Sideshow Diablo Statue Revealed: On Sale Soon

Back in July taking pre-orders in just two days of the Sideshow Diablo statue, which still looked pretty awesome even in an unfinished, unpainted form. The finished model has now been revealed, and just in time since they’re going to start amazing Barbarian statue:

The Diablo Statue will be available for Pre-Order through the Sideshow Newsletter on Thursday, November 29th, 2012, which is typically published between 2PM and 3PM (Pacific Time). For those of you who can’t wait to see the full reveal of this Diablo III collectible, we’re posting the product gallery and info a bit early (see below).

The Diablo Statue will be priced at $349.99 and will have payment plans available. Make sure you log into your newsletter account on November 29th, 2012 to secure this piece for your collection.

They’ve released some photos which you can see here, but these are still sort of a preview, and we’ll get better pictures and more product details once the ordering process goes live later this week. We can at least tell that the statue is huge and wildly-detailed, comparable to the Diablo 2 statue they released back in 2009. That one was the size of a house cat, though not nearly so easily-entertained by a piece of string.

Is merch. Has want? I think I want, though not enough to actually buy it. If I had one I do know that I’d put my old Diablo 2 statue on his back, like a Flayer piggyback shaman.

Incidentally, why don’t we get those type of affordable plastic toys for Diablo III? Not many of us are going to drop $350 on a huge damn statue, (and they only make a few hundred of them in the limited production anyway) but a lot of us would pay $15 for a hand-sized plastic toy of our favorite class, or some cool demon. I get the feeling these huge statues are more about the merch-peens of various Blizzard employees (they got their own employee version of the Barbarian Overthrown statues back in 2009) who want a huge, impressive artwork, than about creating merchandise that fans actually want and will pay for.

    • You simply pay for quality/size/name. Wether you like the looks is up to each person.
      I’m proud of my $250 and $500($350 with discount) statues of Weta. Amazing craftmanship.

  1. Meh, I personally wish they stopped making diablo books and statues, and actually made the game good enough that I would want to actually buy this shit in the first place.

  2. If I wanted to spend three hundred dollars or more on a Diablo model, I would spend it on the original D1 Diablo. D2 Diablo was cool, but not three bills cool. She-iablo from D3? I might spend twenty bucks or something, then not know what to do with it, and end up unintentionally covering her up with old kitchen towels or something.

  3. Browsing through the pictures, my first thoughts were along the lines of “surely, they’ll charge something crazy like 120, maybe 150 dollars for that fugly thing”.

    350 dollars is beyond racketeering though.
    Plus, they’ll probably translate it into a 350 euro price tag without batting an eyelid (currency rate is about 1:0.77 atm).

  4. It’s not a bad looking statue but definitely not worth it…and She-ablo isn’t really worth getting the Sideshow statue treatment in the first place. I would definitely prefer to see lower cost figures/statues of the playable classes, especially the Demon Hunter in all her goth-esque, hateful goodness…stilleto heels included of course. 🙂

  5. Wow…I thought that this was going to be like the full size statues like the ones that were at Blizzcon aka 5-6 ft tall statues (including the base). But then NOPE is the size of 5 apples. $350 is a rip off

  6. this -> “a lot of us would pay $15 for a hand-sized plastic toy of our favorite class, or some cool demon.”

  7. I’d be seriously embarrassed to show it off on a shelf or something where people could actually look at it. It’d go like this:

    “THAT is the boss of that game you’ve been talking about for the past 10 years? And you paid $350 for it? Here, have a hug!”

  8. I just sold my LE D3 Overthrown for a huge profit. I had it displayed for a year and finally got tired of seeing a damn OP barb in my room. Turned out to be a good investment. Probably won’t be picking this one up though, my excitement for D3 it not what it was when I bought the first one.

  9. I actually had made a pre-order at first, but after reading everyones comments, I thought about it more. I realized that I am really not that fond of the female Diablo. I want a badass buff one. So I have cancelled my order. Also the price is way to fuk’n steep. I had chosen the FLEXpay option that would allow me to pay this off in monthly chunks so I could afford it. But, I just don’t like it or want it enough.

    That being said, If they made a 21″ Tyrael statue. I would pay this much money for it without giving it a second thought.
