FLASH BACK! Prior & After The Kingdom Hearts Premium Theatre Event!

Hi everyone it's Xebs, during my trip to Japan, a lot of breaking news happened, which I didn't get to cover. So... I'll be listing the events that took place during my absents.

Halloween Town Sora & Riku Play Arts Kai Figures Up For Pre-Order!


Final coloured versions of the Kingdom Hearts II Riku and Kingdom Hearts II Halloween Town Sora Play Arts Kai figures have finally been revealed. These figures will be in stores February 2016, however you can now pre-order Sora and Riku at the SQUARE-ENIX e-store. 

They were first shown as prototypes at San Diego Comic-Con 2015, Tokyo Game Show 2015, and New York Comic-Con 2015.






Kingdom Hearts Premium Theater event at D23 Expo Japan 2015

Ok, during my trip to Japan I went to DisneySea, on the same day as the Kingdom Hearts Premium Theatre Event. During that day I went looking around the place, then I saw a couple of Kingdom Hearts cosplayers heading to the event, so I followed them to the Cinema Ikspairi.

As I approached the ticket booth at the Cinema Ikspairi, I said to the woman who served me (in my very bad Japanese) "Do you have anymore tickets?", She replied in English "No sorry, you should come earlier, tickets [were] still available". She gave me the impression that I could have entered the Kingdom Hearts event if I rocked up earlier. I was very upset.

While I was about to leave... I saw something that made me so happy, which I'll be explaining more soon.
