May I suggest getting updated renders from Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX? The low-quality renders on a multitude of pages just look bad, like Wight Knight and Defender_(shield). I would try to do it myself, but I don't have anything that can go into a PS3 Blu-Ray disc, unless you can't do that (which would make this a lost cause like KH3D at the moment).

Game Clear Data KHRECOM.png We have a policy here that official renders released by SquareEnix trump all other images. For the HD 1.5 ReMIX only eight new renders were released (Sora, Riku, Kairi, Tarzan, Piglet, Roxas, Xion and Axel) so the rest is still from the other games. Most of them are from scans of the different guide books or magazines. In the Defender shield's case it's the KH Ultimania which generelly only features medicore printing quality and in the Wight Knight's case it's the KHII and KHIIFM Ultimania (I'm not sure what you don't like about them, probably the blurry hand of the FM render but without ripping the page out there is not much that can be done about it).

Generally the graphical updates of the 1.5 HD ReMIX are very limited, apart from the new Sora, Kairi, Riku and Ansem model only some world and HUD textures were improved (e.g. the Awakening stations) so there is little sense in using the rest. On top of that the PS3 data is also encrypted and can only be decrypted with a CFW at the moment and the model format is also not understood very well.
The original KH models on the other hand can be displayed with some selected viewers, although this is only true for the characters and the enemies as most of the other objects (like the different doodads, chests, weapons etc.) and maps are not extracted this easiliy or use a different model format altogether which still can't be displayed at this point. There are still some other ways left of course, but these requiere much more effort and advanced know-how in 3D modeling stuff which I personally just don't have the understanding or patience for. o0DemonBoy0o on the Spriters/Models Spriters Resource site ripped some of these objects (including the KH weapon models whose images you can find here). So go there and praise him in his submission thread, maybe he will rip the Defender shield someday, then we can also update the image here.:-)

Yeah, I guess I just love to update stuff on the site. I didn't realize how much of a hardcore fangirl I am until recently. I really hope that the HD models show up soon. Thank you. :3
