KeshiGomu Part 3 Tambourine figurine

  • Dorakeshi Keshi-Gomu Part 3
  • Release date: 1990

In the 90's, a series of miniature quarter-priced rubber machine toys was released, much like the Ultimate Muscle series and coming in randomized colors. They are known as Dorakeshi Keshi-Gomu and are rather hard to come by. All characters in this set came in a random color and all of them were very tiny and immobile. Tambourine appears once in this specific miniature set, although the same mold appears in numerous colors, such as red, green, blue, yellow, or tan. The mini rubber figurine comes in a basic stance, one hand resting on his side and the other held in a tight grip. It is the only Tambourine in this Keshi format. Characters included in the Part 3 Keshi set are Zarbon, Dodoria, Cui, Frieza in his first form, Goku with Gregory, a Namekian warrior, Cyborg Tao, Master Shen, Piano, Tambourine, Sūi, Bulma, Gohan, Muuri, and Great Ape Vegeta for a total of 15 pieces.

Capsule Neo Part 7 Tambourine versus Goku diorama set

  • Capsule Neo Part 7
  • Release date: 2005

The first MegaHouse series to incorporate Tambourine was a Neo special edition set released in 2005. The series, entitled “Memories,” portrayed Tambourine along with Goku in their fierce scuffle, with Goku getting the upper hand. Goku appears to be slamming his elbow directly into Tambourine’s face, propelling him in the other direction and creating a powerful rift effect as a part of the gashapon display. There is great detail in Tambourine’s facial reaction, including his great deal of pain due to this strike and the overall impression placed on his one eye being opened wide and the other near-closed from the surprise of the impact. In terms of combat, this was one of the most intricate designs in the 2005 Dragon Ball Capsule Neo set.

The second MegaHouse series to incorporate Tambourine was a Neo special edition set released in January 2007.

In terms of combat, this was one of the most intricate designs in the 2007 Dragon Ball Capsule Neo set. This figurine was a re-release of the previous Part 7 diorama in a new set.
