Action Figure Insider » New Chainsaw Man Figures Round Out Bandai’s Impressive Anime Heroes Lineup

Latest Anime Heroes Line Brings Fan-Favorite IP to Collectors!

Irvine, Calif – (November 20, 2023) – Bandai Namco Toys & Collectibles America is revving up and expanding its popular Anime Heroes action figure line with the addition of Chainsaw Man!

The Chainsaw Man figure stands at 6.5 inches tall and has exceptional detail that makes for an uncanny resemblance to the anime – most notably with the iconic transformation of his body parts into chainsaws. Collectors will also appreciate the 20 points of articulation that create endless pose and display options.

The anime scene is always changing, Bandai takes pride in having its finger on the pulse of popularity by working directly with licensors and content creators as well as production houses like MAPPA (Chainsaw Man) allowing the company to build a strong consumer following due to the quality of their anime.

With the great success of characters from other popular anime shows already released under the Anime Heroes brand, Bandai was excited to expand the lineup to include Chainsaw Man. The fact that the titular character is a complex, non-traditional hero brings even greater variety to the Anime Heroes line-up and rounds out the type of stories being adapted into collectibles.

“Anime is constantly evolving and changing, and we want to ensure we are offering the best to our customers,” says Daisuke Zama, Senior Vice President, Brand Toy Department. “Chainsaw Man allows us to connect with anime fans of all types, no matter their preferred IP.”

Chainsaw Man figures are available now for pre-order on Amazon $21.99.

Bandai’s Anime Heroes line has grown to feature the most popular IPs including: BLEACH, Jujutsu Kaisen, One Piece and Naruto. With the addition of Chainsaw Man, Bandai is continuing to take ownership of the anime space at retail in a way that is accessible and affordable to the growing, casual anime fanbase.

Daniel Pickett

AFi founder and Editor-In-Chief Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since.

In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features.

He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced.

In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website

Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s
“Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on Bloomberg News,,, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post,,,, Boing-Boing,, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official
Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many
others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows.

But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
