    DIM MAK x DRAGON BALL SUPER follows the Universe Survival Arc as Goku discovers and achieves power level “Ultra Instinct” to rescue the multiverse from instant annihilation. The action-packed collection features highly covetable merchandise and collectibles showcasing legendary characters and scenes from the epic ‘Tournament of Power” where Goku and friends must challenge heroes and villains from beyond the cosmos vying for the favor of Zeno, the Omni-King.

    DIM MAK x ONE PIECE transports fans to Fishman Island aboard the Thousand Sunny pirate ship in search of treasure, to rescue friends, and to overcome enemies as Monkey D. Luffy continues in his quest to become King of the Pirates along with his loyal crew of Straw Hat Pirates. This super limited-edition collaboration features stunning art from the Fishman Island Arc on collectible skate decks and long boards, as well as on wearable goodies like hoodies, tees, and more.

    “Toei Animation has produced some of the greatest anime titles of all time. I grew up with DRAGON BALL and SAILOR MOON…then later discovered the amazing world of ONE PIECE, DIGIMON, and more. I love how their main protagonists start off as outsiders struggling to fit in while aspiring for greatness. Toei Animation tells stories of perseverance and the value of true friendship and kindness – themes that are always prevalent in my life too. I am humbled an honored to have such a rich history with Toei’s crossing between music and fashion. I am especially excited for NYCC where my brand, Dim Mak and Toei will truly collaborate on not just merchandise, but also the experience itself.” says Steve Aoki.

    “We’re thrilled to continue our collaboration with Steve Aoki as well as premiere these exciting new ONE PIECE and DRAGON BALL SUPER collections at New York Comic Con,” said Lisa Yamatoya, director of global marketing for Toei Animation Inc. “The Dim Mak pop-up is the first of its kind in our booth and we’re certain that fans will enjoy this immersive fashion experience.”

    The entire selection of merchandise from both collaborations will include an array of merchandise in a sophisticated color palette featuring fan-favorite characters and fight sequences from both titles, along with a selection of accessories and collectibles such as skate decks and long boards. Additionally, Steve Aoki autographed goodies will be available every day for lucky fans to win exclusively at New York Comic Con’s Toei Animation Booth 2537.

    About Dim Mak

    In 1996, Steve Aoki founded DIM MAK and developed it into an influential independent record label, music and fashion lifestyle brand. Responsible for launching the careers of seminal acts such as Bloc Party, The Bloody Beetroots, The Chainsmokers, M.I.A., Keys N Krates, The Kills, and countless others, the independently owned DIM MAK has consistently pushed new musical movements via its staunch DIY ethos. As a fashion leader, Dim Mak cultivates community by bringing together collaborators from all walks of life including the likes of Hiroshi Fujiwara, Sanrio, and Playboy, to name a few. With nostalgic references toward his youth, Aoki often includes manga, music, and games into the Dim Mak aesthetics. Aoki named his record label and subsequent fashion brand “Dim Mak” as a nod to Bruce Lee’s signature fight move: the touch of death. With a back catalog hundreds of records deep, a history of legendary live events, and a fully formed clothing line, Dim Mak continues its global mission of promoting boundary-pushing music and culture ‘by any means necessary.’
