MASSive Reaper: Dark Horse Ups the Ante

Over the last several months my Toy Fair sneak peek showcasing Dark Horse’s Mass Effect Reaper Replica has been bringing in lots of looks and questions as to when it would become available, actual size and pricing.

As of today the company has announced a rethink on the original collectible (which was about 8 inches tall.) According to DH’s press release the revamped Reaper will measure a whopping 18.5 inches.

Dark Horse says, “This craft is the flagship of the rogue Spectre Saren Arterius. Responsible for leading a devastating attack on the Citadel in the original Mass Effect game, Sovereign is an enormous sentient dreadnought larger than two kilometers in length. The Dark Horse re-creation of Sovereign also has a sculpted base depicting a devastated city and planetary surface to convey its huge scale.”

It will be limited to a numbered edition of no more than 1000 and include exclusive multi-player in-game bonus (only for XBox 360 and PC versions of Mass Effect 3.) The high end collectible carries a price of $349.00 and is expected to hit th market by June 2013.

You can put a pre-order deposit of $100.00 on it at the BioWare store.

Mass Effect Reaper Replica from Dark Horse Comics

More exciting news from the absolutely amazing 2012 American International Toy Fair. Here’s a quick note to alert Mass Effect franchise fans about Dark Horse Comics‘ upcoming Reaper replica. While I was visiting their booth to get a peak at the new line of “Good Luck Trolls” (“Wishniks” to those my vintage), Dark Horse’s V.P. of Product Development, David Scroggy, gave me the OK to shoot some first-look photos of their Mass Effect Reaper replica just cleared for licensing. As you can see from this prototype, collectors will be treated to an exceptionally detailed rendering of these bio-mechanical starships.

Thanks so much to David and Chris G., Product Development Manager, for taking time out from what is essentially a sales event to give me a look at some of the incredible new items to come from the company. Check back soon for more information and photos of Dark Horse’s newest collectibles.
