Should You Buy Anime Figures?

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

Of course, none of the anime companies in the world would think about telling you this (if they offer anime-related figures).

They’d think this doesn’t make sense.

Or does it?

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

Anyone who says the opposite is taking advantage of you.

With this in mind In that spirit, here’s a list with advantages and disadvantages to think about. Particularly if you’re in the initial stages of buying and collecting anime characters.


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

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

The anime characters, generally are constructed to last and last for a long time, the same way from an ornament.

So long as you take good care of your Azur Lane figures they’ll endure for many years to come.

2. Amazing aesthetics

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

In general, whatever anime figurine you purchase, it’s guaranteed to be eye-catching that will 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, PVC figures, or action figures. They all use top quality materials. PVC Statues made of the finest.

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

4. Parts that move easily and have lots of flexibility

Contrary to PVC Statues that are more like ornaments, Nendoroid’s as well as action figures come with moveable parts. Each comes with an assortment of body components, accessories that you can swap, and many more.

This is the reason why Figma’s and Nendoroid’s extremely realistic, since you’re basically bringing your favorite cartoon characters into the real world.

5. The purchase of anime characters puts money back into the business

It may sound obvious, however it is worth mentioning.

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

The procedure is as follows:

The producer produces an item.
A distributor (or retailer) buys it.
The retailer sells it to the general public.
Customers purchase the product.
Retailers earn profits.
The profit is then returned to the purchase of additional anime figures.
The company (and distributors) offer more anime figures according to the demand.
It’s a cycle that continues.

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

At the end of the day everyone is a winner. Everyone wins.


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

Similar to similar products, the amount you pay for it can influence this.

Let’s consider the above picture as an illustration. It’s priced between PS900 to PS1000plus. It’s not a normal price by any standard.

The supply of this figure is extremely limited across the world and, more importantly, dropping a statue like that from any level could have a negative impact.

Figures from anime aren’t as fragile as glass, however it’s still worth noting.

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

Contrary to laptops or smartphone, you aren’t able to run towards the maker (or retail store) and hope that your anime character will be fixed.

It’s not the way it works.

If the item gets damaged during transportation and you’re not sure, you’ll be able to get a replacement default. Any damage that’s self-inflicted can be difficult to repair.

In some instances, you will not be able to fix the damage, based on the severity. Unless you are able to reattach the pieces.

However, in general, it’s an arduous process that’s best avoided altogether!

3. The more anime characters you purchase, the smaller space you’ll have available for storage

If you do not have a room large enough to accommodate these numerous figurines.

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

Like any other form of collecting, you need to be prepared for having too many things to keep track of. Finding the room to keep all your treasures.

This is a matter of how committed you are and whether or you’re an occasional collector. It’s not a big issue with respect to the amount of figures you buy.
