E3 08: Spore figures spotted at E3

While the quality of these pictures is not up to the usual standards we hold dear at Tomopop, I thought all of you might enjoy a sneak peek at these custom Spore figures we saw at E3 in the EA meeting room. Standing about 6 inches tall each, the figures were created just for E3. Of course, I couldn’t help but wonder if gamers would like to have the creatures they make in Spore immortalized in toy form as well, so I skipped off to ask an official EA spokesperson.

Luckily, my curiousity paid off — EA confirmed that there will be toys available in the future, although there were no dates or prices available. Hopefully you will be able to make the creatures you create in the game, the way you can with your World of Warcraft characters. However, it’s likely that they will be equally as expensive, considering that they would be custom pieces. Would you buy one? From the looks of these, they could be worth the extra cash.
