Fight figure describes a

Fight figure describes a specific format of Japanese vinyl figure loosely based on the style of classic action figures like MoTU and Ninja Turtles with their exaggerated proportions and size. JP fight figures are between five and six inches tall and feature stylized proportions with big torsos and heads, long fighty arms, and short legs. Real x Head, Secret Base, Gargamel, Yamazakura, and others subscribe to this format. Fight figs are fun because they are kinda doofy looking, pose great in groups, and specifically fit in your hand and feel great. They are bigger than a mini, more portable than a standard kaiju, and a ton of fun.
