NYCC 2012 – Dark Horse Deluxe Goes Big With Mass Effect Reaper Replica!

Dark Horse Deluxe has announced a brand-new phase of collectibles inspired by one of the most highly decorated franchises in the history of games, Mass Effect. The first collectible to introduce this series is a limited-edition, large-scale replica of the Reaper known as Sovereign, which will be on public display at the Dark Horse booth,#1528, at New York Comic Con. Set for release on June 26, 2013, this premium replica will be offered at a retail price of $349.99.

Fans can preorder the strictly limited, 18.5” tall replica at the BioWare store today! Each piece will be individually numbered and will include an in-game bonus item for Mass Effect 3 multiplayer which can be used for the Xbox 360 and PC versions of the game. Sorry PS3 fans.

This craft is the flagship of the rogue Spectre Saren Arterius. Responsible for leading a devastating attack on the Citadel in the original Mass Effect game, Sovereign is an enormous sentient dreadnought larger than two kilometers in length. The Dark Horse re-creation of Sovereign also has a sculpted base depicting a devastated city and planetary surface to convey its huge scale.

The replica will be solicited to the trade in the Dark Horse Deluxe section of the November cover dated issue of Diamond’s Previews. While the final edition size has yet to be determined, it is certain less than 1,000 of this high-end collectible will be produced!
