Videogame Collectibles to Look Out For: Resident Evil & Zelda

There are so many video game-based collectible figurines being put up on sale today, you might as well call it "Video Game Character Figurines Day". It's a little bit lame, but I trust that the following collectible figurines based on characters from popular franchises such as Resident Evil and The Legend of Zelda will leave you desiring one, or two.

First up, Resident Evil. Gaya Entertainment has released an official Resident Evil - The Umbrella Chronicles statue based on the Tyrant. This 1/6 scale poly resin statue is hand-painted and is released in limited quantity, exactly 1500 of them, worldwide. It's now in stock at Play-Asia. Click here for further details.

Coming up in February 2008 will be the rest of the Umbrella Chronicles collection, featuring Jill Valentine, Chris Redfield and William Birkin (in all his mutated glory).

Next up would be The Legend of Zelda. Besides releasing that statue of Metroid Prime's Samus Aran, First4Figures also came up with a statue of the Skull Kid from The Legend of Zelda: Majora's Mask. Just like the Samus Aran statue, this is a limited edition release with 2,500 worldwide. This hand casted and hand painted figurine also comes with an Authencity Card.

The Skull Kid is available at Play-Asia at a discounted price of USD 79.90, 20 dollars off the list price of USD 99.90. Click here for further details.
