Kingdom Hearts III Sora Play Arts Kai releasing January 30, 2017; box contains KH3 story teaser


Aquaberry

A new Play Arts Kai figure of Kingdom Hearts III Sora, to be released on January 30, 2017, is now available for pre-order at the North American branch of the Square Enix Store for $149.99! The figure displays Sora in his Kingdom Hearts III outfit wielding an unnamed Keyblade that was previously featured in the trailer released during E3 2015. Pictures are shown below.

A description of the figure follows:

Quote

From the latest chapter in the globally beloved KINGDOM HEARTS series by Disney and Square Enix, KINGDOM HEARTS III, the protagonist Sora now makes an appearance to the Play Arts Kai action figure line!

Accompanying the improvements in the graphic technology of the game, our designers have paid close attention to expressing the minute details in the sculptwork of Sora in his slightly more mature and grown-up figure.

The costume design is based on the look of Sora’s KINGDOM HEARTS II outfit, with the predominantly red and black color scheme of KINGDOM HEARTS 3D: DREAM DROP DISTANCE.

He is highly poseable due to the utilization of flexible materials. The Keyblade that can change form into a double crossbow – which could be called the trademark of this title — is also included as an accessory part. With all these features and more, this figure is certainly an eagerly awaited collector’s item for fans.

Figure includes display stand.

Figure Size (inches): W 3.14" x D 2" x H 8.8" tall

Release: January 30, 2017

UPDATE 2: An English foretext is provided within the packaging of the Kingdom Hearts III Sora Play Arts Kai figure. It reads as follows:

Quote

PLAY ARTS KAI ACTION FIGURE

With the world under the control of a single Master, the final struggle for true peace begins.

Through countless adventures across many worlds in his long battle against the darkness, Sora, once a little boy who only dreamed worlds beyond his island even existed, has grown up to be a dashing young man. Now he is realizing that that battle has played out exactly as Master Xehanort had planned, and the second Keyblade War, the final struggle between light and dar, looms ahead. To counter the overwhelming darkness, Sora and his friends must gather the seven guardians of light. His best friend Riku and King Mickey seek out a battle-scarred Keyblade wielder, while Sora, Donald, and Goofy set off on a journey to find "the Key to Return Hearts." Never-before-featured Disney worlds set the stage for another daring adventure to save the universe!

Chosen by the Keyblade, he is the one whose heart's light never fails to shine as a beacon of hope.

Sora, the brave hero chosen by the Keyblade, has always had a strong sense of justice. Through his many battles against darkness, he has grown and learned about the world immensely. Drawn to his light, many friends have lent him their support and granted him their powers to counter the darkness: Riku, the childhood friend he grew up with on Destiny Islands; Donald and Goofy, the two comrades with whom he has shared his adventures from the very beginning; and King Mickey, who unfailingly supports Sora with his own mighty strength. As the world becomes enveloped in another battle against darkness, the Keyblade wielder and his friends must rise up against Master Xehanort and thwart his plot to incite another Keyblade War.

UPDATE 3: The figure is now available on Amazon, with a listed release date of February 22nd, 2017, and a price of $149.99!

The Play Arts looks better than the actual game.

 

But in any case, this better come out in Europe because the Riku Play Arts STILL hasn't come out in Europe.

Seriously though, can I just gush about how freakin good this looks? The others have been good, but they really nailed the face this time around.

It's pretty cool that Sora new Keyblade is Starlight.

It hasn't been confirmed that that keyblade is Sora's new keyblade or if that's Starlight

 

OMG I WANT THIS SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO BAD!! Like, I've never truly wanted a Play Arts Kai because they are so expensive and I really didn't care that much, but DAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANG. But the thing is, I don't want to buy it and then when KH3 gets a collector's edition they put one in there as well with other things.

Oh god this is beautiful! YES, I MUST GET THIS!! Though it might be a while, I typically get my figures at a yearly convention, but they'll probably have dozens of these online so I wouldn't worry too much.

 

Also, I really love how Sora's build just looks that much more mature. I know that he's still technically supposed to be the same as KH2 Sora, but I wouldn't be surprised if he at least gained a little bit of height and maybe a tiny bit more muscle mass, he just looks at least 12% more adult than his previous form.

Yeah, it's just a featured Keyblade they used to show off the transformations in the game. In case you haven't noticed, several other play arts kai figures are packaged with various different Keyblades, that doesn't mean this is any different. It'd be kind of redundant to keep releasing the same Kingdom Key Keyblade in various Play Arts Kai II figure sets. Plus this looks WAY different than Starlight, it's like just a new Keyblade with a similar star theme. I'm betting they'll call it "Shooting Star" or something...you know, cause it can shoot stars at enemies? Kind of obvious.

So dang expensive tho ;_; Are all Play Arts figures this pricey?

Unfortunately, yes. Worse still is that they go out of production rather quickly, and only raise in price. I think Roxas goes for well over $300 now.

 

EDIT: I should add that it's the case for all Play Arts KAI figures. Regular play arts isn't nearly this bad, but they're not of as high quality.
