I saw this website on someone's Facebook page.

I don't know if this Chinese garage kit company is legit or not. Notice that the html says .jp.html so I don't know if these products are from Japan, original or recasted.

The webpage takes some time to load.

No word on where they're from, how to buy them, and how much unless one emails them.

Those figures look fantastic. I'm not sure about their back story but I'd be very interested in buying some, thanks for sharing this with us.

I am not so sure about this now because take a look at these images:

And now take a look at the actual products on the table...

See the joints on the legs, hips, and elbows? I'm assuming that these are action figures, not resin garage kits. 1/18 is a popular scale for action figures.

So does Planetgreenvalley make both action figures AND resin figures, or just action figures? One won't really know until one asks or sees the actual product for sale.

The 3D images are so awesome that I may have been fooled into thinking that they're resin figures. My apologies if I am wrong and that they are indeed action figures.

They're both. The joints are discreet enough that a little judicious filling would hide all the seams. But you'd be able to make unique dynamic poses.
