The first segment of the Final Fantasy series began when the four Heroes of Light appeared in the land of Coneria. Now, SAE has chosen one of them — the “Warrior with Blue Armor” — to exemplify the vision of their new Variant Play Arts Kai series, wherein characters will be rendered true to their original form, but with a very distinct Square Enix aesthetic edge. Designed to make the figurines dynamically fresh, we think the Variant line hits the nail on the proverbial head.
But watch your own (head, that is), as the Hero of Light is poised for battle with more than one mythical blade at his fingertips! He’s 8 inches tall and beautifully painted, too, of course, and comes with accessory parts such as a cloth cape with internal wires for posing, a sword, sword effect pieces, an effect piece display stand, a shield, exchangeable hands and a figure display stand.
