2 Statues Shipped to Collectors

Trigun Vash 20th Anniversary Elite Exclusive Statue

“Pictures won’t do justice to this wonderful piece. I just LOVE him. Worth every dollar I paid. Worth every week and month I waited. It’s just stunning. When I placed the last ‘explosion’ and stepped back a few steps, it gave me goosebumps. You nailed it. You made a real tribute to the anime.”

Tokyo Ghoul Kaneki VS Yamori Elite Fandom Statue

“I just want to say how beautiful and epic this statue is. I still find myself gazing at it in awe before heading off to work and after getting home from work. This was my first piece by Figurama and it most certainly won’t be the last.”

    Recognition and Growth

    Statue Awards

    It’s the time of the year for statue awards, and Figurama Collectors’ Trigun Vash 20th Anniversary Elite Exclusive Statue has already received two from critics:

    Best Statue of the Year 2019 (MCE)

    “Out of everything I saw this past year, the one that really stood out to me as being the top in every category is Figurama Collectors Trigun Vash Statue. This is the second time in a year that I’m rating them at the top, and they do extremely fantastic work in trying to honor the characters that they create statues for. They live up to their name. I love this statue because it captures Vash in the midst of battle. There’s lots of dynamic action going on—guns blazing, bullets ricocheting off the walls, going through his cloak… Paint application is done perfectly. There is no bleeding. It doesn’t feel like it’s going to lean or anything like that. And it just works out to be an overall fantastic piece. Highly recommended.”

    Best Statue of the Year 2019 (Statue Fanatic)

    “My favorite piece is this beast of a statue: Trigun Vash the Stampede 20th Anniversary Edition from Figurama Collectors. I think Figurama nailed it from head to toe with this particular piece. The sculpt, the painting—everything about it, in my opinion, is nearly flawless. I’m very proud to own this piece and my statue of the year for 2019.”
