Watch a Professional Figure Skater Skate to the Music of ‘Chrono Trigger’

It’s a shame this guy didn’t win, because this would have been legendary.

Bravo, I say.

Remember folks this is an action figure, not a statue, and this level of detail in a simple action figure is astounding. Hit the jump for more photos.
