WHAT IS THE BANPRESTO WORLD FIGURE COLOSSEUM?

The BANPRESTO WORLD FIGURE COLOSSEUM is an annual competitive sculpting competition, where amateur and professional sculptors from around the world enter for the chance to be crowned the BWFC champion

CHALLENGERS ACCEPTED

The contest opened to submissions from amateur and professional sculptors from around the world for a chance to compete for the 2018 title.

THE WORTHY ARE SELECTED

Of all entrants, only 18 are chosen -- 9 compete in Dragonball and 9 for One Piece as they duel for the ultimate title and grand prize.

CHARACTER SELECTION

Each contestant chooses from the approved selection of characters from which to create their figure.

WEAPONS OF CHOICE

Artists are given near-complete control over their process--from drawing the pose, to the selection of traditional clay sculpting, using digital 3D modelling tools, and the production and coloring process.

ENTER THE ARENA

The contestants take to their studios and attempt to create the ultimate interpretation of the character they have chosen. Who will win? Only time will tell.

THE JUDGES DECIDE

An expert panel of judges well-versed in the Dragon Ball and One Piece universes will grade each figure on a wide range of criteria, determining the victor.

WINNERS ANNOUNCED AT JUMP FESTA

Only one winner will rise to the top at this year's JUMP FESTA for each Dragon Ball and for One Piece, who will receive $10,000 USD in prize money, and the honor of having their figure produced by Banpresto.

Fans will have a chance to submit their votes for their favorite figure. The winner will be given the Fan Award, and $3,000 USD.
