As can be seen on the teaser page, pre-orders for Gaming Heads’ Medic statuette will go live at 8AM PST, on Tuesday, the 31st of January, 2012. As usual, it’ll be a limited edition collectible, with low numbers, given on a first-come first-serve basis. No idea what the pricing will be, but we can expect it to be somewhere around, or possibly lower, than the pricing for the previous Gaming Heads TF2 statuettes. We can also expect to see Exclusive variants of the statuette to be made available – higher price, but perhaps a Quick-Fix or Kritzkrieg instead of the standard Medigun. As usual, they’ve got plenty of wallpapers available, so check out the teaser page.
Even if these things are pretty expensive, they’re quite gorgeous. These guys do some pretty spectacular work! If you’ve got the cash to spare… then hell, why not? I’m sure there’s one technique in particular Valve and Gaming Heads could resort to, in order to get more interest in these statuettes going… TF2 item cross-promotion? Crazy idea… but that’s just thinking outside the box. If the box was… a Gaming Heads TF2 shipment. Still technically a box, though. Feel free to use my little idea, Valve and Gaming Heads. I know, it’s brilliant. All I ask in return? It’s totally not statuettes. Okay… maybe it is. Gah, why did I crack? Now they know my greatest weakness!
