Wallet Will Cry
The high-end merchandise-makers over at Prime 1 Studio have released images on a brand new statue, featuring the tight detail, intricate design, and eye-watering price that is the company’s trademark. Devil May Cry‘s wry hero Dante joins Prime 1’s line of top-tier video game statues, previously showcasing characters from NieR: Automata and Resident Evil.
The half-scale Dante statue stands a mighty 43 inches tall and sees the demon hunter stylized in his silver fox Devil May Cry V form. Dante is cast in polystone and features clothing stitched from real fabric, with detailing that includes real metal parts. Dante, poised in typical casual-as-all-hell fashion, comes equipped with his legendary firearms Ebony & Ivory as well as his head-cleaving sword, Rebellion. A demonic, finely detailed base completes the ensemble, making this statue a true “museum piece” for the most die-hard (and richest) of Devil May Cry aficionados.
Ok, it’s inevitable, so let’s just rip that Band-Aid right off. Prime 1 Studio’s Devil May Cry Dante statue will retail for $2,699 USD for the standard format, while the Black Label edition — complete with an alternate silicon head complete with synthetic hair — will set you back a reasonable $4,299 USD. These prices do not include shipping and handling — and with the statue expected to weigh upwards of 25lbs, be sure to factor those costs into your generous budget.
If you fancy having the sexy hero light up your household, then check out the official Prime 1 Studios website for pre-order information. Finance plans are also available to help buyers spread out the cost in the lead-up to Dante’s launch — which is tentatively scheduled for late-2022 / early-2023. A format size for either edition was not revealed.
