Gaming Heads releases Mass Effect™: Thane 1/4 scale polyresin statue
August 25, 2016

Gaming Heads proudly presents the Mass Effect™:Thane polyresin statue. Standing approximately 18.5 inches tall (i.e. 1/4 scale), the Thane statue is carefully cast in polystone resin and hand-painted by artisans.


Unlike most assassins in the galaxy, Thane Krios gets close and personal instead of picking off prey from behind a scope. As professional as he is spiritual, Thane asks for forgiveness each time he takes a life. One of the most skilled assassins in the galaxy, the Drell’s unique skill set proves invaluable to Commander Shepard during the war against the Reapers.

In the regular edition, Thane is depicted with his trusty M-4 Shuriken submachine gun by his side and has a retail price of $309.99.


Only available at the Gaming Heads store, the Thane exclusive edition statue depicts him in prayer with head bowed. The exclusive edition statue also comes with an alternate pose that shows the assassin with his trusty M-4 Shuriken submachine gun and has a retail price of $329.99.

The Mass Effect™: Thane 1/4th scale exclusive edition statue is highly limited to 500 pieces worldwide while the regular edition statue is limited to 1000 pieces worldwide.



Pre-orders start on the 24 August, 2016 and the statue is expected to be in-stock by Q2 2017.

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 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,,, Boing-Boing,, 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.
