Corriere dello Sport (a daily sports newspaper) will be having 5 inch scale (13cm) DBZ figures at newsstands... very similar to how DeAgostini DBGT figures were sold 15+ years ago! There will be 28 characters! These should begin distribution at the end of August, on August 26th, 2019. The statues will be published weekly: every Monday as attachment to the newspaper at the Italian newsstands participating in the initiative.

They were 14.99 Euro ($16.81 at August 2019) which was pretty expensive for small statues without articulation.
Just to inform you they made also a second release of the same figures with a discounted price. I guess they might have overproduced them, or in contrary the sales went good enough so it was possible to contain the retail cost.
Considering a second reissue it is probably because sales went good.
As a comparision Deagostini figures were released in several issues for example due to great sales and each time they even added more figures. Sadly they are not adding more figures to this collection, it seems.
