Recently, the sculpting adolescents over at hyperchild proudly announced that they're working on officially licensed Mass Effect statues that are set to release throughout 2008. The first of these polyresin statues to be released will be none other than box art poster man Commander Shepard who, we must say, is quite the charmer. The Shepard statue will release in February 2008, be eight inches tall, limited to only 2,500 pieces, hand numbered and command a collector's price of $89. And, since these are statues and not action figures they're for display purposes only and can not be articulated or played with. Unless you want to bang him up against your Big Daddy, but that's not our idea of fun. You can pre-order the Mass Effect Commander Shepard statue exclusively at HighDome and you can stay up to date on its production over at the Digital Ritalin blog. Sorry Mr. McFarlane, you can't touch these.
