Default New Nathan Drake statue!

Hey Gang,

I know it's been mentioned in a couple threads,but I'm hoping you won't mind me giving it a thread of its own. I was pleased to debut our newest statue in the PlayStation Collectibles line over last weekend at the PSX event in Anaheim. This is the first of several statues that I'm working on. I was really lucky to have the full cooperation of the Naughty Dog art teams on this one. They have reviewed the prototype, and with the exception of a few paint changes, they were extremely happy with it. Once we make the changes (the molle straps and other parts need to be matte, he's missing his watch because we didn't have the model in time, his ring is painted on, but we just got the model for that too, etc) and get some new photographs taken, we'll replace the shots on the Gear Store and Sideshow sites. However, since I know any of you want to see what it looks like from different angles, here's a couple shots of the prototype before the paint changes.

Thanks,
Gary

It's awesome Gary! Love the pose.

Does anyone know what I should expect to pay for international shipping from Sideshow?

Thanks! Was not able to find a quote for shipping, it's probably not possible for Sideshow to know before they get the statue.

To Canada, I think the last 1/4 statue I got from there shipping was in the regular ~$70-100 range. The problem with sideshow is the fees at the door...last time it was like $120 for a ~$450 statue. I try to avoid them if possible.

Damn, thanks for the tip. Think it would be delivered to the post office here, as that is what normally happens. Is those fees you had to pay normal post office fees and import fees?

Calculated it and seems like it would be around $150 here. So with shipping and price of statue, it would be $600, which is pretty crazy. But it's kind of my only alternative..

Dear Gary,

Could you please tell us something more about the material of the statue?
Is it gonna be a full polystone/resin statue? Will it have some PVC/plastic parts?

Again, thanks for this wonderful piece of art.

Hi Comatose,

The original plan was to make it all Polystone, but I'm thinking we need to go mixed media on this one. Parts like the Shoreline soldier tactical gear and Drake's holster/gun/pouch just look so much cooler as separate pieces. However, as they are very small and thin, they would have to be injection molded ABS or PVC. Since I've already set the msrp, I'd have to absorb the tooling costs but I'm willing to make less money on these to push the quality bar. Naughty Dog LOVES this statue, BTW, and they are not easy to please. ;-)

Gary
