At 21.5 cm (8.5 in) tall, Hilda looks great teamed up with or dueling against other 1/8-scale Pokémasters-in-training.

Returning by popular demand, Phat Company’s Shiro statuette replicates Yuu Kamiya’s original artwork of the intellectual game master. Shiro’s delicate, multi-hued hair gives her a childish, whimsical allure, but the miniature earth cradled in her hands reveals her true ambitions. At 1/7 scale, this complex statue condenses the story of No Game No Life into a single, highly detailed collector’s piece that includes chibi figures of Sora, Izuna, Jibril, Steph, and the coveted Imanity throne.

Orange Rouge – Touken Ranbu -Online- 1/8-scale Mikazuki Munechika “Awakened ver.” Figure (April 2018)

Orange Rouge holds nothing back in crafting a collectible worthy of the Five Great Swords’ most beautiful swordsman—Mikazuki Munechika. At 1/8 scale, every millimeter of his battle-worn body contrasts with his powerful stance, signaling the onslaught of his dangerous Awakened state. Mikazuki’s glimmering garb is carefully preserved with the geometric weave of his steel-blue kimono and the individual strands of his golden tassels frozen in time. The result is an impressive figure whose every detail cuts with the sharpness of a katana.

The saintly Jeanne d’Arc embraces her darkest ambitions in this 1/7-scale masterpiece by Aniplex. Rendered from her appearance in Fate/Grand Order, the Witch of Vengeance brandishes her Noble Phantasm, the blade La Grondement Du Haine, while inverting her once cherished banner in an act of malevolence. The crimson accents of her dark armor paired with an arrogant smile give her an aura of ruthlessness, as though she’s ready to lay conquest to your figure collection.
