First 4 Figures presents the second main statue in their Crash Bandicoot lineup of collectibles: the evil Dr. Neo Cortex! The Dr. Neo Cortex statue stands 21.5 inches and is inspired by the final battle between Crash and Dr. Neo Cortex in Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped. The base replicates the environment of the boss room, which is inside of the Time Twister Machine. And like in the game, the mad scientist also has his blaster pistol in one hand and a mine in the other, both of which are his weapons of choice against Crash in the third installment. Lastly, leaving behind a trail of smoke is his signature hoverboard, which Neo Cortex uses as well in the fight.
Estimated to release third quarter 2021, the Standard Edition is available for pre-order at the Early Bird Price of $359.99 (SRP $399.99). An Exclusive Edition (below) is also available at $359.99 with the addition of light-up elements. The lights on the front of the hoverboard, the top of the mine, and the trail of smoke all have integrated LEDs in them to give the impression as if the statue came straight out of the game.
