Square Enix's popular Play Arts Kai line of figures will soon add two new options from the upcoming remake of Final Fantasy VII: Cloud and Barret.

Both of these figures had previously been shown off in prototype form. You can now see what the updated, colored versions of each look like in the images below, courtesy of Japanese retailer AmiAmi (via Kotaku).

Cloud stands 10.75 inches tall, while his sword is only a bit shorter at 9.6 inches. The figure also comes with six interchangeable hands and a base. The Barret figure is even taller at 11.6 inches and comes with one optional hand and a base.

AmiAmi is ordering preorders on both figures now. Cloud's release comes in April 2017, with Barret following in May. They're both priced at 11,300 yen (about $98), which the store says is a 29 percent discount off the MSRP of 15,984 yen ($139).

The Play Arts Kai line has offered its take on numerous characters from Square Enix series and other, third-party franchises, such as Batman and various Star Wars characters. These two aren't the first Final Fantasy VII Remake figures, as Sephiroth previously got one.

Final Fantasy VII Remake was announced last year as an episodic game. The first episode does not yet have a release date.

Will Tifa and Aerith not be in the FFVIIR Episode 1 or are they just not uncovering/releasing the figures until SE reveals them? I hope the latter.

I will definitely be buying the Barret figure. Amazing looking.

I guess the Cloud amiibo just got one-upped

It's good that Cloud doesn't have skinny chicken arms like he does on the FF7 Remake gameplay trailer.

@xwinson:

That was my first thought when I saw the figurine. I hope SE will change his arms in the game too.

"These two aren't the first Final Fantasy VII Remake figures, as Sephiroth previously got one."

Just thought I'd point out that the Sephiroth one is based on Advent Children form, as the article linked states. Not Remake form.

And these Play Arts Kai figures look amazing as usual.
Cheers.

Oh man. That looks sweet. Imagine what Tifa/Aerith/Yuffie would like in their Play Arts Kai form :)

If they make a Sailor-suit Barret, they'll have my money.

@playstationzone: dumbed down to a button masher instead of tactical? I hope no

@playstationzone: I kinda got hooked on the active cross battle now. So I hope they play it like FFXV but with a good story telling and pacing :)

Great figures! I was never a huge fan of these characters, but I love well made action figures. Barrett actually looks handsome for a change!

I hope the combat isn't like FF15, it's awful

You think FF15 has amazing combat, it's a mess

@Supabul: Care to go into more detail about what makes it bad?

@Whitescarver: I havent gotten too far into the game, maybe chapter 4, but i think the magic was a let down. I would have preferred a little more variety in the types of magic instead of the 3 main bases you could mix from. They are missing Ultima, meteor, flare, quake, sleep, haste, ....etc....etc the magic we see in almost every other final fantasy game, along with only 4 summons.

While i love the idea, i would have liked a little more depth in the magic department.

The drag scene is going to be so hilarious in the remake.
