Toy Review: Final Fantasy III trading art figures

We went down to East London today. Did some cultural shopping down at Greenwich Market, then visited the new TokyoToys market stall across the road where Jenni went to pick up her Final Fantasy III DS trading art PVC figures. Final Fantasy III DS was the second ever RPG that she played. She even completed it without a walkthrough, putting to shame the professional reviewers who bemoaned the game for its apparent difficulty (owned) and old-school'ness.

These official Squenix licensed figures seems to like the company of video games:

L-R: Luneth (freelancer), Arc (red mage), Refia (dragoon & devout) and Ingus (knight)

Cute aren't they? The character designs on this remake were by Akihiko Yoshida, who also designed the characters for Final Fantasy Tactics, Final Fantasy XII and Vagrant Story, among others.

Dragoon Refia just loves the attention.

The figures are pre-painted and display ready. They come with small display stands which could not be removed (a shame - but understandable). Each stands around 2 1/2 inches tall and are quite faithful to the character design. Overall we are quite happy with these fellas, as the quality are reasonable for the price.

You can purchase the set here.

Insta-purchase from me- the character designs of FFIII were one of my favourite things about the game.

I know this is super old, but I'm IN LOVE with these figures and I can't find them ANYWHERE. The only place I have located them is a single seller on ebay, but I'm not sure I want to pay those prices!
