Like the title says, I have some questions about trading figures. I've never bought trading figures before but I just saw that some Osomatsu-san trading figures were announced.
Here's the announcement if you wanted to see it.

Anyways, back to the questions.

1. These aren't mystery things where you don't know which figure you're getting, are they? I don't want to buy figures that I don't know which one I'm getting. I also have bad luck so I would probably be getting multiple of the same figure if it is a mystery figure thing.

2. Are these normally sold in a set? I saw here on crunchyroll, that they have Himouto! Umaru chan trading figures and those are sold in a set. I hope the Osomatsu-san figures will be in a set too.

3. Why are they called trading figures?

Ok. That's all the questions I have. I'm really excited about these figures but I don't want to waste my money if they are mystery figures.

Since they're called "Trading figures", I would assume they're random, because otherwise there would be no reason to trade them.

For me personally all the GSC trading figures I bought were in sets. So I got all the figures they showed. As far as the mystery figure it's more of a surprise than getting a double of another one you already have. They are trading figures because usually they come separately so you have to trade them to collect them all like cards. Idk if that pertains to every Good smile set, but the 4 or 5 I have, I got all the ones shown in the pictures.

I use AmiAmi mainly. They are the best IMO, but next I would say Big In Japan or Nippon-Yasan. Both great sites as well.

Hey no problem buddy. Thanks it is an awesome romance anime. I honestly never read the manga, but the anime version is worth a watch.
