I want that Shiva bike.
Plans for acquisition must be put together...
For those woundering about Odin robot mode.
I might pick up Bahamut or Alexander should they be made.
I just got Lightning, Snow, and Vanille.
It's so impressive to have large, human action figures that don't suck. I literally can't wait for Shiva.
Are these along the same heights as Figmas?
No, I have one Play Art, and it's definitely taller than my Figma.
Muuuuuuuch taller. The Play Arts Kai figures are around 9-10 inches tall. The original Play arts figures range between 7-8 inches, which is still much taller than figmas.
So far, the only thing I dislike is the wrist joint.
It is rotational, but not hinged. This makes any "fists up to fight!" poses look a bit silly, especially for Snow.
Everything else is exceptional, especially the way they manage clothing with the movable and hinged vinyl pieces.
I would've been all over these if they were scaled to figma sized figures.
Yeah, the wrist thing is a bummer, but overall I love the Lightning figure.
Isn't the clothing detail just incredible?
It most certainly is.
Love the torso and back articulation as well. It reminds me of some EVA figures and models I have.
Blargh, just caved. The characters are growing on me quite a bit as I play through the game, so just snagged Series 1 off of eBay (since Snow and Lightning seem to be sold out near everywhere else), and pre-ordered the ludicrously expensive Shiva and Odin sets.
Odin's going to be ridiculously huge...
I got a Lightning, but that's about all I wanted from the line.
I'd love a Shiva, but can't justify that much money. (plus, I really only like how one of them looks in non-gestalt mode). Odin also rocks, but again--200 bucks?
All of the others are impractical to make as toys, if not impossible. Bahamut MAY be able to be done, with a lot of detachable/swappable parts for the wings.
Anyone know some good pics of a final production Lightning figure? The prototype looked to be the worst of the group (mainly the face) which was a big disappointment. (Snow and Sazh looked the best to me, of the prototypes)
Pictures as promised:
In the comic shop in the mall I go to, I saw some FFXIII Play Arts. In my mind, I was questioning how the hell does Lightning's pocket-sword thing folded... And worked, since it had a trigger.
the Snow and Shiva gestalt looks great.
but its not affordable for me. i really really want it ...
i want it too.. but the price...
Also, despite what BBTS shows, the set does not include Snow.
