Goku makes first appearance in Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

Among the American Thanksgiving traditions of turkey, pie, and football is the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City. For 2018, the parade welcomed a newcomer — Super Saiyan Blue Goku from Dragon Ball.

At 56 feet tall, 70 feet long and 36 feet wide, this massive Saiyan required 90 people to handle and selected to promote the upcoming film Dragon Ball Super: Broly, which premieres later this year in Japan.

It’s the first time a manga character has appeared in this 92 year-old parade.

Piccolo and Goku have the power… to light up a room!

Light up your room with some help from Dragon Ball Z! Etsy store LitUpInteriorDesign repurposes items into functional lamps including bottles, household art items and anime figures.

Each lamp is hand-made using recycled wood, black paint, a light bulb, and a centrepiece item, in this case the Dragon Ball Z characters are positioned in such a way that the lamp appears as a well-coordinated attack.

Of course, there’s not just Goku and his friends; there’s also a lamp featuring Sailor Moon with the bulb placed over the sailor soldier like her namesake lunar satellite.

However, these awesome and fully functional lights don’t come cheap as they range between $140 and $167 CAD ($99 – $125 USD) in price. But they do ship internationally!

Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’ coming to Canadian theatres this August

The latest Dragon Ball Z movie is hitting Canadian theatres for one day only this summer! On August 6th, select Cineplex locations will be screening the English dub of Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection ‘F’.

Goku’s greatest nemesis is back! Following the epic battle against Beerus in Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods, Frieza has been revived and seeks revenge on Goku and his friends on Earth. In an unlikely alliance, Goku partners up with Vegeta in hopes their combined strength will be enough to stop Frieza once and for all, while protecting the planet.

Dragon Ball Z movie to hit the big screen in August

It’s been at least 17 years since Goku and his friends made an appearance in theatre. Now you can catch the legendary Saiyan in his newest feature film this August, Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods.

Peace on Earth doesn’t last long as a new threat looms over the planet. The God of Destruction, Beerus, begins scouring the galaxy in search of the one who crushed Frieza so that he can fight him. Goku, the one Beerus is looking for, isn’t strong enough to take on this powerful new enemy. In order to face the God of Destruction, Goku must become a God himself. Can Goku save the Earth?

While there are two showings in the United States, Canadian fans will be able to watch Dragon Ball Z: Battle of Gods on Thursday, August 7th, 2014 at select Cineplex locations. Check your theatre for showtimes and tickets.
