With Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End nearing its one-year anniversary, many fans are looking back on Nathan Drake’s final adventure in the franchise as a true tour-de-force – and, of course, one of the PlayStation 4’s best games. But what better way to commemorate the legacy of Drake and his adventures than with a limited edition statue?
Today, Sony Interactive Entertainment America and Naughty Dog announced a new limited edition collectible statue that is now available for pre-order in the PlayStation Gear Store. The companies have made note that only 1,500 units of this statue will be available overall, and it’ll sell for $350.00. It’s expected to ship sometime in May – commemorating the first anniversary of the series.
The statue itself looks rather cool. Instead of just focusing on Drake himself as he stands over some kind of abyss or something along those lines, the limited edition statue actually features him in action, as he appears ready to knock the teeth down the throat of an adversary, jumping in with a fist attack. For those of you who appreciate Uncharted 4’s action, this statue appears to capture that perfectly. And it’ll look pretty damn good sitting on a game collection shelf, probably right next to all of your Uncharted titles.
The statue is made of polystone, and stands about twenty inches tall, so you’re certainly getting your money’s worth from it when it comes to its hefty price tag. Plus, knowing some of you collectors, you went all out to get the limited editions of the game anyway, like the one that came with the Phurba dagger so many years ago (it’s now going for thousands of dollars on eBay) and even last year’s collector’s edition, which is doing quite well on the sales front as well. So, yes, what’s another $350 to make your Nathan Drake collection a little more complete?
On top of that, the statue is a nice little “go-between” between the original release of Uncharted 4: A Thief’s End and Uncharted: The Lost Legacy, a spin-off that features Chloe Frazer. The spin-off was revealed late last year during PlayStation Experience, and though the game doesn’t have a release date just yet, it’s expected sometime this year.
