McFarlane's Edward Kenway Statue and Artist Proof Details

McFarlane has finally revealed their Assassin's Creed IV Edward Kenway statue!
Statue is about 14 inches tall and will be on a 11.5 inch wide circular base and it will be able to rotate 360 degrees. The statue is limited to 1000 pieces worldwide and each one will come with a Certificate of Authenticity hand-signed by the man, Todd McFarlane himself. (I'm not sure if I'm more impressed with his work or his ability to hand-sign 1000 pieces of CoAs).

I'm really digging the details on this statue. Been a fan of his Spawn figures since I was a kid. Still remembered seeing the Spawn figures at Toys R' Us but my parents wouldn't buy me any as there were too evil-looking. Recently seen a couple of his Spawn resin statues and they looked very cool as well. So I'm really, really excited for my first McFarlane statue.

Check out some of the details..
A lot of the Assassin's Creed figures & statues from the different companies suffer from poorly sculpted faces but have been mainly over-looked because of the hood covering most of their face. Still can't say for sure how this will turn out from the pics above, but it does look much better than what I've become used to.

That's not all..

"MCFARLANE TOYS WILL ALSO OFFER 50 OF THE 1,000 STATUES IN THE EXTREMELY-LIMITED “UNPAINTED ARTIST PROOF” VARIANT--PRIMED IN FLAT GREY AND READY FOR CUSTOMIZATION OR TO BE DISPLAYED AS IS BY COLLECTORS IN ITS RAWEST FORM. EACH STATUE WILL BE FEATURE A CUSTOM PLAQUE THAT IS individually and sequentially to reflect the limited production run of 50."

Personally, I'm not a fan of unpainted statues/figures but this offer may be of interest to some. With the gold-coloured plaque and being limited to only 50, I'm pretty sure this will sell very fast.

A cool collection piece which will end up being the envy of many, also a good buy to customize Edward in a different outfit if you know someone with the skills for it.

I'll be getting just the standard one however, really loving the piece. Hoping that the final product doesn't disappoint.. 

Here's more pics..
