Earlier this year, it was discovered via a new list of upcoming figures that Totaku would be making a more Crash Bandicoot Totaku figures, including Spyro and a separate upcoming Trilogy Pack, all coming later this year and more.
As of Friday, however, this has been put to rest thanks to Totaku confirming the existence of the Spyro the Dragon #33 Totaku figure, coming this September 21 to coincide with the Reignited Trilogy’s release to GameStop, EB Games, GAME UK and all other associated stores.
It looks like more merchandise from Trends International (Sandylion) will be rolling out to stores, as a new listing from a stickers seller on eBay has just put up a “Stickers by the Roll” Party Favors collection of 5 stickers (4 of each sticker shown on the listing’s image, plus a random fifth one) from the total set of 25 stickers roll.
Each is 2.5″ x 2.5″ on a square aspect ratio and has the more unique illustrations and renders used in GB Eye’s merchandise of posters and mugs.
First found by Bitmap, thanks for the tip.
It was revealed earlier this year that Pyramid International would be part of the new lineup of merchandise licensees for Crash Bandicoot and Spyro the Dragon at the Las Vegas Expo in May and reconfirmed their involvement again later in July, wonder what will they be doing with the Crash license?
Well, apparently, 4 out of the 5 listed prints are already available according to the site, if they happen to be more easily obtainable in stores like Walmart and Target. The thing is that we’ve heard no reports from fans or people alike who happen to find any of these prints or canvases in the wild, especially in North America. But enough of that for the time being, let’s get around what each of these posters are (None of them are using any new render or illustration for that matter):
The first item, dubbed “Next Gen Bandicoot” referring to the current look of Crash Bandicoot as of N. Sane Trilogy, is a maxi poster, which is supposedly coming this Thursday and will roll out to more places afterwards. The second item is a “throwback” item dubbed the “1996” Canvas Print, using the White and Orange to Yellow gradient illustration of Crash’s head alongside the “Crash” and “Bandicoot” stylized with different fonts with two Wumpas and the year the original game debuted. The third, fourth and fifth items are framed and mounted 30x40m prints that’s using the same illustration from that GB Eye mounted print that we saw last time.
That’s all there is for now, you can check the whole brand page via [this link].
In other news: More Crash Nitro Kart concept arts has been discovered.
If you have been interested in getting a travel case/pouch for your Nintendo Switch, you can get this PowerA “Protect Kit” from Argos UK for £19.99 GBP and have a somewhat complete set of Crash Bandicoot themed items officially licensed by Activision for your Nintendo Switch alongside the controller and the game.
This case includes earbuds with inline mic, screen protector with applicator, and custom cleaning cloth. It even has a built-in kickstand for tabletop mode alongside storage for 5 game cards, all protected in a mesh layer. And to top it off, it has the same cyan blue design from the Nintendo Switch Crash Controller from PowerA.
It was revealed earlier by Activision around the month of May that “Just Toys” would be joining the list of new licensing partners that would begin making merchandise for Crash Bandicoot. It has been revealed a few days ago in the case of Spyro the Dragon that they will also be doing those, although the Abysse Corp listing reveals that it’s not the final actual look for the backpack hangers, unlike the Crash Bandicoot ones.
Regardless, they do look well made and could be compelling depending on the price and spread for where they will be sold on store shelves. Sadly, no price or even a proper release date listed yet for either sets, although if a guess had to be estimated, then it could come soon when Spyro Reignited Trilogy drops on September 21, 2018.
Crash Bandicoot’s collection set of backpack hangers features 4 different variations of Crash with Fingers, Thump, Surprise and Aku Aku. The other ones consist of Coco Bandicoot, Neo Cortex, Aku Aku and Uka Uka. Spyro the Dragon’s collection set of backpack hangers from the preview picture features just 7 out of the 8 hangers, with 3 different variations of Spyro with his flying, standing and preparing poses. The other ones consist of a burnt Sheep, a normal Sheep, Ripto and Ninja Rhynocs.
That’s all for now. Stay tuned for more updates and if there’s any corrections or suggestions that need to be made, let me know.
Thanks a ton for sugarypixel for the Spyro tip.
