Kenshin VS Shishio 25th Anniversary Edition Elite Exclusive Statue Revealed – Sells out in 6.5 Hours!
One of our most highly anticipated statues ever announced, Kenshin VS Shishio 25th Anniversary Edition Elite Exclusive Statue made its official premiere as:
The first Rurouni Kenshin statue ever created
The official 25th Anniversary Statue based on the series (includes a specially designed golden emblem)
The first Figurama Collectors statue based on the samurai genre
The first Figurama Collectors statue to include diecast metal blades
The first Figurama Collectors statue to include a complete swappable torso
The most culturally and historically researched piece ever created by Figurama Collectors, with guidance from a professional in kendo in iaido
In their first look video describing the statue, MCE called it a piece that “does not disappoint,” going on to say that “The base is very elaborate. There’s dirt in the crevices. It looks realistic. Very dynamic, very cool!”
The world’s first Made in Abyss statue reimagines Riko and Reg’s descent into the Abyss. Home to hidden Artifacts, the lush ecosystem bursts with life as moss, lichen, and lucky Flowers of Fortitude flourish amid rocky crags. Albino squirrel-like creatures observe the daring adventurers as they traverse rugged terrain and crystalline waters that ebb and flow with LED lighting.
Created as the ultimate 1/6-scale tribute to the anime’s rich world-building, the Made in Abyss Elite Diorama Statue includes an official art print and Certificate of Authenticity signed by Figurama Collectors CEO, Mr. Shanab, and 3D artist, Artem Gansior.
Figurama Collectors is proud to announce three new statues based on three of anime’s most iconic series:
Dragon Ball Super
This selection represents a diversity of genres, artistic styles, and landmarks in anime history—from timeless classics to modern favorites, from shonen to dark fantasy. To be entrusted with such monumental licenses is an honor we do not take lightly, and we strive to exceed all expectations with our final products.
We thank you, Figuramians, for your incredible support as we create these new masterpieces. We cannot wait to share more information with you in the future!

It’s coming to the end of the year, so at Figurama we’re starting to look ahead to the next year and think about what beautiful anime statues we’re going to bring to life in the way that only Figurama can. With that, involves us looking back into our past to make sure we’re keeping up the high-quality design and wow factor that we’re known for.
