I got my hands on the new Red Pyramid Thing statue by Toymunkey this week! Check out my video review and interview with Toymunkey Studios below!
Toymunkey revealed on their Facebook page today that the RPT + Mannequin Variant statue will available as a Comic Con Exclusive 7/18/2013 (In the US at least?).
Any of you planning on picking this guy up?
Still no word on when the original version of the statue will be released but there are rumors on ebay auctions that it will be sometime in June.

Sorry I’m playing catch up here with the Silent Hill news XD I posted these pics of the Japanese packaging for the upcoming Pyramid Head statue over on the facebook page last week but neglected to post them here as well!
This packaging features a brand new Pyramid Head painting by Silent Hill 2/3 creature designer Masahiro Ito and it also doubles as a display! This box opens up to display a backdrop featuring infamous 9 save point symbol seen both on the original Japanese Silent Hill 2 cover art and right before the final showdown with the big guy!
I really hope we can get the same packaging here when the statue is released here in the US by Toymunkey!

We finally have pictures of the painted Bubblehead Nurse statue from Toymunkey. As with Pyramid Head the paintjob on this is just wonderful. I particularly love the tiny details of the rust spots on the pipe and the thin veins through the nurse’s pale flesh.
I know I’ll be adding this to my collection! Heck, I might even end up getting a couple down the road to make my own nurse horde!

Toymunkey Studios just sent me some new pictures of their upcoming Pyramid Head statue along with the vague holiday season release date. He looks fabulous, I look forward to adding him to my collection! Are you guys planning on purchasing the statue when it is released at the end of the year?

(Sorry about the sound quality guys! I didn’t have a microphone for my camera as I didn’t expect to do any sort of interview while attending Comic Con!)
I had the opportunity to chat with Toymunkey Studios President, Scott Sohn, about the company’s upcoming high end Silent Hill 2 Statues releasing later this year. For more pictures of the unpainted statues be sure to check out my news post!
Pictures of the pending paint job on the RPT can be seen here:
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:
