figma Dai

Everything for Avan Strash Everything for Avan Strash

The articulation of figma Dai was specifically designed with his signature technique "Avan Strash" in mind.

The ability to recreate this ultimate technique is perfect for figma #500. Take a look at the detailed explanations of the shoulder, abdomen and hip joints below to see how these joints work together to create this iconic pose!


The base of the shoulder joint is articulated with the shoulder armor, allowing for a wide range of articulation that still maintains the detailed appearance of the character.

Additionally, the area near the chest where the shoulder joint splits from the figure itself is worked into the clothing design, making the split hardly noticeable.

Abdomen & Hips

In addition to standard articulation below the chest, forward-bending articulation has been incorporated into the abdomen as well.

This joint is essential in recreating poses like Avan Strash, where the character is holding a significant amount of power for the technique.

The figma brand was established in 2008 with the goal of perfectly incorporating both "Beauty" and "Articulation." One could say that figma Dai is a culmination of all of our work in achieving this up to 2020. With a brilliant sculpt that looks as though it jumped straight out of the animation and exceptional posability, figma Dai allows you to bring poses to life just as you imagine them.

Comment from the Sculptor for figma #500:

Sculptor: Shinji Koshinuma

After thirteen years, the figma series has finally reached figure #500!

I am Shinji Koshinuma from Max Factory, and I was in charge of the sculpting of this figure. The goal every time I work on the sculptwork for a figma is to balance both the beauty and the articulation of the figure. Of course, Dai was no different.

In order to recreate his Avan Strash pose, we came up with new swing joints for the shoulders and a new joint mechanism for the hips during the design process. With the help of digital tools, we're able to place the parts on the figure precisely while ensuring the joints would fit on the figure.

I believe we succeeded in our goal to make figma 500 a figure truly worth celebrating. There is thought put into every corner of the figure, so be sure to check it out for your self!

(We also worked really hard on the effect parts so don't miss those either!)
