Filipino celebrity Alden Richards is not just a Genshin Impact whale, but a big spender too when it comes to Demon Slayer figures. The actor revealed his massive collection of figures dedicated to Ufotable’s phenomenal anime series on his Instagram stories.

Alden Richards’ Demon Slayer figure collection shows how big of an anime fan he is
Alden shocked the Philippine anime community with his most recent Instagram story, which showed a selfie of him in a background full of his very own resin statues from the anime series Demon Slayer (Kimetsu no Yaiba).
The collection actually spans two gigantic cabinets, as seen from photos by local toy store Toy Shop Manila. Alden owns around 20 pieces of 1/6 scale resin statues, with the cheapest statue valued at US$287 (PH₱15,000).
The most expensive figure in the display is LX Studios’ Rengoku Kyoujurou vs Akaza resin, which costs US$1,050 (roughly PH₱55,000). This special resin statue uses LED lighting, reliving one of the most epic fights in the franchise featuring the Demon Slayer Corps’ Rengoku Kyoujurou and the demon named Akaza.
