Pre-Order Square Enix Play Arts Kai MASS EFFECT!?

After recently extolling the virtues of the super flexible (and guitar thrashing) Play Arts Kai Arkham Asylum Batman consider me well and truly fist-pumped to discover that they are releasing not one, not two, not seventeen, but THREE new figures from the brilliant Mass Effect. Super articulated Mass Effect characters with multiple weapons and exchangeable hands? Holy crap. How long have you known about these? Why doesn't anybody tell me anything?

Garrus is a wonderful choice and is going to look super badass swinging around his rifle (and rocking out on the guitar). The Big Fish Mass Effect figures were cool, but lacked the articulation and flexibility that these do (although of course you'll be paying three times more for the privilege). This is a solid Commander Shepherd but you should know by now that I am FemShep all the way and would far prefer her. Ashley Williams looks great but is a pretty soft choice (half of Mass Effect 2 and 3 players won't even have her in their game!). Surely Miranda or Liara would have been a no-brainer. Still, I'll definitely pick up Garrus, and will probably be tempted by one of the others.

They hit later this year but you can pre-order them already at Sideshow:
Square Enix Garrus Vakarian Mass Effect 3 - Play Arts Kai (Square Enix)
Square Enix Commander Shepard Mass Effect 3 - Play Arts Kai (Square Enix) Square Enix Ashley Williams Mass Effect 3 - Play Arts Kai (Square Enix)
