Gaming Heads Presents: God of War Life-size Kratos Bust
January 22, 2014

January 22nd 2014: Last year, amongst many other product launches, we at Gaming Heads were pleased to announce a deal with Sony Computer Entertainment to produce a range of statues based on various Platstation licenses. After that range proved to be a success, we are now very excited to introduce to you the God of War range, starting with a life-size bust of Kratos.

The God of War series is based upon Greek mythology, following a demigod Spartan warrior by the name of Kratos as he seeks revenge against the Olympian Gods after he was tricked into murdering his family. Kratos eventually assumes the title of God of War for himself and so it’s very fitting for a character of such stature to immortalised in life-size form. Fans are sure to agree, as the entire series has sold more than a combined 21 million units to date making it one of the best selling franchises of the past decade.

This bust of God of War’s Kratos has been realised by a new artist at Gaming Heads: Diego D. Gonzalez. The impressive bust is perched upon a Greek styled column that serves as a base for supporting the piece. The bust of Kratos himself is completely cast in polystone resin, and completely finished and detailed by hand. At a towering 28 inches tall from the bottom of the pedestal to the crown of his head, Kratos is the largest pieces we’ve made to date.

This bust is highly limited to only 500 pieces worldwide, is scheduled to start
shipping during the third quarter of 2014, costs $599.99 SRP. The bust is available
to pre-order at the link here.

Daniel Pickett
Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
