The Return of the Bandicoot
The Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy will be released for the PS4 on June 30. The three original games from the PlayStation are coming back with a new HD look but with the same gameplay. For many PlayStation gamers, Crash was their Mario. His games helped fill the void for PS1 gamers who did not have a Sonic or Mario to call their own.
Crash was hailed as the PlayStation’s unofficial mascot. Alas, Crash was never a Sony property and after Naughty Dog moved on to the Jak series, future Crash games have always lacked a certain soul that made the first trilogy so special. Now, Activision is bringing the marsupial back and First 4 Figures is joining the festivities with a beautiful Crash Bandicoot statue.
The painted PVC Statue stands 9 inches tall comes with a sturdy base in a beautiful collector’s box that just jumps out of the game. There is an exclusive version available as well, with more goodies.
For the Exclusive Edition, you get:
- 9″ PVC Painted Crash Bandicoot Statue
- Premium Deluxe Wumpa Box, straight from the game!
- The Regular Collector’s Box
- An Authentication Card
Preorders today will receive Day One Exclusive Bonuses! Bonuses include:
- Signature Card signed by Alex Davis
- Day One Edition Hologram Sticker
- Bonus points for future F4F purchases
The number of Limited Edition sets will be announced by July 11. The figure is expected to release on August 2017. You’ve got enough time to play the HD remake that comes out later this month before the figure comes out.
For the Love of Videogames
First4Figures is a maker of high-quality collectible figures and statues specializing in video game characters. Some other offerings for this year include Link from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild and a Sonic the Hedgehog 25th Anniversary Statue.
The figures sell out fast, as can be seen with the Link figure. Prices are pretty steep. You could buy a game console for the price of one figure but given the quality of their work, you do get what you pay for. The Crash statue is actually one of their cheaper offerings, with the Exclusive Edition priced at $90.
