We were simply blown away when we saw the final painted prototype of Sideshow Collectibles’ Arthas Menethil statue on our recent trip to their Thousand Oaks facility.

Blizzard Entertainment and Sideshow Collectibles are proud to announce this incredible new polystone statue that perfectly captures the former paladin’s icy terror. Meticulously sculpted by fine artist Brian Fay (whose body of work includes the Headless Horseman and Arthas deluxe figures from DC Direct) this museum-quality maquette realizes the Lich King as never before at a massive 19 inches (482 mm) high, atop a glacier-blue base. Hand-painted, frosted, and finished with unique edition numbers, Arthas represents just the first in an as-of-yet undisclosed new series of collectible offerings for 2012 and beyond.

As a bonus for the World of Warcraft community, Sideshow has created exclusive desktop images to celebrate the release of this statue.

To see more images of the final piece or to pre-order the limited edition collectible (shipping Winter 2012 at a suggested retail price of $349.99 USD), head on over to Sideshow's website.
