Toys of the Week: Final Fantasy VII Play Arts

When Square Enix makes actions figures of its beloved video games, it doesn’t fuck around (well, it used to fuck around, but not any longer). Square’s Play Arts figures are always beautifully sculpted and well-articulated, a good thing since each figure will run you $20-25. This most recent set is of Final Fantasy VII’s Cloud Strife, Tifa Lockhart (with the suspenders) and Aerith Gainsborough, the only video game character who died for your sins. The figures are based on the original 1996 game’s designs, and word is there will be another set with Yuffie, Vincent and Red XIII before the end of the year (Cid and Barret always gets screwed).
