While several main characters from Final Fantasy VII Remake previously had Play Arts Kai action figures revealed like Cloud, Tifa, Barret, and Aerith, it looks like the line isn't done yet as new figures for Sephiroth, Rude, and Reno have since been revealed as well. The Play Arts Kai line of action figures are particularly notable for their articulation and holding poses well, which means you can create little dioramas out of the characters fairly easily. Sephiroth, Rude, and Reno are now available to pre-order, and we've included a bunch of product shots and details below!
Notably absent from the line so far are fellow Turk Tseng (among others) and Red XIII. One assumes that, if Square Enix continues to add to the Play Arts Kai line, they will be revealed sooner or later. Given that Red XIII is a wildly different sort of model rather than the traditional humanoid one, it wouldn't be all that surprising if he were the last to be given the same treatment.
