From the PS3 Game of the Year: LittleBigPlanet
When it comes to video games, there have been some pretty cool icons over the years – from Mario and Pac Man to Lara Croft, Sonic the Hedgehog and Crash Bandicoot. But now, thanks to the creative geniuses at Sony, an unlikely new character has gatecrashed the party, and his name is Sackboy
Hero of the multi award-winning
puzzle/platformer LittleBigPlanet, Sackboy is the customisable thingamajig hell-bent on exploring the wonderfully rendered universe within the game. But you already knew that. What you might not know is that Sackboy has escaped his pixellated confines in order to take on the real world, thanks to this officially licensed
6” or 3” posable figure.
(From L-R) The 3" and 6" original Sackboy figures
An ideal gift for gaming geeks eager to show their appreciation for a Sony superstar, this high quality figure has posable arms and legs, and will happily sit on your desktop or PS3 striking various poses from the game.
You can even put him in your pocket and give his faux sackcloth body a stroke whenever you’re suffering from LittleBigPlanet withdrawal symptoms (ie: every minute of every day).
Geek–up your bookshelf!
As the first ever collectable figure from LittleBigPlanet, Sackboy is sure to generate plenty of envious looks from fellow players. Indeed this cute little chappie is so popular in pixellated form he’s even made guest appearances in other games such as Everybody’s Golf and Rag Doll Kung Fu: Fists of Plastic. As you do.
In all honesty we think Sackboy is worth buying even if your last foray into video gaming involved smashing barrels with a comedy mallet (you know who you are). So get ordering before this material boy scarpers out of our stockroom for good.
