Thank you for the heads up Ghaleon. Unfortunately this is a 'fake' collectors edition. It is just the deluxe edition of FF7 remake with a play arts kai statue throw in the shipping box. I was so hopeful when it was announced that there would be a 'super mega awesome edition' and yet here we are.

 

 

 

Please note, this is a soft bundle.  The FINAL FANTASY VII REMAKE Deluxe Edition contents are bundled separately from the Play Arts Kai Cloud Strife & Hardy Daytona.

I would pay money to not have that carbuncle monstrosity in my game.

I had it originally ordered and cancelled, kinda figured this would happen. I do kind of want the Cloud Figure, but for this price I feel like this thing won't sell out. The special edition they had for FFXV felt more worthwhile as far as included content goes.

Final Fantasy 7 is my favorite game of all time. And this is exactly the reason I cancelled my Special edition.

Guys/Girls just be careful with any special, complete, collector's editions that pop up from now until release especially with Square-Enix mentioning that physical copies may be hard to obtain.

 

On another note, I've been holding out on pre-ordering any version of this game because I keep hoping a deal will pop up but it hasn't so far. I missed out on that Amazon price drop a while back which sucks.

Thanks for mentioning that. Just checked, and I had one that I ordered in June 2019 coming for $44. Totally forgot and ordered the Deluxe Edition in December as well.

I had that early pre-order bonus price on the standard version through Amazon, and when the delay happened Amazon charged my account and used up money I had on my giftcard amount prematurely. Usually they charge when it ships but their system took out the money way ahead of time and I had to cancel it so I lost the discount.

 

I only wanted the deluxe version for Cactuar but the extra cost isn't worth it to me, and the digital deluxe version is the only one that comes with both Cactuar and Carbuncle aside from the overpriced First Class physical edition.

Yeah, that is sketchy. I feel like the factory they used lost some other orders due to cororavirus and had excess capacity, so SE was able to get more produced. I decided to keep mine partially because of the collectability but given SE's history of some overpriced CEs, I might end up canceling this.

Not sure if the limit really means anything, the week leading up to DQ XI's release the limit was 5 per customer for the DQ XI CE before finally selling out around launch day. DQ XI CE also never sold out during preorders until launch day. It's been a highly valued CE since.

I was going to get the Deluxe version regardless, but the fact that this comes with the Play Arts Kai Remake Cloud action figure and Hardy Daytona bike sealed the deal for me.

I have the Play Arts Kai Advent Children Cloud action figure with Fenrir Bike. That set goes for over $300. This Cloud & Hardy Daytona set will pair nicely with that.

The fact that this preorder / Deluxe Edition doesn’t qualify for the Free Shipping on Orders $75+ makes the wallet hurt extra hard.

To each their own, but my experience with Play Arts is that they're not figma quality but go for figma prices.  But if you want a figure of Square's characters you have no alternative than to pay twice what they're worth for the branding. It is not as though we will ever see a Cloud figure licensed for Nendoroid/Figma/Figuarts figure when they would rather keep it in house with their own line.

Glad I saw this and cancelled. Didn't realize the figure was separate from the game. With shipping it's like $320 for the figure lol.

Tempting, especially as a huge FF VII fan and figure collector, but Play Arts' quality still isn't commensurate with their pricing. I'll hope for Prime 1 Studio to eventually release a high-end statue instead (which will probably be 5-6x the price of this).

Uhhh..as much as I love a good ce, no thanks for this one. I just can’t see the value. Ar least for me, the Ghost of Tsushima one seems a better buy.

I let mine get cancelled.  After looking at the details of the figure, Cloud looks like doo doo.  Just a notch or two above happy meal quality paint job.

 

Also, the new email they sent said orders to limited to 1 per again; didn't check the actual site listing.

I agree with this but will say the Play Arts are substantially larger than Figma figures so it's all dependent on taste. I prefer the higher quality smaller figures a la Figma / SH Figuarts, but I can also say I wouldn't mind the large scale MGSV Venom Snake Play Arts if I could find one at an affordable price.

 

As far as this goes though i'm skipping. Got my cheap deluxe edition via Amazon a while back and the price gap from that to this makes the figure wayyyy too much for me.
