Not to be out done by the Halo 3 and Gears of War action figures of the world, the sculpting crew over at Hyperchild have just released a teaser shot (seen above) of their near complete Mass Effect Commander Shepard statue. If you recall, this is the same $89 statue we mentioned back in November, but now fully painted and finalized for production. And even though Hyperchild has yet to do a big unveil, you can check out pictures of the final sculpt (minus the pretty paint job) in their fourth figure update right here. All in all, we'll admit the figure looks sexy enough, but the high price tag will probably prevent us from owning one. How we see it, we could totally purchase six Halo 3 or Gears action figures for the price of one Shepard and that's kind of tough to accept.
