Last week, we brought you news about Gaming Heads and Valve's partnership to produce items based on Valve's franchises, starting with Team Fortress 2's Heavy. Lovingly described by the Scout as a "big shaved bear that hates people," the Heavy is very well captured in this 12-inch polsytone statue, with Gaming Heads using the actual game files to recreate the character. He comes equipped with his gun, Sasha, ad the exclusive variant includes an extra head along with an attachment that turns Sasha into Natascha, his alternate weapon from TF2's Heavy Update.I'm only a bit sad the delicious Sandvich is not included with either figure.
And of course, it all comes down to one thing: how much does our large gun-toting friend cost? US$229.99 will get you the basic RED or BLU Heavy, while for the exclusive version, you'll have to shell out US$244.99. Preorders for RED and BLU regular and RED and BLU exclusive Heavy statues are open now, with the regular statues capped at 750 pieces each and the exclusive statues at 300 pieces each. Both are set to release in Q4 2010.
The site is incredibly slow, as it's probably being crushed by people trying to get a look at the statue or preorder one. It's first come, first served, so act quickly!
