Aww. LittleBigPlanet's textured protagonist sure is adorable, right? Wrong. Behind those glassy eyes lies the cold, calculating brain of a trained killer. Behind his crude stitches sleeps the twisted, Stygian heart of a madman. We've had the impression for some time that Sackboy possessed the capa...

Can you put a price on cuteness? Collectibles retailer Entertainment Earth certainly has -- for the upcoming LittleBigPlanet Sackboy figures from Mezco Toyz. Turns out it's $34.99 for three doses of the cute stuff. The set, listed as "Wave 1" (as in "more on the way!"), is slightly different from w...

How adorable is this? It's the Prince from the 2008 Prince of Persia reboot recreated in Sackboy form. Media Molecule keeps saying that official, purchasable Sackboys are coming, but when we see stuff like this it makes the wait much harder. The two pictured above were made by craftswoman extraord...

Sackboy is one of the most recognizable video game icons out right now. No wonder that Sony wants to capitalize on the LittleBig-love by releasing new 4" action figures this Spring. In addition to the regular 4" action figures, toy developer and manufacturer, Mezco Toyz, will also release limited-...

Anyway, back then you had to buy the mag to get the instructions, but now, all you have to do is click right here. It's all than...

Or, as CVG astutely points out, you can con someone else into knitting a Sackboy for you (We'd suggest Saria the Cat, she's a knitting fiend). All the details for making your own denizen of LittleBigPlanet are in the latest Simply Knitting magazine, but we're guessing it's already on your coffee tab...

SackBoy plushies have been the object of desire for LittleBigPlanet fans for a very long time now; however, such a prized possession has yet to be made commercially available -- until now, that is. Japan is getting the official SackBoy squeeze toys this month and they're already available for purch...

Who fancies a game of "will they, won't they?" After stating that image importing from your hard drive will be coming to LittleBigPlanet at Game City Media Molecule seemed to change tact and stated yesterday that there were "currently no plans" to implement such a feature. Normally that's where th...

Sony and Media Molecule are offering their apologies to those of us along for the ride this week and will be handing out some free (and not-so-free) LittleBigPlanet DLC in the coming weeks. Next Thursday, November 6th, we can finally strap on the...

Almost two years ago, during my vigil outside the Sony Wonder Technology Lab in New York City, I awaited the chance to buy a PS3. At that time, I wasn't thinking about a game like LittleBigPlanet. In terms of future titles, my friends and I were anticipating the next Final Fantasy, the next Gra...

As cute as Old Sack and Sackiroth may be in digital form (despite being gun-toting, sword-wielding mass murderers), they're nothing in comparison to their real life counterparts. These costumed SackBoy plush dolls appeared during the public days in the LittleBigPlanet section of the Sony booth. Me...

As if yesterday's announcement of an entire God of War level theme for LittleBigPlanet wasn't enough to entice you to snap up the game day one, today Sony delivered the icing astronaut on the cake. Anyone who plays Media Molecule's platforming concoction during its first week of release will be a...
