  • Since Square-Enix has a lockdown on the Final Fantasy licenses when it comes to PVC, us fans have to live vicariously through garage kits. And given FF’s popularity you’d think it would get a lot, but mysteriously we rarely see them. Well, even if there were thousands I have no doubt that this kit by PKKing (who also did The Swan) would be the cream of the crop! The detail here is just… astounding. Her wings, her face, her dress! Oh, and she’s also 20 inches tall. The design is from FFXII, and in my opinion is one of the best summon designs (as it well should be, given what a pain in the butt it is to get to her!). I know there is literally zero chance that we’ll ever get a PVC version of this, but I’m going to pray to the figure gods anyway. And maybe, you know, sacrifice some stuff, because she’s worth it.

    This Final Fantasy Ultima Garage Kit Is Perfection

  • Sometimes you come across a figure that makes you stop dead in your tracks, mouth hanging open like an idiot because it’s so impossibly beautiful. That is exactly what happened when I first laid eyes on the images of Asmus Toys’ The Swan statue, sculpted by the very talented PKKing and illustrated by Po Wen. The detail here is just breathtaking, with every single feather on these ladies sculpted to perfection. And their faces! My heart is aflutter. The Swan comes in, unsurprisingly, both Black and White versions. While I usually go for the darker style I prefer the White Swan of the two of them, but both are effortlessly elegant and I need them right now. Of course they won’t be easy to get: pre-orders for April are open on Taobao and Ruten, but you’re going to need a proxy and they’re already around $200 a pop before fees and shipping. But considering the level of detail (and their 1/6 size) that hardly seems like a steep price. [UPDATE] AmiAmi has both the Black and White swans up for pre-order (¥25,500 each)! Thanks to Cloudedmind for the info.
