Should I buy anime figures?

Yes there are pros as well as pros to purchasing anime characters.

Of course, none of the anime companies ever thought about telling you this (if they are selling anime characters).

It’s assumed that it’s not logical.

Or does it?

Every business and product has pros and pros and. It doesn’t matter what anyone is to convince (or advertising) you.

Anyone who claims that you are not is sabotaging you.

With this in mind Here’s a list of pros and cons to take into consideration. Particularly if you’re in the initial stages of buying and collecting anime figurines.


1. They’re designed to last for many years to come.

This is particularly true of PVC Statues. They’re of top quality.

The anime figures, generally are designed to last, just from an ornament.

So long as you’re not neglecting the care of your toys, they’ll endure for many years to come.

2. Amazing aesthetics

Take a look at this image in Zero Two. It’s gorgeous.

Every single element from Zero Two from Darling In The Franxx is recorded. It’s almost identical to the actual thing from the anime.

In general, whatever anime figurine you purchase, it’s sure to be eye-catching and be noticed regardless of where you put them.

3. Materials of the highest quality

It doesn’t matter if we’re speaking about PVC Statues Nendoroid’s, action figures. They all make use of high quality materials. PVC Statues made from the highest quality.

Although Nendoroid is most “cheapest” of the 3 designs, they’re still of an acceptable quality built into their designs.

It is due to the excellent manufacturing that is produced by companies such as Good Smile Company.

4. Parts that can be moved with lots of flexibility

Contrary to PVC Statues that are more than ornaments, Nendoroid’s action figures come with moving parts. Each comes with their own set of body components, accessories that you can swap, and many more.

This is what makes Nendoroid’s and Figma’s real, as they’re basically bringing your favourite character to life.

5. The purchase of anime characters puts funds back into the anime industry

It may sound obvious, but it’s worth noting.

Each time you buy it is reinvested back into the business.

The process is like this:

The manufacturer makes products.
A distributor (or retailer) buys it.
The retailer sells the product to the public.
Customers purchase the product.
Retailers earn profits.
This money is then used to purchase more anime characters.
The company (and distributors) offer more anime figures according to the demand.
This cycle goes on.

Between all this, there are anime companies that (that don’t have any connection to manufacturers) also earn money.

At the end of the day everyone gets a win. Everyone wins.


1. Certain anime characters have more brittleness than other characters.

Similar to similar products, how much you spend will be a factor in this.

Let’s consider Dimoo as an illustration. They can be priced between $900 and $1000plus. This isn’t the typical price by any standard.

The supply of this figure is extremely limited across the world and, more importantly, the dropping of a figure such as such from an appropriate level can be harmful.

The characters of anime aren’t as fragile as glass, however it’s still worth noting.

2. Not an easy fix after damage or a break.

In contrast to a laptop or smartphone, you’re not able to run into the company (or retail store) and hope that your anime character will be fixed.

It’s not the way it works.

If the item is damaged during transport and you’re not sure, you’ll receive a replacement by default. However, any damage that is self-inflicted is a challenge to repair.

In certain cases, you may not be able to fix the damage, based on the severity. If you’re not able to put pieces back together.

It’s an arduous process that’s worthwhile to avoid altogether!

If you don’t have the same amount of storage space as the picture above (like many) this could become an issue.

As with any type of collecting, you need be prepared for having too many things to be able to count. Finding the room to keep all your collection items.

The issue is how committed you are and whether you’re an occasional collector. It’s not a big issue with respect to the amount of figures you decide to purchase.
