I confess: When I was young, I didn’t watch a whole lot of Dragon Ball. But it was so popular that I would get a glimpse of it now and then when I would visit friends, both in comics and on television. I guess I can attribute my lack of Dragon Ball consumption to the fact that I lived in a small town called Mesquite, Texas that was always behind when it came to what was cool and trendy!
Out of all the Japanese entities that A Bathing Ape has not done collaborations with, I always wondered why they never did one with Dragon Ball. They could have made some really amazing and nostalgic pieces! Baby Milo with Kid Goku and Kid Trunks, BAPE camo with the Flying Nimbus camo’ed out, and a couple of other ideas that I will probably knock out in the next couple of days. For now, hope you enjoy my custom Kid Goku BAPE character!
