Despite Bloodborne being released over two years ago, there is still some awesome merch on its way.
After originally being announced at the beginning of the year, Figma’s Bloodborne Hunter figurine is now available to pre-order, with a release date set for May next year.
In case you’re now wondering what a ‘Figma’ is, here’s what to know – Figma is a series of action figures modelled after various characters from video games, movies, anime, TV shows and more. The basic goal is to make incredibly detailed figurines that can also be articulated in as many ways as possible. Where applicable, the figures will also come with a slew of accessories and replacement parts.
The way Figma figures work is that the company will announce a new and upcoming model, let pre-orders go live, close said pre-orders, manufacture enough units to cover the pre-orders, then call it a day. The figures, as a result, are pre-order only and thus, limited edition.
Over the years, Figma has created renditions of fan-favourite characters including Solid Snake from Metal Gear Solid and Pyramid Head from Silent Hill. Add to that the ‘limited’ nature of the figures and you have yourselves a bonafide collector’s item.
This latest creation depicts the Male ‘Hunter’ character from Bloodborne (as shown on the game’s box art) with a blunderbuss and saw-blade to complete the look. The saw-blade, by the way, does, in fact, extend, too. Neat.
Pre-orders are live now and set to close on October 17, so you have until then to decide whether you want one of these before they’re gone for good. The standard version will set you back £52.88 / $69.99 while the Exclusive edition costs £86.88 / $114.99. It’s worth noting here that the only difference between the standard and Exclusive editions is the inclusion of the extra Messengers figurine.
