DS3 red knight

Normally, I leave toy and figurine reviews to Darryn. He seems to know what he’s looking for in a modeled piece of plastic, and is much better toy photographer than I am. However, when I saw the Red Knight statue that came in the Dark Souls 3 Collector’s Edition that I bought for my other half (from the awesome people at AWX), I was blown away.

The statue that came with the Dark Souls 2 collector’s Edition was also impressive, there’s no doubt, but this one is even more so. I think what impresses me the most is the sense of movement that is somehow brilliantly translated to a stationary figure. The arms can’t move, and yet it seems like the dual wielding Red Knight is going to come whirling at me any moment in a flurry of death and mayhem.

The detail on the Red Knight is equally impressive, with every link of chainmail, buckle on the armor and chink in the plate recreated in exquisite detail. From the boots all the way to the helmet, every inch of the statue is well textured, with plenty of details to be found upon closer inspection.

While heavy, the statue isn’t so heavy to be immovable. The swords are inserted into the hands by removing the pommels, which can then be replaced. They are quite small, so this can be a bit of a delicate procedure if you’re not careful.

Combined with the comprehensive art book and cloth map, this Collector’s Edition is definitely worthwhile. I will be admiring this statue for years to come, almost as much as I admire my husband’s skills in the game – I would throw my controller before I’d have the patience to play like that, but at least he doesn’t seem to die all the time, which I would do constantly.

If you haven’t already, you really should enter to win the Dark Souls 3 Collector’s Edition we’re giving away – it’s so very worthwhile, even if you intend to play the actual game on a different platform.

Wielding my lasso of truth, I am the combination of nerd passion and grammar nazi. I delve into all things awesome and geek-tastic. I believe people should stop defining themselves and just enjoy playing games, so let's get on with it!

      Same here, but we need it for different reasons.

      I need it….to sell it….to buy other things

      • I need it for my display case. It will look spiffy next to my illidan statue and gunter penguin plushie

        • Admiral Chief in New York

          GUNTER!

          LOL

        Agents of Lazygamer can’t win competitions 😛

        *neither does people who comment on their forums 🙁

        • HairyEwok

          Yup, usually the people that give 1 comment every 3 or so odd months get to win nice things.

          • Loftus

            That i have tried also, it doesn’t work. Rumor has it hugging someone at Lazygamer gives one the power to win competitions….

          • DragonSpirit009

            Well this explains a lot why I lose!

          • Admiral Chief in New York

            This is true.

            The actual fact is that once Geoff fondles your nipples, your RNG factor goes up exponentially

          • Loftus

            Even if ones has a 3rd nipple ?

          • Admiral Chief in New York

            Then you crap out

  • Greylingad[CNFRMD]

    HE IS STILL DANCING AND SINGING ABOUT THE WONDERFUL FLOWERS THAT SLAUGHTERED HIM ON HIS WAY TO HIS CAMP FIRE!!!

  • DragonSpirit009

    I never really understood the reason for collecting toy statue/figurines… *said the girl with a shelf full of dragon statues*

    • Do you have a Spyro dragon statue? 😛

      • DragonSpirit009

        Had one, but it died when one of my dogs got hold of it <_<

      • HairyEwok

        I think it’s a Yoshi.

  • Original Heretic

    Soon. Oh, my DS3 adventures shall begin oh so soon…..

    • Greylingad[CNFRMD]
      • Original Heretic

        Oh, yes, there’ll be a fair share of nasties, waiting to take my blood. But their blood will run MUCH more freely than mine!! I’ll even make the skeletons bleed! Muhahahahahaha!
