and belly. The boxart has Guru’s name written as “Saichourou” and this is a unique piece for any collection as a chibi piggy bank. Others included in the same coin bank set are Dodoria, Korin, and Porunga.

SAICHOUROU-2010-b

DX Creatures series 2 Guru

  • DX Creatures series 2
  • Release date: 2010

Banpresto has also released quite a few figures for the “Dragon Ball Creatures” series. This series is likely the most highly detailed and sculpted in a monstrous fashion, showcasing the brutal aspects of the series’ villains as well as some of the most intricately designed characters overall. Released in February, 2010, and approximately 5 inches tall, Guru debuted in the “Creatures” series 2 lineup in his great elderly fashion, with his aging body and wrinkled features detailing the piece along with his throne chair. The figure size is also distinguished as it is quite tall (standing at about 5 inches). There is heavy detail on the clothes, but the enormous amount of detail on his face is what makes this piece stand out. This is also one of the largest size Guru pieces available, best displaying him in the basic figure height. The boxart depicts Guru’s title as “Saichourou” as an alternate naming scheme. Others included in this same set are Great Ape (Ohzaru) Vegeta and Porunga (Polunga).

Unifive

Guru-unifive-4cm

Guru figurine with base from Collection Box Number 2 Type-B

  • Release date: 2004

Unifive has released a very collectible and masterfully designed miniature of Guru in August 2004 with a logo base to stand on. The figurine remains immobile although its distinct features are visible. For one, he comes with his throne, unlike the other pieces included in this set. The Dragon Ball is on top of his throne, a vivid and memorable part of the piece. Of course, his expression remains gentle and at ease. This is likely the smallest piece available for Guru, standing at 4 cm. Also included in this set is a Porunga, Super Saiyan 3 Goku, Android 19, and baby Goku in a Saiyan space pod.
