August 06, 20232 min read
“I was able to make it this far because everyone else was there.”
Because Figurama Collectors is a by-fans, for-fans collectibles creator, many of the statues we design are biased toward our early anime years. What did we grow up watching? What characters and battles left a crater-sized impression on us? Of course, the shonen genre frequently cropped up in our team’s discussions, and one in particular stirred our creativity, adrenaline, and memories all at once: Yu Yu Hakusho, especially the battle between Yusuke and Toguro during the Dark Tournament Arc.
And we weren’t alone in our conclusion: Since the founding of the Figurama Collectors Hub, that very fight has been suggested numerous times by Figuramians around the world. After we announced in March 2021 that we had acquired the Yu Yu Hakusho license, the interest in this fan-favorite, anime-inspired statue doubled. We couldn’t wait to share more with you!
All these milestones seem like they happened yesterday. It’s incredible that over two years later, we are here celebrating the sellout of Yusuke vs Toguro, with all 500 pieces claimed in 15 hours and 45 minutes!
A theme common to the shonen genre, and especially important in Yusuke’s growth in Yu Yu Hakusho, is how others can intensify your innate strength. It’s this very concept that allows Yusuke to finally defeat Toguro and unlock his true potential during the Dark Tournament Arc. At Figurama Collectors, we see this truth at work every day: we are only as strong as the number of Figuramians supporting us. The thousands of voices across the globe, echoing trust in our quality and cheering us onward with feedback, reactions, shares, and uploads are the energy that fuels our metaphorical Spirit Gun. It may sound trite, but we truly could not come close to this level of success without your support. Thank you for believing in us!
We would love the opportunity to meet you. If you aren’t already a member, we would like to invite you to the Figurama Collectors Hub. Here, you can share your ideas for our next statue, meet other collectors, upload images and videos of your Figurama collection, and more! We can’t wait to see you there. Please join us as we celebrate the sellout of Yusuke vs. Toguro together!
