Collecting is a phenomenon that can be observed worldwide and is found in many forms. Japan poses no exception to this and means a great deal to many, who love to gather their favorite anime/manga series, toys and more. Pop-culture goods then make up a big portion, whereby figures and statues of all kinds rank in the upper spheres in the genre. Well, it can be asserted that for a large fellowship of the community it is more than just a popular pastime activity because aficionados can create miniature worlds of their own, which are then inhabited by their favorite characters, with whom they can interact and build up an intimate relationship. Meanwhile figures are much more than just a private display at home, people take them out to make pictures, write blogs about them to share their affection with other like-minded people.
Figures and scale models come in a wire range including characters from manga, anime, and video games, as well as specimens from outside the world of pop-culture - the list almost endless. This is not only true for the genres, but also the sizes, which run plentiful from miniatures to large scale figures. We narrow down the scope a bit by picking out and introducing the most sought types ones of anime, manga, hit movies and video games. Yet it may be still a bit overwhelming to keep the overview in the abundance of brands, categories and shapes, where to begin or continue collecting. Supposedly there is no right or wrong in doing, but creating a collection that can be enjoyed by oneself for many years without losing interest is a more complex affair than many might think it is. Seasoned collectors, depending on their budget, therefore often specialize on particular brands/themes or lay more a focus on the type of craftsmanship they consider most beautiful. This is thought to be a simple, yet effective basic rule to avoid growing a random mish-mash collection that one might eventually get bored of down the road. The brands listed below are well-established and appreciated for their continuous supply of quality products, therewith we hope to give a good starting help for newbies as well as a complete source for more experienced collectors to not lose track. We like to offer a humble portal to our customers, from where everyone can start or expand a collection.
We have categorized the brands with approx. price ranges for the figures BEFORE OR AT THE TIME OF RELEASE. Usually for figures the prices will likely go up once they are on the market because the number of items decreases gradually. So it follows a simple DEMAND/AVAILABILITY principle. For the price ranges indicated some products that are not yet on the shelves could pose exceptions, for example special/limited versions.

B Category 2500 - 7500 JPY
