Toy Fair 2014: Square Enix debuts its newest figures

Square-Enix has made a lot of strides in its offerings. The Play Arts line evolved into Kai and in more directions than just the company's own game lineup. The Variant line for DC Comics, for example, has been fantastic so fa...

Now is your time to get Theatrhythm Final Fantasy figures

It feels like a long time since I first saw Square Enix’s Theatrhythm Final Fantasy figures painted. That was only in October, but now there’s no need for waiting because these mini figures are finally open for p...

Lightning Returns: FFXIII Lightning PAK gallery

Holy cow. I thought I liked the design of the Lightning Play Arts Kai from Final Fantasy XIII-2, but this one takes the cake for me. I really hope somehow I can get my hands on the Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII versio...

Variant Play Arts Kai Bahamut is now in color

First off, I'll admit I'm really torn on this now. I absolutely loved the sculpts we've covered previously, but I don't think I'm a fan of these colors... I know it's supposed to be a 'variant', but whether it's the filters o...

Size? It makes all the difference.  Hidemi Matsuzuka has tweeted that the upcoming Variant Play Arts Kai Bahamut is being remodeled with a bigger body (presumably to appeal to fans who thought the King of Dragons' propor...

Of course, if it's Square Enix and the Play Arts Kai line, that means we have to have some Final Fantasy stuff, right? There was plenty to gawk at inside Square Enix's booth, whether it's figures we've seen before like Yuffie, Warrior of Light, Red XIII, Rufus Shinra, and Lightning, but it was the big debut (at least at shows like this) for the massive Play Arts Kai Bahamut. Man, does he ever look imposing.

You might also notice some other unpainted prototypes in the gallery: the Theatrhythm Final Fantasy Statue Arts Mini figures of Sephiroth, Cloud and Tifa were also at NYCC after their Tokyo Game Show debut. I have to believe there's more in the works other than these three, but we might be waiting a while to see them.

Play Arts Kai Variant Hero of Light now in Technicolor!
by Rio McCarthy

We've seen past looks at Square-Enix's Final Fantasy Variant Play Arts Kai Hero of Light before, but now here's the fully finished real deal! Hidemi Matsuzuka shared three new photos on Facebook. I can't wait. I loved the sculpt before, but after seeing it in color I absolutely need to have it. I will actually be really sad if I can't get this for my collection.

No words on pre-order or release date, nor price, so we still have lots of things to play wait and see with. However, if those swords really do look like they're floating in midair with the actual figure? Holy moly.. I need it, like, now. I can't wait!
