SDCC 2012 Archive

We’ve seen a LOT of Square-Enix’s individual sets from San Diego Comic Con, including all of the Play-Arts, but of course that’s not all they make! Their two most popular franchise, Final Fantasy, was out in force with plushes and cute little minifigures! The chibis seem to be similar to Nendoroids in that you can swap their faces and they have some limited poseability… Nendo-style seems to be all the rage this day, huh? My favorite thing is definitely the big plush Tonberry. I actually already have two (Mr. and Mrs. Tonberry), but I could always use more!

We’ve looked at some of Square-Enix’s game-based Play Arts Kai, like the Arkham series, Street Fighter, Mass Effect, Metal Gear Solid, and Halo, but of course that wasn’t all they had out! We’ve got the adventuring pair of Drake from Uncharted and Lara from Tomb Raider (who, okay, aren’t officially a pair but they belong together!), Dante from Devil May Cry, the lovely ladies of FF XIII-2, Tekken fighters, Kratos, and even more, so check them all out in the gallery below!

The Play Arts Kai line seems to really excel when it comes to robot or armored characters, so of course their Halo line has been spot-on so far. For SDCC they were showing off their new Spartan Warrior and Master Chief (who I used to think was Master Chef, no joke), both of which are pending licensor approval. Of course they will most likely pass, and will be released in 2013!

We already took a look at the Batman Play Arts based on The Dark Knight Rises, but there’s more where that came from! We’ve got Batman, Robin, Catwoman, the Joker and Harley based on the Arkham City game designs, along with the black and white colorways of Batman and the Joker that they had on sale at the event. I really wish Catwoman had her top zippered up, though I understand it’s based on the game where she is busting out. If only every Catwoman was as tasteful as Anne Hathaway!

Last year at SDCC, Square-Enix announced some Street Fighter Plat Arts Kai of Cammy and Akuma to go with Ryu and Chun-Li. Of course they weren’t about to stop there, and they had Ibuki and Guile on display at this year’s San Diego Comic Con, along with black colorways of Ryu and Chun-Li along with a blue Cammy! Check them all out in the gallery and let us know what characters you’d like to see join the line next.

At the start of San Diego Comic Con, we brought you a look at the new Mass Effect Play Arts Kai with the promise of a full gallery. Well, here it is! We got to get up close and personal with the line, and I have to say Tali has totally won me over. I think the faces on the humans aren’t entirely on point, but Tali and Garrus just look amazing! I really hope they do a Wrex, because I adore him and would love to have a little one running around amidst my figures.

About a month ago, Square-Enix unveiled the sculpts for their Cowboy Bebop Plat Arts Kai. If you recall they were finished at that time, though the prototypes at San Diego Comic Con were of the unpainted variety. However, I think the faces look better here, definitely more refined and truer to the characters! These seem to be selling well, so we’ll probably get a few more characters in the line. Who would you like to see next from the Bebop universe?

Batman has always been a popular franchise, but the Nolan movies have really skyrocketed them to success in the figure world. Even companies that work almost exclusively on Japanese titles, like Square-Enix, are getting involved! They’ve done Play Arts Kai based on the Arkham Asylum/City game designs before, but now it’s time for some The Dark Knight Rises figures! I think generally faces are a weak point on action figures, but thankfully most of the designs include masks of some type so they don’t detract from the overall look. So far Bane and Batman are sculpted, with a Catwoman on the way: Bane in particular looks awesome! I’d like to get one and have him terrorize all my other figures. “I’m PVC’s reckoning!”

It’s no surprise that one of the main focuses at Sideshow’s booth was on DC, and more precisely on Batman. In fact, there were only three non-Batman DC figures there: a bust and a full statue of Superman and a very awesome Premium Format Green Lantern. While Green Lantern isn’t usually my thing, I love that base! There was also a Batman bust, but they’re really not my jam: if I had one in my house I’d constantly be thinking ‘where’s the rest of him?’
The big pieces were their 1/4 scale Batman line featuring (of course) Batman, Poison Ivy and the Joker. Batman looks amazing, and I like the sculpt. Enough to plop down $400? Possibly! The Joker is really the star of the show, but I don’t know if I could ever have anything that large and unnerving in my house. Poison Ivy is, to me, a missed opportunity: the sculpt looks great, but her face falls a little flat and I don’t know why her stomach is exposed. It kind of makes no sense, and ruins a statue that I was actually looking forward to. Check out everything after the jump!
