Fullmetal Alchemist is undoubtedly one of the most popular anime shows in history. Written in manga form by Hiromu Arakawa, the series was so popular that two different TV shows were adapted from the books, one of which improvised its own ending and the other which followed the story from the manga to a T. If you’ve been looking for the perfect gift to give a loved one who is a big fan of the characters, we’ve got a fantastic list below for, whatever the occasion.
Edward Elric Statue
This 1:8 scale statue by Kotobukiya is a great gift for anyone who loves the eponymous Fullmetal Alchemist himself, Edward Elric. Poised in a three-point landing, Ed looks out at the audience with a stoic expression, belying his young age as he considers the battle ahead. The statue stands six inches tall and is made of ABS and PVC. It is a great item for any collector’s shelf and demonstrates the action-packed side of the show.
First 4 Figures created this amazing statue of younger brother Alphonse Elric. A common theme in the show is when people mistake Al for the Fullmetal Alchemist since he is a suit of metal, (and Ed is visibly a child), which adds some comic levity to the otherwise serious show. This statue stands at nearly two feet tall, eighteen inches wide at the base, and comes in both silver and grey variants. The helmet is removable and you can see the small blood seal where Ed connected Al’s soul to the armor when their transmutation ritual went horribly wrong.
This set of Precious G.E.M. Roy Mustang and Riza Hawkeye statues were made by MadHouse, a renowned company for their high-quality products. Mustang has his signature smirk and his fingers held out, about to transmute fire out of thin air while his trusty lieutenant Hawkeye is crouched by his feet, guns at the ready to fire on any enemies in sight. Mustang stands at around eight inches while Hawkeye crouches at approximately half that height. They’re made from sturdy PVC and will look amazing on display.
Envy’s character takes on many different forms throughout the story, but his true form is one that fans will never forget. Nendroid captures the chaotic energy of Envy’s anger towards humans with this small statuette. With three face plates, your Envy can run the gamut of calm and collected to wild and full of bewilderment. In addition to the humanoid Envy statue, this collectible also comes with a small figurine of Envy’s true form so that your loved one can put them side by side and see the myriad of differences.
This adorable Funko Pop shows off Winry, one of the primary characters in Fullmetal Alchemist, in her mechanic outfit holding her favorite wrench. That wrench is almost as familiar as Winry is since it is frequently used throughout the story both to fix Ed’s automail after tough battles, upgrade it as he grows, and occasionally to hit him over the head with when he’s being incredibly dense.
This Gem Series Edward and Alphonse Elric combination statue puts the brothers together in a dynamic battle pose that is sure to delight any fan of the show. The LED lighted base produces awesome blue lightning effects as the Elrics activate their alchemical powers against an unseen enemy. The statue stands at close to a foot tall with an impressive amount of detail. Make sure to purchase batteries and put them in before your friend opens the present so that you can give them a real jolt of happiness when you turn it on.
Lieutenant Riza Hawkeye is one of the most competent characters in the entire franchise. Though lacking in alchemical powers herself, she more than makes up for it with quick thinking, a sharp tongue, and two guns that she aims with near perfection. For people who admire her skills, it’s hard not to want to cosplay as Hawkeye at conventions and get togethers. This cosplay includes all of the military uniform’s accoutrements that your friend needs to make their Hawkeye believable.
Cosplaying as a character who is famous for their metal arm is a challenging task, especially if you aren’t a blacksmith. This metal arm is made for Edward Elric cosplayers from EVA which is a hardened material that is far more breathable and lightweight than real metal. Instead of weighing down your arm with heavy, cumbersome metal pieces, this arm is custom made and requires you to send in the arm specifications to ensure the perfect fit.
When you have a friend who wants to go all out with their cosplaying, it’s hard to think of something more eyecatching than a full suit of armor. Al’s body was lost early on in the Fullmetal Alchemist narrative and his soul was tied to a suit of armor. It certainly makes it difficult for him to be sneaky, but the armor packs a mighty punch. This suit is made of EVA so your friend can move around in it, but they’ll definitely turn heads wherever they go.
When Ed and Al leave home after their failed human transmutation, they burn down the house and Ed carves the date into his pocket watch to ensure that they never forget their goals. The pocket watch is a signifier from the Amestrian military that Ed is a credentialed alchemist and grants him access to knowledge he’d never dreamed of while simultaneously putting him on a short leash. It is a bittersweet reminder to fans of the series of the burden that knowledge bestows upon those who reach for it.
No Fullmetal fan’s set is complete without the complete boxed set of the manga. For people who have only enjoyed the show(s), they’ll find Arakawa’s asides and strange humor to be an interesting part of the story. Plus, the original art of reading through the action has its own pleasures.

