This Final Fantasy Figure Excites Me More Than The Game

After the whole Final Fantasy XIII hullabaloo, a FF break was in order. The world didn't get that. It got Final Fantasy XIII-2.

Perhaps, FFXIII-2 is fantastic — I haven't played it yet, so I wouldn't know. There's some much hanging over the title, like Final Fantasy's good name and the crushing disappointment of FFXIII.

This Lightning FFXIII-2 figure on the other hand. It has nothing to live up to. Square Enix makes nice Play Arts figurines, but they're not overhyped and shoved down your throat. If anything, they're tasteful and understated. As is this posable Lightning.

I may like Final Fantasy XIII-2. I may not. I do like this figure.

Goes on sale later this year, and its list price is around $US65.

    I thought the internet got over the "Final Fantasy XIII really sucked" phase. Guess not. It's either really liked or really hated.

      Pretty much like any other JRPG ever released in the West...

      I gave up on any decent reporting from Brian ages ago.

      Even though I really liked FFXIII this all I expected as soon as I saw the title.

    FFXIII was only a crushing disappointment if you had massively overblown expectations.

      TBH for me i could have probably finished it if it wasnt for vanille. she took JRPG moaning/groaning/exclaiming to new heights. wanted to punch her in the throat.
