UPDATED 16 – October – 2016
Hideo Kojima, just announced on his Twitter account that the Ludens character will get his own figure forms soon. The exact dates are not yet confirmed but we do get to see the prototypes of the figures.
Hideo showed us the following pictures of the prototype figures (+ some additional pictures taken along the way).
1000Toys is currently working on a 1/6 Ludens figure, that will have a lightup feature. The price and if this figure will feature full articulation is not yet known, so stay tuned for that.
The next interesting figure is the Yoji Shinkawa original body base (also 1/6 scale) that was shown at BAIT. I assume this is how Yoji originally imagined the Ludens character, so it’s nice to see that coming our way as well.
There is also great figure of Ludens coming in 1/12 scale, made by Figma. Personally this is my most anticipated version since we currently don’t know what role this character will play in a future project of Kojima and I just like 6″ figures.
We’re not even sure if he has anything to do with the upcoming Death Stranding game, but it sure will play a big role in Kojima Productions’s future.
Last but not least is Nendroid’s take on the Ludens character. This is of course a more cute version instead of a realistic one. THe interesting thing here is that the prototype is already painted so we get a better idea of what Ludens’s color scheme is.
Is there anything I missed or something you want to know/see more about?
