Will We Ever See Battleborn Statues ?

Battleborn Merchandise Pop Toys Figures

Hey MentalMars here, personally I do like to collect game merchandise and I have a collection of merchandise of The Legend of Zelda. I got several statues from that franchise, however will we ever see Battleborn statues ? I would love to collect them because  at New York Comic Con 2016 two awesome Battleborn prototype statues where shown off.  But what happend to these statues by Pop Culture Shock Toys  ?

So let’s go back to 2016. Battleborn was looking promising as it was THE new video game from the creators of Borderlands. With the first Borderlands game Gearbox Software brought a unique game to the market that blended the FPS and RPG genre. Now the studio seemed to bring another exciting game to the market that would be genre defying. Probably because all this hype around Battleborn the team over at Pop Culture Shock Toys started  developing statues. That seemed to be a smart move as Battleborn is filled with unique and likable characters which is ideal for collectebles. Since the announcement of these statues the Battleborn community has been freaking out about these.

Sadly enough these collectebles haven’t seen a release yet. I heard a rumor that these statues never reached the production phase. Bacause while Battleborn showed a lot of potency the game sadly didn’t take off. Therefore due to the lack of success Pop Culture Shock Toys did not go beyond the prototype phase. But that’s just a rumor therefore this summer  I reached out to 2k games and Pop Culture Shock Toys with the question if there was an update on these awesome statues.  My contact at 2k Games wasn’t aware of these prototypes and was very enthousiast about them and would love to see them being made.

The update from Pop Culture Shock Toys However was a bit disappointing:

We do not have any new updates to share at this time but appreciate your interest in our BattleBorn line 🙂 –  Pop Culture Shock Toys

Personally I found this reply pretty vague therefore i contacted them again about the status of their Battleborn line and got a similar response.

As of right now I do not have any updates, I apologize. We do not have a release date, or a confirmation they are on hold. I can only recommend you keep an eye out on the newsletter for when we do have more information.
I wish I could be more help –  Pop Culture Shock Toys

I discussed these replies with a PR guy and we came to the conclusion that it  sounds like they’re probably in limbo. However i think due to the current state of the game  we won’t be seeing these statues produced anytime soon.  Luckily we still have the photos and that gave as another thing to dream of….

Photos

In the newsletter  that Pop Culture Shock Toys send out they mentioned a full line of characters. However at the  New York Comic Con 2016 only  two statues  were shown there;  Marquis from the LLC faction and an Ambra from the Jennerit faction. Apparently there was also a Toby statue in production, but since i was only able to find a render of it i think it got stuck at the concept stage and didn’t make it to the prototype stage.

Future

More recently Gearbox Software has partnered with McFarlane Toys to produce  a claptrap  collectible statue. This triggered community Badass  Lowlines to photoshop some Battleborn versions to showcase how these would look if they where produced on a similar stance. These images got picked up by Gearbox staff members and forwarded to Erica who is the licencing director at GBX. She was kind enough to respond.

As Erica stated in a follow up tweet, this isn’t a promise that stuff is coming right now. However Gearbox is always looking for opportunities for all of their franchises.  One of the examples we see of that is that we could see Duke Nukem in the movie trailer ‘Ready Player One’. And like Randy Varnell, creative director on Battleborn, mentioned on the forums .

We’re still talking a lot about the future of Battlborn, both as a product and a franchise. We believe there’s more future there. While other universes may need our attention first, I’m pretty certain we’ll return to Solus in the future. – Jythri aka Randy Varnell
