That last bit of light is always the hardest to snuff out. Time for a look at Square Enix’s 1/12 scale line today, Bring Arts. This is the second Final Fantasy VII themed release, Sephiroth. Cloud was the first. Both are from the Kingdom Hearts video games and feature alternate looks from that story line. The most noticeable being the single angel wings. Sephiroth features a sleek look very faithful to the game with solid paint, especially the wing. The hair is long and flowing, with a ball jointed piece underneath the main locks to allow for some posing. The articulation is limited – both the elbows and knees get the equivalent of single joint 90 degree bends. The ab cut is under his jacket so that’s also limited. The hair, while true to the character, also limits neck movement. Overall sculpt and paint is great though.
I grabbed these guys for two reasons – one because I dig FFVII and always like to collect things from that series, and two, wanted to check out Bring Arts. This is Square Enix’s jump into the 1/12 scale. Play Arts Kai is fantastic but expensive. Grabbing a full team line up for a deep roster requires a small business loan. So I was hoping that Bring Arts would shine and allow them to get us the FFVII roster in a smaller, and cheaper format. After two pieces, I don’t think they are there yet. Articulation is limited, and the price on these are high compared to some other non-limited Asian company offerings like Tamashii and Mafex. You get less for the same price or more than similar offerings. If they upped the articulation to full SHF / Mafex levels on their best days, and dropped that price 20%, it would be the perfect offering for team building at high quality 1/12 scale.
That being said, I am happy with both Cloud and Sephiroth here, they look good on the shelves as supplemental pieces in relatively simple poses. If that is your goal, they are worth it.
