I knew I was on a slippery slope when I picked up the Medicom Real Action Heroes Dragonball Z Goku and Piccolo, regardless of how good of a deal I got at the time.  So when I learned that Medicom would be making a VCD (that stands for Vinyl Collectible Dolls, but I can’t bring myself to put “Dolls” in the title of this article) Gohan, and that it would be coming with an alternate head for the RAH Piccolo, I admitted defeat.

Sideshow is importing the Gohan VCD, but when I asked, they told me that the package they are carrying does not include the Piccolo head.  So off to Ebay I went, paying big international prices and shipping.  I feel dirty.

Although I lived in Japan for a couple of years, I wasn’t introduced to the Dragon Ball Z anime until I was living back in the States.  Even then, a typical episode featured a lot of build-up, but little payoff.  The show could drag a fight over six or more episodes – 20 minutes of intent stares, grunting, and posing, followed by a couple minutes of frenetic action, and then, BAM, to be continued.

I didn’t become a crazy fan until my wife picked me up a copy of the manga.  I knew then that one day I’d be spending insane amounts of money on something like a 12-inch scaled Goku (Son Gokou, in Japan) from Medicom.
