Jakks Pacific

Jakks Nail a 2003-c

Brother vs. Brother 2-pack set of Nail and Piccolo figures

  • Brother vs. Brother 2-packs
  • Release date: 2003

Jakks Pacific has released a 2-pack of Nail along with Piccolo in its Dragon Ball Z series additions to the 2-pack sets. Released in 2003, this specific 2-pack is entitled “Brother vs. Brother,” which is a what-if battle as neither of these characters actually fought each other, but rather, fused to form a stronger fighting force. The box mockup is highlighted by a red and orange blaze. Nail is modeled to a perfect format with extreme detail and likely one of the best pieces in terms of Nail’s paint job and scale. This 2-pack is quite a rarity as it was released in scarce quantities, coincidentally making Nail a rather limited figure for the 5 inch radius. Also included in the packaging is a tree from planet Namek, likely to add to the atmosphere surrounding the characters. The packaging front flap reads “Brother vs. Brother” and details the character names as “Nail” and “Piccolo, Battle Damaged” as well as including the phrase “New Release!” on the side. The packaging backboard portrays images of Nail and Piccolo as a nice design scheme.
