What if the the greatest figure-makers had the chance to duke it out to see who was the best? Well, toy-maker Banpresto has just the event to let them do so: the Banpresto Figure Colosseum. And, the high-quality Dragon Ball Z and One Piece figures that competed at the past two competitions will be reproduced and put in crane game machines in Japan beginning this May as part of the SCultures line of figures.
