For many anime fans, collecting figures is also one of their hobbies and there are those who own an incredibly high value collection.
The anime industry earns an average of about $19 billion annually. A significant portion of this is made possible by character model collectors. Although for many people, spending hundreds or even millions of dong to buy a display model with anime characters is quite pointless. However, they will have to think again if they consider the value of the models below.
6. Megumi Kato
Megumi Kato is one of the main characters of the Saekano: How to Raise a Boring Girlfriend anime, and is also one of the most expensive anime figures available today. The reason Megumi Kato’s model has such a high value lies in the number of models. Aniplex has only made 10 figures of this character in life-like dimensions. Because there are only 10 models in the world, the value of each model is increasingly pushed up and the current recorded value of this model has reached 19,000 USD, equivalent to about 447 million VND. .
5. Astro Boy
This is the only Astro Boy model in the world with a full-size life, which is classified as an extremely rare collector’s item in the community of model collectors with a price of about $25,000, equivalent to about 589. million dong. The model is designed in the shape of Astro Boy, but the face part has not been fully assembled. The LED system on the model’s eyes is still in good working order and has become a part of Japanese anime history.
4. Momo Belia Deviluke
Momo Belia Deviluke is a character from the popular anime series To LOVE-Ru. The company Max Factory took care of creating the 1:1 scale figure for Momo. Just like Aniplex, Max Factory only produces 10 models worldwide. The limited quantity and accurate simulation size make the cost for fans to own this Momo up to more than 636 million VND or about 27,000 USD.
