TM action Figures, TM Game maybe in 2010
11/17/09 at 01:46:01
 
Next year, DC Comics' collectible arm DC Direct will ship action figures based on Sony's Sweet Tooth and Nariko, precisely at the peak of Twisted Metal and Heavenly Sword hype.

Alright, alright, so maybe Heavenly Sword will be a nearly three-year-old PlayStation 3 game by the time this Nariko action figure ships next July. But maybe Sony and Twisted Metal co-creator David Jaffe will have a new Twisted Metal game readied for the PS3 around the same time. Then the release of a new Sweet Tooth action figure will make a lot more sense.

Details on the figures are still scant, but solicitations from DC Direct put them on course for landing at toy store shelves on July 28, 2010.

take it as you will. I could see a TM game announced by then.

so you can buy these at the stores(comic book shops), just online ,or is it unclear. O well twisted metal is (fingers crossed)coming out in the summer and I won't have school!
though I hope to god sweet tooth doesn't look like those concepts on the internet,and they better have model cars or something!
EDIT:never mind that action figure looks great, thats going to be right on my shelf next to my jason and micheal myers.

I hope this time they actually get released. Would be nice to actually hear some TM news since we havent heard anything since its first official announcement.

And I assume because the Sweet Tooth action figure is of TMB. Does that mean TMPS3 will have the same concept as TMB maybe or did they just choose to pick that model sweet tooth randomly?

Very cool. Honestly I don't think it has any bearing on the release date of TMPS3, but it's still very cool to finally see some TM figures (even if they may not of the same caliber as the ones that never came out)

I love Kotaku's humor. Definately effed that they are releasing this figurines so late and totally not when they should have... but w.e

And if anything I doubt this has anything to do with any announcement of a future TM game. That just looks like TMB sweet tooth, and we know we arent getting a TMB or TM2, we are getting something new.

Maybe an announcement at E3 (I HOPE).

great find

I think I like this version better than the Intoyz version.

I'll email Martin Mercer to see if he's involved.


EDIT: The ESP title is supposed to announce in Jan or Feb, It MIGHT be as early as Dec. Jaffe's words.

I can't wait to get my hands on 1 of these.

I get the impression that these 2 are part of a series?

Maybe other classic Sony figures will get made?

Ico, SOTC, ??

Possibilities are endless

Here's a bit more info about other figures so it looks like there'll be Ratchet and Resistance figures:

Martin Mercer just replied to my email.

He and Jaffe have confirmed that he has nothing to do with this figure and that's it's likely to be a project directed by Sony.

(Jaffe didn't even know about it he said btw).

FYI M. Mercer was the guy who did a lot of storyboard work on TMB (and SB) and the GOW series.

He also sculpted the TMB figures.

If I've got this right Stevey C. was the guy who designed some of the characters of Black and Small Brawl and I think he might have designed the Black figures...

If anyone knows better though don't hesistate to put me right.
