Really? I lol'ed at it.

I kinda want to get the Sephiroth one. I'm not a huge FF fan (not because I don't like it, but because I haven't played very many- I've liked all the ones I've played so far), but I'm digging that single wing. Hard.

Gwah! Those look wonderful! And they're only 25$ each! Big Sword, Blue Wing, or Pumpkin Head; so many to choose from!

Dang, I have absolutely zero interest in FF and KH, and I STILL want these figures. Wings on bishies = awesomeness, and NMB4Xmas anything = awesomeness. Beautiful toys.

I've wanted these ever since I saw the first pics of the figurines... Well, minus Sora. A neat design, yes, but not a figure I want. I blame the lack of wings >_>

...and who else noticed that Cloud is progressively shrinking? 0_o

Looks like Krauser doesn't get any victims this time. Cool Laughing

I'm glad to see these are such great figures. All of the FF figures I have are just wonderful, (and the price for them is unbeatable) But I purchased Axel from the first KH line and he's not quite of the same quality. He has interchangeable hands so he can hold his chakrams or whatever, but they're stuck in so tightly I broke one of them when I was trying to change them and I had to super glue his hands on. Sad It's too bad to hear that the Sora figure has the same biggest frustration as Axel, that his weapon won't stay in his hand.

Square-Enix is, by my opinion, one of the best toy manufacturers out there. Their painting never fails to impress.

I've been collecting these Play Arts action figures, but it took 2 weeks before Square Enix Products USA even shipped me my Aeris & Tifa action figures the one time I bought directly from them.

That being said, I'd only suggest them if you can't find certain (non-bootlegged) products anywhere else.

But regardless, these Play Arts action figures are awesome!

If they could throw in the FF7 cloud on motorcycle i'd be sold. Probably one of my favourite minigames of all time

They have that too. I can't find it right now, but it's about $90 and can be imported from Japan. It's an AWESOME figure.

Very nice. Toys and figures that have large asymetrical features tend to have bad balance so a stand is needed most of the time so its nice to hear that's not an issue with these guys.

Rob Bricken, with this article you stole my heart...lol. Like you, I absolutely adore FFVII. I also found this article entertaining as well as informative. Those toys are awesome and definitely look like they may be worth getting, especially Cloud and Sephiroth.

Those are pretty cool. I'm a big FF7 fan but I've never played Kingdom Hearts. Still, I'm rather tempted to buy these.

I couldn't have said it better myself! I do enjoy FF, but regardless... "wings on bishies = awesomeness", oh so true! I'm really tempted to treat myself. Beside, the design looks great... as well as the coloring.
