    The SE store is currently advertising for pre-order a Squall Play Arts Kai figure from Dissidia. They announce the release date as Jan. 2017 but I'm not sure if this is any different from the previous Dissidia Squall PAK released a few years ago which I already own... Any one know?

    To me, this is a new item with far better detail, hence the increase in price. I have the Japanese version of the older one and think I only paid 1/3 of the price of the new one. This costs 15 000 yen + taxes in Japan and is out a little earlier over there (28th of November, 2016)

    Just seems unusual that they would release two of the same model from the same game in such close proximity with the exact same name.

    I don't think the old ones came with a stand though so that might also suggest it is new.

    A female friend of mine saw it in a glass display at GamesCom. Apparently, SquareEnix had their own merchandise booth that displayed the new Play Arts Kay figures. Squall was one of them and she said it's different and better looking. Like you said, still strange they did not change the product name. Not easy being a consumer

    By the way, how much did you pay for the old model? Did it cost you more than around 50 dollars? I cannot remember the retail price but remember getting hold for no more than that.

    Is the old model this one here? Amazon Japan

    This site here list the older version which came out in at the end of May 2011. As I thought, its price was 4800 (ex tax) yen only.
