Media Release — Dynamite Entertainment continues to expand an ever-growing line of collectible items with the announcement of two destined-to-be-sought-after statues featuring the one and only She-Devil with a Sword!
The Women of Dynamite: Red Sonja Bust by Arthur Adams is the first of Dynamite Entertainment’s new series of busts inspired by the artwork of comic book master Art Adams! Sculpted by Jason Smith and modeled after Adams’ gorgeous cover to the landmark Red Sonja #50, this Limited Edition poly-resin bust has cast metal details and stands approximately 7.5″ height (to the top of Red Sonja’s sword hand), with a base measuring 3″ by 5.5″. Packaged in a four-color display box, this highly-detailed bust celebrates one of the industry’s finest artists, and one of fantasy’s most iconic women!
Additionally, Dynamite will release a special variant statue in their Women of Dynamite line: the Women of Dynamite: Red Sonja Black-and-White Statue in a limited edition of just 99 pieces! This extremely limited Red Sonja statue is based on the work of comics sensation J. Scott Campbell and sculpted by the ever-talented Jason Smith, featuring the stark contrast of light and darkness. Hand-painted on cold-cast porcelain, the Red Sonja statue stands approximately 11.5″ in height with a 5.5″ base. This rare variant edition of the Women of Dynamite statue comes packaged in a four-color box with a hand-numbered Certificate of Authenticity. Welcome the fantasy genre’s most iconic female to your collection with this rarity in three dimensions!
“I couldn’t be more proud of our growing line of statues, and our first bust,” says Dynamite CEO and Publisher, Nick Barrucci. “Before we were a publisher, we started Dynamic Forces for our personal love of collectibles, and to be able to bring the characters of Dynamite Entertainment to life in beautiful three dimensional items is truly satisfying. I am only hoping that someone decides to gift ME one of these beauties this holiday season.”
The Women of Dynamite: Red Sonja Bust is available for a special introductory price of just $75.00 for a limited time, while its regular price is $89.99. The special limited edition Women of Dynamite: Red Sonja Statue retails for $249.99, and allocations may occur.
Additionally in November, Dynamite will release the official Vampirella Bottle Opener. Made of sturdy, cold-cast zinc alloy and measuring approximately 4.5″ by 2″ in size, the bottle opener ships in a four-color display box. Plus, two magnets on the back will allow Vampi to stick conveniently to your refrigerator door, readily available for use and on full display for your jealous friends and family! After all, not everyone has fangs to pry open their favorite beverage! Quench your thirst this November for $17.99.
These special collectibles will be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors’ September 2016 Previews catalog, the premiere source of merchandise for the comic book specialty market, and slated for release in November. Comic book fans are encouraged to reserve their items with their local comic book retailers.
