Konami’s Castlevania: Symphony of the Night was the first Castlevania game I ever finished. Something about the sheer size of the map and all loadout possibilities intrigued me. The game’s popularity has managed to keep it from fading into obscurity. The game is even available on mobile now.
Figurama Collectors also think SotN is popular enough to warrant a massive 1/6th scale statue featuring Alucard and Richter Belmont. The 36″ tall statue makes the most of its size by squeezing in tons of callbacks to Symphony of the Night. There are enemies, familiars, weapons, Dracula’s throne, and the inverted castle. This massive work of art will run you $1,285. This is a pretty fair price for the size compared to other giant statues we’ve covered in the past.
Inspired by Ayami Kojima’s vision of the character, Alucard manifests from a trail of mist, wielding a holy rosary in one hand and his blade in the other as he cuts down the undead enemies lurking the library’s halls. A vampire bat soars from Alucard’s billowing cloak while a wolf’s head adorns the base behind him, representing the dhampir’s animal transformations. Beneath Alucard’s levitating form, Richter Belmont cracks the famed whip, Vampire Killer, against a skull-headed Spellbook and Lesser Demon. The golden, gothic splendor of the library’s furnishings feature layers of intricate paintwork and authentic, gilded details. Hiding in the wreckage of the battlefield, countless relics surround the crimson-carpeted stairway—a vial of Holy Water, ornate candelabras, over two dozen ancient volumes, a discarded blade, and a ceremonial Stone Mask. Cast in shadow, the silhouette of the statue invokes a similar shape to Dracula’s Castle, with Alucard’s upheld sword, the bat’s wing, and the monster’s arms serving as allusions of its towers and spires.
The only thing this statue is missing is the Succubus. Sure, it would have made the whole thing more adult than it should be; I love that character design. But who doesn’t want a big busty succubus in the mix? Come on!
