    I like figurines but it’s always a hit-or-miss thing with Play Arts. The hair and faces of some of their figures are meh, like Serah’s.

  • Captain Levi

    Want.

  • Adam

    Red XIII you will be mine.

  • Mark Lengod

    Those articulations of the new PlayArts are kinda weird and messes with their body proportion, imo. I prefer the older ones, although they’re less flexible and the modelling/paiting is inferior.

    Still getting Barret and Red, tho, probably.

    • Martian Wong

      One thing I cant get over Play Arts figures are the joints…it looks like two pieces of plastic glued together…

      • harmonyworld

        because it is two pieces of plastic glues together….it’s an action figure…

        • Martian Wong

          Actually it is not two pieces glued together, they are being held by a joint. Have you seen a Figma? The joint doesnt look like that.

          • DriftSlave

            Yes but unlike figma’s, PAK’s are on a much larger scale and can take a decent amount of wear on their joints. Things like Figmas and SH Figurarts are kinda fragile in comparison. So you do kinda get what you payfor….though I would agree that PAK’s are overpriced.

  • Freakmasta

    Action figures are so pricey these days… I still remember when Play Arts were like $20-30. Now they’re full on statue prices.

  • subsamuel01

    These are mad expensive, but they look really nice.

  • Lack of Cid is distressing.

    • SirStrongBeard

      At least we got Barret, that leaves Cid as the only party member not to have received a play arts figure. Well, him and Cait Sith, but I like to pretend that guy just didn’t exist. Hopefully a Cid will be on the way.

  • Harvey Tejada Loto

    still waiting for this game to remake

    • Steven Higgins

      Not happening. Ever

      • Japanese companies are allergic to money, if capcom or square decided to remake their older games for new gen they’d be swimming in cash

      • Ahtma

        No, it will happen, but only if Square-Enix is ever in completely hot water and on the unstoppable brink of bankruptcy. A remake of Final Fantasy VII is their one-time-use get-out-of-jail-free card.

    • Sora96

      Ah, cannot wait for Toriyama & Kitase to remake it.

  • Zombie de Rafa
  • Nice Boat Quatro

    Holy cow they are well detailed

  • Chogokin

    Over 10,000 yen? Square Enix seems to be getting a bit proud over their overpriced revoltechs.

    • quasadra

      well, there has been a price hike to every thing from plamo to action figure to PVC statue recently. beside, Play Arts has always been more on the expensive side, they are bigger than revoltech after all.

  • lolcatz6657

    Sounds expensive. Mr T looks detailed

  • Justin Graham

    I want that Tifa figure.

  • Based Ignacio Puppo

    I prefer the original designs, but the AC redesigns make for great action figures, hot damn!

  • Yorai Dragon

    TIFAAAA <3

  • Vash bane

    those look awesome :D

  • Soltrigger

    Huh… So that’s what it looks like when all the swords are in their sheaths. Cool.

  • -Misaki-

    April 2015, good, I am poor now and can save money till then.

  • 하세요

    Aw shit, fucking Barret. That may just have to be in my collection.

    • JustThisOne

      It even comes with his robot haaaaaaaaand!

  • keithmaxx

    That image with just Tifa’s head surprised me… Oh the horror!

  • Shady Shariest

    Dat Xlion :3

  • Go2hell66

    oh god tifa’s leg/head o_o

  • SirStrongBeard

    These figures look great, but I vastly prefer the original designs… especially in regards to Barret. They really screwed him up in AC with those hideous corn rows, mesh shirt, and puffy vest.

  • Bunzi

    This is the most spotlight Red’s had in a decade.

  • ShawnOtakuSomething

    Barret and Red X I been waiting for a figure

  • Frank Bautista

    Really like they are doing Red XIII and Barret, but damn, too many fuckin’ Cloud and Tifa figures. When are we going to get figures of lines that AREN’T post-FFVII? I’d kill for a Play Arts Kai version of Celes or Edge.

    • Mark Lengod

      After that Warrior of Light and Dragoon (that is basically Kain) PlayArts, I’m kinda hopeful for Cecil, Terra, and some others.

    About the actual movie:

    I was watching it a couple days ago and I still think it’s awesome. I always really liked it, but I get other’s dislike or disdain for it. When I first saw it I was young and in angst-mode, so the crazy fights really appealed to me. But now I’m older and more mature, I can admit now that the fights are a little too ridiculous and I don’t care too much for the flying around and defying of gravity. They could have at least supplied an explanation. And Nomura’s justification for it? “We didn’t wanna worry about what people thought, we just wanted to make it look cool.” So they only cared about making ti look cool. huh.

    Despite that, I think the story of it actually does have some depth to it. it also caused some controversy with Cloud being perceived as “emo” but I never thought of it that way. He is not emo in the movie because for one thing, people don’t know what emo means anymore and for another, emo =/= depressed, scared, sad, confused, self-doubting, etc. Normal human emotions aren’t “emo.” So I couldn’t disagree with that viewpoint more.

    To further elaborate on this, also on this recent viewing I noticed and realized a new detail. When starting to fight Sephiroth at the end of the movie, Tifa talks about how the party all had such strength by the end of their journey in FF VII, and the 2 intervening years they kinda lost that sense of strength, but Cloud has gotten it back, and so that’s why it’s his fight, and he can beat Sephiroth on his own, which he does.

    Included on the DVD is a special feature making of documentary, and Nomura explains it further, by admitting that people thought Cloud would be happy after FF VII: but the way he saw it, after the losses and grief, the long struggle Cloud has experienced, basically since the end of Crisis Core, has come to an end and he is now facing a peaceful life, and that scares him because he is afraid of losing everything again, fearing he can’t protect anyone because he was right there when Aerith died. He is afraid of that happening again. So then geostigma just amplifies it and he shuts everyone out, basically waiting for death. Cloud has always been (mentally) weak so this all makes sense. It is not because he is emo, or emo without reason, or that they’re butchering his character, people are just misunderstanding it. AC is right in line with cloud’s character and I think it’s a great followup to FF VII, despite the stupid Superman stunts throughout.

    Just some thoughts on the movie lol
