So early reports suggest Zack will be 266mm while remake Cloud is 273mm

A little bit disappointing, rethinking what I'm gonna purchase now...

Really? I dont know why square keeps messing with the scaling. They clearly have all the info on characterís bios and heights. So why cant just they scale it accordingly. Iím already pretty miffed that squall pak is shorter than cloud...

The height difference is strange... but for me, not a deal breaker. I'll just pose Cloud kneeling with the Buster Sword.

Its not andeal breaker, but still. With the ever rising price, they still cant do the scaling properly. This goes back all the way to the old play arts figure.

Even pak from a same line sometimes have messed up scaling too. I think its because they do not plan ahead on which figures they gonna include in the line. So over time, when they decided to revisit a line, the scaling is inconsistent to the older paks already in that line (case in point: pak ac vincent is shorter than newer pak figures, while we know that vincent is supposed to be one of the tallest characters in vii and ff universe in general. Probably second after sephiroth...)

It's a deal breaker for me, sadly. Even the original PA Zack lined up fine with the original PA Cloud. I don't get it, they go ahead and spend money making new moulds for Zack (I'm sure they could've got away with using some parts from Cloud on Zack, even thighs or boots), but then try and save money by making him slightly smaller? So even their Buster Swords will be different sizes?

Was really thinking of getting into the Remake line because of Zack, now I might just have to stick with Zack on solo display.

Indeed. I think PAK's need to start with interchangeable faceplate expressions (or should have had them from the beginning). Although as I'm never keen on the seam those cause, interchangeable heads (though either or would bump up the retail price, I'm sure). A smirk would be just as good as that grin, if not better.

10+ years late. Would have loved these back then with the other AC ones. It's amazing how they've changed since then though, the detail on them now is amazing. I'd love OG Barret and Cid though.

I literally just want Cait Sith. Anyone willing to split the price with me who doesn't want the little bugger? Channy? Anyone?

Just to let you guys knows, the PAK Remake Cloud is on sale for $99.99 at ThinkGeek.com

http://www.thinkgeek.com/product/jrik/?srp=4

It's going for 12,800 yen on AmiAmi right now, which is about $113. Just thought I'd let some of you guys know if you were planning on getting it eventually.

I have a story about my PAK Cloud.

I just adopted a cat. She's napping beside me now. It's great. Last weekend was my first whole day with her AND my first day to play the Monster Hunter World beta. I let her into my game room. She meows a lot and wants to jump up on things to get a better view. No biggie. I'm pretty excited so I plop down on my recliner and get started. Literally seconds into my first quest I hear a slam that sounds a lot like solid plastic hitting the floor from a five foot drop. Yes it was my Cloud figure. Yes it snapped the Buster Sword at its hilt.

Thank the gods for glue.
