Some of you will remember that I covered the announcement of this wonderful statue back on May 5th. Well on June 19 at 9am Hong Kong time Threezero officially opened up preorders for their 20 inch Atlas statue.

The Atlas Titan is the backbone of the IMC and MCOR armies. This statue is the best representation of that Titan. It comes with a 6 inch, fully articulated pilot armed with an R-101C Carbine. The Titan comes equipped with the XO-16 Chaingun with detachable ammo drum. However, statues purchased directly from Threezero will come with an ARC Cannon as well as the XO-16 Chaingun. This offer is exclusive to Threezero's site.

The list of features for this amazing statue are as follows:

  • model stands approximately 20 inches tall
  • incredibly detailed with over 100 points of articulation
  • 5 real pistons control the movement of the waist
  • comes with XO-16 Chaingun with removable ammo drum
  • fully operational hatch with cockpit
  • moveable armor plates on both legs and torso
  • light up feature for top part and cockpit with interchangeable red and blue lights
  • rotatable front vision ball
  • 2 side gun magazine case with fabric material
  • articulating fingers and toes
  • fully poseable 6 inch IMC Battle Rifle Pilot, which can be seated inside the cockpit
  • pilot comes with detailed armor parts, with R-101C Carbine and fabric clothing

The statue is estimated to ship during the first week of December and will sell for $430. Yes that is a good chunk of change. But if you are a collectible fan and a fan of Titanfall, this statue looks to be well worth the money. It is surely one of the most detailed and well articulated model statues I have ever seen. So head on over to Threezero and preorder you one so you can get your hands on the ARC Cannon.

ThreeZero Introduces Titanfall Atlas Figure Mon, 05 May 2014 08:35:48 -0400 onpv3rtigo1

Back in March, Hong Kong based vinyl toy manufacturer ThreeZero announced that they had acquired the license to produce figures based on Repawn's debut title Titanfall. ThreeZero has been producing vinyl figures for over 10 years now, and have also acquired the license to create figures based on AMC's The Walking Dead.

The figure chosen to debut the new toy line is the Atlas, which was recently put on display at the Thailand Toy Expo.  In the game, the Atlas represents a perfect balance between armor and mobility as well as being the first produced Titan class.  It seems fitting that it be the debut figure for this toy line.  This figure, along with its pilot, are at a 1/12 scale, which puts the pilot at 6" in height and the Atlas at around 20.5" tall.  The Titan will feature a wealth of articulation, right down to moveable fingers and cockpit access.

But is the game worthy of its own toy line?

In my opinion, the game is indeed worthy of its own line of figures, but keep a one thing in mind.

First, the figures should be of the overall quality that we are seeing here from ThreeZero in regards to size, articulation and attention to detail.  For me, I am a huge fan of Generation 1 Transformers and have been since I was a kid, when the show was first aired.  I still have all my toys from back then.  They were really high quality toys made for mainstream purchase compared to the train wrecks they make today.  Back then, they were more metal than plastic and they had actual rubber tires that were treaded and said Firestone on them. 

So unless you invest in any of the available collectors grade or Generation 1 rereleases that have been produced, the mainstream toy lines just feel cheap and thrown together.  The Titans need to have the level of quality that toys had back then or even surpass that quality, which I think they have done.

So from my experience with this kick ass game, and what I have seen of the prototype figure, I would say Titanfall is worthy of its own toy line.  The overall quality and simple coolness factor of having this Atlas sitting on my desk next to my starships and Transformers push it into the "Mommy, can I have this new toy?" category.
