Dragon Stars World Martial Arts Tournament Stage Playset From Bandai America

Recommended Posts

We first saw this Dragon Stars World Martial Arts Tournament Stage Playset playset from Bandai America on display back in February during Toy Fair. The set which is designed for their 6.5" Dragon Ball Dragon Stars action figures measures 9.08” High by 11.8” Deep. It has multiple configurations for battle damage. The cost is $29.99 and available for pre-order on Amazon.com. Look for it to be released in October 2020.

It's a good price for a playset for 6.5" scale figures.

Great pricepoint, though Id still have to wait to see how it really looks with the figures (with the dimensions it doesnt seem to be in real scale with the figures) its weird that the promo images dont show any figures on the set itself we'll have to wait for more pictures to see if its worth it for a collector or if its juts a playset meant for kids to play with

That's a really well done playset / diorama.  The price is awesome too.  Wish the pics showed some figures in it for size reference.  Honestly I wouldn't mind a molded backdrop type playset like this for things like Star Wars.  I could imagine it being done for Mos Eisley or Nevarro Streets.

I don't care WHAT you collect, that's cool.

this is exactly my thoughts, this is awesome, I'm not a Dragon Ball collector even at the least, but this being 30$ price point for a set up like this for 6 Inch figures, well man.. Hasbro check that out? cough X-Mansion cough cough

The more I look at this, the more I realize how clever the design is. It almost reminds me of those old Palisades Muppet play-sets.

Mortal Kombat figures would be right at home on this playset as well.

I'm thinking add a couple of Grayskull Rings, Neca Ninja Turtles and . . . BOOM, Battle Nexus.

I think there's a reason why no figures are shown. The height is listed at 9.08" and the stage part looks to be maybe 0.5" to 1" tall. So, I expect that the figures probably come up to around the crest of the second roof (not counting the ornamentation on top the roof). Fighting poses tend to mean bent knees so that will help reduce the figures height. It would also probably work well for 3.75" Snake-Eyes and Storm Shadow.

The price almost looks too good to be true for a plastic playset of this size. There's quite a few pieces and a lot of nice painted detail. The fact that Bandai can do this for $30 leads one to believe that other companies do seem to be charging more than they should. Especially those ridiculous cardboard sets from Hasbro.

Yeah, I didn't notice on the measures of the playset 'til now, I guess several of those fellas who are on toy photography can make it work by playing with the perspective.

Indeed, I have wanted to acquire some cardboard playsets and dioramas, but they have always seemed very expensive for what they really are. Do Hasbro make cardboard sets now?
