Deep Silver has announced Dead Island Riptide's Zombie Bait Edition, an Xbox 360-exclusive collector's edition featuring a steelbook, a pair of weapon and character skins - and a 31cm statue of a decapitated girl in her bikini.

Yep, you read that right. A 12 inch, 2.5kg statue of a bloodied female torso, hand-painted and made from synthetic resin.

Take a look below for a full res shot of the model, and then have a think about where exactly on the mantelpiece you'd want to put it.

"Dead Island Riptide is one of the most anticipated releases of the year and is set to build on the original’s reputation for OTT action, dark humour and brutal zombie bashing," said Paul Nicholls, Sales & Marketing Director at Deep Silver.

"We wanted to provide a unique collector’s edition that was utterly 'Dead Island' and would make a striking conversation piece on any discerning zombie gamer's mantel.”

A price for the Zombie Bait Edition has yet to be announced, but availability is said to be "strictly limited".

Dead Island Riptide launches on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC on April 26.

Let's pity and laugh at the insecure girl. And women can have sexy abs, too.

So the Americans get a bobble head and suitcase; we get a tacky bikini bust. - What kind of market research did (or didn't) they do to come up with this pile of trash.

Stay classy Deep Silver.

They just tweeted saying sorry... LOL. Seriously people are paid to make these choices, how can they not realize what was going to happen. Just a massive PR stunt.

Well looks like Daves no preorders resolution will be going out the window..I mean think of all the 'striking conversations' you'll have because of it.

Such as 'oh my god are you some kind of serial killer'.

Woah, since when is Dead Island Riptide one of the most anticipated releases of the year? As far as internet buzz goes, I'm pretty sure the new Pokemon games are way higher on the anticipation list, and it's barely been a week since they were announced.

Classy bust, thou.

So basically, it's a statue of tits? I suppose it makes sense for the audience its aimed at.

Dave, I'm disappointed about the lack of a, 'bust of a bust' comment, or anything like that.
