Evolve Looks Good, But Is It $750 Statue Good?

Evolve Looks Good, But Is It $US750 Statue Good?

Everybody loves 2K Games' upcoming competitive monster shooter Evolve, but do they love it enough to start paying off a 76cm tall, 16kg polystone statue of the game's Goliath?

As lovely as the Goliath statue from TriForce is, it's an incredibly hard sell for me. I can see shelling out big bucks for a piece of sculpted art based on the next Zelda or Elder Scrolls game — those are tried and tested series, and even if the next instalments flop, the work will still be a piece of that history.

Evolve, on the other hand, is something new. Something untested. Something that's slipped to February 2015 for further polish. I don't know if I'd invest in it just yet, even if Goliath does have LED's embedded in his eyeballs.

TriForce is now accepting preorders for the Goliath statue. It's limited to 500 pieces, but with a non-refundable down-payment of $US187.50 and shipping costs for the massive piece that won't be determined until the second quarter 2015 fulfillment date, you've likely got several months to mull it over.

That is, unless you want the incredibly limited Savage Goliath variant, only available for preorder at next weekend's New York Comic Con.

Featuring a red accented skin emulating the look of the skin players get for preordering the game, the Savage Goliath is limited to 150 pieces and can only be preordered for $US800 at NYCC. Too rich for my blood!


    The statue is awesome, and massive, but $750 is just too much coin.

    Or if you have access to a 3D printer you can download the model file from the game website (http://evolvegame.com/about/monsters/goliath). Then you get to paint it yourself which is honestly totally worth it and fun!

    Wow. Heh, I have trouble paying for sub-$200 collector's editions that contain figures.
    Different strokes indeed.

    Just having a hard time seeing what's worth 750 there...

    Pretty cool statue but I nope out at $750.

    It doesn't matter how valuable they tell me it is.

    Licensed King Kong or Godzilla dlc maybe?

    Get someone to do a 0.01mm 3d scan of this thing. Then print them at 0.1-0.01 resolution on a ultimaker 2 with black resin. Will work out allot cheaper. However unsure if you can print 75cm tall in those machines, can always scale down or make base separate to fit in printer.

    Then for the savage version, get red paint. hehe.
