SYMBIOTE STUDIOS TO MAKE WARFRAME® TOYS AND STATUES
Limited Edition Excalibur Statue Available At QuakeCon and Comic-Con
Seattle, WA (July 15, 2014) -- Symbiote Studios LLC, a leading manufacturer and distributor of a broad range of toys and high-end collectibles, has obtained the rights to create stylized vinyl toys and high-end statues based on Digital Extremes’ hit video game franchise, Warframe®.
"As big fans of the game we are excited to bring the Tenno warriors of Warframe alive with toys and statues," said Joseph Reiter, CEO of Symbiote Studios. "Warframe is the future of gaming and we are honored to be able to create products fans will love."
“The character design in Warframe begs to be made into collectible statues and toys,” said Meridith Braun, VP Publishing at Digital Extremes. “The team at Symbiote approached us with such passion for Warframe that we knew they would be the perfect choice to start a line of high-quality collectible statues for us and they have certainly delivered. The Excalibur statue is impressively detailed and will certainly be a standout on any collector’s shelf.”
First in the line is a Limited Edition Collector’s Statue of the very popular Warframe -- Excalibur. Made of high-quality poly-resin and hand painted to the finest detail, Excalibur stands over eight inches tall and is fully equipped with his signature Skana Blade in hand, an Aklato Pistol on each hip and the Latron Rifle holstered on his back.
Fans attending QuakeCon 2014 (July 17-20) and San Diego Comic-Con 2014 (July 24-27) will have the first chance to own Excalibur in this Limited Edition run of only 1000. Visit the Symbiote Studios booth at either show to purchase the statue at the special conference price of $69.99.
Those unable to attend the shows may pre-order the statue for $79.99 online now while quantities last via the Official Warframe Merch Store at http://store.warframe.com. Expected ship date for the statues is late August.
