As if it needed to be said, Uncharted 4: A Thief's End has not only been one of the most well-received recent releases–it won Game of the Year at the 2017 SXSW Awards, for instance–but also the franchise as a whole is one of the most recognizable and lucrative series for both its publisher Sony Interactive Entertainment and developer Naughty Dog. With this being the case, the companies have now announced a partnership with the specialty movie, film, television, and video game toy manufacturer Sideshow to produce a limited edition run of a statue inspired by the series protagonist Nathan Drake, with pre-orders being open now.
As seen in the series of images below, the limited edition Uncharted 4 statue from Sony Interactive Entertainment, Naughty Dog, and Sideshow depicts Nathan Drake performing one of his signature leaping take downs of one of the action-adventure game's Shoreline soldier enemies. While the piece is decidedly well done, as it is quite colorful and highly detailed, some fans of the franchise might balk at the price, as it's listed at $350.
Should Sony, Naughty Dog, and Sideshow's Uncharted 4: A Thief's End not be up some gamers' alleys, the company has a plethora of gaming-related products hosted on its site, such as Prime 1 Studio's incredibly expensive Witcher 3 statue of Geralt of Rivia. Fans of action-adventure titles aren't the only ones who have collectibles geared toward them, as Sideshow also has fighting game aficionados covered with statues like that of the Pop Culture Shock produced Mortal Kombat X version of Sub-Zero.
All things considered, although the Uncharted 4 statue for Nathan Drake would look great on any Naughty Dog fan's shelf, it would be quite remarkable if Sideshow manages to sell all of them, even if they're from a limited edition run. After all, most gamers are simply doing their best to save up enough money to purchase all of the titles they want from 2017's full video game release schedule.
Uncharted 4: A Thief's End is out now for PlayStation 4.
