Pre-orders have been opened by Sideshow Collectibles for a new item in Ray Harryhausen Collection the from X-Plus. The latest addition is probably the most recognizable and iconic monster from Ray Harryhausen’s long career. X-Plus has announced a statue based on the Kraken from Clash of the Titans (1981). In the film, the Kraken is used by Zeus to punish those that defy him. Andromeda, the fiance of Zeus’ his human son Perseus, becomes the target of the Goddess Thetis, who will unleash the Kraken to destroy the kingdom of Joppa if Andromeda is not sacrificed. Perseus sets out on a quest to find a way to defeat the Kraken, and save his future wife.
The statue stands over 13.5″ tall, and measures over 21″ in length. The statue is cast in vinyl and hand-painted. There will be a Standard Version and a Deluxe Version. A diorama base, featuring the chained up Princess Andromeda is included with the Deluxe Version. The Standard Version is priced at $450, while the Deluxe Version is priced at $495. It will be released in the Fourth Quarter of the year. You can pre-order it via Sideshow Collectibles. Check out some new photos after the jump.
