I know there's quite a few folk in the Neo community (looking at you, Lydia) who have been looking forward to the BioShock Infinite Songbird plushie. Irrational Games officially opened preorders for the likely limited-in-quantity plushie just moments ago. It won't be shipped until September, but if a Songbird plushie is something you'd want then a few months wait shouldn't be too terrible. The $55 price tag may be a bit more impeding.
To accompany opening up preorders for the BioShock Infinite plushie, a number of pictures of the toy have also been released. It looks like Songbird is made from leather, but the official description states it's entirely polyester. Check out the images in the gallery below, and here's the short description:
" 'Songbird, Songbird, see him fly. Drop the children from the sky. When the young ones misbehave, escorts children to their grave.' More than just a mere child’s fable, you can now have your own ruthlessly adorable Songbird plushie. Plushie sits at 7” tall, has an outstretched wingspan of 14”, weighs 180g, and is comprised of metal & wire (55g), PU (25g), and polyester (100g)."
Pre-order your very own BioShock Infinite Songbird plushie today over at the Irrational store. It'll cost $55 and ship in September, but it's absolutely adorable (frightening). It'll be delivered right around that time of the year when a reminder of how great BioShock Infinite is could be useful.
