63 inch collectible of the company mascot will be ready in 2018
Hideo Kojima, creator of Metal Gear Solid and the upcoming Death Stranding, doesn't do anything by half so it makes sense that a collectible featuring his new studio's mascot would be the most expensive on the market.
Ludens (also known as Ludence) is the space soldier face of Kojima Productions. He's been recreated at half scale by Prime 1 Studio in a limited edition run of 150. The attention to detail is exceptional, and so is the price. $1999.99, or a payment plan for as little as $225 a month. You can pre-order one now, for delivery between January and March of 2018.
"Ludens' design has a high-tech feel, giving him a nostalgic ambiance," says distributor Sideshow Collectibles.
"The surface of his EVA suit has 'Turing pattern'-like elements that slightly rotate, inspired by the Turing machine."
The Sideshow Collectibles edition will be signed by Kojima too. Their site also boasts other premium collectibles like a life-size Deadpool Bust ($979) and a Jyn Erso figurine (just $500.)
