BioWare Pauses Sales of $135 Mass Effect Statue That Shows Female Shepard Dying

BioWare has announced that it has de-listed a new Mass Effect statue that costs $135 and shows the female version of Commander Shepard dead and hovering lifelessly aboard a piece of the Normandy SR-1. According to a short letter to fans that the BioWare Gear Store shared yesterday, the statue was pulled because the company felt that the launch wasn’t done properly and didn’t “give the moment in the series the credit it deserves.” All pre-orders for the statue have been canceled. “Thank you it was in poor taste,” wrote one critic.

Mass Effect Shepard’s Death Statue Features

  • Limited Production: Only 2,000 individually-numbered pieces available worldwide
  • Material: Hand-painted Polyresin
  • 2 Clear Transparent Acrylic Posts
  • Certificate of Authenticity included

From a BioWare tweet:

Hi all,

Earlier today, we announced the sale of our latest Mass Effect Shepard statue. This statue was intended to be part of a series, commemorating some of the key and most emotional moments in the series. The way we announced it did not convey that properly, nor does it give the moment in the series the credit it deserves.

As a result, we’ll be pausing sales on the statue until we can share the larger plan with you.

Thank you,
BioWare Gear Store

From an archived BioWare Gear listing:

The Mass Effect Shepard’s Death Statue depicts Mass Effect 2’s dramatic opening scene: Commander Shepard expelled from a crumbling Normandy and hurtling through space to her untimely demise. Only 2,000 pieces are available worldwide and each statue comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
