To your Taarakian mount! Sideshow is proud to present the Taarna Premium Format™ Figure from the cult classic film Heavy Metal.
As the last of the strong Taarakian warrior race, Taarna is a stoic, brave fighter summoned to protect a vulnerable village from a group of brutal barbarians. This polyresin statue stands over 22” tall atop a Heavy Metal themed base, which includes mechanical elements and earthen details inspired by Taarna’s part in destroying the evil Loc-Nar.
Taarna is clad in a sculpted black costume and red shoulder armor with gold accents and details of battle-damage. She brandishes a golden sword, and her skin is marked with several bleeding wounds as signs of her fateful battle with the Barbarians.
Although she is a silent hero, Taarna’s expression speaks volumes. Her carefully sculpted portrait bears a look of grim determination, complete with the Taarakian mark tattooed on her neck. Her windswept, silvery hair frames her face as she looks towards her next foe with silent fury.
The Exclusive edition of The Taarna Premium Format™ Figure comes with a swap-out hand clutching the Talisman of the Barbarian Warlord, taken by the Taarakian in victory over her foe.
The Taarna Collector Edition (the standard version) will be priced at $515, while the Taarna Exclusive Edition will be priced at $525. Pre-orders are scheduled to go live on Thursday, January 11th some time between 12:00 PM – 3:00 PM Pacific Time. You can see the new photos after the jump.
