Valve seems to be on a mission to empty our wallets and take over all our free desk space. Last week, the company caught our eyes with the Left 4 Dead Boomer Plush. Today, Gaming Heads, a company that’s working with Valve to produce Team Fortress 2 merchandise, announced that they are accepting pre-orders for this amazing Heavy figure. It comes in both Team RED and Team BLU flavors, and is the first of Gaming Heads Team Fortress 2-themed merchandise.

The sculpture was created with the help of the Team Fortress 2 game files to ensure that it is perfectly proportioned, stands 13 inches tall (with the base), is cast in poly-stone, and is hand painted. The only downside is that the heavy duty detail comes with a hefty price tag. $229.99 is the asking price for this detailed piece of craftsmanship. But to be fair, it costs $400,000 to fire the Heavy’s favorite gun, Sasha, for just 12 seconds. So maybe the cost of this figurine isn’t so expensive after all.
