FFVIII Play Arts Selphie

The choice of making Selphie the third character for the VIII Play Arts series always baffled me as I always considered Zell, Quistis and Seifer to be more central to the game. Either way this figure is not bad. In fact I find the thought of her worse than she actually is. The detail is good on the figure although I find her outfit to be awful – but it is very true to the game. Her nunchucks are pretty good: they have little detail at all and are literally red plastic cylinders but I like the chain which joins them and she holds them very well; actually she holds any pose I put her in. I always hear bad things about Selphie but this is not a bad figure at all. It’s just a huge shame Square didn’t make a more popular character such Seifer in this series.
