The world of anime has seen plenty of strange merchandise released in the past, but fans of Dragon Ball Z might have taken the cake when it comes to a bizarre recreation of the alien despot Frieza that was found in the wild. With the current sequel series of Dragon Ball Super taking the opportunity to resurrect the tyrant responsible for destroying the Planet Vegeta and nearly eradicating the Saiyan Race, the villain has found himself teaming up with the Z Fighters during the Tournament of Power Arc, while also still trying to eliminate Goku and Vegeta.
One of the biggest changes that befell Frieza when he was resurrected was a major transformation that allowed him to become “Golden Frieza” and put him on an even playing field with Goku and Vegeta in their Super Saiyan Blue forms. Brought in as a member of Universe 7’s team during the Tournament of Power, Frieza stuck to his evil ways and set out to eliminate competing brawlers in quite the nefarious way, holding no qualms when it came to stabbing foes, and friends, in the back when necessary. With the latest appearance of Frieza in Dragon Ball Super: Broly, it’s clear that though his interests aligned with the Z Fighters, he’s just as evil as he always was.
Twitter User Shiny 244 shared this unique merchandise which apparently has transformed the popular Dragon Ball Z villain into a Rubik’s Cube, creating a wild new take on the Shonen villain while also giving fans of Akira Toriyama’s franchise a new puzzle to solve via this wild figurine:

Since the recent film featuring the Legendary Super Saiyan, Frieza has yet to make an appearance in the arcs of the manga, aka the Moro and Granolah The Survivor Arcs. With an intergalactic bounty hunter searching for revenge against both the Saiyan Race and Frieza, we would imagine that we’ll see the alien tyrant return before the Granolah Arc comes to a close. It will definitely be interesting to see if Frieza has grown any stronger in his time away from the series or if he will make an appearance in this April’s Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero.
What’s the weirdest Frieza merchandise that you’ve seen? Feel free to let us know in the comments or hit me up directly on Twitter @EVComedy to talk all things comics, anime, and the world of Dragon Ball.
