PlayStation has a knack for wow-ing their fans with exclusives and gimmicks so you can only imagine our surprise when PlayStation suddenly revealed that they will be selling a special edition shoe (sneakers and street-style shoes are in-trend so it’s not rocket science that Sony and PlayStation would take their business direction that way) and launching their own brand of figurines called “Totaku”.
Nike PG-2 PlayStation Colorway
NBA’s Paul George + Nike X PlayStation is a three-way collaboration match made in heaven.
According to Paul George’s PlayStation blog post, here are some important stuff you shoulda know about this fancy Nancy shoe:
- The tongues of the shoe sport the PG and PlayStation logos, which illuminate and pulsate blue just like when turning on the console
- The back heel of the left shoe has a unique barcode that contains a PSN voucher code, which can be redeemed at PlayStation Store for a Paul George Dynamic Theme for your PS4
- The colors of the sneaker pay homage to the buttons on the DualShock 4 controller
- The iconic PlayStation symbols are embossed in patent leather on each shoe
- The look of the PG Dynamic Theme is reflected in the sock liner on each shoe
Well then, as a PS fan, colour me sold. Take my money!

According to Polygon, PlayStation is releasing their “own line (named as Totaku Collection) of figurines based on characters and franchises familiar or exclusive to the console.”
“Made by ThinkGeek (a GameStop company), the line launches with seven figurines, each about 10 centimeters (four inches) high. The figurines comprises Bloodborne’s hunter, Crash Bandicoot, Parappa the Rapper, Kratos from God of War, the Feisar FX350 racing ship from Wipeout, Sackboy from LittleBigPlanet, and Heihachi from the Tekken series.” The figurines will be available on March 23, 2018 only at GameStop for $9.99 (around RM39.10) each.
As mentioned in PlayStationLifeStyle.net, the figurines’ specifications are:
- 10cm Highly Detailed Figurines
- Series numbered – collect them all
- Non-Articulated Fixed Base
- Multiple Ways to Display
Additionally, GameSoul provides the following additional information (translation via ResetEra):
“To the delight of collectors, the very first series of Totaku will be marked with a symbol that identifies the first edition. All other copies produced will not have this mark, so the statuettes of the main draft will certainly be the rarest and most desired by fans. Each of these small figures is about 10 centimeters tall, and represents a character in one of his most iconic poses. In addition, the small base where the Totaku are supported is in the shape of a cross and can be joined to the other by interlocking, forming fun scenarios with your favorite video games characters.”
