Final Fantasy XIV Omega Figure

It’s not every day that something you might buy to adorn your shelves could also adorn your digital self, but Final Fantasy XIV aims to make it one of those days. A new “Meister-quality” figurine of series boss Omega is now up for pre-order on the Square Enix Store. To sweeten the deal, the item comes with a code redeemable for an in-game emote, “Ballroom Etiquette – Omega Simulations.”

The official Final Fantasy XIV Twitter account shared a preview of the emote via a post:

Omega is a recurring Final Fantasy boss character, first appearing in Final Fantasy V, and then again throughout the series, usually as a challenging optional boss fight. The Final Fantasy XIV incarnation of Omega is a dimension-hopping quadrupedal superweapon, first mentioned during the A Realm Reborn scenario, and appearing for the first time in the Heavensward expansion. Omega then plays a major role in the raids of the Stormblood expansion, as well as making appearances in Shadowbringers.

The Meister-quality figurine itself depicts Omega’s alternative form, appearing as two humanoids, one presenting as male and the other as female. The humanoids stand atop Omega’s quadrupedal form, wielding a sword and staff and surrounded by the translucent, bar-shaped magical effects. The figurine stands 6.3″ tall including the base.

Being a Meister-quality Final Fantasy XIV figurine, its price tag is also on the higher side. Square Enix is charging $229.99 for the figure, which will be released in January 2021. As such, it would be inadvisable to order the thing if all one wants is the emote. Those that would rather have a more affordable figure can consider the upcoming Y’shtola Bring Arts action figure, which releases in November.

Final Fantasy XIV is available on PC, PS4, and Xbox One, and is free to try through the Heavensward expansion. Check out Siliconera’s playtest of its latest patch, Reflections in Crystal.
