The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Dragonborn Statues

ATTENTION FELLOW DOVAHKIIN!!! Gaming Heads announces for pre-order an awesome Dragonborn Statue inspired by official artwork, that begs to be on my shelves!

Dragonborn stands powerfully upon his rock base, surrounded by the tail of a mighty dragon. At 1/6 scale, he measures approximately 16 inches tall, including the base - creating an extremely awe-inspiring presence.  Cast in high quality poly-stone, the statue is hand-finished and hand-painted. The Dragonborn comes dressed in incredibly detailed and authentic hand-tailored fabrics for unparalleled realism.

Dragonborn comes in 2 different flavors.  The exclusive version of Dragonborn, only available at GamingHeads.com, comes with an additional alternate arm that holds a fireball spell that illuminates and pulses like real fire. The collector can exchange the fireball for the short sword depending on preference. Also included is an alternate portrait that shows the Dragonborn with his helmet removed. The exclusive version is limited to 500 pieces worldwide and will set you back $329.99.  The "basic" version comes with the long and short sword (sans fire) is limited to 1,000 pieces worldwide and sits at $299.99.  Both versions are scheduled to be released Q4 2013.

The statue, in all its amazingness includes deluxe, full-color packaging, a hand numbered base, and a certificate of authenticity.
