Gecco has posted up photos and info for their new Dark Souls – Black Knight 1/6 Scale Statue. In the game, Black Knights are unique enemies that do not respawn (except at the Kiln of the First Flame). Formerly Silver Knights serving Gwyn, Lord of Sunlight, the knights were charred black in battle near the Kiln of the First Flame. When Gwyn united the First Flame, the knights were burned to ashes, destined to roam the land as spirits.
The Black Knight statue will stand over 16″ tall. It will feature light up LED eyes and includes a themed base. The statue will have a pre-order bonus that includes three additional weapons. Those are the Greatsword, Greataxe and Halberd. Sideshow and Diamond Comics will both distribute the statue in the US. It’s priced at $469.99 with a release set for Summer 2019. See the photos and additional details after the jump.
“Kurokishi” known as Black Knight is the formidable enemy from the video game “Dark Souls” consistently challenging players on their journey.
This character is faithfully recreated as a 1/6 scale statue, thoroughly supervised by the design team of FromSoftware.
The concept of Fire, Ash and Soot, which represents the world of “DARK SOULS” is engraved on the Black Knight’s armor. Sculptor Shiya Yamaoka captured the intricate and beautiful design using traditional sculpture techniques.
The Black Knight was once the proud Silver Knight of Gwyn and was burnt black. Katsushige Akeyama recreates the dull silver in the scorched black surface through his splendid exacting paint work.
This statue stands over 40 cm/16 inches tall creating an intimidating presence even in 1/6 scale.
Moreover, the eyes light up with LED, which further enhances the uncanny character.
The weapons and shield were digitally sculpted in precise detail by Masaki Akao, and the Black Knight Greatsword, Greataxe and Halberd are all included as a bonus with the pre-order.
