Besthesda, or should we say Microsoft now, has been recently showing some love to the often neglected Fallout: New Vegas. Last month it released a wearable helmet based on the NCR Desert Ranger, and now there’s a Brotherhood of Steel statue.
Despite having “steel” right there in its name and the very intentional bronze colouring, this is made of resin, or “polyresin” to be exact going by the listing.
These statues are made by a company called Development Plus Inc. but are sold by Bethesda directly in an 800 limited edition run.
The store page here has pre-orders open for an estimated ship date of October 2021.
The polyresin statue is 14.5 X 11 X 21.5 centimetres (length X width X height) and, at the time of writing, is still available for sale at $70 (~R995).
The aforementioned wearable helmet sold out almost instantly so there seems to be less love for this product as it went on sale a few hours ago at the time of writing.
“This statue commemorates all who fought for the glory of the Brotherhood of Steel. It depicts a member of the Brotherhood’s infantry, wearing a highly-detailed recon armor, which was first introduced in Steel Dawn,” reads the official description.
“Literally and figuratively, it is a symbol of cutting your enemies to pieces and trampling them underfoot. This feat is made possible by the faction’s Plasma Cutter in the figure’s left hand and the devastating might symbolized by the flag in its right hand,” the description continues.
As for that bronze colouring it’s meant to “evoke the dignified look of monuments”. We understand that, at the price this is being sold at there’s no way it could have been actual bronze or any real metal, but we wish it had been.
Maybe a smaller version or a higher price would have made this more collectible.
