I am a huge fan of the Mass Effect franchise, and not just because it has blue cleavage in it. The games have been super cool, and I think I spent as much time mining stuff and building my ship as I did fighting bad guys.
iam8bit recently concluded Postcards from Space, an art exhibition featuring postcards for fictional locations from books, comics, video games, toys and sci-fi and fantasy shows and movies. Fortunately those of us who didn’t make it to the exhibit can get copies of the postcards from iam8bit’s online store.
Each of the 39 postcards measures 6″x 4″ and has imagery from a different artist.
There are hundreds if not thousands of stores and galleries that host fan art. But if you’re looking for prints of official video game art and concept art Cook & Becker should be on your list of stores to visit.
Cook & Becker collaborates with artists, developers and studios that own the rights to the art so that it can make them available as prints at reasonable prices.
Blue tentacles for hair aside Liara is one of the hottest characters in the Mass Effect world. If you are unfamiliar with Mass Effect, shame on you. This is one of the coolest sci-fi game properties out there.
As someone who’s never owned a Windows computer or any gaming computer for that matter, I was very surprised when I found out that the Mass Effect games for Windows never launched with and still don’t have native controller support.
Impress your party members with TriForce’s officially licensed life-size replica of the Scorpion, the powerful heavy pistol from Mass Effect 3 that lobs explosive goo. Just know that its price puts the salary in Salarian.
The replica is 14″ long and 8″ high and weighs a crazy 10 pounds because it’s cast in polystone.
This toy must have gone straight from April Fools’ joke to something that’s actually doable and profitable. Sanshee’s officially licensed My Talking Elcor plush sounds just like its video game counterpart: a cyborg Eeyore.
In case you’re not familiar with the elcor, they’re one of the alien races that feature prominently in the Mass Effect universe.
Gentlemen, check this out. It’s a 100% accurate replica of a Geth Pulse Rifle from Mass Effect 3. It’s awesome and is a full-scale replica of the in-game weapon. It has LED lights and weighs in at a whopping 20 pounds.
You can easily find replicas of the leather jacket that male Commander Shepard wears during off days in Mass Effect 3. But this April BioWare is going to release an official and limited edition of the casual wear.
With a new generation of consoles we can look forward to games from the last generation getting some remastered versions. And one of the better franchises that showed up last gen are the Mass Effect games.
It’s never too early to get your child into video games. You could seat them beside you as you play, dress them up like your favorite video game characters, even create flash cards that teach them about games and heroes.
Remember the awesome fan-designed Mass Effect hoodies that BioWare was going to turn into real clothing? These are not those hoodies. But they’re still worth checking out because they’re reversible, which means you’re getting two designs for the price of one.
If you’re a big fan of the Mass Effect franchise, you’ll undoubtedly remember the M-6 Carnifex pistol. We’ve seen some really cool replicas of weapons from the video game in the past, like the N7 rifle replica, but you couldn’t buy that particular replica.
Black Milk Clothing’s combination of body hugging fit and geeky coating has been a winning formula so far. A lot of people love (being seen) wearing them. Even more people love looking at their product shots.
Fans of the Mass Effect franchise of games will love this life-sized version of Jack. The details are every bit as impressive as the character on screen. It’s even more impressive when you consider that she is 3D and made primarily of paper.
