Fullmetal Alchemist Art Rinkya 'Nothing's perfect, the world's not perfect. But it's there for us, trying the best it can; that's what makes it so damn beautiful.'

The story of two brother’s journey to find the philosophers stone in order to restore their bodies after they were injured attempting to restore their mother with alchemy is by all accounts a masterpiece and an industry classic. This tale - composed and written by Hiromu Arakawa - ran between August 2001 and June 2010, giving fans a tale worth remembering. So it’s understandable that we have a wide array of figures to choose from - these are the Fullmetal Alchemist figures we have chosen as our favorites.
