Not specifically a "collector's edition" as much as a "collector's item", Ubisoft has revealed a highly-detailed figure of the game's main antagonist (and cult leader), The Father. And it's available to pre-order right now.
Designed by Ubicollectibles, the Joseph Seed "The Father figure will be available for collection (and purchase)
on March 22 for AUD$89.95 and given the detail of their most recent collectibles around Assassin's Creed: Origins and Mario + Rabbids: Kingdom Battle, it might be worth checking out if you're into videogame collectibles.
n order to properly embody the charismatic leader of the game, Ubicollectibles has teamed up with Ubisoft Montreal studio to create this finely-detailed 32cm PVC figurine. They have chosen to represent The Father in his iconic pose: calling to his believers to defend his project. The Father’s Calling figurine includes a removable gun from Joseph’s hand and a removable sceptre on its base.
It's an interesting move to sell a collectible outside of a CE, but could be one punters -- and eventually other publishers -- adopt given the seriously high price and pre-order pandemonium around CEs.
There's also a weird kind of irony attached to immortalising a character via effigy that feels (or is written to think) they're in the "Hey, Zeus!" camp (get it?).
