Yup. Kojima Productions and Prime 1 Studio present.. the $2,000 statue of Ludens, the studio mascot!!!! Why so expensive? Well there’s only 150 made in the world. I’ll let them tell you all about it…
“I’ll keep coming.”
Prime 1 Studio & Kojima Productions are proud to present Ludens half-scale statue from Kojima Productions. Ludens, sometimes dubbed Ludence, is the Kojima Productions company icon and mascot. He wears an “extra-vehicular activity (EVA) creative suit”, and often carries a flag bearing the Kojima Productions logo which is based off Ludens himself. Ludens is prominently featured in a video titled “Kojima Productions logo movie”, where he treks into the unknown of space and plants the studio flag.
Yoji Shinkawa was the principal designer of Ludens, having formulated the overall design and idiosyncrasies of the mascot. Ludens’ design has a high-tech feel, giving him a nostalgic ambiance. The surface of his EVA suit has “Turing pattern”-like elements that slightly rotate, inspired by the Turing machine.
The exclusive version will be signed by Hideo Kojima (not pictured).
Here’s some pix of this half-scale statue!
