New Killzone Figures! Pre-Orders from DC Direct

It is the year 2357 and, after years of fighting, the Interplanetary Strategic Alliance (ISA) sends its fleet to Helghan, the home planet of its bitter enemy – the Helghast. In a daring bid to defeat them and remove their tyrannical leader, ISA troopers begin their assault on Helghan, a world as brutal and merciless as the Helghast themselves.

Well on their way to becoming the go-to guys for video game merchandising, DC Direct is releasing a pair of great-looking Killzone figures in January 2011, celebrating both Playstation 2’s original game and the PS3’s sequel, Killzone 2.

There are two figures in the series: the Helghast Assault Infantry and the Helghast Sniper, each standing about 6 inches tall and featuring some great sculpting and paint work that brings the grim aesthetic and glowing eyes to eerie life. They come with game-accurate weapons and make a great addition to the toy shelf of any gamer.
