Gaming collectibles maker Gaming Heads has revealed it is now taking pre-orders for its latest Mass Effect piece, a 21-inch tall (¼ scale) statue of Garrus.

Garrus Vakarian, a military trained turian and initially an investigating officer of C-Sec, joins Commander Shepard’s team in the first Mass Effect. Gaming Heads’ statue designed by artist Gurjeet Singh (via Polygon) shows Garrus in his trademark armor, armed with the Incisor Sniper rifle that is featured in the game. The package also includes the Phaeston weapon, which can be swapped depending on your preference.

This exclusive Garrus statue will cost you $350, and that’s only assuming you can get one. The statue is limited to 500 pieces worldwide. You can preorder it now, but it will only be available in the first quarter of 2015.

BioWare studio director Yanick Roy recently described the next Mass Effect game’s development status as being "somewhere in the middle."

Thought this might have been made by Sideshow coolectibles. Still looks sweet.

No thanks. Not a collector and I'm sure not having that sat in my house.

I'd rather have a custom made Femshep.

Only 500 total? What minerals do they use for these statues?

While I would love to own one of these, I'd rather put that $350 into my "new TV" fund or perhaps towards a PS4. Also, if I spent $350 on something like this, I'd have to answer to my wife, and that would not go over so well.

Well EA/BioWare have to make money on the extended DLC ending somehow don't they and one thing of this model that puzzles me is why is he holding (what looks like) a Phaeston Rifle instead of his transitional Sniper Rifle??

<< LINK REMOVED >> I doubt $175,000 would cover the cost of creating this statue, shipping it, distributing it and all that plus whatever the dev cost for the DLC was.

Pieces like this leave me scratching my head I'm afraid. I can't fathom why anyone would spend so much on a figure that's going to take up a metric sh!t-ton of space and can't be posed.

<< LINK REMOVED >> That is true, the only thing I can think of that will be a good reason to buy this is if you keep it mint condition and sell it on later.

There are a lot of Mass Effect fans, there are only 500 statues. Many of those will be opened and placed on display in people's homes or offices. If you are one of the few who keeps it sealed in a number of years it could be worth quite a nice packet.

<< LINK REMOVED >> Why not? People buy art of other kinds, why is this apparently so sick and wrong?

<< LINK REMOVED >> If they have tons of money and a large living area, and they like the pose it's already in, then the answer should be obvious. I mean, there are people who own a life-size Big Daddy (Bioshock) for gods' sake.

<< LINK REMOVED >> I can't either, but someone is always willing to spend it. They have to make money for their shortcomings somehow.

I've got the Play Arts Kai versions of both FemShep and Garrus. I'm gonna pass on this one. Can't justify the $350 price tag.

I own tons of statues/figures, but only a few have cost me a bit more than $100 each, would never spend this much on one. I've got the Bishoujo Female Shephard figure that's really cool, would like the Bishoujo Liara figure as well but due to it being OOP all the sellers are charging way too much for it, hopefully it gets re-printed sometime.

Collectibles are supposed to be collected by collectors... They should make half as much of these as they sold ME games, so everybody can get one, not just a few privileged folk...
