If you’re at all familiar with BioShock Infinite, you’re also familiar with at least two things: 1) delays, and 2) the setting. BioShock Infinite is set predominantly in the sky within the world of Columbia, a floating city of blimps, balloons, and impossibilities. Both you and your enemies will get around the large open spaces by Sky-Lines, metal rails that facilitate both cargo transport and, with the help of Sky-Hooks, personal travel.
And if you’re at all familiar with video game toys, you’re also familiar with the name NECA, a company that specializes in making fairly detailed yet easily mass produced replicas of your favorite things in your favorite games. They’ve got Borderlands Psychos, Assassin’s Creed Ezios, and plenty more.
Put those two things together and you’ve got NECA’s upcoming Sky-Hook replica toys. It’s large, kind of expensive, and bewildering. I mean, it’s also neat and ostensibly accurate, but would I want to buy this thing? Probably not. Do I want it? Well, that’s a different question altogether. I just wish I had an answer to one particular question: how does the Sky-Hook work?! What attaches to what?! Help me understaaannndddd!
Pre-orders are now open in the US with the final product expecting to ship in late February.
