The Witcher has become one of the most popular game franchises in recent years, selling more than 50 million copies worldwide as of 2020. The video game series is based on books by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski, acting as a sequel.

The first Witcher game was released in 2007, followed by The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings in 2009 and The Witcher 3: The Wild Hunt in 2015 by the publisher CD Projekt Red. The Witcher 3 also has expansion packs, Heart of Stone (2015) and Blood and Wine (2016).

Geralt is such an iconic character with a distinctive design and as a fan of the series, I decided to get the Geralt Deluxe figure from Heart of Stone.

Witcher 3: Wild Hunt Geralt Deluxe Statue

Overview

  • Manufacturer: Dark Horse Comics
  • Ages: 14+
  • Height: 10 inches (~ 25.5 cm)

This figure was released on February 17th, 2021 due to popular demand since Dark Horse Comics’ first Geralt of Rivia figure.

Packaging

The Geralt statue comes in a large white box, standing about 12.6 inches tall, 7.9 inches wide and 6.8 inches deep. The figure is fastened to the blister packaging inside, so it’s safe from any mishandling of the box.

Only the front and a little bit of the top are transparent, the bottom has all the necessary information printed on it and the remaining sides have additional imagery.

From my Ellie statue I roughly knew how heavy the figure would be and despite its size, it weighs only 12 and 1/4 ounces. It feels sturdy and definitely not flimsy at all.

Sculpting and Paint

Right out of the box I noticed the precise sculpting and attention to detail on Geralt’s figure.

The Figure Base

The base of the figure is hollow and about 1.4 inches tall. At the bottom there is information about trademark and copyright of The Witcher, where it was made and the figure’s assigned number.

The grey Wolf School medaillon makes the top part of the base. I like that it’s not just flat paint or a simple carving but it has various depths and ridges to it that give it a nice feel. The added weathering is a nice touch.

Geralt’s Likeness

I personally think that they did a really great job with the way his face looks. It closely matches the in-game character and I think that’s one of the most important things when collecting figures and statues.

I like that you can choose between two heads – one with a windswept half-ponytail and beard (like in The Witcher 3 base game), the other with slightly lighter grey loose hair, clean shaven and the extra scars that he had received in the Hearts of Stone expansion pack.

The faces aren’t flat but all the bumps, ridges and wrinkles are sculpted to be as realistic as possible. I like that the scars aren’t just painted flat on the skin but they are actually carved into his face.

The few loose strands on the Hearts of Stone head might be at risk of breaking if you’re not careful. They seem a bit flexible but I’d still be cautious when handling it.

The ‘original’ head has one slightly wonky eye paint but it’s not a big deal since you’d have to look closely. I’m amazed how much detail can people do on such small real estate!

Geralt’s Clothes and Body Details

This Geralt figure is sculpted with the classic Kaer Morhen armor – leather breastplate, chainmail corset & pauldrons, leather belts and boots.

Every piece of armor and clothing is sculpted to the littlest detail. Buckles, ties, stitches and chainmail are all sculpted, none of the clothing details is just painted on the figure. The longer I look at the figure, the more incredible details I find!

While writing this review and taking the photos, I noticed that the belt around his waist actually has stitches too. The tunic and his pants have a well-worn appearance and there is weathering done on the pauldrons and the boots look scuffed.

These little details all add to the overall look of the figure and the precise paintjob with no bleeding or chipping.

Geralt’s Accessories

It wouldn’t be Geralt without his swords, right?

This figure features two swords – Geralt is holding the Enhanced Griffin Silver Sword and the Enhanced Griffin Steel Sword is on his back.

I love the attention of detail on both swords – the little Griffin heads on the silver sword handle and the twisted cross guard on the steel sword. There’s a Trophy Hook hanging from Geralt’s belt on his right side. The swords and the hook feel sturdy and not flimsy at all.

It took me a while to notice at first but Geralt is wearing the Wolf School medaillon. Even though it’s tiny, I can clearly see every detail, including the eyes, mouth and the mane, it’s not just a silver blob.

Final Thoughts

The precise sculpting and paintjob make this deluxe Geralt figure a stunning addition to your collection and is worth every penny.

My overall rating: 10/10
