There were seven parts to this series containing a total of 84 sculpts.

Almost all of the figures came with an accessory attached that when detached could be placed in the figures hand. They were available in vending machine capsules and contained a pamphlet specific to the series and a sticker specific to the character, both showing some pretty nice artwork of our little super deformed friends:
