I have written at length about the awesome key-chains based on the Kingdom Hearts Mobile designs. I absolutely love the exaggerated features and simplified shapes. Why, if one didn’t know better from looking at the awesome designs, they may think that Kingdom Hearts wasn’t a sinking ship of a franchise!
Anyway, Square must have recognized the disproportionate demand for the key-chains as a lucrative money vacuum, so they have announced a line of figures using the same design. Damn you for your cleverness, Square. Despite having already purchased the key-chain of Cloud, and having been too afraid to open the packaging for fear of blemishes, I will now have to purchase this set too.
This is only the first volume and it includes the following cast of charcters:
If you peruse my past OMG Toys posts, you’ll notice that there was a second volume of the key-chains that this set is based of of, totaling in 10 characters. Tifa was not one of them meaning she may have bumped somebody off the list. Here are the yet unrepresented/potential characters:
- Sora (Halloween Town version)
Who do you hope makes the cut?
If you are already foaming at the mouth and fumbling for your wallet, you’re in luck. Kidnemo will be already accepting pre-orders next Wednesday with an estimated September 30th release date. The price for 9 RANDOM boxes is $74.99. This is a bit higher than the going price in yen, which translates to approximately $60 USD, but still pretty reasonable I suppose considering shipping. Honestly, the random box thing doesn’t bother me too much since I like all the characters, but I really only want Cloud. Everything after that is just gravy.
