There’s talk of a new Red Sonja movie starring someone who isn’t a redhead. Odds are she’ll also be wearing a lot of body armor because we’re not allowed to have sexy escapism anymore. Well, screw that. Give me the traditional Sonja any day.
Ask, and ye shall receive! We spotted this new 1/12 scale Red Sonja figure, and she looks fantastic. Rather than going the traditional route with visible joints at the limbs, this Sonja is constructed with a metal skeleton overlayed with a seamless skin. This is similar to what Mezco is doing with their new Xenomorph figure.
Executive Replica’s Red Sonja will be arriving this month, and she can be pre-ordered right now from the Big Bad Toy Store.
Red Sonja is known as an outlaw, mercenary, warrior and queen. After escaping her bloody origin, she hunted the wilderlands of Hyrkania, theived the streets and palaces of Pah-Disha, sold her sword on battlefields from Koth to Aquilonia, and liberated countless mugs of ale from barrels throughout the Hyborean world.
This battle maiden is so fierce that she only needs the skimpiest armor while battling her enemies. What? You want her to wear a formless battle suit that doesn’t accentuate her curves? Get out of here with that nonsense! Not everything in fiction has to mirror the real world or our ever-changing views.
The legendary red-haired warrior comes with the following accessories:
- 3 Sets of hands
- Battle top with attached shoulder guard
- Battle bottom
- Sword and sheath
- Dagger and sheath
- Pair of thigh bands
I can’t say for sure if Sonja is anatomically accurate under that armor, but boy, do I hope so.
What do you think of this Red Sonja figure? Let us know in the comments section below.
