Cloud Stomps on Aeris' Memory

A new Cloud figure is in the works, but it's not too impressive.

Sideshow's Cloud Strife
Sideshow's Cloud Strife
Kotaku spotted this new figure of Final Fantasy VII's Cloud Strife from Sideshow Collectibles that, well, seems to have missed the mark a bit. First, it's not even all that well-sculpted; Cloud just looks angry and his hair looks terrible. Second, he's stomping all over Aeris' flowers.


And third...apparently those weird things in the back that look kind of like pointy ice shards of death, covered in rust or something? That's supposed to be the “protecting light” of the church. Um...yeah, no, Sideshow. Sorry.

Those look like part of Superman's Fortress of Solitude from the movies.

Actually it looks like a fairly accurate depiction of when Cloud first met Aerith to me. Remember he fell from the sky and destroyed a lot of the flowers? I imagine the spiky things are supposed to be sun-rays coming from the hole in the ceiling.

Slinger: I get what it's SUPPOSED to be, I just think it looks awful X.x

Meh, I like my toys to be poseable anyway. You can't play with a statue.

I'd stomp all over her flowers too. Honestly she was one of the most annoying characters in FF7.

stomps on aeris memorie....  right...
How come People Hate Aerith so Much? was it just because she was the main female instead of Tifa? I get that alot, and it gets really annoying.
