Little Big Planet Figures

sackboy-figures

Over on the Playstation Blog they’ve announced a series of 4″ SackBoy figures. Word is, that the figures will come in a variety of costumes available though it doesn’t look like you’d be able to mix and match the costume pieces, so thats a shame. There will also be a series of 2″ – 18″ retailer exclusive SackBoy figures but its unclear how exactly these will differ from the normal releases aside from size.

The Blog also mentions that knit versions are on the way, too, but they dont offer any other info about those.

Oh My God. Full Extent of LBP MGS Level Pack. 12/24

OK, so we knew about the 4 MGS costumes including Meryl, Raiden, Screaming Mantis, and Snake. These costumes are going to be $1.99 a piece or $5.99 for all 4 of them in a bundle.

Over on the Playstation Blog they just posted a video that details everything that the level pack will come with. In addition to 5 new story levels it the level pack ($5.99) comes with The Paintinator, 12 new trophies, stickers (72), materials (12), decorations (10), and objects (18) and:

  • 1 new background music track
  • 3 new interactive music tracks
  • a paint switch
  • 1 new Metal Gear Solid themed ‘sound object’
  • New Plasma Ball ‘danger element’
  • New Laser Sight ‘gadget’
  • New functioning Searchlight lamp – for those special ‘exclamation mark’ moments

Finally you get to play as Raiden!

mgslbpThough he is a bit stumpy this time. The Hong Kong PSN store leaked that there are 4 MGS costumes coming to LittleBigPlanet along with a “Level Pack” containing stickers and objects based on Metal Gear. Among the costumes you get Snake, Meryl, Screaming Mantis, and Raiden. On the website they dont have Raiden listed seperately, so maybe he only comes with the bundle?

If they change sackboy’s idle animation to punch his back when dressed as old snake (what snake does when his back starts bothering him from being crouched over) that would be hilarous. Please MM, make it so.
