Just saw this today while checking out info on Crisis Core: Pictures of Square-Enix's booth at Comic-con
. (Got the info from Crisis-Core.net
.) Turns out Squeenix is opening a store for the US: Square-Enix Online Shop
. Even if it's mail-order only, to get some of the keychains and whatnot at cheaper prices will be awesome. One picture before the one I linked above, shows keychains for three series
with reasonable prices. Yeah, the look to bring their silver jewelry as well, but hopefully it will knock out some of the bootlegs I've seen for keychains and whatnot. The booth at Comic-con is selling some of them there now. I'm envious.
Also, go check out those pictures! If you were ever interested in seeing the oh-so-expensive Cloud and Sephiroth Masterpiece Arts figures, they've got them on display at Comic-con.IGN Square-Enix Booth PicturesFigures.com Playarts Pictures
(Which, by the way, the Crisis Core website
just updated today with soundtrack info!!)
Also, Square-Enix's Japan Online store has a blog
for what's being developed about about the retail location they have. Point of interest? The pictures being posted about the new Play Arts figures. (Which some are already on display as Coming Soon items at the booth at Comic-con.) They're coming out with the original Final Fantasy VII designs, including Cloud with the Hardy Daytona. I'm...sad to say that I would probably buy that version of Cloud as well, depending on how much I like the sculpt. And its looking like I will.
