Reviews of WM Brand WM6116 Non-LEGO Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba Minifigures

This is the second sets of Demon Slayer minifigures that we reviewed. There are many makers of Demon Slayer minifigures but we reckon this is the best so far. The anime is so popular that the theme song “Gurenge” was featured during Tokyo Olympic closing ceremony. Demon Slayer has grown into one of the biggest anime and manga franchises in the world. Do take not the minifigures are made without licensing from Shueisha by WM Brand in China. The photos in this reviews are courtesy of BBJ and CK. You may order the WM6116 Demon Slayer minifigures from Aliexpress.

The minifigures are packed in small plastic packet.

Summary of WM6116 Non LEGO Demon Slayer Minifigures

WM6116 Non LEGO Demon Slayer: Kimetsu No Yaiba Minifigures

This is the best non LEGO minifigures of Demon Slayer that we could get right now. WM brand had created new molding for WM6116 Demon Slayer minifigures to replicate the look in the anime. The Nichirin Katana alone are worthy for the price you paid. We like the Nezuko figure the best among the offerings. There are flaws such as blemish and misaligned printing but given the price, we could overlook them. The left arms are loose for all the figures we got. Something WM shall look into for future release. You may order the WM6116 Demon Slayer minifigures from Aliexpress.

Separately you could check out our reviews on POGO PG8291 Demon Slayer Minfigures. However we recommend WM brand over POGO.

  1. Ahhhhh! There’s a Daily Bugle as background? Did you make a review of it? Is it original or Knock off? There’s a Knockoff being selled on AE, I would love to know if it is of a good quality or not.
