I am not entirely sure when, but recently the official Japanese Square Enix online shop updated its layout and introduced some new items. Among them is the first set of Final Fantasy XIII trading arts figures which includes:
Each figure is about 4-5 inches tall and one order of 6 random boxes will run you 6,000 yen, or around $60 USD. If you take a look at the close-up photos of the figures linked above you can see that they are extremely detailed. My only complaint is that the transparency of each character’s hair is not captured very well. Using a solid paint with a bit of shine to it just doesn’t get the same result. Still, not a bad set, and much more affordable than going after all the Play Arts figures, depending on how lucky you are (or aren’t)! I wonder who will be in the next set?
