New FF7 BringArts figures (6") of Tifa and Aerith:

Even more ridiculously priced at ¥13,200. Especially for not having any real accessories or effect parts.

I will probably get one of each. Yes I know that I’m part of the problem.

I hope they get to Yuffie, Vincent, Cid, Red XIII and Cait Sith.

That looks nice. It's closer now to the original game design. :good: 

But like the last Bring Arts Cloud release that I skipped, I'll probably skip these too. I got tired of PlayArts only producing a handful of characters first and not complete the whole cast in one line. If they complete it this time around, good for most collectors. And I also don't find their current price reasonable anymore. Oh well. :(

These are way over priced for six inch figures. They do look good. It would definitely be more than a thousand dollars for me to get the characters that I want. I do think these look great and really look like the game designs, but even though they look great, it’s not like they look very complicated. They definitely don’t look like they’re worth more than $60

That leaves Vincent, Cid, Yuffie and Cait Sith.

I hope they release Vincent and Yuffie so I can have at least my go to party in 6" scale.

These all look good but they're soooooo damn expensive, more-so considering the tremendous lack of accessories and the size, except Cloud of course, which comes with that absolutely useless garbage-ready NFT nonsense. I remember when Play Arts were this price, and much bigger, now Play Arts prices rival Hot Toys, frakking crazy.

I remember when they were twice as big and only$20 now they’re half the size and a hundred bucks more

Are NFTs still a thing? I thought they are practically useless at the moment?

I have to give it to Square Enix. Unlike Bandai they manage to release the whole team:

The rest of the cast looks great, and I'm still loving that they went with the art style from the original game and not the Remake series. But damn, they are crazy pricey for what they are, small and light on accessories, Square's Play Arts stuff has just gotten out-of-line expensive.

Wow. After almost 20 years, they finally able to complete the cast in Bring Arts form? I started this Play Arts journey when they released Final Fantasy VII during the early 2000's with a number of characters left out such as Cid and Caith Sith. And then they announced the Kai line. Same thing. Released only a few characters. And then we enter the Remake line, where I basically stop on planning on completing the line aside from just getting Cloud with Daytona and/or Fenrir.

Seeing that they plan on completing the characters in Bring Arts size, as much as I love FFVII and love to have the whole cast in figure form, I can't bring myself now due to its price. And my interest is waning down now. So thank you Square-Enix.

I had a Cait Sith figure, but can’t remember if it was from the original game line or one of the other ff7 lines they had going.

gotta agree about the prices. I may get Vincent and Cid, but the whole line is gonna be way way too expensive

Yes. They all look nice. All of them. :wub:

But, not individual Y12000 nice. That's total of Y120000. (US$804 in today's currency exchange.) :unsure:

Don’t forget the shipping. Just about $1000.00 for a set of six inch figures. It’s tough because even with picking and choosing, these individually are still too expensive. They look great though, and I’m trying to tell myself that I don’t need any of them because I got most of them for a fraction of the price and twice the size

I know. Had to draw a line somewhere, right?

Square's merch was always annoyingly overpriced, but never absurd. But I stopped paying attention altogether after they started skimping and jacking up prices on products that were ALREADY barebones and overpriced. I remember when this Bring Arts series was supposed to be their "budget" line, but now they cost nearly as much as their more premium lines while still using all the same budget materials/processes/etc.

Budget line, I remember when the larger figures were $20

Honestly, Cloud with the bike are more worth the price than cloud on his own 

I think so. But man, seeing the amount of the set, it's atleast Y7000-Y10000 shy away from the Play Arts Kai Hardy Daytona a few years ago. This is based as far as the Yen pricing goes. And it's why I didn't bother getting the Bring Arts FFVII even though this time around they're finally making all the characters. :(

Half the size for four times the price

Correct. I feel bad now that finally here are all the characters that I really want from a video game that I love, but it's now too expensive for me to justify its size.

It’s even worse for me, since I would have loved this scale over the large ones. I have a lot of the movie and some remakes versions, but those were barely over twenty bucks. These are nearly a hundred, but have all the characters the way I would have wanted them. It really breaks my heart that I can’t get them all or even a few.

What breaks my heart though is that I wanted to look the other way when I saw these since I'm not going to get it, but then still wanted to share the announcement to the community. How ironic. :unsure: 

Square really did took advantage of it since they know it's their famous FF franchise.
