Sony have announced that a set of Sackboy action figures will be hitting shelves courtesy of Mezco Toys. The figures are four inches tall and will be released this spring. Alongside these smaller figures, Mezco will be releasing special edition figures ranging from eight to twelve inches tall. Sony have also said that they’re still working on Sackboy plushies, now that would be much cooler.

It looks like the guys over at LittleBigPlanetoid have been busy using their imagination over the Christmas period, making a list of great costumes they’d like to see in LittleBigPlanet (one of them being above). They drempt up 20 different characters/franchises they’d like to see made into costumes and, well, check em out for yourself.

How cool would it be to have the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in LBP. Answer: Very Cool.

Calling all knitters!… eh? Yes the gaming and knitting community has finally collided, yes folks that is a Sackboy. British based magazine Simply Knitting (issue 49) includes a knitting pattern (made by Alan Dart for those who’re interested)¬†for everyone’s favourite sack-based game character, and it looks nicer than those from Play-Asia.

It looks like those who want their Sackboy plushie might have to make it themselves, either that or have a granny at hand. The pattern will also be printed in other magazines, more appropriate for the gaming community. I’m thinking he could look a little darker, but that’s just me.



LittleBigGolf? by Anthony Barlow

It has been rumored that LittleBigPlanet will be invading the world of Everybody’s/Hot Shots Golf. Apparently Sackboy will be joining Kratos as the second lisenced character to be added to the game via DLC. It sounds like a reasonable deal and it’s probably true. I think we should keep it as rumor for now though.

This comes from the same website that originally rumored the, recently announced, Street Fighter DLC for LittleBigPlanet. It could be pretty credible after all then.

I just thought i’d let everyone know that import website Play Asia have got stock of the Japanese Sackboy plush toys that were announced a few months ago. There are four available (Pirate, Solider, Normal and Sunflower – all above) and retail at around $9.90. I’m sure there’ll be people clamoring for these, I wonder when they’ll get released in the U.S. and Europe?

We recently alerted you to an image on the Japanese LBP website showing off some of the new costumes coming to the game this week. Now, the North American LBP site has given us a little more info on what to expect this week. As expected, the Gorilla, Peguin, Shark & Cameleon costumes will be available as well as the MotorStorm ‘custume’ that was released in Europe last week and a ‘Sack-Eating Plant’ (above) which is free. The pricing is after the jump. Continue reading



Whatever You Do DON’T Do This! by Anthony Barlow

The LBP creating, and subsequently playing, community have experienced a bit of a bug in the game. This bug actually makes you delete your save files in order to play the game again. Bad times. The bug involves a massive spinning wheel, set to the highest speed and of course a Sackperson. Activating said wheel will cause the game to crash and for Sackboy to continuously die, even when in the pod. The only way to fix this is by deleting your save game and starting over. Hopefully MM will address this in a patch, but for now just don’t get on any giant spinning wheels.
