Rewind: The ‘Bioshock Infinite: Ultimate Songbird Edition’ Statue by Irrational GamesDecember 5, 2013
For all of the hype that preceded the release of Bioshock Infinite, the game proved to be exceptionally well conceived and beautifully executed. Ken Levine and the development team at Irrational Games delivered the true AAA classic that they promised.
As with the previous games in the venerable Bioshock series, several limited edition SKUs accompanied the disc-only standard edition. Most impressive and exorbitant among these was the Ultimate Songbird Edition which included a meticulously crafted, hand-painted resin statue cast in the image of the games mechanized avian nemesis, the Songbird.
Designed and released in limited quantities by Irrationals own concept artist, Robb Cobb, the 9.75 Songbird statue features exceptional detail from the sculpture itself to the Columbia-inspired packaging. Although the cost of the statue was clearly reflected in retail price of the Ultimate Songbird Edition the value is immeasurable for true Bioshock fans. We’re calling it another must-have for fans of video game collectibles. See more images of this amazing piece below.
