Artist Support Item 1/1 Hand Model/R (White)
Witness the launch of the new ARTIST SUPPORT ITEM series!
Having reached 4800% of the initial goal and raised over 145 million yen on the Japanese crowdfunding platform Makuake, this highly anticipated project has finally made its way to Kotobukiya’s standard product lineup!
Takahiro Kagami is an animator known for his beautiful hand designs that have been featured in many famous anime, such as the popular Yu-Gi-Oh! Duel Monsters TV series.
A breathtakingly powerful yet delicate model has been created based on the proportions of his hand designs!
This highly articulated model is made possible only under the thorough supervision of Takahiro Kagami and the craftsmanship of Kotobukiya’s leading sculptor, Tsukuru Shirahige.
These two top creators of extremely beautiful hand designs have teamed up to offer an unprecedented item for current and future artists.
The model’s most important feature is its realistic range of articulation, which is almost equivalent to that of an actual human hand!
Furthermore, the model is equipped with a lock mechanism that prevents it from moving in directions that are impossible for the human hand, making it easy for anyone to simulate natural poses.
Not to mention, the left hand version that is now in development is sure to greatly expand possibilities for expressions and creativity!
This hand model is a must-have for all creators and illustrators, both professionals and amateurs alike.

Artist Support Item
Terms of Pre-Order
Pre-orders require us to commit to an order with a specific manufacturer which we are then liable for. If you place a pre-order, the deposit required to place a pre-order is non-refundable, should you choose to cancel. The only exceptions to this are:
- The item is cancelled by manufacturer due to shortage in supply.
- The price quoted on your order is going to change by more than 10% when the item arrives.
ETA’s can vary and are not guaranteed arrival date. We list the date given by manufacturer, but delays can and do happen. We cannot cancel your pre-order, even if delays are substantial, please take this into account when ordering.
Balance of pre-orders must be settled within 30 days of the product coming into stock. Failure to settle within this period may mean you lose your deposit and pre-ordered item.
Prices quoted can be subject to change as items are only billed by manufacturers when they ship to us. We do everything we can to give you an accurate buy price, but pre-orders that are far away can vary in price if exchange rate varies from now until then.
Postage fees can also vary depending on the size of the product, type of shipping and number of boxes required. We suggest you pre-order each item individually and choose virtual warehouse handling.
Many items are produced in limited quantities. Pre-Ordering looks to ensure that you get one of the limited numbers produced.
What happens when I pre-order?
Upon receiving your pre-order, we will place an order with the appropriate distributor for your item. The distributor in turn places the order with the manufacturer who then ensure that the item is shipped to the distributor when it’s ready. This means we are liable for the order from that point which is why we charge you a deposit to ensure you’re serious on purchasing the item.
Why are some pre-order arrival dates so far away?
A number of manufacturers produce items in batches according to demand. The manufacturing process takes considerable time as the items are often hand painted.
What if I change my mind and want to cancel?
Should you wish to cancel your pre-order you can do so, but you will lose either the deposit you paid, or if you paid in full, 10% of the expected guide price of the item. The reason for this is we will have placed an order for your item and we are liable for it.
Is the price you list the final price I will pay?
Most of the time, the guide price will be correct. But as we buy most pre-orders in from abroad, the price can vary due to exchange rate variance. When the item is ready to ship from the distributor, we will inform you of any price changes. If prices have risen by over 10%, you have the right to cancel order if you so wish and we will return your deposit.
Are pre-orders guaranteed to arrive?
Most of the time they are pretty reliable. However, sometimes the manufacturer can run into production or licensing problems and occasionally items are cancelled either temporarily or permanently. If this happens we will refund your deposit.
What happens when my pre-order comes into stock?
When your item comes into stock you have 30 days to pay the remaining amount due or risk losing your pre-order and deposit.
