    Would anyone here be interested in a brand new MISB Halo 2 Anniversary Chief figure? Been looking to sell it, wanted to see if anyone here wanted it without the hassle of eBay. Just PM me and we can work something out, thanks!

    Really REALLY wishing I hadn't waited to grab Play Arts Kai Zack Fair now. Makes no sense why I waited given my love for the character and comparison to competing priorities. If anybody can recommend a good place to grab him, it'd be appreciated.

    I kinda wish I grabbed him too to display next to PAK Crisis Core Aerith Gainsborough (great figure if pricey). I figured that we wouldn't get a FFVII Remake version of PAK Aerith so fast, and I got her mostly to display with Remake Cloud and Barrett. But SE had revealed way back when that new versions of Tifa and Aerith (whose Remake outfit is indeed different) were in the pipeline.

    My suggestion is maybe check out Mandarake's web site to see if they have him.

    Oh, and my credit card also got charged today for the premium edition of the FFVII Remake video game that includes PAK Cloud and his Hardy Daytona motorcycle. Looking forward to getting him next month in April!

    Received it about 10 days ago but only got the chance to mess with it this weekend. Awesomely gorgeous (and hefty) bike but the actual figure isn't too different at all from the 2017 version, though I understand that the upcoming 2020 PAK FF7 Remake Cloud Strife is a new mold with better face and hair sculpts, improved arm sculpting, and other painted details to better match his in-game appearance.

    I sort of wish the bike was available separately but I also know it would probably be expensive and I wouldn't buy it anyways. Haha. Tempted to get the Remake Cloud and Tifa but current PAK prices are a bit too much for me. They look nice though.

    I've decided that I'd rather have the PAK Remake Cloud than the MAFEX Hush Batman & Superman figures which (currently) ship the same month, so I've put in a cancellation request at Amiami. If they grant it, I'll order Cloud & Tifa (even though she's scheduled for October.)


    aaaaaannnnd that was quick & painless. So long, Superman & Batman. Hello Cloud, Tifa & Trading Art minifigure 5-pack!

    I wish the Hardy Daytona bike had included an LED light up feature in the front headlight and rear taillight similar to the latest Advent Children version of Fenrir with Cloud Strife.

    I'd imagine that Square Enix would eventually re-release the FF7R Hardy Daytona with lights (there is certainly space on the bike for LEDs, wires, and a battery compartment given the size of it if they were so inclined), and most likely include the 2020 updated PAK mold of Cloud to boot.

    I was a huge Cloud fan and Tifa (I always made sure I got her for the Saucer date) and with FF7 being my 3rd fav but since my first 2 favs 6&4 dont get the love 7 does from Play Arts this is what I have for FF PA (no kai, no bring arts, these the original Play arts)

    And then I have what I call my black and red sword group

    Man...I would love some FFVII figures. That game is probably in my top 5 favorites of all time. Are there any decent figures out there in 6” scale?

    Are there KOs of some of the PAKs? I was kind of wanting to buy a Dissidia Terra from ebay, but I would want a legit one.

    i believe Cloud is in the 6-7in Bring Arts line, no motorcycle though like in the PA and PAK lines, but i think his game and KH2 ver. is in the Bring Arts

    FINAL FANTASY® BRING ARTS™ Cloud Strife Another Form Variant [ACTION FIGURE]

    Cloud is 7in and i think that's so he scales with the Kingdom Hearts figs that this form is from, so maybe to big. I have always wanted to get the Sora Forms just never got around to grabbing them bcuz of the hoops you had to jump through to get all 6 ver.(7 now).

    yes there are, if the price looks to good to be true and they're shipping from China than most likely it's a KO, heck i didn't even know they made a Terra, FF6 is my favorite FF game of all time, need HD remakes of that and FF4 Complete with no gameplay changes, regular traditional turn based RPG goodness

    That's awesome.
    I preordered the FF7R PAK Tifa, and I'm toying with the idea of going back and hunting down the FF7 and AC versions as well. Because Tifa is the best. :)

    If they had made Play Art Kais of all of the FF6 cast, I would buy all of them. And I'm not a real big fan of PAKs, either. That might cost around 2 grand, haha.

    FF6 is my fave as well.

    If I end up with the Terra PAK, I'd like to put together a magitek armor for her.

    How do you like that Another Form Cloud?

    On a seperate note do the 'Kai' figures go in this thread as well? If they do (an older picture that I posted in another thread a couple of years back):

    Yeah, this thread is for all the Square Enix action figures. Bring Arts as well. Wouldn't say no to Trading Arts either, but I've not seen many people show those off if they have them.

    Being a huge KH fan, I like it as his best look, it has that small piece of insanity that Cloud keeps in the back of his head. The one wing has always been kinda weird to me but it's the whole opposite of Sephiroth thing

    I've been seeing the video make the rounds again on social media: it's a PAK-scaled magnetically-assembled Fusion Sword for Cloud from Advent Children.
    Anyone know where to get them these days?

    Looking to get a PAK-scaled representation of Cloud's sword (either Buster of Fusion, doesn't matter) for PAK FF7R Tifa later this year to lean on, but I'm not buying PAK FF7R Cloud (yet, anyways). In a worst case scenario I'll scratch-build one, but if I can pick one up; it would simplify my life a ton. :)

    I have PAK Dissidia Terra Branford and she's a wonderful figure. Just beautifully detailed. I gave her some fire effects from S.H. Figuarts Doctor Strange so it looks like she's casting a Firaga spell.

    20200422_111604_copy_983x1748.jpg

    Yeah, I wish Square Enix would make more figures from Final Fantasy III/VI in the PAK line, although I think we'd be limited to only those characters who appeared in the Dissidia fighting games. So that just leaves us with Kefka Palazzo (the colors alone on him would be awesome) and Locke Cole.

    A Celes Chere or Shadow (with his dog Interceptor) would be awesome but I'm not holding out too much hope for them.
