Final Fantasy – Cloud/Daytona and Cloud/Fenrir

April 16, 2009

If you’re a gamer, you’ll have played Final Fantasy 7 on the PS1 from WAAAAY back then. And if you didn’t play it then, here’s an introduction, exerpt taken from Wikipedia:

In Final Fantasy VII, Cloud is introduced as a mercenary and former member of SOLDIER, 1st Class, an elite military unit operating under the Shinra Company. Presented at the game’s start as apathetic to anything unrelated to his job, Cloud’s blasé attitude towards the goals of AVALANCHE, a resistance group fighting against Shinra, and the threat posed to the planet causes conflict with the other characters, and his background produces misgivings as to Cloud’s motivations and trustworthiness.

Cloud, meanwhile, takes pride in his past, confident in his abilities as a “former member of SOLDIER.” Despite appearing detached to members of AVALANCHE in the game’s introductory sequence, Cloud does display moments of camaraderie, some depending on the player’s choices. When confronted by his childhood friend and AVALANCHE member, Tifa *omg hot babe!*, Cloud agrees to keep his boyhood promise to protect her, continuing his AVALANCHE membership despite never having become a famous hero. Following the player’s departure from Midgar, Cloud is appointed group leader by the other members of the party, much to the chagrin of Barret, AVALANCHE’s original leader.

In interacting with Aeris *omg hot girl next door!*, a flower girl wanted by Shinra and sole survivor of an ancient race known as the Cetra, Cloud’s character is further expanded upon. He shows increased signs of good-natured humor and protectiveness, as opposed to his antagonistic use of sarcasm with Barret or comparative coolness to everyone other than Tifa that he has previously spoken with.

Aeris, in turn, reciprocates this attitude, offering her assistance to lead Cloud back to Sector 7 and to rescue Tifa in Sector 6, despite Cloud being her bodyguard and the danger present. Aerith also inquires about Cloud’s romantic life, and, depending on the player’s dialogue choices and actions, could be one of several characters to take Cloud on a “date” at the Golden Saucer, an enormous amusement park, along with Tifa, and less seriously, Barret and optional character Yuffie. This love triangle aspect between Cloud, Tifa and Aerith is primarily focused on in the first disc, and at times is used to humorous effect. 

And Cloud completes the bad-boy look with his trusty bike, Hardy Daytona, first seen in a cut scene in the game:

Cloud also makes an appearance in the 2005 spin-off of Final Fantasy 7, Advent Children. The idea for Advent Children came about when script writer Kazushige Nojima wrote a script that was “just a story about Cloud and Tifa and the kids”. Visual Works, a company that has developed CG films for Square, picked Final Fantasy VII as the theme for a presentation that they were going to create.

Taking place two years after the events of Final Fantasy VII, the survivors of Midgar have begun to build a new city, Edge, on the outskirts of the old metropolis. A strange disease known as “Geostigma” has arisen. After Cloud’s showdown with Sephiroth, he has been living with Tifa in Edge. Marlene and an orphaned boy named Denzel have been entrusted to their care.

After receiving a message from Tifa, Cloud is attacked by three men, Kadaj, Loz, and Yazoo, who believe that he has hidden their “mother”. The leader, Kadaj, ends the battle as he discovers that Cloud does not have their “mother”. Cloud responds to a message from Tifa, who tells him that the Turks have a job for him. At the meeting place, Cloud discovers that Rufus Shinra is still alive. Rufus attempts to enlist Cloud’s help to stop the trio, but fails. Kadaj arrives and demands that Rufus tell him where to find his “mother”. It is revealed that his “mother” is Jenova’s remains, and is somehow connected to the cause of the Geostigma. The trio are planning a new “reunion” that will culminate in an assault on the Planet.

Here’s a quick look of Cloud (always the bad-boy) on his new bike, Fenrir, as seen in a bike chase scene in Advent Children.

Now, Square Enix have reproduced, to excellent likeness, both Clouds as seen in the game and movie, as well as the cool super bikes.

Here we have Cloud and Hardy Daytona as seen in the game:

cloud-and-daytona4

cloud-and-daytona3

With a fully poseable Cloud, the two certainly look great together:

And here’s Cloud and Fenrir as seen in the movie!

Vinyl Collectible Doll : W-size Doraemon

April 15, 2009

It’s everybody’s favorite robot cat from the future, Doraemon!

If you’ve ever wondered how Doraemon came to be, here’s how:

doraemon-vinyl

Medicom brings us a delightfully HUGE (40cm tall–that’s about one-third lifesize!) vinyl collectible figure of the iconic anime character. This has got to be the absolute largest Doraemon I’ve ever encountered in my entire life.

Only 1,293 will be produced (in honor of the “real” Doraemon’s 129.3kg weight, 129.3cm height, max power of 129.3 bhp, max running speed of 129.3km/h…you get the idea)! Picture him outside your front door greeting guests! He’s virtually guaranteed to make you smile–make him yours today!

Here’s a little something to get our readers into the Doraemon mood:

 

And here’s a rather amusing clip of a live action Doraemon:

Notice that Doraemon doesn’t actually go down the stage to interact with the audience. I wonder if the organisers somehow think that the poor Doraemon would have gotten mobbed by the scores of kids present.

Imagine the headlines: ‘Doraemon Trampled To Death By Adoring Fans’

Lol.

The W-Size Doraemon is currently available at a very affordable price of SGD299.90!

T-600 Endoskeleton and John Connor From Hot Toys (Terminator Salvation)

April 12, 2009

Those who do not know what The Terminator is, raise your hands.

*crickets*

Yeah, I thought so.

Don’t know about you, but I’m a HUGE fan. So I was completely psyched when they announced they were starting a new trilogy with Christian Bale as John Conner, no less!

Set in post-apocalyptic 2018, John Connor is the man fated to lead the human resistance against Skynet and its army of Terminators. But the future Connor was raised to believe in, is altered in part by the appearance of Marcus Wright, a stranger whose last memory is of being on death row. Connor must decide whether Marcus has been sent from the future, or rescued from the past.

As Skynet prepares its final onslaught, Connor and Marcus both embark on an odyssey that takes them into the heart of Skynet’s operations, where they uncover the terrible secret behind the possible annihilation of mankind.

Watch the trailers here.

And here’s your chance to go to the movies with your very own 1/6th scale T-600 Endoskeleton collectible figure from Hot Toys!

April 8, 2009

Unless you’ve been living under a rock for the most part of 2008, you’d know that The Dark Knight was only the biggest superhero film to hit screens worldwide.

And if you haven’t been living under a rock, you’d also know that Heath Ledger chillingly and accurately played one of the most famous super criminals in the comic book world. His portrayal of the Joker still sends shivers down my spine everytime I think of his performance.

I still remember when Heath was cast as the Joker, I couldn’t imagine how he’d pull it off. Then the first teaser trailer hit the internet and I heard that voice and laugh and I knew…I just KNEW he got the Joker’s essence down pat.

It is therefore of no surprise that Hot Toys has created a replica figure of the late Heath Ledger from the movie, The Dark Knight, in 1/6 scale:
