PlayStation is launching a 'Totaku' figurine line

Sony Is Getting Their Own Collectible Figurines with Totaku

Coming from Think Geek is the new Totaku Collection, a series of figurines that feature prominent characters from PlayStation franchises. Kratos, Crash Bandicoot, Sackboy, Heihachi, Parappa the Rapper, Hunter, and a Wipeout ship are now available for preorder, priced at $9.99 each. If you're a hardcore PlayStation gamer (a Sony Pony?) you're going to want to prove your loyalty to the company by snatching up the whole line.

There is no reason to own the Totaku figures beyond actually liking the characters.

Each figure is 10cm (four-inches) tall, promises to be highly-detailed, but can not be articulated.

However, unlike Amiibo the Totaku don't appear to have any extra NFC (near field communication) functionality, meaning you won't be waving little Kratos over top of your PS4 Dualshock to have bonus items drop from the sky as in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.

These figures aren't interactive like the popular Nintendo amiibo figures, but they do look very similar in design. The figurines are fixed to their stand and non-articulable, so they're collectibles only. The figures will be named Totaku and will run you about $9.99 United States dollars per figurine. The series launches on March 23, 2018 and they're only available through GameStop. In the U.S., it looks as though GameStop will be the only place to grab them. If the Totaku figures are successful, perhaps Sony will eventually release more.
