sackboy-toy-figuresLittleBigPlanet might soon become an industry of its own, if it didn’t already. Sony plans to release a bunch of cute little toy figures this year so if you have ever wanted to own your personal, 4” plastic Sackboys (and one Sackgirl), your dream will come true. Those attending the 2009 International Toy Fair in New York will be among the few who will catch the very first glimpse of the action-figures that will be available at select mass market, specialty and online stores across North America beginning this Spring.

Also, throughout the year, Sony promises that Mezco Toyz will release exclusive and limited edition Sackboy figures raging between 2″ and 18″ scale figurines, so you’ll most likely get your share sooner or later. If you’re attending the International Toy Fair, as I said, it will be sooner. But if this event is not on your list, you can take a glimpse at the upcoming figures during the Comic-Con International Show this summer.

Also, if none of the six LittleBigPlanet toy figures you see in the upper left corner fits your needs, or if your style simply is different, you might like to know that Sony also plans to release some officially licensed SackBoy plushies in the near future – but we have no further details on this matter yet. But we do know that something similar already exists on the market *wink wink*
