Heroes Might & Magic VII Ivan Figure

Figure with helmet

Blood stains on cloak 

Battle scratches on gauntlet

In celebration of Heroes Might & Magic 20th anniversary, Ubisoft is leaving it up to gamers to select the figurine that will be included in the 7th installation Collector's Edition. The pose voted by the fans on the game main character Ivan's figurine stands 26cm (approx 11 to 12 inches tall) on an impressive diorama base. High quality statue like non posable figure. Realistically painted with nice weathering, from the company that brought us 'Assassins Creed'. Amazing sculpt from armor to willow cloak and pose of Ivan facing the horizon. The fist clenched and the sword in hand, Ivan is standing proudly after a brilliant victory on the battlefield. Figure has an interchangeable helmet head for a different look. 

Offering a deep knight fantasy universe with a complete strategic experience, a rich RPG progression and a strong story narrative. The entire collector's set comes with the game, CD soundtrack, pack of tarot cards, art book showing the games magnificent artworks, tons of concept arts/characters and of course this awesome figure. I'm not a follower of the game so the only thing that interests me is Ivan figure. Innovative packaging that feature openable box featuring heaven and griffon in the backdrop. 

A back story of the game - The Holy Empress murder triggered a terrible succession war. For ten years, Duke Ivan was fighting for the throne against his ambitious cousin Seamus. Weary of bloodshed, Ivan summons his most trusted councillors. Each of them has an inspiring tale to tell from previous Heroes, which will help Ivan decide what is best for Ashan's future. To crush its enemies from the Stag Duchy, he will reunite its powerful allies and lead the armies of the Griffin Empire.

I think the paint job on the armor is better than the paint job on facial sculpt.

The level of detail in the sculpting of this statue is one of the best I have seen so far in this kind of statues, I mean, one belonging to an anniversary box set for a videogame and while the game style is not the kind I like either, the graphics are excellent !!!... Looking at the game trailer I can say that the overall result is quite faithful to the digital character, I love the design of the armor and its color scheme, all the textures are very realistic and intricate; but yeah, the face looks kinda pale, the skin tone could be a bit darker, as well as the tone for the eyebrows and the incipient beard, it would add more manliness to the character, but I love this statue and I know you’re keen of the medieval stuff !!!... =OOOOO

I will have to agree on this since I display my figure with the helmet on as it looks better IMHO...

Very well said again pal. You always hit the note better than I do... I believe the game will be to my liking just that my game clearance rate these days are really low. Wishing for Utopia lifestyle of 8hrs sleep, 8 hrs play & 8hrs work everyday lolz. The sculpt on the armour and texture is pretty fairly good since the product is more for the game than as a toy. The face sculpt seems lacking and I also find the skin surface a bit too gloss.
