Some Dragon Ball Z toys are very coveted by toy collectors and Dragon Ball fanatics because they are rare.

The Dragon Ball series is a world famous Japanese anime series that was created by Akira Toriyama. It began with the story of a small child with a monkey tail named San Goku. There, the adventures started. Goku, together with his training partner, Klirin entered a tournament where they battled out several powerful and older players. It is only not the competition that they fight. Goku has also fought over the peace of the world from several villains that threatened to claim it. The series focuses on the adventures of Goku through his life. He battles out more serious enemies like Majinbu, Freeza, and Cell. Of course, Goku cannot survive and win it all on his own. He has friends like Vegetta, Vulma, ChiChi, Piccolo, and TenchinHan. Goku had sons with ChiChi named Gohan and Goten. His two kids together with Trunks (the son of Vegetta and Vulma) has continued the adventures when Goku was in the other world (the place where dead ones go). The story revolves around the idea of dragon balls. When all the dragon balls are completed and are put in one area close to each other, the balls will produce the magical and almighty dragon where one can make wishes. The dragon will grant the wish and will disappear and the balls will fly out in space to different directions and the search for them starts again.
