The Witcher 3 is one of the most popular games in recent years, and has been widely adapted for film. Now, McFarlane Toys has released action figures based on characters from the game.
Netflix’s The Witcher Action Figures Arrive from McFarlane Toys is a news article that talks about the arrival of the action figures from McFarlane Toys.
There’s no better time for McFarlane Toys to make good on its December 2023 promise for their action figure line based on the hit Netflix series than now, with The Witcher season 2 on the way. The initial batch of toys contains 7-inch scale replicas of Jaskier, two distinct Geralt figurines, and a scaled Kikimora monster as seen in the first season, all of which have likenesses to the characters from the show. The single figurines are about $29.99, while the bigger Kikimora is roughly $39.99, and the whole set is available to buy now, with delivery on December 19th.
The figurines, like other McFarlane tie-in toys, are super-articulated with numerous joints, allowing you to position them in almost any manner you choose, whether to replicate scenarios from the show or create your own. Geralt comes with a sword, fabric cloak, season 1 realistic armor, and a standing base in the first edition, while the combat version emphasizes the character’s darker side with an angry, pale visage as he prepares to confront the monster Kikimora in the battle version. The monster itself includes 22 movable components, including different points of articulation along its ugly legs, as well as an alternate head with a hidden hole through which Geralt’s sword may strike a deadly blow.
After the success of Nightmare of the Wolf, The Witcher is getting another anime film.
This initial wave, as every toy collector knows, will be followed by others from the series, but don’t anticipate them to arrive in a flood, since these things take time. As a rough timetable, we might see a second wave of preorders arriving in time for the start of season 2 in December, and then we’ll likely have to wait a few months for any more news. It may be feasible to have a decent collection growing by the time Season 3 premieres at the end of 2023.
In addition to the McFarlane line of toys, Funko fans may pre-order their own Geralt on his horse Roach to add to their Pop figure collections. This is the first Witcher figurine to be produced, but like with other Funko Pop collections, they never stop at just one.
At their recent TUDUM event, Netflix revealed a lot of teases and goodies for Witcher fans, including the release date for season 2 and the promise of a third season. In addition, they announced that the property would expand with another animated feature and a children’s series, demonstrating that Netflix is completely committed to bringing The Witcher world to life. Season 2’s description was published on the streamer’s website, providing a sneak peek at what’s coming in December.
It says: “Geralt of Rivia takes Princess Cirilla to his boyhood home of Kaer Morhen, certain that Yennefer’s life was lost during the Battle of Sodden. While the Continent’s kings, elves, humans, and demons fight for dominance on the outside, he must defend the girl from a much more deadly threat: the strange power she possesses inside.”
Season 1 of The Witcher and the anime film Nightmare of the Wolf are both available to watch on Netflix right now, with season 2 of The Witcher arriving on December 17th.
