Bandai UK’s Dragon Ball Pop Up events continue

Bandai UK continue to host Dragon Ball Pop Up events around the country this month, after a successful start in Liverpool last week.

The characters of the mega-hit Dragon Ball anime series arrive in Manchester this weekend to continue celebrations for the launch of a new and extensive range of action figures based on the number one anime series in the UK.

This is the first time ever that Dragon Ball-licensed toys have been widely available in the UK for the kids’ and toy market outside specialist stores.

The range is expected to be hugely popular amongst nostalgic collectors and those new to the brand. From Dragon Stars figures that have 17 points of articulation, to super-sized Limit Breaker figures, mini-blind bag collectables and Evolve action figures, there’s something for every fan to own. 

Fans of one of the most successful manga and anime series of all time will be welcomed at Elk Mill Retail Park, where Dragon Ball will move beyond the anime universe and into a new dimension.

Fans can enter a giant and immersive Dragon Ball zone to experience the world of GokuVegetaGohan and more. Step into the wind machine and catch as many Dragon Balls as you can before the time runs out. Play the hit video game on one of the Playstation stands – or experience Dragon Ball ‘Wheel of Fortune’!

Pose in the Dragon Ball photobooth and capture a memory of your time in the zone.  

All this is on offer, plus the potential of gifts and giveaways over the course of the weekend for those visiting the zone – everyone, say Bandai, will leave with Dragon Ball goodies.
