Netflix is now offering pre-orders for a 10.6-inch tall resin Geralt statue that depicts one of the first moments from its Witcher show, in which Geralt fights and defeats a kikimora. The statue is based on art by illustrator Tracy Tubera, and just 350 have been made.
It’s certainly a bold rendition of the famed witcher. The most obvious comparison is to Samurai Jack, and I suspect opinions will be divided on whether or not the White Wolf looks good here.
Personally, I can’t quite come to terms with Geralt’s legs in this form. It looks like he has Instant Pots stuffed into his boots, and his thigh muscles appear to be made of angular banana slugs. Here’s a photo of the whole $250 statue:
Not quite my tastes, but surely there are 350 people out there who like it when muscles are depicted like kitchen gadgets and unusual gastropods. At the time of writing, the statues are still available to order on Netflix’s shop, so I guess that 350 hasn’t been found just yet. For those who do put in an order, their football-chested Geralt will ship in October.
In some bigger Witcher news, we got a release date and trailer for The Witcher season 2 today—the show returns with eight new episodes this December. (Henry Cavill’s calves haven’t gotten quite that wide, though.)
