Square Enix's Play Arts Kai line of collectible figures has conjured up some twisted action figure creations in the past few years, most notably their Batman/Two Face, Berserker Wolverine and Wild West Batman releases.
The latest outrageous variant comes in the form of Marvel's Master of Metals, Magneto, an impressive 10-inch superhero collectible sporting a dramatic shredded metal-style cape, interchangeable portrait and hands, and two swirling special effects pieces.
Here's the official press release:
He has been both a member of the X-Men as well as their antagonist. Dubbed the Master of Magnetism, Magneto has the ability to control nearly any metal. With our Marvel Universe Variant, we have placed importance on the figure’s heft and hardness, in an effort to express his special abilities. His cape especially has been designed with magnetic forces in mind. With the concept of a collection of small iron sand and metal pieces pulled together by magnetic force serving as its inspiration, it adopts a unique texture that differs from a traditional cloth cape. The application of the paintwork creates a stark contrast between light and shadow to emphasize his weighty presence.
He projects the air of overwhelming strength befitting a mutant with powers capable of manipulating even the Earth’s magnetic fields.
With expressive interchangeable hand, face and effect parts included, this figure constitutes a comprehensive package of Magneto’s power and strength. Figure includes display stand.
This intimidating Play Arts Variant Magneto will be priced at $149.99 when it's unchained in Japan this August.
