Merchandise Idea

9 replies 224 views Edited Sep 11, 2012

This was another random idea I had.  Wouldn't it be cool if a company were to make little collectible figurines of each of the characters from the game?  Not necessarily action figures (though that would also be cool), but small 3" statues that you can put on display, sort of like the trophies in Smash Bros. but in real life.  The poses would probably just be 3-D versions of the renders from the site.

 

Better yet, they could be like those miniature boxed figurines you see in Barnes & Noble where you won't know which one you get until you open the box.  SuperBot could then do some sort of pre-order bonus where they include one with the game.

 

Would you want to see something like this? Smiley Surprised

I looooove game statues. Have one of Nathan Drake and Cole MacGrath from their respective Collector's Editions. Aiming for Kratos next with God of War: Ascension.

 

In relation to your topic, umm...HELL YES! Lol.

LOL, I hadn't thought of that.  Three Fat Princesses wouldn't be too good, yeah.  I guess it wouldn't have to be random; just a regular collectible figurine set would work too.  I also think they could be released in separate series:

 

Series 1

  • Kratos
  • Fat Princess
  • PaRappa
  • Sweet Tooth
  • Colonel Radec
  • Sly Cooper
  • Nathan Drake
  • Big Daddy

Series 2

  • Heihachi Mishima
  • Toro Inoue
  • Jak and Daxter
  • Cole MacGrath
  • Sackboy
  • Dante
  • Ratchet & Clank
  • Spike

Series 3

  • Evil Cole MacGrath
  • Raiden
  • Nariko
  • Sir Daniel Fortesque
  • (remaining TBA characters)

Also, if they DO go with the random idea, there could possibly be hidden variants in each series that contain a character's alternate costume.  That would be pretty neat.  ARE YOU LISTENING, SUPERBOT?

I'd totally dig PlayArts figures (The figures in the collector's editions have been pretty meh). Also I would totally be into plushies. Just seeing a cute little Ratchet or Jak OR EVEN BIG DADDY. I would buy that in seconds.
