So since the BD toys section took a dive into the abyss, I thought I would give you the DP video games crew a little heads up. There are going to be plenty of new toys for you to play with this holiday season. There’s big sisters, little sisters, big daddys, and project deltas. If you head past the break you can read more about them.
Also in wonderous news for the “I’ve gotta get the collectors edition dude” people out there, yes BioShock 2 will come in collectors form. Note the above pic. The great thing about this edition is the old school look of all the items and how well they pull it off. The Special Edition will come in 13″x13” premium packaging with special art on both the slipcase and the box cover. Inside, you will find three posters featuring vintage ads from Rapture (rolled), a vinyl 180g LP featuring the orchestral score from the original BioShock, a CD containing the BioShock 2 orchestral score, a 164 page 8″x11″ hardbound artbook chock full of developer commentary and, of course, a copy of BioShock 2. This special edition will be available for purchase (a.k.a. the release date is) February 9th, 2010 for $99.99 for Xbox 360 and PS3 and $89.99 for Games for Windows LIVE and is limited to a single production run. You can pre-order the game, and/or the special edition right now.
NECATOYS reports these toys are series 1, you can buy the Big Daddy Bouncer now, and you will be able to get the rest in January. So, if you really wanted them for the holidays, you might wanna tell your parents in advance so they don’t spend all their hard earned cash.
Subject Delta (formerly the Big Daddy player) is highly detailed and over 7″ tall, has removable hoses and backpack tanks, an interchangeable drill arm, and ball joints at the shoulders, elbows, wrists, waist, hips, knees and ankles.
Big Sister is of similarly massive 7″-plus proportion and detail. She has a removable backpack with a cage basket just the right size for capturing a Little Sister and ball joints at the neck, shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees ankles and ab crunch.
Finally, Little Sister has an ADAM syringe and ball jointed neck and shoulders, hinged elbows and knees and a v-crotch. And yes, she does actually fit in Big Sister’s basket.
There will also be a Toys R Us exclusive two-pack with Big Sister and Little Sister packaged together. Also not yet shown, but is getting me excited is the EVE Hypo light-up replica and the Big Daddy plush doll, which you can get on Xbox Live for your avatar. Stay tuned for details.
