Given that Sideshow’s new policy of their rewards points expiring, last year I found myself with about $80 worth of credit available to use before it completely expired. At first, I thought about using my available credit by purchasing an art print. However somehow within the Sideshow website, I happened to stumbled across The Templar’s Reign statue by Quarantine Studio. I instantly became excited because I’m a big medieval history geek, in addition also the first thing that peaked my interest was the fact that it was listed as an 1:6 scale statue. I immediately thought this would be a perfect fit with my current 1:6 Elder Scrolls statue collection, and boy it sure does!
At just $280, I think it is an absolute bargain. You get three head sculpts: the traditional crusader knight helm, a regular un helmeted portrait, and lastly an undead version.
The statue itself has a very small footprint. The templar is leaping from what appears to be some sort of stone wall, with a sword raised on his right hand, while his left hand has a wooden shield. Next to him is a banner of St. George. The paint on the statue is really good. The blood splatter on the cloak and shield is done really well, which helps to tell a story.
Overall, I’m completely happy with my purchase, it far exceeded my expectations. The statue is soldout on Sideshow’s website, but it appears Quarantine Studio to be still be selling it on their website. https://quarantinestudio.com/product/templars-reign-prepainted-statue/
My statue is 50 out of 200 edition. While it’s a very short edition size I’m kind of hoping the statue sells well so that the studio can do more medieval based statues with their unique horror element to it.
