An estimated $19 billion is generated annually by the anime industry. Figurine collectors account for a sizable chunk of this. Many people find figure collecting to be a mysterious and esoteric pastime, one that is difficult to comprehend.
Most anime fans, on the other hand, see this as the closest they’ll ever get to experiencing the worlds and tales they’ve come to love through a figurine of their favorite character.
A few minor inaccuracies were found in the initial list, thus this list has been updated to correct them.
1. This $13,000 Gigantor Is The Last Of Its Kind (Iron Man No. 28)
Gigantor from Iron Man 28 is one of the best-looking figures on the list, despite the fact that it’s not the most pricey. Because of its age and wear and tear, it has a distinct personality that some of the more modern figures lack. This is a must-have item for older anime lovers and collectors, although most younger fans won’t know about it. This is the only original Gigantor figure for sale; it’s part of a first series, limited edition run.
2. A $19,000 Megumi Kato Figure Was Made To Honor The Anime (Saekano: How To Raise A Boring Girlfriend)
In Saekano: How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend, the main character Megumi Kato is one of the most expensive figures ever made. Aniplex made a rare life-size statue of the popular “girlfriend” character in honor of the anime. As one of just ten figures ever made, she has a unique place in the realm of anime memorabilia. Considering the $19,000 price tag, it would be a huge disappointment if she was uninteresting.
3. Like Cyan, A Show By Rock!! Fan Can Pick Up A Life-Sized Crow Of Their Own For $23,000 (Show By Rock!!)
Shingancrimsonz’s Crow, like Cyan Hijirikawa, the protagonist of Show By Rock!!, may be yours for around $23,000. Even with its exorbitant price tag, the figure’s design and life-size proportions are impossible to argue with.
Otaku all over the world are sure to fall in love with Crow’s dynamic pose when they see it. The majority of anime devotees get their fix when they are young. Those ambitions can be realized in 23 years of patience and prudent money management by saving $1,000 a year.
4. Only One Of The Ten Mumei Figures For $24,000 (Kabaneri Of The Iron Fortress)
One of the most exciting and action-packed anime shows ever made. It’s only natural that Mumei, the film’s protagonist, would have a vibrant role model. Only twelve of Mumei’s five-foot-plus tall incarnations are known to exist. In certain cases, life-size figures fail to meet expectations and appear mass-produced. Nothing of the sort exists here. Mumei appears to be a meticulously created work of art, as befits its exorbitant price tag.
5. This Dismantled Astro Boy Figure Still Goes For $25,000 (Astro Boy)
Quality and price make this retro, life-sized Astro Boy figure a bargain. Only one is known to exist, and it portrays an Astro Boy that has been partially disassembled. A piece of animation history, the LED lights in his eyes still work.
This person’s ultimate resting place is likely to be a museum. Anyone reading Astro Boy who had unlimited funds, on the other hand, could go out and buy it now.
6. For $27,000, Anyone Can Get Their Own Lala Satalin Deviluke (To LOVE-Ru)
First of the Deviluke sisters to acquire a life-size statue was Lala, according to LoveRu’s. First, prospective fans had to take part in a lottery for a chance to purchase one of the ten available. Apart from the purchase details, the figurine is a focal point in an otaku’s living room that gets people talking about it. The craftsmanship involved is well worth the price of admission, and it’s easy to believe that the figure builder has given life to the character.
7. Get A Bridal Version Of Momo Belia Deviluke For A Heavy Sum Of $27,000 (To LOVE-Ru)
It was Max Factory’s idea to dress up Momo Belia Deviluke as a bridesmaid in wedding gown-sized undergarments. Fans can purchase one of these ten Momo figurines for for $27,000.
Incredibly, the toy maker was able to capture the persona so faithfully. It’s no wonder that just ten of these things were ever produced, given the insane amount of time and effort required.
8. Hardcore Fans Can Drop $200,00 For An RX-78-2 Gundam Figure (Gundam)
Unlike the gold-plated RX-78-2 Gundam kit, this bad boy is made entirely of precious metals. Gundam Converge creators created it, yet it keeps the classic form and style of the classic Gundam robot. It measures 125mm in height, or nearly five inches, and is dripping with anime glitz. As a collector’s piece, this is highly sought after, yet it’s possible to build a completely functional Gundam mech for the same price.
9. A Jewelry Company Tried Their Hand At Gundam Converge For $200,000 (Gundam)
An lovely gold-plated model of the Gundam Converge was created by Tanaka Kikinzoku Jewelry as a side project. In honor of Tokyo’s Art of Gundam exhibition, the figurine was constructed.
That said, it’s just as expensive, but it’s significantly superior when it comes to its design. The small and condensed design of this battling robot, despite its short stature of less than two inches, gives it an endearing appearance. We should cease making gold bars and start making robots out of the precious metal instead.
10. Grab This Solid Gold Monkey D. Luffy For Almost $200,000 (One Piece)
Tokuriki Honten debuted the most costly anime collectible ever with the unveiling of One Piece Gold: a gold statue of Monkey D. Luffy. It’s not the most polished piece of art, but the fact that it’s made of actual gold adds to its distinct appeal. It’s more of a financial decision than anything else to buy this. For the most part, One Piece fans aren’t in a position to spend that much money on a figurine. Even so, it’s a stunning representation of the real-life Pirate King.
