A New Ellie Statue Headlines Fresh The Last Of Us Part II Gear
PlayStation is dropping some new threads and other items in its gear store to celebrate the one year anniversary of The Last of Us Part II’s release. A post on the PlayStation Blog written by Naughty Dog’s Lead Designer of Communications Joshua Bradley runs down some of the items available as of today.
Most impressive on the list of items is one for the collectors out there. A 16” statue featuring a scowling Ellie brandishing a large bowie knife is available to order, though it won’t ship until December. The figure was created using actual in-game assets, an impressive method used to sculpt this collectible. Here’s the product details for this piece:
It’s time to head to Seattle with Ellie from The Last of Us Part II. This Ellie statue shows an angry Ellie with both hands on the machete for extra power ready to strike. Her clothes are ripped and worn but she has revenge on her mind. In-game files were used in creating Ellie (a big thank you to the Naughty Dog team) and she stands approximately 16” tall (i.e. 1:4 scale) from the bottom of the moss covered stone and dirt base to the top of her head. The Ellie statue is made using polystone resin and is skillfully hand-crafted and painted by artisans*. The Ellie statue includes deluxe, full-color packaging, a hand-numbered base and a validation card.
Ellie’s new statue is priced at $529.99 while supplies last.
Another product available today is a button-up collared short sleeve shirt with a hammer and machete icon pattern. The shirt comes in khaki or black and is selling for $79.95. Pre-orders for these snazzy shirts are set to ship around July 15, however some sizes are already backordered.
Some other items arriving in the store today include a pencil pouch with a matching pattern to the shirts above, a long-sleeve tee with the game’s logo on the left chest area, a scarf, and a leather dopp kit “for when you need that extra space for just one more health kit on your travels.” You’re probably safe to put your toothpaste and contact solution in it instead.
In case you missed it, there’s word Naughty Dog is working on a new multiplayer game! Also, check out Game Informer’s review of the The Last of Us Part II which recently received a PlayStation 5 upgrade patch increasing resolution and framerate for the next-gen console.
