BANPRESTO figures represent an exception to other brands that issue figures (see FIGURE PORTAL) because they can't be purchased in regular retail shops. Even online shops specialized in anime goods might not have them in their catalogs. The reason for this is that there is no official distribution to retailers from the manufacturer itself. So how to get your hands on those?

Well, when in Japan it is decidedly easier so much for sure. Commonly the items can only be gathered in GAME ARCADES, where skilled crane players fish the awards from the machines to keep it for themselves or to sell them later on through online marketplaces like or Rakuten.

Another channel for obtaining Banpresto figures and character goods is through ICHIBANKUJI LOTTERY AWARDS that are regularly held via convenience stores across Japan. Less skills are required, as the name suggests it works by the lottery principle, whereby everyone can easily participate in buying a ticket, usually around 500 JPY, items directly collectible upon show of the ticket at the cashier counter. However one got to be lucky to snatch the desired item in a first attempt. Also here some people collect them from the convenience stores to offer it online for sales.

Above a little bit about the background, how those demanded figures come to the market. Further, what makes Banpresto figures appealing to collectors is that they are limited in numbers, yet still reasonably priced and of decent quality. Highly sought items obviously can have a costlier price tag as well, but generally speaking the figures are a great deal.
