Figma figures are a popular anime merchandise and collectible item created by the Japanese animation house, Max Factory. The figures are highly detailed, with intricate designs that can capture the essence of a character or scene from an anime. The scale of the figures varies depending on the series they represent.
1:12 Scale – This is the most common scale for Figma figures. This scale is generally used for characters and scenes from popular shonen (young boys’ manga) series such as Naruto, Bleach, and One Piece. These figures are typically around five to six inches tall and are typically highly detailed.
1:6 Scale – This scale is slightly larger than 1:12, usually around eight to nine inches tall. These figures generally represent characters from more mature anime such as Neon Genesis Evangelion and Hellsing. The details on these figures tend to be even more intricate than those of 1:12 scale.
1:4 Scale – The largest of all Figma scales, 1:4 scale figma figures are usually around twelve to thirteen inches tall. These highly detailed pieces are more expensive than other Figma scales due to their size and complexity. They represent characters from some of Japan’s most popular series such as Cowboy Bebop, Fullmetal Alchemist, and Death Note.
Figma figures come in three different scales; 1:12 which is the most common size for shonen series characters, 1:6 which is slightly larger for mature series characters and 1:4 which is the largest size for some of Japan’s most popular series characters. Each figure has its own level of detail depending on its size.
