With Destiny‘s forthcoming sequel now having been officially confirmed by way of a reveal trailer, fans of Bungie’s science fiction shooter should get prepared for the veritable onslaught of promotional materials and ancillary collectibles leading up to the game’s release, such as EB Games and GameStop’s new listings for the availability of a figure based on Lord Saladin and his wolfpack. As it happens, the figure is available to pre-order now, although the release dates on both sites differ, with EB listing it as August 31, and GameStop as September 30.
As seen in the image below, Lord Saladin stands proudly atop a hexagonal base while wielding his battle axe, as a pair of snarling white wolves join him on both sides, ready to take on any and all comers. According to the figure’s product details, the Lord Saladin model is an officially licensed Destiny collectible made of PVC, with detailed armor and weapon accents from the Iron Banner faction, and it stands in at 4 inches tall.
While the figure of Destiny‘s Lord Saladin and his wolfpack is decidedly nifty and would look good on practically any would-be Guardian’s shelf, the GameStop price tag is $20 and EB Games lists it at $27, which some might believe to be too steep considering the rather small size of the model and the quality of materials used to create it. Of course, when one puts its price next to other current-generation games’ more expensive collectibles like Overwatch‘s $150 Widowmaker statue, the cost for Lord Saladin and his wolves seems paltry by comparison.
Should the figure of Lord Saladin not interest some Destiny fans, it seems as if plenty more characters from the science fiction shooter will get their own toys. As a matter of fact, just ahead of Destiny 2‘s official reveal, a major leak of information about the sequel surfaced online to reveal that pre-orders for the game will net fans a Cayde-6 figure, but Guardians will need to act fast, as it’s only available while supplies last.
Taking all of this into consideration, it’s likely that the Lord Saladin and Cayde-6 figures are to be just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to supplementary Destiny collectibles being unveiled throughout this year. Without a doubt, Bungie intends on promoting Destiny 2 as aggressively as possible, and one great way to do so is by offering fans of the franchise the chance to own physical wares related to the title.
Destiny‘s forthcoming sequel, Destiny 2, is set to release on September 8, 2017 for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
