Trading Arts Mini are a a line of collectible fixed-pose figurines produced by Square Enix of Final Fantasy and other Square Enix properties and licenses. Figurines are released as a series of sets or "Volumes". They are made in PVC and averaged in height at around 2.36” (60mm).
In Japan, the figurines are sold randomly in "blind-box" packaging. In the US/International releases, the figurines are normally sold in complete box sets. These releases, many times, will not contain all the figurines released in Japan. Pricing was set at ¥350 JPY per toy or $39 USD per factory sealed box of nine randomly packaged figures.
The line was, in essence, the same as the original Trading Arts, only in much smaller sizes.

In 2012, the Trading Arts -Kai- Mini line was introduced. These figures were packaged separately and were customizable with included props such as weapons, hands and faces. Made of PVC, characters were depicted in a "super-deformed" style and averaged in height at around 4” (62mm).

In 2015, the label was "relaunched", restarting the Volumes at 1. In the new line, characters were depicted in a "chibi-like" design style first used in the character illustrations for Pictlogica Final Fantasy. Figures were sold in single blind boxes for ¥? JPY or in lots of six blind boxes for ¥4,620 JP (approx. $43 USD), with no guarantee of a complete set of characters. Complete sets were available in the US for $39.99 USD.
