    I don't know about you guys but strangely I would really like a real sackboy. Just like the little bean bag character collectible things you get, orthis for example.

    Seems like a fitting product for the lovable little character, I definitely want one, just as a keep sake.

    Appologies if these are already in production or on the shelves, but I have seen nothing of the sort.

    It would be fantastic, but unless there's a production line of Grannies in a sweatshop somewhere, I don't think it's going to happen. Which is a shame really, considering how many people would buy them, and that they'd be prepared to pay a lot for them. :D

    John Lewis in Liverpool have one in a Sony camcorder display case. It's only about 4" high but is definately a knitted sackboy.
    You could always knit your own. Pattern here.

    Well......my wife just made me one!!! The knitting pattern came from one of the threads on this forum.

    I think it's very good, however some people may not like it!! (see attachment)

    I'm not willing to part with it, but I may manage to persuade her to make another one if it's worth it for her.:clap:

    That is absolutely fantastic :thumbsup:
    However, I don't think I'm that fussed about getting one (earlier on I was exaggerating a bit :D) - save your wife the time. :smashin:

    I think it's fantastic :thumbsup:

    My original idea wasn't to have knitted Sackboys, like in mass production, I thought it could be done like a normal beannie but change the design or embroder it to make it appear like it's been sewn. I don't know if that idea would work but on paper it sounds like it would be easier to produce.

    Wish my other half could knit as good as that, or do something.

    My nan did a blue one as she didn't have the right colored wool, so she did this one as a trial.

    Still awesome considering the uncommon colour, and white bits. I like the accessories :thumbsup:

    I had no idea you could make stuff like this by knitting.

    Pretty cool eh :smashin:

    Its only that colour as didnt want to pay out for the right colour wool, that one was more of a "see if I can do it first job" :rotfl:

    Have you seen how much these are going for on eBay? :eek:

    I just checked Ebay and noticed there's so called 'genuine/official' ones on there. Why don't they make more of those :(. I guess it's one of those products you've got to be prepared to shell out for.

    You guys are lucky you know someone who can make one.

    Courtesy of Kotaku (and via playstation blog so at least its fairly accurate for once)

    Yes, There Are LittleBigPlanet Action Figures Coming

    By Michael McWhertor, 7:20 PM on Mon Feb 9 2009, 5,591 views
    [​IMG]We really hope you like LittleBigPlanet's Sackboy, because you'll be seeing more than ever of the little guy in 2009, including Sackboys in 2-inch to 18-inch plastic form. That's right... action figures!
    Sony has revealed, via its PlayStation.blog, that it has partnered with Mezco Toyz [sic] to manufacture wee plastic Sackboys, with an assortment of 4-inch toys debuting at the 2009 International Toy Fair in New York. The toys will be available "at select mass market, specialty and online stores across North America beginning this Spring" according to Sony.


    Expect to have Sackboys shoved down your throat in many sizes, shapes and paint schemes, as Mezco will release a series of "retailer exclusives, variants and limited-edition Sackboys throughout the year."


    Don't worry, Sony says it's still working on giving you those plush, huggable Sackboys it hinted at around the time of LittleBigPlanet's release. It just needs a little more time to get 'em right.


    For an extended peek at Mezco's Sackboy line-up, hit up the PlayStation.blog.

    Glad to see they're bringing out the pluch version as well. Thanks for the info.

    I'll probably end up buying the plastic ones too :)

    That's great news but...in North America only?? I hope not becuase i can see this being exploited by those pesky ebay sellers trying to make a mint and us poor Europeans paying through our noses for one plastic figurine of our beloved character.
