Merchandise

One reason why Saint Seiya was never forgotten was because of its merchandise. Since the Original Era[1985-1992], the title "Saint Seiya" has been used on various products related to the manga/anime. With fans from all around the world pushing the Revival[1995-2002] of the manga/anime, the title "Saint Seiya" has become the name of the franchise. With the dawn of the New Era[2002-Present], the franchise have spawned many products, toys, video games, and various merchandise not just solely for the Japanese market.

For the full action and deluxe ones, you only need to built it and the Saint figure can move its parts. (In the Revival Era, reproductions of most of these models were released.) There were 32 of them:
