LITTLE BIG PLANET – Sequel Beta and Figures!

The famous Destructoid reports that there’s extra special news for a handful of Little Big Planet fans!
LittleBigPlanet 2 is on its way to us this November, so fans of the first game don’t have long to wait. However, if you’re lucky, you just might find yourself playing the beta a little sooner — if you were a true enthusiast of the first game, that is.

The PlayStation forums have made an announcement that beta invites are going out this week. Will you get one? Well, here’s what they had to say:

We will be sending out invitations to the LittleBigPlanet 2 beta during this week to users who’ve been really active in LittleBigPlanet (PS3™). So if you have been a busy Sackboy™ or girl then an invite might be coming your way. This decision has now been made; unfortunately we are not able to recruit any further Beta Testers at present.

Well, makes sense to me. I guess if you didn’t put in your time with the first game, you’re screwed. I wish more betas worked this way. If so, not only would I be the first b*tch in line for Earth Defense Force: Insect Armageddon, I’d also get stock in D3 Publisher and my own gold-plated giant ant.

Of course, not every fan will be able to get on-board at the beta level, but for anyone who still needs that little something extra to tide them over until the second game, we’ve got three new items that might fit the bill. They’ve just arrived and they are as awesome as they are adorable! Here’s a look at Mezco’s LITTLE BIG PLANET 4-inch figures!

SACKBOY (Closed mouth)

SACKBOY (Open mouth)

SET OF ALL 3 FIGURES

Oh! And! You can also pick up a copy of the Playstation 3 game over at Amazon if you’re uninitiated or pre-order the highly-anticipated sequel. Here are the links!

Pre-Orders: Little Big Planet Series 1

A great game for all ages to explore a world of their own design, LittleBigPlanet took the gaming world by storm and should continue to push forward with the awesome franchise in the future. Of course, as a result of its success, merchandising is inevitable and I’m pleased to say that the folks at Mezco are doing great things with the license. Here’s a look at Series 1 of the 4-inch toys:

The first series is three figures strong and you can buy them individually or as a set:
Sackboy (Closed Mouth)
Sackboy (Openm Mouth)
Neon
Set of All Three!

You can also pick up a copy of the Playstation 3 game over at Amazon if you’re uninitiated or pre-order the highly-anticipated sequel, scheduled for a November release. Here are the links!
