Kojima Products is Getting a Limited Edition Statue

Morgan is a writer, gamer, photographer, and heavy metal enthusiast. Her passion for gaming encompasses both AAA and indie, with a heavy focus on the latter. As AllGamers' resident indie expert, you can expect her to wax poetic about all the latest and greatest indie titles whenever the opportunity arises. 

Morgan's typical day includes an indie gaming marathon and several large cups of coffee. Even on the weekend, you can often find her perched in front of the computer browsing through Steam's new releases. Her current platform of choice is PC, but having grown up with Nintendo, she also has a soft spot for the Switch (especially thanks to its ever-expanding catalogue of indies). 

If you’d like to get in touch with Morgan, you can reach out to her via email or follow her on Twitter.

Why you should jump on the opportunity to buy this statue if you have the chance.

Hideo Kojima’s new indie company, Kojima Productions, is getting its own real-world statue in the shape of the company’s mascot, Ludens. Recently, Prime 1 Studio and Kojima Productions announced that a ½ scale statue of Ludens (approximately 63 inches tall) will be up for grabs, complete with its own EVA suit and flag with the official Kojima Productions logo. In addition, each statue will be personally signed by Kojima himself!

This is a special opportunity for Kojima fans, one which should be jumped on as soon as possible as there are only 150 limited edition copies available for purchase. Meaning that when it’s gone, it’s gone for good. Anyone looking to get their hands on the statue will have to fork up a pretty penny, as the large statues cost $2,000 a piece.

The statues are currently available for pre-order, though they won’t be shipped out until sometime between January and March of 2018. Despite the significant wait, many feel it’s worth it simply for the opportunity to own an authentic piece of Kojima history. Whether or not Kojima Productions will offer up other merchandise in the future remains to be seen. We certainly hope this is the case, as $2,000 is a bit outside our price range.
