Orphan and undisciplined dunce, Naruto does stupid things to get the attention of the villagers around him.
Secretly, he dreams of becoming a powerful Hokage, and to be recognized as a hero by the inhabitants of his village. But Naruto has a long way to go, for in addition to his reprehensible behavior, a nine-tailed fox demon has been sealed inside him. It is Kyûbi who stirs up the fear and contempt of the villagers, who tend to confuse the host and the demon. In spite of the villagers’ attitude, Naruto trains tirelessly to become a genin. After several tries, he finally manages to receive his frontal headband from Konoha and then joins a team of ninja apprentices alongside Sakura Haruno and Sasuke Uchiha.
Naruto’s first publication dates back to September 1999 in the weekly Weekly Shōnen Jump from the publisher Shūeisha, and will last until November 2014. Naruto is a shōnen written and designed by Masashi Kishimoto, in 72 volumes.
We have the immense joy to be able to work on this monument of Japanese manga with beautiful projects of collector’s statues.
The hero, Shinra Kusakabe nicknamed “the demon” occupies a position within the “Fire Force” 8th Brigade, whose main mission is to discover the reason, physical or magical, which causes spontaneous combustions in order to stop this phenomenon. His nickname comes from his special ability to control fire and propel himself through the air.
Started in 2015, the Fire Force of Atsushi Ohkubo (father of Soul Eater), in its original version: En’en no shôbôtai, literally “Firefighters of the flames”, is a phenomenal success. In the continuity, Fire Force, as much in the manga as in the anime, subtly doses the moments of action and investigation.
We are particularly honored by the opportunity to create statues and figures around Fire Force.
Seth is part of the sorcerers community: a class of the population that is rejected because “infected”. But the sorcerers are also the only ones who can save lives by fighting the Nemesis, those creatures that fall from the sky and contaminate every living thing they touch.

To put an end to this situation, he decides to change minds by destroying the cradle of the Nemesis: the Radiant. He hopes that once destroyed, all the sorcerers will finally be able to live in harmony with the rest of humanity.
Initially published in manga in France, Radiant is simply the first French manga adapted into anime in Japan. The work of Tony Valente, Radiant is today distributed on all continents and translated into six languages. We are honored to be associated with this superb project with our figurines and statues.

It was on August 28, 1993 that the world discovered a new action series, launched by the American channel Fox Kids. Copied from the Japanese Super Sentai, which appeared in 1975 in Japan, the Power Rangers were born in the United States. There is also a great similarity with the Bioman, which appeared in 1984. The protection of the Earth is in the hands of Billy, Trini, Jason, Kimberly and Zack, four American teenagers who possess the great power of the Transmutation Network.
With more than 830 episodes in 23 different seasons over the last 24 years, the Power Rangers have become a social phenomenon and an international commercial success. Currently, you can find the Power Rangers on Nickelodeon.
We are honored to have the opportunity to bring them to life with our statues.
For 800,000 stellar cycles, Cybertronians had a golden age. During this period, Autobots and Decepticons lived in peace and colonized space creating 200 planets in miniature Cybertrons.
The situation changed radically after the Great War between Autobots and Decepticons, a war in which the race and their world were nearly annihilated. Deprived of their dying world, the Transformers had to leave their planet, which marked the beginning of the Great Exodus.
The Cybertronians are also called “Transformers” in reference to their ability to transform themselves, by reorganizing the elements of which they are composed. They thus go from a humanoid robotic mode to a completely different mode: vehicles, weapons, machines or even animals.
This worldwide franchise has seen many adaptations in movies, comic books, cartoons and video games.
We are delighted to be able to present our statues under this license.
Japan, 22nd century.
Society as we know it has totally disappeared. With the deployment of the ubiquitous Psycho-Pass system, the mental health of citizens is now monitored and quantified as a coefficient.
If it becomes high, you become a future criminal. The prevention system is set in motion: a unit of inspectors and Executives – potential criminals – then begins to hunt you down.
It is in this context that Inspector Shinya Kogami is in charge of investigating a series of suspicious deaths in a retirement home. A suspect appears, but a macabre plot emerges, involving the area reserved for senior citizens in high places in society.
Voted fourth best title of the year at the Newtype Anime Awards 2013, Psycho-Pass is a futuristic anime written by Gen Urobuchi that blends anticipation, action and reflection. With his Minority Report screenplay, the main character, Akane, struggles with the question of what justice really is, and whether it can be maintained through the use of a system that may be corrupt.
We are delighted to be able to offer you a statue of Shogo Makishima, the antagonistic character in this license that goes off the beaten track.
The Little Prince
The Little Prince
A poetic and philosophical tale, The Little Prince addresses major themes established according to a duality: visible and invisible, adult and child, love and friendship, travel and sedentary life, space and time, danger and destruction, signs and meanings, questions and answers, happiness and grief. These themes are illustrated in the form of allegories and metaphors, which can be discovered through the story of the Little Prince, from the departure of his planet to his adventures on Earth.
Written by Antoine de Saint-Exupéry during his exile in the United States, the tale was published there in 1943, then in France in 1946. The author draws on the richness of his experience and imagination to tell a story that is both dreamlike and universal. To complete his work, he decides to draw himself his character, creating a universe recognizable by all.
Today The Little Prince is the most widely read and best-known work of French literature in the world.
As a monument to French literature, we wanted to pay homage to him via a statue representing The Little Prince, accompanied by the emblematic rose from the tale.
As a young police inspector, Toshio relentlessly pursues a very clever thief. Indeed, he steals a pannel of works of art from the nose of the police after having announced in advance the time and the object of his next burglary, by depositing a card announcing it.
But the investigation is at a standstill. Quentin stalls and spends more and more time at the Cat’s Eye café run by his girlfriend and sisters.
The irony of the situation? These three sisters are just the thieves he is looking for. They multiply thefts, not out of greed but to find their father, a painter who supposedly disappeared but whose new paintings continue to be put on the market.
Tsukasa’s iconic manga Hōjō pre-published in the magazine Weekly Shōnen Jump between 1981 and 1985, we offer our vision of our big-hearted criminals with a statue featuring all three of them.
