About Us

Derive Figurine company

Derive Figurine is an e-commerce company that opened its doors on the web on September 29, 2017. The company was created by Alexandre Mistral and we are a team of enthusiasts working in the field for many years. We are collectors of merchandising products and this allows us to offer you the best possible products of the worlds video games, movies and series, anime and manga and comics. All items come from official European distributors. There are no counterfeit products (bootleg) on ​​the site Derive Figurine.

The story actually began in 2010 with the creation of the company DeriveManga.com. This company, following its success, closed its doors in 2011 because the activity was becoming too important for Alexandre to be managed at the same time as the main job as manager of the Tabac Presse Taulignan.

Since then, several years have passed and other projects have been built, including the recognized video news website ActuGaming.net (AG). Our teams are working hand in hand and in view of the economic problems of monetizing a media site, the decision was made to create DeriveFigurine.com. This allows us to continue our journey in geek news by exercising a profession that has already fascinated us for a very long time and that allows us to provide economic support to ActuGaming. Of course, Derive Figurine is a priority and we are committed to bringing you the best possible services.

Mev Gardenia, a brand and a mascot

Mev Gardenia belongs to Derive Figurine, this is a fictional character being at the same time a mascot and a true brand offering its merchandising products. Mev Gardenia was created by Daniel Lam, a Canadian illustrator who worked on video games like Sonic Rivals and Monster Lab.

The very first Mev (anime and  manga version) was originally created for Derive Manga. Derive Figurine is the new site and since its offering more universes by adding video games, movies and series and comics, it was natural to create new Mev versions for each universe.

Regarding her name, Gardenia is the flower she wears in her hair while Mev is a pretty cute first name. But that's not all, when you change the order of letters like an anagram, we get Derive Manga, the starting point for this adventure that we share today with you. Derive Figurine is now the company that continues to make Mev Gardenia live and to be able to share our passion with you.
