Our friends at Diamond Select Toys (@CollectDST) were kind enough to send us a few pieces from their Kingdom Hearts Select series of figures for review. We made an unboxing/review video for you all, which you can view below:


These figures are great for collectors because they offer unique figures for characters who have yet to receive the action figure treatment: Axel, the Soldier Heartless, and the Dusk Nobody. They all stand fairly easily, save for the dusk who needs a special stand. The accessories accompanying Sora, Axel, and Mickey are great quality and make for a fun display. The downfalls include spotty paint jobs, awkward face models, and not many posing opportunities due to a lack of points of articulation. Overall, these figures are good quality, durable, and will fit into any collector's collection.

Thank you to Diamond Select Toys for this opportunity.

After seeing this review, would you be willing to purchase this line of Kingdom Hearts action figures? Let us know what you think in the comments!

A Japanese commercial for the Kingdom Key PROPLICA can also be found on its AmiAmi page that was uploaded to YouTube by the official Japanese Bandai account. You can check out this commercial below:


The model utters various spells (Fire/Blizzard/Thunder/Cure) which is followed by a change in color of the LEDs at the base of the blade!

You can take a look at the video description of the commercial below:

It's been 15 years since the release of the popular game Kingdom Hearts.

From Bandai's adult-oriented display model series "PROPLICA", with a size of about 95cm in total length, appears the "Keyblade" - literally, the key to the game.

The size was indexed based on Sora's in-game balance, it is just the right size for adults.

It is equipped with attack and magic sound effects for when it is activated, and the base of the blade will project various colors according to the sound.

There is no doubt that it will immerse you in the world of Kingdom Hearts.

Let's get to Sora with the Keyblade in hand!


You can also check out the product description for the Kingdom Key PROPLICA below:

The key to opening the door to the heart.

From PROPLICA, a Keyblade is presented.
Built-in sounds such as attack sounds and magic trigger sounds.
Fires at magic activation. In order to reproduce the scene to open the door [to the heart of the world], a keyhole is projected.

Modeling / Size
While following the proportion of appearance in the game, the balance has been calculated to match to human size, adjusting the beautiful form.
Because it is a simple modeling, it builds details.
The size of approximately 950 mm in total length guides it to "real".

Beautiful light
At the time of magic invocation, the base of the sword emits six colors, randomly flashing!

Sound
Produces various realistic sounds!

Gimmick
