Appleseed is a popular Anime/Manga from the same creator as Ghost in the Shell.
Snap-Kits are little snap together model kits (usually from Japan) that basically allow you to "build your own toy." Sometimes those toys are basically 3 3/4" scale action figures, sometimes they're little models of popular ships from TV (Star Trek) or Anime (Starblazers, Macross, etc...). They're often sold in "blind boxes" which means you don't know which character/toy you're getting until you open it up. Kind of a weird cross between action figures and "baseball card" style collectibles.
The Appleseed kits are snap-kits that allow you to build characters ( 3 3/4" figures) from the Appleseed anime.
Here's what the whole set looks like when complete: http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/p...27&mode=retail

An "appleseed kit" is an action figure made by the company HotToys (they rock most of the time) out of Hong Kong. The figures are fully articulated and need to be put together when you first buy them. They're pre-painted, so it's not really a "kit" if you really get into models, they're just a "some assembly required" toy.
one of the better fan sites out there (but no longer updated)

What they both said :p Great detailed figures with pretty decent articulation.
You should watch Appleseed (2004) Appurushîdo (2004) & Appleseed Ex Machina (2007) Ekusu makina (2007) You`ll enjoy them BOTH & get a good idea on the characters & the world they live in.Of course you may then search for the original Appleseed Appurushîdo (1988) (V) but the anime is not CGI like the two above films.
Still Applessed is GREAT.

I think they're "snap kits" because another company has the rights to produce 3.75 toys. I forget which one it is/was.

It's frustrating as hell isn't it? All someone has to do is stand it next to a Joe and take a picture, but no one seems to be able to spare the 5 seconds to do it xD
