Many things have changed and we shall take a quick look at our base.
Human size figure – Hikari Miyamoto
In conjunction with the product development of Figuarts Zero Summer Lesson: Hikari Miyamoto figure which is scheduled for August 2017, Bandai has also been considering about producing a figure that would allow fans of Hikari to enjoy the “real feeling” of her “being really there” with them!.

Types of figure collectors
What kind of figure collector are you? (^o^)
Bootleg Anime Figures
As a serious collector of licensed products, you probably know how yucky bootleg figures can be and if you’re a new collector, just starting out on collecting anime figures you may not be aware of just how many bootleg figures are in the market. In fact, you might even pick up one without realizing it.
Yuck. So let’s shed some light into this shady bootleg zone and turn you into a knowledgeable collector.
