It always makes me delighted when Square acknowledges its 8-bit and 16-bit era Final Fantasy titles. That's why I've been eagerly awaiting the announcement of pre-orders on the next volume of the Dissidia: Final Fantasy Trading Arts figures from Square Enix Products.
This set focuses mostly on the characters we don't commonly see get figures or screen time for that matter. Volume 2 features Firion from Final Fantasy II, Paladin Cecil from Final Fantasy IV, Bartz from Final Fantasy V, and the one that had me squee for hours on end, Terra from Final Fantasy VI. Huh? Oh... yeah.... and there's also Sephiroth from Final Fantasy VII. Not like you haven't seen him enough times. But he does mark the first villain for this series so one can only hope for more villains in volume 3. I would kill for Kefka. I would also love to see Golbez or his distant cousin twice removed Ex-Death.
A carton of 6 pieces will run you a retail price of 5,280 yen and can now be pre-ordered at Hobby Search and AmiAmi. The set will be available in February. Also, if you missed out on volume 1, a re-release of the set is available for the same price at Hobby Search. This set will be available in February, too.
Who else is looking forward to this set and the possibilities of volume 3?
