With almost 60 successful prize exhibitions under its belt, the Prize Fair made its winter appearance in Tokyo on Feb. 7 with tons of upcoming releases from industry leaders. Inside it all was a treasure trove of figures from BANPRESTO, inspired by popular franchises like Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, My Hero Academia, Dragon Ball, One Piece, and more!
A few months into 2020, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba is still as popular as ever! Tanjirou and Nezuko continue to be immortalized in figures both cool and cute, including the Vibration Stars series and iconic chibi lineup Q posket.
One of the much anticipated figures from the series is the Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba -Vibration Stars- Tanjiro Kamado, a highly detailed prize figure.
Following the highly popular Q Posket Mini series, Tanjirou and Nezuko are also debuting in the full-sized Q Posket version!
My Hero Academia is powering through its fourth season with super characters of all sorts, represented here across several dynamic figure lines! Check out Deku, Ingenium, and Chargebolt on the attack in the Amazing Heroes series.
Also, not to be confused with the former is the Age of Heroes lineup, boasting a finely crafted Creati!
For a figure that really packs a punch, Grandista’s sturdy All Might is a must see – but don’t overlook the Zoukei Academy Special depiction of his true form either!
Welcome back the world’s greatest Saiyan with Zoukei Ekiden~Fukuro~ and Maximatic figures! As usual, the focus is on Goku, but there are definitely choices for any Dragon Ball fan, like the Dragon Ball Z Figure Ekiden showcasing the father-and-son bond between Goku and Gohan.
Other cool figures for the franchise include the Chou Senshi Retsuden collection’s fiery Vegeta and Dragon Ball Legends Collab’s beautifully colored Trunks
Expression is everything in One Piece magazine Figure~Yume no Ichimai~’s hilarious depiction of Luffy and some of the gang making a swift exit!
On the other hand, King of Artist plus DFX~The Grandline Lady~ and ~The Grandline Men~’s Wa no Kuni version figures draw attention to the striking outfits inspired by traditional Japanese style. Some upcoming figures from this line include Zoro, Boa, Chopper and Brook.
Meanwhile, the Espresto lineup emphasizes stunning finishes with top quality sculpting all round! Check out how the hair and clothes flow on Shiki Ichinose from Idolmaster Cinderella Girls, Rem from Re:Zero, Rimuru and Shuna of That Time I Got Reincarnated as a Slime.
We gave you a taste of Q posket with chibi Tanjirou and Nezuko at the beginning, but the adorableness continues over tons of franchises, like Evangelion featuring characters such as Rei, Asuka, Mari and Misato
… Disney (of course!) With your favorite tiny Princesses…
… and magical girls of all sorts! From Cardcaptor Sakura, Madoka to Ojamajo Doremi!
