Big W has started ranging official, Square Enix-licensed, Final Fantasy merchandise, among a whole heap of other Bandai collectibles.
Yes, the store where I used to buy kitchen utensils and cheap bed sheets (before I discovered good bed sheets) is now selling $300 Zack Fair action figures and $55 mouse pads adorned with artwork from Final Fantasy XV. I’m going feral over here. Aside from Final Fantasy, there’s also a bunch of licensed anime stuff from Bandai including some eye-wateringly expensive One Piece and JJK statues, a heap of smaller figures from Demon Slayer, Sailor Moon and the likes and even some adorable Kirby toys and Pokémon model kits.
It’s worth noting that the majority of these are online only, so you won’t see $700+ anime statues sitting around in your local’s clearance section in a few months, but the whole thing feels weirdly exciting to me. You can browse the whole (shockingly big) gaming collectible range at Big W here.
