Women of Dynamite Immortalized in Statues


Dynamite Entertainment has been really big on the crossovers lately and one of their higher profile ones was Swords of Sorrow. The limited series brought together some of the most iconic female characters in the Dynamite universe together in one massive event. Dynamite is looking to give two of those characters even more homage by adding Red Sonja and Dejah Thoris to the Women of Dynamite line. Each statue will be painstakingly rendered in incredible detail by Jason Smith and will be released in August and September respectively, carrying a price tag of $189.99 each.

"Dynamite Entertainment has published so many great characters over the years, and Red Sonja and Dejah Thoris are easily two of our most well known," says Dynamite CEO/Publisher, Nick Barrucci. "The previous Red Sonja statues have sold out so quickly, and we've never had a Dejah Thoris statue, so as we continue to grow our line of collectibles, these two are an obvious choice for new 3D renditions."

First up is Red Sonja, the She-Devil with a Sword, poised on a snow-covered battlefield. Based on the original design of comics sensation J. Scott Campbell and sculpted by Smith, Hyrkania's most lethal warrior stands approximately 11.5" in height upon a decorative 5.5" wide base. Hand-painted on cold-cast porcelain with ABS details, this highly-detailed statue comes individually numbered as part of a limited edition run, and is packaged in a four-color box with a hand-numbered Certificate of Authenticity.

For the Dejah Thoris statue, Smith and the team at the Brewing Factory poured over the very finest creator illustrations to find just the right inspiration, resulting in this gorgeous statue based on Frank Cho artwork, measuring 12" high (to the tip of her sword) and 4.5" deep, with a 6" base. Hand-painted on cold-cast porcelain with ABS details, each statue is individually numbered as part of a Limited Edition run, and comes packaged in a four-color box with a hand-numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
