Yesterday’s new Death Stranding reveal included the announcement of a rich Collector’s Edition priced at $199.99, and it includes a reproduction of the iconic “BB Pod” carried by protagonist Sam Porter.
Today Director Hideo Kojima himself followed up by showing off the item, including comparison with the well-known Ludens statue to give an idea of the size (it’s actually 1:1 scale with real life).
We also learn that the pod was created with Kojima Productions’ supervision, and it even includes a lamp that can be turned on.
The 1/1 size BB pod of Collector’s Edition is a miracle Sentinel created with our supervision. Refer the size from the photo. The lamp inside can be turned on. Can be used as décor, for cosplay, as a lamp… A LUDENS mini figure comes with it too. pic.twitter.com/ehn9A9v2EQ

Speaking of props, we also get to take a look at Sam’s goggles, worn by Kojima-san himself.
