figures at Toy Fair 2001.
The annual Toy Fair earlier this month saw the unveiling
of two Final Fantasy-inspired series of action figures from Bandai,
and toy website Figures.com
was on the scene for a full report.
Unsurprisingly, toys based on the upcoming movie
Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within were on prominent
display. The array of 6" figures from the film will include
characters Aki, Gray, Ryan, Dr. Sid, Neil, and the mysterious Phantom.
Two vehicle playsets, the Black Boa and Copperhead, will complete

the movie this July.
