Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children’s Tifa And FFXII’s Fran Getting New Figures

By Sato . May 19, 2014 . 1:02pm


Square Enix merchandise manager Hidemi Matsuzaka previously showed off a prototype figure of Final Fantasy XV protagonist Noctis. More recently, he tweeted a first look at a couple figures of two popular Final Fantasy heroines.

The above is a preview of Tifa’s Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children figure.



And here’s a look at the Viera warrior Fran from Final Fantasy XII.


Matsuzaka or Play Arts Kai have yet to reveal a release date for the two figures, but we’ll likely be hearing something about it in the near future.

    Do a Asura figure or a Goku RIGHT NOW

  • Kaetsu

    Damn look at dat a…dvent children figure!

  • Stephen Mc Devitt

    For a moment I thought it was Lightning. I’m genuinely surprised see Final Fantasy merchandise that ISN’T about Lightning.

  • efholic

    I hate how they are Figmas.

    • Pythia Brixham

      I know what you mean. It’s nice that you can put figmas in a variety of poses, but I only buy figures to look pretty. So even if I could put them in poses, I would probably put them in one pose and never touch them again unless it is to move them somewhere… Plus I think the hinges look ugly.

    • Chogokin

      These aren’t figmas.

        They are more like 8-9in revoltechs, which is slightly worse

  • malek86

    That outfit looks a bit different from AC Tifa, I think?

    • Slickyslacker

      Yeah, she looks more…well garbed.

  • gamebabble

    EGAD TOOK THEM LONG ENOUGH! I mean you realize this is actually the FIRST Fran figure, right? You’d think they would be churning those out but…no. FFXII merch is weirdly rare, ESPECIALLY of Fran!

    The only thing CLOSE to a Fran figure is the SD one from Fortune Street.

    • God

      Are you kidding me? They made a bunny girl, one of the U.S.A.’s top fetishes, and they didn’t make merchandise? That’s like making a… well, there is simply no analogy to descrive how stupid it is.

      • riceisnice

        Maybe they genuinely admired Fran for her strength, confidence, and intelligence.

  • Surgeon of Death

    Look at Fran……… DAT ASS!

  • EinMugenTenshin

    Are these in colors, or is this what they are? (Tina looks a bit… Aeris… in those pictures (dead).

    • $1392518

      Prototypes. They are still tinkering with them
      We will see them in color once we get closer to release

  • oresamawasugoi

    Really? Action figures? I still hope for a 1/8 scale PVC Figure.

    • Freakmasta

      Even if they are action figures, Play Arts have gone up in quality. It’s to the point where each costs around $60-70. Like the DC Superhero Play Arts. They are really high in detail. I sometimes forget they’re action figures.

      • new_tradition

        I have two PAKs, but I only get them into position once and then pretty much never touched them again.

        They really are that purty to just look at :3

  • Makoto Yuki

    I definitely saw something on Tifa’s. Yep I’m sure

    • Valtiel Ikari

      Angry Joe much?
      anyway, can I join into the song?

      • Rohan Kishibe

        Please do!

        • Valtiel Ikari


  • DrakeClawfang

    Seems they’ve gone up a cupsize or two from their last appearances.

  • Valtiel Ikari

    Dat Fran and Tifa!
    I want both of them right know!

  • Somebodyissilent

    Sold! Take my money. I don’t care how you do it, just get me my figures now!

  • Kroz

    always been a boob man….therefor the Tifa figure is the best

  • My pingas was not ready for this!

    • LustEnvy

      You have multiple?

      • ShawnOtakuSomething

        don’t you?

  • Nitraion

    Boobs and ass…. o-o

    • ShawnOtakuSomething

      Fran Ass is Legend…

  • There is no way I’m not not getting Fran. She’s my favorite FFXII Character =^_^=

  • new_tradition

    Dang, those look really great. Tifa especially is one of my top girl crushes. Would love to have a PAK of her, and this new prototype looks gorgeous *_*

  • PersonaSpace

    The Play Arts series is nice, but I’d love a nice static PVC figure to display.

  • Tom

    Better late than never.

    I really like these grayish prototype figures. Sometimes they look better this way than the colored version. I appreciate the shoulder joints, they don’t look like big ugly balls on these figures.

    I’m looking forward to the Noctis figure.

  • They look pretty good for Play arts Kai,

    Usually I avoid Play arts Kai as they’re usually really bad

  • LustEnvy

    Tifa, my favorite character in existence. I MUST have this. I would’ve preffered a PVC or Resin statue though.

  • Sora96

    How about a digital version of Advent Children Complete?

  • James Williams

    Fran is a day one buy, iv’e waited so long for a figure of her!

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    DAWWW I wanted Pointy bits Tifa but this is good too…*drool*

    Fran….*ping* darn this armor I’m wearing