This adorable tee shirt shows Alphonse with his favorite animals: cats. As a giant suit of armor, Al constantly worried about cats being afraid of his large clanking limbs and went out of his way to use them as shelter for cats who were out in the rain or in dark, scary places. His hollow interior makes an excellent shelter for cats he tries to hide from his brother. This shirt depicts his love for them and is 100% cotton.
This sleek black phone case is a great gift for fans of Fullmetal alchemist. It shows the symbol from Ed’s jacket in red and is made for iPhone 12 models. The thick PVC is durable enough to absorb shockwaves if you accidentally drop your phone while creating your own transmutation circles and is water resistant for small spills. It does not come with any frontal protection though so we recommend trying not to drop your phone whenever possible.
This beautiful poster comes in a variety of sizes and will certainly stand out on any fan’s wall.

This beautiful fleece blanket measures five feet by four and a half feet and is the perfect size for sofas, chairs, or just snuggling down to rewatch some of your favorite episodes of Fullmetal Alchemist.

This adorable Edward Elric keychain is an excellent way to help a friend’s keyring stand out from the crowd so that they aren’t likely to leave it behind somewhere or lose track of it. It’s approximately two by two inches so it doesn’t overwhelm the keychain or make it difficult to keep in a pocket, but it still makes the chain easy to find and unique.
One of the best parts of the Fullmetal Alchemist manga chapters is the four panel comics that Arakawa would include for some levity in her story. They would often show Ed, Al, and other characters in chibi form discussing the events of the chapter, battling over varying opinions, arguing with the author herself, (often depicted as a cow for reasons that she never fully articulated), or engaging in other goofy shenanigans.
This gorgeous hardcover notebook would be a welcome gift for any Fullmetal Alchemist fan.

This light brown synthetic leather wallet is a great gift for Fullmetal Alchemist fans around the world.

There are a total of eleven slots for credit cards, a small pocket behind the first slap, and a place for cash in the second and third flaps.
Of the seven deadly sins on display in the franchise, Lust takes the cake for most fun cosplay. Her dress may be simple, but there is nothing simple about designing those elongated claws she uses to rip people apart. This cosplay includes her sexy dress, the long gloves, and the extended claws for a frighteningly seductive cosplay. The velvet material is made from synthetic leather and has small slits in the top and sides for ease of movement.
This unisex baseball cap is fantastic for a low key fan who still wants to show some love to their favorite anime. It has the caduceus symbol from Ed’s jacket embroidered on the hat and comes in a variety of color schemes to suit any loved one’s wardrobe. Made from cotton denim, it has an adjustable strap on the back and a curved bill to keep your face out of the sun while you run errands or hang out with friends.
Alphonse Elric had one of the first Funko Pop figurines since he was the deuteragonist of the show, but this special edition Funko Pop was far less common when it was first released. Instead of taking a battle-ready pose, this Al is cuddling two adorable kitties, one in each hand. His cute blushing face is a painful reminder of the young boy trapped inside the hulking suit of armor and how his love for cats transcends losing his body.
Small but meaningful, this golden brooch is decorated with a red glowing transmutation circle on a black background. It’s perfect for pinning on a jacket sleeve, lapel, backpack, or landyard to show how much someone appreciates the franchise and to mark the item as theirs and theirs alone.
The Rockbells are an essential part of the story of Fullmetal Alchemist, especially that of Winry Rockbell, Ed’s mechanic. She repairs and upgrades his arm and leg on a regular basis since he gets into so many fights in his quest to restore his body. She endures a lot of aggravation from Ed and Al, but at the end of the day, she’s the home they fight to protect. This shirt advertises her automail shop and invites visitors to come check it out.
For fans of the show who also enjoy playing tabletop games, this synthetic leather dice tray is a very special gift.
