    RED SONJA COVER BY ADAM HUGHES “IMMORTALIZED”!

    Dynamite Brings Rare RRP Adam Hughes cover to life


    October 4, 2006, Runnemede, NJ – Dynamite Entertainment released images and information today concerning the release of the Dynamite Select: Adam Hughes Red Sonja Statue (OCT063322). Based on the cover of the EXTREMELY RARE RRP edition of Red Sonja #2 by Adam Hughes, this 9” tall rendition of the She-Devil with a sword was beautifully sculpted by Shawn Nagle, who has produced pieces for Marvel, Toybiz, Diamond and Neca.

    Dynamite stated, “Starting with our premiere issue last year, the response to Red Sonja’s adventures through the Hyperion Age have been incredible. Reviews for Red Sonja, her mini-series and events have been spectacular. Fans new and old have been reading this book and are thrilled at what we’ve done- especially with the recent return of the villainous Kulan Gath!”

    “In the formula for Red Sonja’s success, of course, are the creators! In addition to our regular team of Michael Avon Oeming, Mel Rubi, Brian Buchellato and Stephen Sadowski, there have been so many great creators chipping in- Frank Cho, Jim Lee, Roy Thomas, John Romita (Jr. and Sr.), Michael Turner, Marc Silvestri- the list goes on. The cover that Adam Hughes did for the RRP of issue #2 is a great contribution, and we are absolutely ecstatic to be able to bring his work to life. From the Amazons to Zatanna, Adam’s portraits of the women of comics are infallible. And to have the hands of Shawn Nagle produce this piece is something amazing on its own. Shawn has sculpted some of the greatest comic and cinema characters of all time, never missing a single detail. His sculpture of Red Sonja is no exception- Shawn sculpted the She-Devil with a sword masterfully, bringing out every detail of this rare edition. And Adam loved it, which is the highest honor we could get!”

      Hmm, kinda cool but not the best.

      Needs a little more color IMO.

      and the $$$ scares the crap out of me!

        If I bought one of those I'd be way to tempted to paint it.

        I'm pretty good at painting models, but even if I did an A+ job it would destroy the value of it.

          I have this thing with figurines/statues where I don't buy if it exceeds 40$

          I do find the statue really sweet, but 150$ US + shipping + customs then convert into CAN$... it's just too high price for something that I'll leave on my desk and collect dust

          How about something of a "mcfarlane" kind of figurine of Red Sonja (Xena/Ash too would be nice)? Soemthing mopre affordable... and still detailed...
