Beginning today, the limited-edition action figure of Grand Theft Auto III lead character, Claude, will be available for pre-order through the Rockstar Warehouse. The action figure will be on sale on October 20. The fully articulated 1:6 scale Claude figure comes dressed in his original attire of cargo pants and a bomber jacket, and is also supplied with his iconic Liberty City Prison-issued jumpsuit. The Claude figure is equipped with an arsenal of classic weapons from Grand Theft Auto III, including a bat, knife, grenades, pistol, sniper rifle, and assault rifle. Rockstar Social Club members can enter to win one of three Claude action figures through October 16 by visiting www.rockstargames.com/socialclub*.
Now that is one great looking rare and valuable collector’s item, but the price tag may scare you just a little as it retails for $149.99.
Grand Theft Auto III by far is one of my favorite games that I played on the PlayStation 2, but I can’t see shelling out a $149.99 on the collector’s item. One thing is for sure though I will be picking up GTA III for my mobile device.
