Does this look familiar? When the Mr. Sandman mini statue first arrived, it was painted in greyscale—just like Vault-Tec’s early training cartoons. With the introduction of color to motion picture, Vault Boy’s hijinks came alive in vivid hues. And now it’s time for the Mr. Sandman mini statue to follow suit.
This special collectible is an SDCC-exclusive release only available at the Bethesda Gear Store from July 22 through 25, 2021 (PDT).
It depicts one of the game’s most recognizable stealth kills: sneaking into people’s beds with a kitchen knife and killing them while they sleep.
Except for the floorboards, the Fallout Vault Boy Mr. Sandman Technicolor Variant is bathed in Vault-Tec hues—a saturated palette of blue and yellow, plus a bright red for the fresh blood on the victim’s chest.
Vault Boy looks even more gleeful in color, with pearly whites standing out against his skin and that giddy little left hand poking out from his blue sleeve. You could almost hear him giggling.
In the game, this scene appears as a little animation when the Mr Sandman kill is performed. It’s also part of Vault-Tec’s agility training video. In mini statue form, it takes after the style of Fallout’s bobbleheads—simple and expressive.
The addition of bold colors gives it an appropriately surreal look. For a better, 360° view of what to expect, watch the unboxing video below.
You can now view the Fallout Vault Boy Mr. Sandman Technicolor Variant at the Bethesda Gear Store ahead of SDCC. It will be available for purchase in
