‘The RE6 forces emblems’ ‒ High quality enamelled zinc alloy emblems of the three main protagonists squad insignias, mounted and set in a limited numbered frame authenticated with signatures from Senior producer Hiroyuki Kobayashi, Producer Yoshiaki Hirabayashi and RE6 Director Eiichiro Sasaki. A must have piece for any fan of Resident Evil!
All of the above amazing goodies are bundled together in the lenticular ‘Needle Bomb’ collector’s box (as seen in the RE6 announce trailer)
