GENERAL ZOD

From Square Enix comes a Play Arts figure based on Michael Shannon’s part in the upcoming Man of Steel: ZOD.

A former Kryptonian soldier, ZOD is after revenge and willing to destroy whatever and whoever stands in his way. Part of the Kai Series, this awesome 8-inch figure comes with an alternate unmasked head, plus a couple accessories to add even more versatility to the highly-detailed costume.

COMMANDER SHEPARD

Commander Shepard cuts a striking figure in this new addition to the Mass Effect 3 collection.

Imported from Japan, Square Enix’s Play Arts figure of Commander Shepard comes with her trusty N7 Valiant Sniper Rifle, N7 Hurricane SMG, and the OMNIBLADE. She’s one of the most beautifully-detailed figures released in the collection.

Kai Series Street Fighter : GUILE

That outfit! That hair! It could only be Street Fighter’s GUILE, the latest addition to Play Arts’ Street Fighter collection and part of the Kai Series of super-articulated figures. Take a look:

At 8 inches tall, this Guile figure makes an awesome display piece or an addition to your Super Street Fighter IV diorama (we assume you’re working on one). He comes with some alternate hands and an alternate head and features some awesome game-accurate detail– including the super-sweet American flag tattoo.

AGENT 47 Kai Series Figure

A Japanese import, this 9-inch figure of Hitman’s Agent 47 is a stunning recreation of the assassin. Wearing his signature black suit and deep red tie, he also boasts a ton of articulation and enough weaponry to ensure that his target is eliminated no matter what they bring tot he party.

Packaged in a deluxe window box, this is one figure you’ve gotta see up-close to believe.

HALO – Gold Spartan

A decade ago, Bungie Software and Microsoft teamed up to bring gamers the next generation of first-person shooters – Halo: Combat Evolved for the nascent Xbox system. Humanity’s super soldier, Master Chief, battled the genocidal alien Covenant on a remarkable artifact in the depths of space, and a video game legend was born. Square Enix brings the popular character Master Chief to life as part of their new Halo Play Arts ~Kai~ action figure line.

A PREVIEWS Exclusive and a Square Enix import, this GOLD, 9-inch Spartan figure is one that’s sure to please HALO fans. The sculpt is taken directly from the game’s CGI files, so you can expect to see some pretty amazing details on this thing– not that you’d expect anything else from the Kai series.

MERYL SILVERBURGH

MERYL SILVERBURGH is the latest addition to Play Arts’ METAL GEAR SOLID line.

Imported from Japan! 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. Metal Gear Solid has been one of Konami’s best-selling games over the last fifteen years, the creation of acclaimed creator Hideo Kojima. Collectors can get their hands on this dynamic action figure of Solid Snake’s ally Meryl Silverburgh (10″ tall) from the original game and Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. Window box packaging.

GOD OF WAR’S KRATOS by PLAY ARTS

A new Kratos figure is on its way this year! It’s a stunning rendering of the God of War protagonist, outdoing previous figures by bringing a level of detail that definitely hasn’t been seen outside of the game’s own designs. Being part of the Play Arts Kai series means that he also comes with a number of additional weapons and accessories to help you better display this epic anti-hero.

Uncharted’s NATHAN DRAKE Kai Series Figure

The motion capture technology used in the Uncharted games created characters who looked, moved and felt like real people. To capture that kind of natural flow, the folks at Play Arts had to go all-out in their creation of a Kai Series NATHAN DRAKE.

Standing about 8 inches tall, Nate features a ton of brilliant articulation and some incredible detail– just look at the stubble and the folds on both shirt and pants. It’s hard not to be impressed at the work that’s gone into the figure–throw in some awesome accessories, though, and this thing is probably one of the best video game poseables you’re gonna find out there. If you’re a fan of the series and can handle having Drake go solo–sand Sully, Elena, Chloe or Charlie, then this is definitely one you should be adding to your collection!
