Dive into TRON: Legacy with Kingdom Hearts' Sora and Riku

9:00 AM on 11.02.2012 // Jonathan Tubbs

The heroes of Kingdom Hearts 3D join the Play Arts Kai line of poseable figures as they appeared in the TRON: Legacy world.

It looks like the Shadow Heartless aren't the only things invading us for pre-orders from the Kingdom Hearts series. Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, the latest chapter about hearts and darkness and darkness and hearts (as well as brain smashing plot twists), have Sora and Riku traveling through a few new worlds. Just like previous titles, some worlds have Sora dressed to fit into the world. One of those worlds being the 2010 sequel TRON: Legacy, a world that has some of the stiffest voice acting I have ever heard in a while.

Square Enix, who felt the need to skip Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep for their Play Arts Kai line (WTF!?), have new figures of both Sora and Riku as how they appear in the Grid. Honestly, the figures seem like a lazy step for Square with the outfits not offering much in design. If anything, it looks like most of the budget was put toward the included three Keyblades for each figure. Those are what really stand out for these two. Sora includes the Kingdom Key, Dual Disc, and Ultima Weapon while Riku comes with Way to Dawn, Unbound, and End of Pain. You're also stuck with the same faces for each character. I know Sora is the happy type but it's hard to get an action pose when all he does IS smile. At least Riku looks cool like how he is in the Grid. Just don't look at his face from the side. It looks like a 30 year old actor trying to play a teenager.

I think I'm sitting this one out and waiting for Sora and Riku to appear in their standard outfits from Kingdom Hearts 3D. If you're one that has to have these, you'll find both the Play Arts Kai Sora and Riku TRON: Legacy ver. figures retailing for ¥6,800 with a scheduled release date set for May, 2013.
