ThinkGeek is producing a series of collectable figures based on Sony franchises which look a heck of a lot like Nintendo's amiibo.

The Totaku Collection consists of plastic figures mounted on bases and features the likes of the hunter from BloodborneCrash Bandicoot, Kratos from God of War, Parappa the Rapper, Sackboy from LittleBigPlanet and even the the iconic Feisar FX350 anti-grav racing craft from WipEout.

As our friends over at Push Square have kindly pointed out, it's not quite as if Sony has shamelessly taken a leaf out of Nintendo's book as while these are indeed officially-licensed products, they're being made by a third-party manufacturer and not by Sony itself. 

It's also important to note that despite the visual similarities - in both the design of the figures and the packaging - these items have no impact on gameplay whatsoever are are simply intended to look nice on your shelf (some would argue that's all many amiibo are good for).


Each figure will cost $9.99, and we have to admit they do look pretty cool - even we might not be able to resist that cute little Parappa.
