Dark Horse Direct Unveils Gorgeous Giant Robot Hellboy Statue
What is the only thing better than Hellboy and giant Mechagodzilla-style robots? A Giant Robot Hellboy Statue. And that is exactly what Dark Horse Direct has just unveiled for fans of Mike Mignola’s epic sci-fi fantasy series.
Standing in at ~12” inches tall and towering over a destroyed city base that is ~ 6” inches wide, this imposing figure is quite impressive, boasting plenty of detail that collectors will surely love. At the moment, there are only 500 of these statues available for purchase.
While not a part of the comics, the Giant Robot Hellboy character plays a significant role in the best-selling Kickstarter game, Hellboy: The Board Game! For a brief history of Giant Robot Hellboy, check out the description and some official images below:
Discovered in a cave in Japan in 1972—Apparently built by a secret group of Japanese scientists (purpose unknown) and abandoned in the 1950’s. Turned over to the American government as a worthless curiosity after examination showed no sign of how to operate it and apparently no power source.
It was eventually discovered by accident that if Hellboy could be put into a deep trance, he could mentally “inhabit” the robot and bring it to “life”. Retired carnival hypnotist Gordy Sloke has more luck than anyone at performing the trick of transferring Hellboy’s mind into the Robot. A difficult operation and not one that HB enjoys, but something that can be attempted in the most dire emergency situations.
Anyone interested in pre-ordering the Giant Robot Hellboy statue can head over to Dark Horse Direct. Currently, the figure is available for $179.99, and is set to ship between October – December 2022.
