What is S.H.Figuarts?
A new standard in action figures representing the state of the art Tamashii Nation design technology. Designed to realistically mimic the full range of motion of the human body, the series name is a contraction of the concepts of “Simple Style” and “Heroic Action.” Standing roughly 5.5 inch tall, the highly posable S.H.Figuarts figures are designed to feel like little treasures.

What is “GUNPLA”?
Gundam + Plastic Model = GUNPLA
GUNPLA is the common name for plastic models of Mobile Suits, Mobile Armor, and other robots that appear in the iconic Mobile Suit Gundam anime series.
Over 445 million GUNPLA models have been sold in the past 40 years since the first “1/144 Gundam” model was released in 1980. GUNPLA models are now manufactured in Japan with planning, product development and production taking place at the BANDAI Hobby Center, located in “Hobby City Shizuoka,” in order to maintain high quality and accurately meet market demand while also ensuring uniformity in design.
