Meet the upcoming Totaku Collection from ThinkGeek set to debut in March 2018.
Sony is getting into the collectible figures business with its new partnership with ThinkGeek. With the new partnership, ThinkGeek will produce the Totaku Collection, a collectible line of figures based on a variety of popular PlayStation franchises.
While on the surface it may seem Sony is attempting to emulate Nintendo’s successful amiibo toys to life line, it is important to point out that these new collectible figures will not feature any NFC functionality whatsoever, nor will they unlock any additional game content in their respective games. The collectibles business is heating up so this could prove to be a good business opportunity for Sony.
Beginning this March 2018, ThinkGeek will officially launch seven figures in the Totaku Collection, namely Kratos from God of War, Crash Bandicoot, Heihachi from Tekken, Sackboy from LittleBigPlanet, PaRappa The Rapper, a hunter from Bloodborne, and a Feiser FX350 racer vehicle from WipeOut. The collection will be featured exclusively at GameStop. Each figure will be sold individually and will retail for $9.99. No bundles have been announced at present time.
As of this time, these seven figures are the only planned figures for the collection. However, in the foreseeable future, we could possibly see more collectible figures based on some of PlayStation’s biggest franchises like Uncharted, Horizon Zero Dawn, The Last of Us, Rachet and Clank, Sly Cooper, Twisted Metal, Ico, and Shadow of the Colossus, among a host of other hit titles. Whether we see an expansion in the line could be directly tied to the initial success of this first batch of collectibles.
The Totaku Collection has been confirmed for sale at U.S. GameStop location with plans to also sell them at EB Games in Canada as well. So which figures are you most excited for? Which figures would you like to see added to the collectible line in the future? Sound off in the comments below.
