Hi Guys! I’m actually writing this while at San Diego Comic Con! I didn’t think I would have anything Silent Hill related to report until the Revelation panel on Saturday but I got quite a surprise on the dealer’s room floor this morning. It looks like not only do we have a new movie and a new game to look forward to later this year but also some sweet collector items!
Toymunkey Studios is licensing some gorgeous Silent Hill statues and has made their official launch here at the covention! At their booth they are showcasing two of their unpainted upcoming releases: a Bubblehead Nurse by Shin Tanabe and Red Pyramid Thing by Shinya Akao/HEADLONG.
I have to say the Pyramid Head holding up the Lying Figure is one of the coolest Silent Hill related statues I’ve ever seen. The little details are really incredible I especially love the rough textures on his helmet and apron. I can’t wait to see the completed painted version! I also really liked how the nurse bases connect so you can build up your own scary horde.
According to Scott Sohn, “Top Munkey” at Toymunkey Studios, these figures should be for sale around December this year with an estimated price tag of $150! I was expecting to hear that they would sale them for over $250…like the HEADLONG sculpted official Valtiel and Pyramid Head statues they sold last year in Japan through Konami Style.
I don’t have much information at this time but I have a video interview at the Toymunkey booth planned for this Sunday… so expect some more info and video footage when I get home from San Diego! Until then here’s the company’s statement about these statues from their website. Don’t forget to give their facebook page a like and follow them on twitter:
