An unarticulated painted Figma prototype of the show's most iconic Colossal Titan antagonist was also on hand, sporting its skinless body and wonky proportions. Decidedly cuter prototypes for GSC's chibi-style Nendoroid AoT toys were on display too, including Mikasa, a mockup of Eren and the same Colossal Titan.
