In 1996, the original PlayStation received one of its most iconic games in Crash Bandicoot. The game was a 3D platformer that Sony hoped would be their Mario 64. While it never achieved the acclaim of Nintendo’s now legendary game, Crash Bandicoot became a staple on the PlayStation, launching multiple sequels and spinoffs, and eventually landing on additional game systems. Last year, Activision brought the Bandicoot to modern systems with the release of Crash Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy. This was a complete remaster of the original three games, giving them each a gorgeous visual overhaul while still keeping the challenging platforming of the now classic games. As with anything new, licensed merchandise was soon to follow.
A series of Crash Bandicoot Action Figures are being released by NECA. The first figure, a basic release featuring Crash himself, is in stores now. Coming soon are three additional deluxe versions. One features a jetpack, one a hoverboard and a third with Scuba gear. Today we’re taking a look at the initial release, courtesy of sponsor Entertainment Earth. After the jump, check out my thoughts and a full gallery for the figure.
