GameStop to sell Sony PlayStation figurine toyline
With the rampant success of Nintendo's amiibo toys, it appears that Sony is trying to slightly capitalize on the trend. Revealed via a GAME Espana video, it showcases six figurines from major Sony IPs, such as Crash Bandicoot, Bloodborne's Hunter, Sackboy from LittleBigPlanet, Wipeout, Parappa the Rapper, and Heihachi Mishima from Tekken 7. These figures will release on March 23, 2018 exclusively at GAME/Gamestop, will be manufactured by their subsidiary "ThinkGeek" and toymaker "Totaku", and will retail for $9.99 each. Unlike amiibo, however, these will not serve any function ingame, and are merely for collection purposes. A Kratos figure will also release later this year.
