Square Enix's version of Thor comes with the the Norse god of thunder's trademark hammer (of course), as well as a lightning effect and a plastic cape.

Also included are some interchangeable parts, including various hands and even a second face that depicts a much angrier Thor. There's also a figure stand.

According to Toy Ark, which obtained the photos in the gallery below, the Play Arts Variant Thor will launch in September. The figure will be priced at ¥14,800 (about $122).
