Upcoming 'Witcher 3' Vinyl Figure Is The Cutest Version Of Geralt You've Ever Seen
The characters of CD Projekt Red's The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt will soon be transformed into a variety of action figures, statues, busts and more courtesy of Dark Horse Deluxe, but this new figure from Jinx is hands down the cutest version witcher we've ever seen.
Jinx will begin selling this superstylized, vinyl version of Geralt starting in July. No word yet on pricing, but Jinx says the figure will be sold online through the official Witcher site and Jinx.com.
The figure adopts a style not so different from Funko's popular POP! vinyl figures. Jinx's Geralt will come with several points of articulation and removable swords. An exclusive variant will be sold as well, though Jinx has yet to detail what will set that figure apart from the standard one.
Cute Geralt will just be the first of numerous Witcher collectibles hitting store shelves later this year. As mentioned above, Dark Horse Deluxe is bringing a number of new Witcher products to stores this fall, starting with a $29.99 Geralt statue. Statues of Triss, Yennefer, the King of the Wild Hunt and Ciri will then follow. From there Dark Horse promises to release action figures, jewelery and more items based on the fantasy world of the award-winning RPG series. The company has worked with Dark Horse in the past to publish two Witcher comic miniseries and a World of the Witcher artbook.
This won't be the first time CD Projekt Red has partnered with Jinx, either. Previously, the game developer teamed up with the geek merchant to sell physical Gwent cards, based on the card game of the same name that more than a few players became addicted to over the course of playing The Witcher 3.
In other Witcher 3 news, the game swept numerous video game awards, including more than a few "Game of the Year" wins. The RPG's second expansion, Blood and Wine, is still on track for a fall 2016 release. If you still can't get enough Geralt after that, a feature film is in the works as well with a target release date of 2017.
