The Last Of Us 2 Merch Guide: Collector's Edition, Ellie Statue, T-Shirts, And More

Naughty Dog’s The Last of Us was one of the best games of the last decade, so naturally The Last of Us Part 2 is one of the most anticipated games of 2020. Arriving May 29 on PS4, the action-adventure sequel will be one of the last PS4 exclusives before the PS5 takes center stage this holiday season. With a game as big as The Last of Us 2, you can bet that there’s some cool merch both on shelves now and available to pre-order.

We’ve rounded up all of the best The Last of Us Part 2-themed products you can buy. About half of the items you’ll find here are limited-edition, and it’s a safe bet that they will become sought-after collector’s items.

One of those collector’s items, The Last of Us 2’s Ellie Edition, was restocked at all major US retailers and EB Games in Canada on February 13. Sadly, it sold out within minutes. But you still have a chance to scoop up a bunch of cool The Last of Us 2 merch, including the Collector’s Edition. For more information on all of available editions, make sure to check out our The Last of Us Part 2 pre-order guide.

The Last of Us Part 2 Ellie Edition | $230

The Last of Us Part 2 Ellie Edition is probably the best purchase you can make if you’re looking for Last of Us 2-themed products. Unfortunately, both waves of pre-orders sold out in a matter of minutes, and it’s unclear if retailers will restock prior to release. Here’s what you get with the Ellie Edition.

  • Base game and digital bonuses: ammo capacity upgrade, training manual
  • Full-sized recreation of Ellie’s backpack
  • Embroidered patch
  • 7-inch vinyl record with original music
  • 12-inch Ellie statue
  • Life-sized replica of Ellie’s bracelet
  • Collectible steelbook
  • 48-page mini art book from Dark Horse
  • Set of six enamel pins
  • Lithograph art print
  • Set of five stickers
  • PSN Dynamic Theme
  • Six PSN avatars
  • Digital soundtrack
  • Digital version of the mini art book

The Last of Us 2 Collector’s Edition | $170

The Last of Us Part 2 Collector’s Edition is the Ellie Edition without the backpack, vinyl record, and embroidered patch. The collector’s edition is hard to come by, but it’s currently in stock at GameStop.

The Last of Us 2 Special Edition | $80

The $80 Special Edition of The Last of Us Part II comes with the 48-page mini art book from Dark Horse, a collectible steelbook case, PS4 dynamic theme, and six PSN avatars. We imagine the art book and steelbook case will become collector’s items. The Special Edition gives you a way to get a couple of cool pieces of The Last of Us 2 merch without spending three times as much on your copy of the game. The Special Edition is in stock at Best Buy and GameStop.

The Art of The Last of Us Part 2

The Art of The Last of Us Part 2 will provide both a treasure trove of original concept art and insights from the development team on the process of bringing the sequel to life. Published by Dark Horse, The Art of The Last of Us Part 2 is available in two editions. The standard edition hardcover is available to pre-order for $28 (was $40). A fancy deluxe edition that features an alternate cover, slipcase, and exclusive lithograph is available to pre-order for $81 (was $90). Both editions are 200 pages and will release June 16, roughly two weeks after the game.

It’s worth noting that the Deluxe Edition has been discounted to as low as $54 at Amazon. If you pre-order from Amazon, you’ll get the lowest price offered between the time you place your order and when it ships.

The Last of Us: American Dreams | $9

The Last of Us: American Dreams is a four-issue comic arc that actually debuted before the original game launched. It’s officially a prequel and serves as a lead-in to the first game. If you’re planning to replay The Last of Us before the sequel arrives, you shouldn’t miss out on American Dreams either. Written by Neil Druckmann and Faith Erin Hicks, American Dreams is a great prequel story that follows Ellie and her friend Rebel. It’s hard to find in print for a reasonable price, but the digital version compiling all four issues is only $9 at Comixology.

“Ellie with Machete” statue | $100

Last year, Naughty Dog opened up limited pre-orders for an incredible statue of Ellie drawing her bow. Even with a whopping $180 price, the allotment of 500 quickly sold out. Luckily for you, Naughty Dog has sculpted another Ellie statue, this time showing the heroine holding a machete. The $100 8-inch statue is remarkably detailed, and this time around, there is no limit on pre-orders. However, you have to place your order by the cutoff date of March 13 to secure this collectible statue. It’s available exclusively from Dark Horse Direct and will ship between June and September.

Cook and Becker art prints | $100+

Dutch online print shop Cook and Becker produces museum-worthy art prints celebrating beloved video game franchises. Given the harrowing atmosphere of The Last of Us, it’s no surprise Cook and Becker’s The Last of Us Part II prints are stunning. The prints are starting to sell out–only five of eight are still available–and once they’re gone, they won’t be reprinted. Prices vary from print to print, but they are around $100 unframed and north of $300 framed.

Logo hoodies

PlayStation Gear has official apparel for The Last of Us Part 2, including two hoodies. You can choose between a black logo pullover hoodie for $50 and a gray zip-up hoodie for $60. Though both designs are rather plain, sometimes understated is better.

Graphic T-shirts

You have more T-shirt options to choose from than hoodies. Our favorite is the Ellie graphic portrait tee ($23) shown above, but we also really like the green tee depicting Ellie walking carefully through a forest ($23). Though The Last of Us 2 focuses on Ellie, you can also grab a Joel T-shirt. Most of the available shirts are between $23 and $30, but this simple black logo tee is on sale for $10 right now.

Water bottle | $16 ($35)

This 25-ounce water bottle features the same Ellie portrait seen on our favorite T-shirt. It’s made of stainless steel and has a thermal design that will keep your drinks warm or cool. The Ellie water bottle is currently on sale for $16 (was $35). If you want a larger water bottle, there’s a 32-ounce logo bottle available for $33.

Stubbins Ellie Plush | $13

Stubbins plushies have a distinct, compact that makes them both cute and kind of weird. This officially licensed Ellie plush is only $13 and would probably enjoy sitting next to you on the couch while you play The Last of Us Part 2.
