Final Fantasy Clothing and Apparel
More comfortable and trendy than Maximillian armor, but certainly not as protective.

Flashing several colors thanks to included LED lights, this Final Fantasy VII clock is the perfect time-keeping keepsake (that is absolutely NOT a record).
Made from super-soft microfiber material, this gray blanket features the striking Final Fantasy VII logo. Does it keep you warm? Well, does Cloud Strife carry a sword that doubles as a very flat canoe? Yes, it does, and yes, he does.

Taito Final Fantasy XIV Alphinaud Leveilleur Figure (Minion Version)
