The Mass Effect universe is overflowing with a tremendous cast of characters, vehicles, weapons, and more objects begging to be brought from the digital world and into your hands. Between the huge games and books based on the series, there’s a lot to choose from when it comes to quality Mass Effect toys. Here are the best Mass Effect toys you can buy right now.
This incredible full-scale replica Geth Rifle measures nearly 3 feet long and weighs almost 20 pounds. That’s crazy. Beyond being life-sized, it’s life-like, as well, with incredible detail “hand-finished and hand-painted,” according to the rifle’s description. Adding to the overall coolness is its limited run, with only 500 replica Geth Rifles existing on Earth.
If you want to kick-start your collection, or are in the market for some exclusive items, the Mass Effect: Andromeda Loot Crate is a perfect place to start. Following the tried and true Loot Crate formula, the limited edition Andromeda Loot Crate packs in exclusive “apparel, collectibles, and home goods” for you, with the cost of the crate coming in at almost half what it would cost to buy the items separately.
This 12-inch Commander Shepard figure features a full armor set and interchangeable hands for holding onto weapons. The M8 Avenger, M5 Phalanx, and Omni Blade weapons are also included. It also has tons of articulation points so it can be posed in basically any fashion you see fit, and the level of detail is astounding.
Okay, so this one isn’t so much a toy as it’s a wearable prop for cosplay, but if you’re a Mass Effect fan, it works for anytime-wear as well. The officially licensed Omni-Blade from Thinkgeek has a flip-out blade and is made of a translucent orange plastic to simulate the Omni-Blade in the Mass Effect universe. If you ever decide to take it off, it also includes a really nice display stand, so it works as a piece of art in your home, too.
This is arguably one of the coolest limited edition guides in gaming. The hardcover guide to Mass Effect: Andromeda is just one piece of this awesome puzzle that also includes a fold-out map of the galaxy, a letter welcoming you to the Andromeda Initiative, a two-pocket backpack that holds a 15-inch laptop, and more.
Now you can take exploring the surface of planets from the game into real life, so long as you don’t mind being limited only to the surface of Earth. But this really cool radio controlled Nomad is definitely fun enough to make up for a lack of interplanetary exploration in your life. It’s controlled through a smartphone app and has an on-board camera, as well as LED lights and a built-in rechargeable battery. Taken by itself, it’s a really cool RC vehicle, but its limited edition numbered run makes it a great addition to any ME fan’s collection.
McFarlane Toys has a long history of high-quality figures with awesome sculpts and displays. The male and female Mass Effect: Andromeda Ryder figures are not exception. Both versions include a branded display stand, removable helmets, 14 points of articulation, and accessories. Grab one or both, depending on your play style or completionist tendencies.
This all-metal model kit from Metal Earth requires no glue and is officially licensed by BioWare. When completed, the tiny SR2 Normandy model fits in the palm of your hand and it looks awesome to boot. If the Normandy isn’t your thing, there are also kits for a Turian Cruiser and SX3 Alliance Fighter. For those looking to go the extra mile, Metal Earth sells a tool kit to help pop out and assemble its models.
Try not to squeal in delight as you open up a package containing the tiny, adorable Titans vinyl Mass Effect character you need to finish your collection. It’s impossible. No one could remain silent and bereft of delight. It’s simply impossible. These figures are cutesy, SD-representations of characters from the original Mass Effect trilogy and tracking them all down is part of the fun. You can buy the full collection for a premium, but where’s the fun in that?
As adorable as they are ubiquitous, there’s Funko Vinyl Pop line for nearly every pop culture property you can think of. The Mass Effect Funko Pop line mixes the detail of collectible figures with the cute and instantly recognizable Pop style. There are Pops for almost anyone’s favorite Mass Effect character, with some rarer ones fetching a pretty penny. The Andromeda Pop figures are due later this year.
This Japanese-designed Commander Shepard statue is a cool twist on the look, melding modern Japanese pop-art styling with the Western developed character of Commander Shephard. This really high end, really desirable collectible from Kotobukiya is 1/7 scale and includes an interchangeable M55 Argus Rifle and Omni Blade.
Snuggle up with this collectible Grunt plushie and let the krogan’s natural desire for violence lull you to sleep each night. This is a collectible plush figure, and as such, it includes a collector’s card to give it some serious bonafides, but don’t let that stop you from letting Grunt guard your pillows.
