SQUARE ENIX INC
From Square Enix. Final Fantasy VII protagonist Cloud who had wandered into another world now joins the fray as a Bring Arts figure. We have recreated the characteristics of Cloud's face and the saturation of the colors on his clothing, based on Tetsuya Nomura's illustration. The pauldron on his left shoulder and the armor on his hips are designed so that they won't interfere with the range of motion, in order to allow for more dynamic posing action. Additionally, fine textural details are apparent on his cape and the bandages wrapped around his buster sword. Not only can the cape on Cloud's left shoulder be swapped with a wing, but the accessories included are quite robust, as it comes with the buster sword and a total of four interchangeable hands. You'll enjoy an amazing variety of poses, in any situation in this figure. Figure includes display stand.
