Found a good example of what I mean about Sora's face! Here's his KH3 face, ready to take inappropriately timed selfies with everything he comes across,



Compared to his Figuarts face:



It's incredibly on point, aside from the hair being different between the two games. I'd love to see a KH3 Sora from Tamashii with that sort of quality.

And yeah it's a shame about Final Form Sora, especially when the box art clearly shows they know HOW he's supposed to wield those keyblades. I guess you could find a way to suspend them on the back of a stand, which you'll need since the only way for him to be accurate is floating.

I figured a stand would be the way to go... lmao.

Any idea of the vinyl keyblades in the "Gamestop KH3 Myster Box" fit in the hands of the SHF/Bring Arts?

The "wind-swept" head mold & Power pole set for Goku came in today from Demoniacal Fit. I was contemplating buying a Power Pole set off eBay, but then I saw this set, and the face and head mold sold it. Bonus points for the faces being interchangeable between the two.

They're awesome, especially Goofy. Donald's leg articulation is pretty basic given his size but other than that they're perfect, and the alternate faces are particularly great.

I don't think there was anything new shown at ToyFair or WonderFest actually. Or at least anything that I might have been interested. Was kinda disappointed.

As far as I know, even for the western properties, there was really nothing new shown at all. This sucks. I was hoping to see some surprise reveals as continuations of lines that haven't gotten anything in a while at the very least. No doubt Hasbro came out with a big showing but no new Digivolving Spirits, Shinkocchou Seihou Kamen Riders, I was hoping for more Sailor Moon stuff somehow, no DBZ. Are they holding back or really just had nothing going on

I guess they did have a decent showing at the last show they had but still...

The figure looks legit, but the fact that the photos donít show everything when they say itís 100% complete... Iíd ask for photos of EVERYTHING before committing.

I asked for a picture of the box a couple days ago, and never got a response.

Thank you.

My Final Form Sora came in yesterday.

The face isnt nearly as bad as it looked to me in stock photos.

The way the spare faces look though... Bit unsettling.

I have mine pre-ordered from Nippon-Yasan, just waiting for it to actually ship. But from the reviews/photos I've seen, I don't think it is wired.

From this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xp7N1rWtzUg
It looks like the cape is made up of a red and black piece of fabric sewn together on the sides but the bottom of the cape is an open seam. Seems this would actually make it easier to add wires in yourself if you really wanted to.

Also shishioh's gallery is up too: https://shishioh.info/SHF_THONR.php
You can see they used some black threading to help hold the cape up in action poses so I think definitely not wired unfortunately.

Figure looks great, but I can't stand the fabric capes. Don't get me wrong, I like that you can completely move them around, but they always look like an add on. The rest of the figure is detailed and looks amazing, but then you have this... cloth... that doesn't flow naturally.

Kinda wish they had 2 versions. One that was plastic and formed so that you can give it depth and detail and the fabric one that allows action poses and what not.

I'd much rather have articulated plastic clothes in general, but capes and long coats are something that Figuarts have always utterly sucked at. Their soft plastic/rubbery ones were decent at best, but then they go and make solid plastic capes like the ones for Zeronos Vega Form or Brave Taddle Legacy and they're just dire. The fabric they used for Wizard and ANH Darth Vader, for example, is great.

Now Thor is a disappointment, all things considered. He's a GREAT looking figure, sure, but for the price of him as an exclusive, to NOT include a wired cape or at least one other head sculpt is ridiculous. Black Widow was a retail released and had TWO alternate heads. Thor is so bare bones even for the Infinity War line that it leaves a pretty bad taste.

Yeah, I don't mind the capes though I think I may prefer cloth over plastic but if the cloth cape isn't wired than it really isn't too great. I also agree that Thor definitely should have come with an alternate head since he really doesn't need much else.

Wizard and Vader are great examples of fabric done right... even to an extent Eternal... it's just that the wire isn't as strong as I'd like it to be... but Thor is just sad.


But... HOLY CRAP! This is one of the most beautiful things I've ever seen!!!
