Final Fantasy Mechanical Arts Mini Figures Previews!!!


I first got a look at these little gems at San Diego Comic Con in July. My jaw dropped and I was in awe! Square Enix is releasing an entire set of vehicles from the Final Fantasy Universe including these two motorcyles. Although they are highly detailed and painted, they are pretty small - only around 4 to 5 inches long. Mini figures are white hot these days for a number of reasons including a lower price point, collectability and space considerations (you can get a lot of mini figures on your desk). I think Square Enix is doing the right thing by going in this direction with this series. It competes very favorably to the popular Takumi Damashi series from Bandai.

I've got a thing for toy motorcycles. Generally speaking, if it's a Japanese toy involving a motorcyle, i'm usually buying it. Check out my Toy Motorcyle Gallery. I'm not even into Final Fantasy, but I sure dig the bikes! I have the larger Fenrir cycle which is very cool, but I believe this will be the first toy featuring Kadaj's motorcycle.









Check out this video showing off one of the bike battles from the admitedly awesome movie Final Fantasy Advent Children. I have to say, even if you're not into Final Fantasy (like me), this is a great movie with unbelievable animation, graphics and action. Highly recommended.
