Kat, Carter and Jorge are the latest figures from Play Arts’ KAI SERIES of HALO:REACH Figures. The Kai lines are Play Arts’ deluxe collection, boasting extra high-detail design, a ton of great accessories and a larger-than-usual size of about 8 inches. As per usual, you can grab these guys as individual figures or as a complete set of three. They join the first series, which included Jun-A266, Emily and, of course, Noble Six him or herself.
Now, some Halo fans weren’t thrilled by the ending of Halo:Reach (and we’ll spare you the spoilers here!) and if you were among them, then you might like this Machinima video…
HALO REACH gave gamers a brand new chapter in the Halo mythology, allowing them to explore the days before Master Chief and see the world of the game as it once was. The story and the characters spoke to the heart of the player as well as entertaining them, intricate and inspiring on many levels.
It’s therefore no surprise that the above figures are a cut above the rest, getting more than just the usual treatment and joining the Play Arts collection under the Kai series banner. The Kai series, if you are unfamiliar, is “an improved version of [the] popular Play Arts action figures, with a greater attention to detail, more points of articulation, and additional parts for greater customization.”
Shipping in January, you’ll find Noble Six, Jun-A266 and Emile as the first wave of Kai figures and they’re available for pre-order now, as individual items or in a pack of all three. They join the complete Halo Reach Collection over at CmdStore.com!
Those are three new HALO: REACH figures available from the amazing designers and sculptors at Play Arts, a division of Square Enix, whom you might know as the company behind the incredible Final Fantasy collection. They specialise in beautiful figures as it is, but the Kai series takes even their amazing work a step further. From their Press Kit:
Square Enix’s Play Arts ~Kai~ figures are an improved version of their popular Play Arts action figure series. With a larger scale, a greater attention to detail, more articulation points, and additional parts, these are their finest action figure yet.
Featuring Jun-A266, Emile and Noble Six, the first series of Kai Halo figures stands about 8-inches tall and comes decked out with all the weaponry you would expect from a trio of soldiers. They’re currently available as pre-orders and will be shipping out in February 2011!
