Square Enix brought their rouges gallery of recent and prototype collectibles to Comic-Con.
Contrary to popular belief, San Diego Comic Con isn’t just a celebration of comic books in pop culture and entertainment, as several developers and collectible manufacturers use the annual event to showcase new games and products. The likes of Square Enix and Netherrealm Studios were on hand at SDCC 2016 with the PS4 release of Rise of the Tomb Raider and the recently announced Injustice 2.
Square Enix’s Merchandise Division was also at SDCC 2016 with a plethora of new collectibles and several debut prototypes of figures and collectibles projected to release later this year. From their popular Play Arts KAI figure line, new Kingdom Hearts, Gears of War and Final Fantasy collectibles highlighted the event, alongside several of their new DC and Marvel Variant series. Several prototypes can be seen in photos courtesy of of Square Enix, including a Marcus Fenix figure, the Kingdom Hearts III version of Sora, and the Static Arts Bust Statue of King Regis of Final Fantasy XV:
Though many of the collectibles featured above are already either available for pre-order or have released to the public, such as the Metal Gear Solid V figures, several pieces were only available to purchase at SDCC 2016 due to their “out of print” status. The Final Fantasy XV Play Arts Kai figures are projected to release this September; Prompto, Noctis, Ignis and Gladiolus can all be pre-ordered through Play-Asia.
