Pre-orders are open ahead of an August 2020 release
If I wanted to get a Death Stranding figure, I’d fork over way too much money for the Jumbo Ludens. That thing is a beast! But Good Smile Company also has a more traditional Nendoroid coming later this year for the game’s stoic protagonist Sam Porter Bridges, and the toy is charming in its own right.
For starters, the cutie comes with a miniature BB, to say nothing of the even smaller Cryptobiote snack. I also appreciate that the Odradek – the flapping scanner device designed to help Sam scout out ghostly BTs – has “several points of articulation,” so it can be posed for maximum dramatic effect.
That said, they’re saving the best stuff for the deluxe Great Deliverer figure.
The Deluxe Ver. includes 21 cargo cases of varying value.
That’s right – this Nendoroid can carry a ridiculous cargo stack, just like in Death Stranding.
The standard Nendoroid Sam Porter Bridges costs $49.99, while the Great Deliverer Version commands a steep $83.99 price tag. Good Smile Company is taking pre-orders and expects to ship in August 2020.
I’m trying to be extra frugal right now, but this at least deserves a “like.”
