A week ago, I finally purchased a PS3 Slim. Along with the console, one of the games I picked up was Ratchet & Clank Future: Tools of Destruction – a game that (besides Uncharted 2: Among Thieves) pretty much justified my PS3 purchase.
So you can well imagine the raging jealousy I experienced after discovering these kick-ass Ratchet & Clank vinyl toys exist, but are not yet (and possibly won’t ever be) available to the public.
These vinyl renditions of Captain Quark, Ratchet, and Clank were made by Insomniac Games character artists Dave Guertin and Greg Baldwin, who also run a little website called “Creature Box” where they post various character and comic art they create – presumably off company time.
Recently, in the spirit of looming holidays and employee gift giving, they decided to take their artwork three-dimensional and collaborated with Gentle Giant to make a series of a number of these Ratchet & Clank vinyl sculptures for the good folks at Insomniac Games. Color me jealous!
Unfortunately, according to their blog post Dave and Greg are “Not sure if these will ever be released to the public, for now they are just for employees.”
Insert frowny face.
