Kingdom Hearts figures on sale, still kind of pricey
Oh, and you'll have to import 'em if you want 'em. Still, for the Kingdom Hearts faithful, the Japanese Square Enix shop has the Play Arts line of figures from the game discounted to ¥ 3,800 (about $45 USD) right now. In this case, "discounted" is something of a relative term.
