    I had Cloud preordered, and ended up canceling it back a ways to be upset when I saw stock sell out and prices of third parties enter that gouging arena.

    I was happy to wait and find one for the retail of $120, and I can’t express how happy I am.

    Cloud is articulate enough for the price range. His shoulders, elbows, and wrists bend. His ankles bend, as well as the front portion of his foot(where his toes would be) also bends. His head turns, his waist turns somewhat, and he does come with an extra arm. One is cloaked in black, the other is bare with the red arm bad to symbolize his geostigma.

    You have 3 sets of hands to interchange. One is open, another is a fist, the third is partially open, these are the ones you want to use to hold the swords. The hands seem to be so closed to hold a sword, you have to pull them apart, they bend enough to get a sword in the grip, although it’s kind of a pain in the butt to make it happen.

    He has room for 4 swords in his back sheathes, and he can hold two. You will have one extra sword left over after this, depending on the look you want him to have.

    The swords are all pretty cool, and large compared to his body size. My biggest problem with so many weapons is how to pose him. Right now I have him as he is in the pictures with some of my other statues/figures.

    Overall I’m very pleased with Cloud. I’ve had some of the other Play Arts FF figures, and this is by far the best so far that I’ve owned. Looks great, great semblance, and more options in posing than I know what to do with. Highly recommended for ANY Final Fantasy VII fan.

    I have never been into buying figures until i got a Halo Master Chief Figure through a gift exchange at work. I took it upon myself to buy a couple of different figures to populate my desk at work. Then one day looking at amazon i came across Cloud. It wasn’t out yet at the time i saw it but i knew i wanted it because Cloud happens to be my favorite swordsman of all time and from the pic’s being advertised on Amazon the Cloud looked miles above the rest that i came across. When it finally arrived in the mail i was so impressed at the quality and the detail. Cloud has been sitting on my work desk now for almost a year and he is no less impressive than when i first took him out of the box and put him on the provided stand. I pose him in different positions from time to time and his ligaments and pieces are intact and still very tight. I get compliments on him all the time and its a cool surprise that some unexpected people in the building at work know who he is.( I chalk that up to how precisely detailed he is ) Best figure i own so far. I would feel confident in knowing i will most likely get a quality product if i decided to buy another type of figure from Play Arts. Great Job!

    This is easily one of the best figures in the Play Arts Kai line. I’ll start off by saying that, thankfully, the scale of this figure with the others in the new FFVII release is perfect, a relief after the scale issues some other Play Arts releases have suffered. This whole release has been great in that way, making all the figures look right on the shelf next to each other.

    Secondly, the quality of this figure is definitely up to par. There’s a huge number of poses Cloud can pull off and look natural in, which is especially nice given the amount of accessories he comes with. It looks great whether you want to have all his swords sheathed in his back harness, have him dual-wielding two of them, or just having him using the impressively large complete Tsurugi. On that last one – the pictures don’t really show it, but Cloud’s iconic sword here is movie-accurate in scale, managing to look huge even on a pretty tall figure.

    I’m continually impressed by little options this line keeps giving us. With Cloud you’ve got your normal varied set of hands as well as all his individual and combined swords, but you’ve also got two left arms to choose from with and without the sleeve. I should also note that this figure’s hair is solid painted plastic instead of that weird translucent hair they gave the original Play Arts version. This, along with the great sculpt, paint and texture details (like the texturing on his vest), make this easily the best Cloud figure that’s been made.

    This figure looks amazing next to my Tifa, Barret and Red XIII figures from this release (I haven’t had a chance to get Vincent yet), and the large number of poses all of them can do create a lot of options for great displays if you’re like me and don’t leave figures in boxes. If you’re collecting the line you can rest assured you’ll be happy with this addition. If you only have older figures, this is pretty much the second-best reason to upgrade to newer (the best being Barret obviously since there’s only ever been one crappy toy from the 90s before). And if you haven’t been collecting but are just a fan of the games or movie, I think you’ll still be just as happy having this figure around.

    Now that we have this, I can only hope they do a new Sephiroth figure for this line at some point, because we need it.
