“Naruto Shippuden.” Naruto, Sasuke and Sakura mark the start of this exciting series.

The characters are recreated in 1/6th scale, a statue size Gecco excels 
at. This scale is the perfect size to capture the sensitive facial expressions, atmosphere and to sculpt every single detail of the costume

Metal Gear Survive, Wanderer 1/6 scale statue by Gecco

Wanderer, the enemy that players encounter most frequently in “Metal
Gear Survive” is expertly recreated as a 1/6 scale statue.

Once a regular human being, the Wanderer transformed into a hideous 
freak monster after being infected with an unknown lifeform.
Originally designed by Masahiro Ito this disturbing but memorable 
character was perfectly captured in 3D by sculptor Shinya Yamaoka and is 
topped off by painter Katsushige Akeyama.

The finely sculpted crystals peppered all over his body present a stark 
contrast to the beautiful stoic muscles of his former human self. A true 
highlight of this statue.

Great care was taken in deciding the pose from every angle capturing the 
eerie atmosphere and feature of the character, a nod to his name.
The large crystal on his head, the most recognizable feature of this 
grotesque creature, lights up with a powerful LED just like it appears 
in the game.

The base with the amputated arms of the Wanderer is designed to express 
the savage world of “Dite” covered with dust and sand.

Dark Souls Black Knight 1/6 scale statue by Gecco Revealed

Black Knight (Kurokishi) is the formidable enemy from the video game  Dark Souls consistently challenging players on their journey. This  character is faithfully recreated as a 1/6 scale statue, thoroughly 
supervised by the design team of FromSoftware.

The concept of Fire, Ash and Soot, which represents the world of Dark Souls is engraved on the Black Knight’s armor, and the intricate and 
beautiful design are captured by using traditional sculpture techniques.

The Black Knight was once the proud Silver Knight of Gwyn and was burnt 
black. You will see the dull silver in the scorched black surface 
recreated by the exacting paint work.

This statue stands over 40 cm/16 inches tall creating an intimidating 
presence even in 1/6 scale.

Moreover, the eyes light up with LED, which further enhances the uncanny 
character.

The weapons and shield were digitally sculpted in precise detail.*The 
Black Knight Greatsword, Greataxe and Halberd are all included as a 
bonus with the pre-order.

The pre-painted statue is sculpted by Sinya Yamaoka, digitally sculpted by Masaki Akao, and painted by Katsushige Akeyama. Out in June-July 2019, it retails for $469.99.
