What are your thoughts on collectible figures? How about collectible figures that come bundled with exclusive content? If you’ve booked your ticket for the hype train that is Nintendo’s Amiibo line, you’ll be familiar with this business model, and it’s set to extend into the world of Killer Instinct.

Ultimate Source recently announced a brand new series of Killer Instinct figures, the first of which is a detailed model of the game’s latest addition, Shadow Jago. Limited to 5,000 units, this collectible includes an exclusive code that unlocks the spooky fighter’s tenth color palette (highlighted in the gallery below).

Shadow Jago stands 6″ tall and retails for $34.99. He will be followed by similar figures for Jago, Sabrewulf, Hisako, and Fulgore, as well as light-up models of Jago and Spinal, in March.

Pre-orders are now open and expected to ship the week of December 28. More details can be found here.
