PAK Cloud 55

Final Fantasy VII. Cloud Strife. Play Arts Kai. Perfection. As soon as I saw this, knew I had to have it. I am a big Final Fantasy fan, pretty much just FFVII too. I long for the days of countless hours wasted world exploring, not being online, just battling and leveling up through 3 discs of greatness all by my lonesome. It was an epic story and as much as Square wants to move the FF series forward, they can’t, because this stuff is just too awesome.

Advent Children was also a worthy sequel to the game, ahead of it’s time IMO and still holds up 10 years later. Square originally did Advent Children figures in their Play Arts (no Kai) line early in their figure career. They were good, but the last 8 years or so has made them look a bit dated. Thankfully they are revisiting now that they’ve hulked up with Kai, and Cloud is the perfect upgrade to the original offering. Check out over 80 shots of him showing off all his different swords and moves after the break, courtesy of site sponsor Entertainment Earth!

Mezco Raiden TRU 15

The Toyark is wrapping up it’s Mezco Mortal Kombat X wave 1 galleries today with Raiden! Raiden is the third of the wave along with Sub-Zero and Scorpion. Even though this is Mortal Kombat X, these three are OG and hit that nostalgia cord well. Their looks are updated yet still touch those classic notes. Raiden in particular is very well done, the paint detailing is stellar. The alternate clear lighting hands are a great touch, and of course the removable traditional hat. We also got a hold of the TRU exclusive Glow in the Dark Raiden, which premiered at SDCC 2015. Same figure, no paint, glows in the dark. Shots of him are in here as well. As with all of these, the pics speak louder than words, so check out almost 50 shots of the two Raidens after the break courtesy of Big Bad Toy Store!
