In a world where Nintendo's Amiibo is king, few have dared to take it on.

As revealed on GameStop's website and the video below from the Spanish branch of retailer Game, at least seven different figures are coming in March as part of a new Totaku Collection line. The first figures available will be the hunter from Bloodborne, Crash Bandicoot, PaRappa the Rapper, Kratos from God of War, Sackboy from LittleBig Planet, Heihachi from the Tekken series, and the Feisar FX350 racing ship from Wipeout (which is kind of the "Shoe" of this Chinpokomon lineup).

Each figure measures about four inches (10 centimeters) tall and will be priced at $9.99.

Totaku collectables are based on characters and franchises familiar or exclusive to the PlayStation brand.

If you've ever wished they'd make amiibos for something other than Nintendo characters then get ready for the PlayStation equivalent. Each figure costs $10 Dollars (~R120 ZAR), which makes them even more attractive for collectors and fans.

The Totaku Collection is being produced by ThinkGeek, a merchandising company owned by Gamestop.

Unlike Amiibo, the figures do not offer NFC functionality nor in-game incentives, meaning these collectables are for aesthetic purposes only. This is a figurine series mean only for collectors. In the USA, they're priced at $10 a pop and will be available exclusively through GameStop and Think Geek. That might be an even bigger reason to collect one or two of them!
