0

You would have been hard-pressed to find a Bulma action figure years ago, but more recently she is finally being shown the love and respect she deserves. Bulma is being immortalized into action figures and collectible form, in a plethora of styles that truly showcase her contribution to one of the best anime franchises in history.

Bulma is the first and most significant female character of the entire Dragonball series, as it’s her search for the Dragonballs themselves that Goku joins in the story line. Bulma is also significant to the series through her friendship with Goku, as well as a relationship with Yamcha, eventual marriage to Vegeta and being the mother of Trunks.

So, without further ado, here are the 13 best Bulma action figures of all time, ranked from worst to best.

#13 Dragonball Z Bulma from Frieza Saga with Ginyu Frog

Articulation: 1/5 stars
Detail: 1/5 stars
Accessories: 2/5 stars
Potential Investment Value: 4/5 stars
Overall Quality: 2/5 stars

A rare find, this is the Dragonball Z Bulma action figure, as she appeared in the Frieza Saga storyline of the second series of the franchise. This figure is simply an action figure. It is a partially articulated, small figure, packaged in a plastic case with arms and legs that have minimal movement. The details of the figure are also minimal and pretty basic when compared to other collectibles.

The figure is from 2002 and is all but gone these days, making it incredibly hard to find, and expensive when found. The figure is modeled after Bulma’s look during the Frieza Saga storyline from Dragonball Z. Bulma is wearing a sort of fully covered battle outfit, compared to her usual casual and utilitarian looks. Her hair is in a short bob-cut and put in a hair band to keep out of her face. The figure also comes with a Ginyu frog, which is what Captain Ginyu was transformed into during the storyline.

While it is considered rare, the figure itself is nothing special given its styling and design. You can find it on Amazon here: Bulma DBZ figure with Ginyu Frog.

#12 Dragonball Z Vegeta and Bulma Wedding Day Model

Articulation: 0/5 stars
Detail: 3/5 stars
Accessories: 0/5 stars
Potential Investment Value: 2/5 stars
Overall Quality: 2/5 stars

The Dragonball Z Vegeta and Bulma Wedding Day display figure features not just Bulma, but also her immediate family. The figure is more for display purposes and comes with the characters on a stylized base that is part of the thematic design.

Standing at 22 cm, the figure features Bulma in an all-white wedding dress, holding a bouquet coyly over her face. Beside her stands Vegeta in an all-white suit, sporting his usual scowl. The display also sees a young baby Trunks crying in the corner, which is an odd choice if this is to be their wedding scene. All the characters stand on a cobbled street, with a Palm tree in the background and a picket fence in front. The scene truly paints an image of family, happiness and a celebration.

Having married the initial villain become anti-hero Vegeta, this figure perfectly captures a different side of Bulma that we’re used to seeing. While Bulma is usually shown with her gadgets, vehicles and in her basic and utility outfits, it’s great to have a figure of her from an event that was incredibly significant for the character, as well as the advancement of the Dragonball story. Most Dragonball figures are all action and adventure, while this one is more sweet, showcasing a celebratory moment in the characters’ lives.

Unfortunately, though, the statue is not articulate at all, and solely for display purposes.

Another Bulma bike figurine comes in the form of Bandai’s FigureRise Mechanics line, and it’s amazing!

This figure contains an articulated Bulma action figure that features Bulma in her trademarked hair tied back, with a white tee, cargo pants, and combat boots; the look is very much of the type of inventive and grease-monkey character that Bulma is shown to be during the franchise.

The regular mode is the bike mode, that sees Bulma in a motorcycle that’s similar to the other models she is known as riding in the Manga or Anime series. The bike can then be reconfigured into a tri-wheel vehicle with Bulma leaning back into it. The best version, however, is the bi-ped mode, which sees Bulma stand up, with the wheels on her feet and additional arms on the vehicle for combat or technical work.

This figure is one of the best on the list because it can be changed up between the different modes, depending on what your mood happens to be at the time.

The customization makes this a unique one that stands from other most non-articulate figures, while still not compromising on detail, aesthetics or functionality.
