New Year, New Arrival: Ratchet & Clank

The Sony Playstation and Playsation 2 seemingly came out of nowhere to trounce Nintendo in the 90s and early 00s (the balance has since shifted again with the unexpected success of the Wii) and brought a ton of new and innovative games with them. One such game was Ratchet & Clank for the Playstation 2. Here’s a quick description from the wiki:

The game follows the exploits of Ratchet (a bobcat-like creature known as a Lombax that is very handy with tools) and Clank (a diminutive sentient robot that befriends Ratchet) as they save the galaxy from several evil forces.

Sounds like a pretty average premise for a game, but it was the innovative worlds, characters and weapons that won the hearts, minds and thumbs of the gaming world. The game became a massively successful franchise and has come to include downloadable mini-games and character spin-offs on top of the full-length console adventures. Really, given the popularity of it all, it’s almost a surprise that it’s only now that DC Direct is releasing action figures based on the game! Check out the Ratchet & Clank collection over on our website to see the rest of the items (including the series’ villains and a new look for Ratchet), but here’s one now:
