From PAX East, Gecco has announced that the characters from the asymmetrical multiplayer horror game "Dead by Daylight"are going to be turned into 1/6 scale high-end statues. With the prototype of "The Wraith"statue on display at the Behaviour Interactive booth (#13109). Being a fan of the game - I play it on PS4 - I'm looking forward to seeing all of the creepy "killers" come to statue form. I wonder if there's enough demand to get any of the survivors into the collectible line.
More detailed information such as the price, release date, and lineup will be announced soon.

Limited to a run of 10 pieces, you can pick them up for $250.00 each.

A venerable if maverick Jedi Master, Qui-Gon Jinn was a student of the living Force. Qui-Gon lived for the moment, espousing a philosophy of "feel, don't think -- use your instincts." On Tatooine, Qui-Gon discovered a young slave boy named Anakin Skywalker who was strong in the Force. Sensing the boy's potential, Qui-Gon liberated Anakin from slavery. The Jedi Master presented Anakin to the Jedi Council, but they deemed the boy too old to begin training and dangerously full of fear and anger. They refused to allow Qui-Gon to train Anakin, but rescinded their decision to fulfill Qui-Gon's dying wish.

Measuring in at 16 inches tall (Eva, that is), Eva & Piper join the Yummy World family for $29.99. And I'm assuming they won't spoil as quickly as most real avocados.
CryptoKaiju has launched their second batch of Ethereum Powered Vinyl Toys. These Bitcoin-themed collectibles, named Jaiantokoin, uses "tamper resistant NFC tags and is digitally unique. It’s backed by a non fungible ERC-721 token, which is the same token standard used in the highly popular virtual game, CryptoKitties. The token contains metadata which describes certain aspects of the collectible, such as its birth date, gender, colour, a description and two personality traits such as ‘intelligence’ or ‘creativity.’" (I have no idea what any of that means...)
Just 250 pieces of the new physical crypto collectibles will be available worldwide. The 5.5 inch tall collectible is made from high-quality vinyl with injection molded arms and legs for added stability. The color version - Bitcoin or Ethereum -are chosen at random. And you can purchase one for $55.00 (or whatever that is in Ethereum or Bitcoin or whatever crypto currency you're into).
