We have been excited with the number of high-quality collectibles that are hitting the market for fans of the Mass Effect trilogy. The most recent arrival is the Commander Shepard bishoujo statue from Kotobukiya. She joins the previously released Liara T’Soni in the bishoujo line. Square Enix has also released Play Arts Kai Commander Shepard and Tali Zora Vas figures. If you haven’t seen the Play Arts Kai figures, they are really high quality, and highly detailed figures from popular video games like Mass Effect, Batman Arkham City, Halo, etc.
One of the more unique collectibles is the line of Mass Effect ship replicas from Dark Horse. Most of these are 5″-7″ long depending on the ship. However, Dark Horse is coming out with an 18″ Normandy replica and an 18.5″ Sovereign Reaper ship! We were able to see both of these at Toy Fair, and they were truly impressive.
In addition to the larger ships, Kotobukiya will be releasing a male version of Commander Shepard in the ArtFX line. This should be available around July 2013. There will be several interchangeable parts so you can display the statue several different ways. Funko will also be releasing a line of Mass Effect POP figures in September. We have seen some concept art for them, but the actual production images have not been shown yet. We are excited to see how those will turn out.
