Figures.com has posted a series of pictures of various Anime related models and statues that were displayed at the 2001 San Diego Comic Con.

Koto displayed a Vampire Hunter D model that will ship this November for $149.99.

Also featuring a Trigun related offering was Kaiyodo (Toy arm of Xebec) with their Trigun Capsule Toys, which is a set of busts featuring Vash, Wolfwood, Meryl, The Nebraska Family and Kuroneko (the cat), that are to be sold together. Kaiyodo also displayed a fourth figure to their "Toy Tribe" series, an unpainted model of Meryl Strife, which will retail for $25 (the Toy Tribe series already includes unpainted models of Vash, Wolfwood and Monev the Gale).

Kaiyodo also had on display a full range of Evangelion toys.Lastly, Kaiyodo displayed a Spike Spiegel action figure from Cowboy Bebop. This figure, which sells for approximately US$30 in Japan, will go for a mere $10.99 in the United States. Kaiyodo merchandise is distributed in the United States by Diamond.

Toycom displayed a highly articulate 12 inch Vash the Stampede Model that even has wires built into the jacket allowing it to be molder into shape. Also from Toycom was a series of classic Anime robots, featuring Mazinger, Great Mazinger, Dragon, and Ghetter 1.

Bandai had on display their Anime Collector line of toys that includes models from The Big O, Escaflowne, Pilot Candidate, Cowboy Bebop and Outlaw Star. These collectible figures range from 4.5" tall to 7" tall and will retail for a suggested $14.99 each when they go on sale this fall.

Also on display from Bandai was a full range of Gundam figures.

Dark Horse showed off a beautiful sculpted model of Rally and May from Gunsmith Cats, as well as some not quite as nice and somewhat less accurate action figures based of the characters from Keniichi Sonada's Manga.

Toynami showed off a number of Robotech based models, from very tall garage kits to Super Deformed Keychains. Robotech.com has more information on the models.
