There are a lot of Edward Elric figures out there to choose from, but this one earns points for hardly resembling a figure at all. The tattered edges of the robe look incredibly realistic.

The colors are also vivid and add another dimension to this figure. Many fans have a personal attachment to+ Edward for many reasons. He is brave in spite of personal tragedy, and his journey is fascinating to see.

If you do pick up Edward, don’t forget to get his brother (they deserve to be together!).

Hatsune Miku : Project Diva, Sakura Version 2019 Taito

Hatsune Miku meets a kawaii pink ensemble in this totally adorable figure. Cherry blossoms are timeless, yet this figure feels fresh and jubilant. The red cherry accents on her pigtails are the perfect pop of color.

The Hatsune Miku Sakura figures were so adored when they were released that there’s been a yearly version ever since. You’ll see some minor updates and improvements from year to year, but these anime figurines will always have the trademark color of sakura and Hatsune Miku’s elaborate hairstyle.

Poses will also change from year to year, but 2019’s pose seems to be the most liked.

Hatsune Miku : Project Diva, Sakura Version 2020, Taito

This is the 2020 version of Hatsune Miku in her Sakura ensemble, and it’s clear that Taito went all out. From the pose to her clothes and even the stand shaped like a sakura blossom, this figure is a treasure.

Berserker of Black – Fate/Apocrypha, Taito

It’s amazing what people are able to sculpt and produce using PVC, and this figure is proof of that. The dynamics of the Berserker of Black’s delicate back veil and pillowy gown make it seem like anything but plastic. The gold details of the scepter are eye-catching.

Narmaya – Granblue Fantasy, Taito

Taito Granblue Fantasy: Narmaya Figure
  • Officially Licensed by Taito
  • Cute and collectible
  • New and sealed inside retail packaging
  • Limited availability
  • Approx. Size: 7"L x 5.5"W x 7"H

Like her character, this Narmaya figure is sweet but deadly. It’s a bit more on the risque side but not so over the top that you’d be embarrassed to display it. She comes with a long katana blade that is incredibly detailed on both the blade and the handle.

Shimakaze Love Kanmusume, Taito, Kantai Collection

Taito Kantai Collection: Shimakaze Love...
  • Officially licensed by Taito
  • Very limited Quantity
  • Minor assembly required
  • Each sold separately
  • Approx. Size: 3.1"L x 2.7"W x 7"H

This figure is totally adorable for so many reasons. First of all, you’ve got to draw attention to the stand, which is half of a heart. It pairs with another figure in the line that matches her stance. Adorable! The heart-shaped chocolate box is a lovely romantic touch.

Shanks – One Piece World, Banpresto Colosseum Vol. 2

If you’re not familiar with Banpresto’s Colosseum, this is how it works: only the top artists around the world are invited to an exclusive competition where they are tasked with sculpting the ultimate figure.

A winner is crowned as champion, and the best submissions are minted in production. This figure is a result of that battle of the artists, and you can clearly see the craftsmanship involved with it.

Shanks is perfectly sculpted, from his muscles to his casual clothes and stance. However, behind him is an incredibly rendered cape that offsets the figure.

Even if you’re not a huge One Piece fan, this figure is an amazing addition to your collection. The colors alone (including the gold detailing on the pants) make this a worthwhile buy.

Monkey D. Luffy – Stampede Movie – One Piece, Banpresto

Banpresto Onepiece Stampede Movie King...
  • Officially licensed product
  • Base stand included
  • From the popular series one piece...
  • Luffy
  • Anime

The realism of this figure of Luffy is unparalleled in the world of anime figures. You can see every fiber in his straw hat and even the veins in his muscles.

This figure specifically hails from the Stampede movie, and Banpresto did an impeccable job of replicating Luffy’s fighting stance. It comes with a discreet black stand to support Luffy in his wild lunge. This figure is a great choice to commemorate the protagonist of One Piece.

Boundman – Stampede Movie – One Piece

One of the neatest things to appreciate about this figure is the stand is built-in, disguised by the clouds billowing around Luffy. There’s some minor assembly required for this figure, but it’s not much at all and quite on par with the few steps required for any figure to get it looking its best right out of the box.

This piece makes great for a standalone display because it truly feels like a part of the environment, and the eye is never distracted by a bulky stand.

Roronoa Zoro – The Grandline Men – One PieceBanpresto, Vol. 2

Banpresto 39846 One Piece DXF The...
  • Official licensed product
  • Base stand included

It’s always good to have an antagonist in your collection, and Zoro is perfect for that. Of course, the most important thing to Zoro is his blade, which is a big feature of this figurine. With his trademark grimace, he holds his sword behind his head, his hand at his sheath.

Nami – Treasure Cruise World – One Piece, Banpresto

This Nami figurine is fun, flirtatious, and perfect as the first piece in a beginner’s collection. Her stand is built into the base of her boots, and minimal assembly is required.

The colors are bold and striking as well. They really captured Nami’s hair color and even took careful consideration to make sure her nails were painted. That’s an indicator of a well-made figure.



Digital Artist

I’m a digital artist who is passionate about anime and manga art. My true artist journey pretty much started with CTRL+Z. When I experienced that and the limitless color choices and the number of tools I could use with art software, I was sold. Drawing digital anime art is the thing that makes me happy among eating cheeseburgers in between veggie meals.
