PlayStation-Themed Totaku Figures Feature Bloodborne, God of War, and More

Sony gets own amiibo style toyline and… official Play Station shoes Totaku – we really want that Bloodborne one
Kristine Garrett | 22 January, 2018, 01:05

ThinkGeek has unveiled a new series of figures based on PlayStation games. Available exclusively at GameStop in the United States (and GAME in some European regions, apparently), the "Totaku" collection is launching with 10cm "highly detailed" figurines of Kratos from God of War, Crash Bandicoot, LittleBigPlanet's Sackboy, Tekken's Heihachi, PaRappa the Rapper, Hunter from Bloodborne, and WipEout's Feisar FX350. Though these figurines look like amiibo in terms of packaging (likely to catch one's eye in the same way on store shelves), these figurines have no functionality with games, nor does the PS4 have any capability to "read" such figurines down the line that we're aware of. The figures will have a fixed base, which can be joined with other figures through an interlocking mechanism. The Totaku figures appear to be incredibly detailed, and we hope that the final products reflect the quality in the promotional materials.

GameStop will be the exclusive seller of Totaku figures in the U.S., and they'll be launching on March 23rd with pre-orders now available.

All of these figurines will cost $9.99 and will launch on March 23, 2018, so far only at GameStop though that may change down the line. Furthermore, those who purchase the first wave of figures will get a special symbol that identifies that the figures are the first edition.

Which ones will you be picking up? Are there any specific figurines you would like to see?
