The Keyblade is wielded by Sora in the Kingdom Hearts games and is probably one of the most widely recognized items from the series.
Bandai already released a lovely S.H. Figuarts figure of Sora from Kingdom Hearts II earlier this month, with more Disney related characters from the games on the way. So the addition of the Keyblade, especially in this much bigger Proplica format, is really quite amazing.
To explain a bit about the Proplica range, this is a spin-off from Bandai’s Tamashii Nations collector’s brand and recreates famous props from anime, games and other live action series often with full of lights, sounds and other gimmicks.
This Keyblade is no exception, as it comes packed with lights and other sound effects (shown below).
Despite the fact that this Keyblade toy is a high-end collector’s item and at full-scale no less, the price point is surprisingly reasonable.
Coming in at 19,980 yen (or around $180) this is a lot less than other and much smaller items that Bandai has on sale currently.
Released next April, it will no doubt tie-in with the release of Kingdom Hearts III once that is finally released sometime next year.
