Gecco has announced and revealed a 1/6 scale statue of Artorias the Abysswalker from the FromSoftware action RPG Dark Souls.
This item has been meticulously crafted, with the posing explicitly recreated and based on the scene he first appears. His body, comprised of armor, shows evident wear and tear alongside a well-used blade. Plus, his broken left arm has been left intact. Further, the pedestal is based on the location of Oolacile.
The full statue description is quoted below:
“From the renowned high difficulty action RPG, DARK SOULS, ” Artorias the Abysswalker” is recreated as a 1/6 scale statue with thorough supervision by FromSoftware’s design team.
The posing is based on the tension-filled scene that Artorias first appears in, and the moment that the statue looks best is captured. The pose, with his upper body bent over, aiming at the player, is reminiscent of his symbol, wolf.
Although his entire body has been corrupted by the darkness of the abyss, the finely designed armor, which implies that he was once a noble knight, is expertly sculpted.
The chainmail is woven in the same way as real armor and pasted onto the prototype. The shredded chainmail and the part visible through the cracked armor are also highlights.
The base is made in the image of the arena of Oolacile, where the showdown battle takes place, and the abyssal darkness that corrupts Artorias is recreated at the foot.
It captures the left arm, which was deeply wounded in the past battle and will never be able to move again, hanging down helplessly.
Almost the entire body has frames made of a hard material (ABS), and the frames are covered with a material (PVC) that can capture the fine details, which prevents deformation even during long-term display.”

Elden Ring features the action systems that FromSoftware has proven effective through their Dark Souls series, but the team has also focused on building a narrative with this title. With the help of Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin, the game features a fantasy story where players control the fate of this world.
