Kotobukiya Shadow of the Colossus Statues

Several years ago, Kotobukiya (a manufacturer of high-end, pop-culture statues) released a beautiful statue inspired by the classic game Shadow of the Colossus. The statue depicts the game’s protagonist, Wander, as he valiantly confronts the game’s first colossus.

The statue has become tremendously rare and highly coveted. It seems, however, that the just released HD remastered ICO/Shadow of the Colossus game has brought a couple of these statues out of the wood work and on to eBay.
This statue is very fragile and it is quite common to find them with some type of imperfection. It is therefore not surprising to find that each one of the three statues currently on eBay are damaged.

Despite the damage though, one of the listings is at nearly $250. This high price for a damaged product speaks to the lengths that some collectors will go to in order to own one. It’ll be interesting to see just how high they all end at.

See all three listings here.

  1. I was lucky enough to get one of these two years ago for the low, low price of $16. A large seller (Newbury Comics) listed it with a stock photo and listed its condition as damaged. They didn’t answer my questions when I asked about what kind of damage it had. So I thought I’d take a chance on it. When it arrived, it was perfect. Aside from that, I bought it when the game wasn’t being discussed much anymore, which kept the price low.

  2. Wow! I feel honoured, that’s my pic you got there lol. Whish I didn’t sell mine now, can’t find it anywhere these days, it’s like gold dust 🙁
