Since the start of Fullmetal Alchemist: Brotherhood, there have been new figures coming out. This time, Square Enix once again have Fullmetal Alchemist play arts figures. The figures are of the Elric brothers and the elusive Roy Mustang. These wonderful Play Arts figures manufactured by Kotobukiya are now available for pre-orders at Hobby Search. The figures will be released on October and will be sold for 3,800 yen (for Ed and Roy) and 4,560 yen (for Al).
I love the detail of their outfits but I couldn’t place why I don’t like Ed’s face(s) — I’m guessing his faces are too realistic for me. Compared to the first series of FMA Play Arts figures, these are leaning onto a more realistic look — similar to the Final Fantasy Play Arts figures — those transisitoned nicely since Final Fantasy art has always looked more realistic, while the FMA figures are a bit 50-50 on the realism.
All of them have alternate heads/faces (unsure of which), and it seems that Ed’s arms can be changed into his automail arm — and his coat is most likely cast-offable, based on the photos.
Since Al is pure armor — the realism makes him a wonderful figure — and because he has more intricate details, his price tag is higher by a notch. I’m not sure if he has some accessories with him other than his OwO face, which I find adorable. >w<
Roy comes with an alternate head with his military cap on — his looks make me melt *fangirl moment*.
Overall, the three Play Arts figures are very nice! I might buy them in the future, but not at the moment since I’m saving up for Saber Lily.
