IT’S HERE! They’re finally here, my favorite characters from the Kingdom Hearts series are here. Back in March, PoP! collectors were gifted the first wave of Kingdom Hearts PoP! figures with Mickey, Donald, Goofy, and Pete, but no human characters, like Sora, Riku, or Kairi, like I desperately wanted. Well, dreams have come true and I have Sora, Riku, Kairi, and a Heartless figure in my collection now! They look beautiful and all of the intricate belts and accessories that the characters wear in game have been modeled onto these figures near perfectly. Both Sora and Riku have their distinctive Keyblades held in their respective stances, Riku’s in front of his legs and Sora behind his body ready to swing. Kairi is wearing her outfit from Kingdom Hearts 2 and has some major blush going on on her cheeks which makes her look almost gaudy and overdone.
My favorite character, however and to my surprise, is the Heartless. He looks like so freaking adorable and if you are able to find the Chase in the wild, it will glow in the dark. Not sure which parts yet, but I really hope it’s the whole body but the yellow eyes are incredibly bright and make it look even creepier than the character itself actually is in-game. It’s cartoony and incredibly well done, even down to the cock in the head to make it seem like it has a broken neck and is something evil. I love it. These PoP!s are a must have for those who love the video game series and for those who are excited for Kingdom Hearts 3, because it’s actually happening guys. Holiday ’18. Happy Hunting.
