Since 1996, the Diablo name has been a favorite among gamers and today NECA has announced the first of their collectibles based on the popular game series. Their first offering has been brought to life in a collaboration between Blizzard’s senior sculptor Brian Fay and NECA’s own Alex Heinke.
It is an evil steeped in the smoldering fires of Hell with terrifying precision, Diablo! This deluxe action figure stands over 9-inches tall, with a poseable tail that is over 12-inches long. Each Diablo figure is hand-painted and features over 25 points of articulation. It is due to be released in March 2014. Online retailer BigBadToyStore has Diablo available for pre-order and priced at $24.99, $5 off the suggested retail price.
Also available is a prop replica of the El’Druin The Sword of Justice. This recreation of Archangel Tyrael’s legendary weapon was built directly from digital files used in-game, and measures nearly three and a half feet long. It also features a pulsing blue LED light in the hilt, simulating the awesome protective powers the sword draws from the High Heavens. This too is available for pre-order here. (Source: NECA)
