5 Most Valuable, Unique and Hard-to-Get Anime Figures
While it is now super-easy to get one’s hands on most anime figures, some are rare gems. If you ever come across any of the anime figures presented on our list, you may rightly consider yourself a very lucky person.
Without wasting too much time and killing you slowly with curiosity, we present the five most expensive and unique collectible anime figures to get from Japan:
- Life-Size Neon Genesis Evangelion Figures
If you are a fan of Neon Genesis Evangelion, you have to plan your budget thoroughly since getting any of the Neon Genesis Evangelion figures may break the bank. With each item retailing at around 5000 USD, these life-size figures feature Japanese television and entertainment characters such as Asuka, Rei and Kaworu. Well, you have to splash out a hefty sum for one figure, to say nothing of the shipping expenses. And what if you want to have them all?
2. Vintage Life-Size Astro Boy
The Astro Boy anime figure stands as the most expensive on our list. The character has been around for a while now, serving as inspiration for other anime series, such as Mega Man. This anime figure is one of the most expensive creations a collector may ever wish to get. It costs a staggering US$25,000 - and the shipping fees are yet to be added! You can use your Parcl account to check how much it will cost for this life-size, world’s most expensive anime figure to be delivered to your overseas address.
3. HY2M 1/12 RX-78-2 GUNDAM FIGURE
The Gundam replica by Bandai is 5 feet tall and is one of Japan’s coolest and most expensive creations to date. Of course, given the size, this robot statue cannot fit in the centre of your living room. Even for collectors, this is more than they can chew. The best bet is to buy the Gundam figure if you are going to open up a museum and install it in a huge outdoor hall. The model is also not everyone’s friend when it comes to price.
4. Victorique de Blois Porcelain Doll
Inspired by the Victorian Era fashion, this figurine is a copy of the female lead character in Gosick. Everything about the figurine is 1800s-themed, which makes it even more desirable. The doll retails at about US$800-1000 - which won’t break the bank compared to the cost of the other items on this list.
5. Life-Size Anime Figures of Levi and Eren
These figures are popular with Attack on Titan fans, and they are stunning. If you're in the market for something close to reality, you’ll love these items since they stand at 5’7” tall. They became popular after being gifted to the winners of a Japan lottery as limited-edition awards, and many overseas anime fans love and want them. If any of these have piqued your interest, go ahead and look for a Japanese forwarder.
