Launched in 2016 Figure-rise Busts is a plastic model kit that focuses on the upper part of a character usually above the hip or chest. Each kit has multiple colors molded into one part so painting is not required. Gundam Figure-rise Busts are highly popular with Gundam hobbyists as they include a display base which can dock with a separately purchased Action Base 1 allowing the Figure-rise Bust to be attractively presented with the character’s mecha, or alternate form, on a rear pedestal.
