We've heard that humans throughout history have been growing taller, and that famed shrimps from the past (like Napoleon, for example) weren't actually short. They were average for their time periods.

If that goes all the way back to Kratos's time, then the 8-inch statue that comes with the God of War: Ascension Collector's Edition could be considered life-sized.

The Collector's Edition of the upcoming multiplayer God of War game also comes with a metal case, a digital soundtrack, exclusive avatars, a special theme, and an online pass that gets you all future DLC releases and double XP in multiplayer games.

It's now available for pre-order at Amazon, so check it out and let us know what you think of the God of War: Ascension Collector's Edition in the comments or on Twitter.
