The Ellie And Joel We All Liked Are Immortalized In Statue Form

With the recent news that Naughty Dog is remaking (for whatever reason) the original The Last of Us game for the PS5, I thought it would be nice to look back on the characters when they were interesting and not so full of hate and spite.
Gaming Heads has announced a limited edition statue featuring Ellie and Joel as they appeared in the first game, traveling across the country in the hopes that the young girl holds the cure for the cordyceps plague that sent the world into chaos. Don’t worry. There’s not a golf club in sight.
The statue will measure 12″ high, 10″ long, and 11″ wide. This statue is a limited edition release; only 500 copies will be made. Expect Joel and Ellie to journey out into the wide world during the first quarter of 2023. Although the statue may not be big, it is sort of expensive. The Deluxe Edition Ellie & Joel piece will cost you $549.99.

The Ellie & Joel (Deluxe Edition) statue is only available here at Gaming Heads. Ellie is shown holding her bow by her side and Joel has a baseball bat and interchangeable steel pipe in his right hand. Ellie & Joel also comes with the Ellie & Joel standard edition statue parts, which are Ellie with her rifle slung across her shoulder while Joel is holding his personal weapon of choice, a revolver. It also comes with a bottle and brick placed in easy reach of both Ellie and Joel. The Ellie & Joel (Deluxe Edition) statue is made using polystone resin and is skillfully hand-crafted and painted by artisans. It also includes deluxe, full-color packaging, a hand-numbered base and a validation card.

What do you think of the remake and this statue? Is there a need to overwrite a game’s art style just to make it more realistic? Is something lost in that process? Let us know your thoughts below.
