Final Fantasy XIII Play Arts Kai action figures are already out. These figures are based on one of the most if not the highest anticipated Role Playing Game (RPG) this year, 2010. These Play Arts -Kai- action figures have the same feel of previous action figures of past games and lines, however they’re an improvement over the former as they have more articulations, more detail and more accessories (or so I hope).
The game was released on March 9, 2010 on both the Xbox 360 and Playstation 3. The first line of figures for Final Fantasy XIII are Lightning, Snow Villiers and Oerba Dia Vanille and they will be priced at around $45 or so. These are in stock and available. There is yet another line consisting of 4 figures: Fang, Hope, Lightning and Sazh. These will be released April 2010, and 2 more additional characters, Odin and Shiva will be later released, Odin in July and Shiva is yet to be announced. You can see all of their pics below, if confused just come back here and read the last sentences again. These action figures will be ranging from 6 to 9 inches but they may vary a bit among themselves, with the exceptions noted of Odin and Shiva, as Odin can morph into a horse and Shiva into a bike.
If you haven’t yet, get your copy of Final Fantasy XIII from Amazon, as well as the action figures. Amazon does not have the action figures (yet). Play-Asia is selling them (shipping is reasonably cheap).
