Vampire Hunter D’s New Statue Is Just Amazing

Figurama Collectors

Fans of Vampire Hunter D rejoice! A massive new statue is on the way showing off the pale hero from Figurama Collectors. This statue is based on D as he appeared in the second animated feature, Bloodlust, and Yoshitaka Amano’s artwork. D is astride his mechanical steed, mowing down the unfortunate souls who have been turned into vampires. The detail here is spectacular. Even the symbiote on D’s Left Hand is present. D also has interchangeable heads showing off his porcelain beauty or his vampiric rage.

The statue stands over 30″ tall and is made from mixed media: polystone, PVC, etc. Only 650 pieces are being made, and Yoshitaka Amano signs each. This work of art is priced at $1,980, and a payment plan is available from Figurama Collectors.

This version of D is closely modeled after the illustrations of Yoshitaka Amano featured in the Vampire Hunter D novels. This influence is palpable in the ornate touches of the statue. D is seated astride his rearing cybernetic horse with his crescent longsword and sentient symbiote, Left Hand. The snarling fangs of his fierce expression are surrounded by flowing dark hair, and his head is topped with a pointed hat of the most intricate gothic detail. The shining diecast metal of D’s longsword and the impassioned expression of Left Hand are indistinguishable from the movie. D’s armor is an inky black highlighted by fine gold ornamentations reminiscent of Amano’s work, and the long swoop of his dark cape curves near the base. Each panel and wiry fiber of the cybernetic horse can be made out as it rears onto its hind legs, suspended in movement above graveyard markers.  Mechanical hooves seem to drip with moisture from the angled base below, featuring a length of rock and twisting branches that jut from a rippling pool of water. Three red-eyed ghouls reach from the murky depths towards the majestic frame of D and his horse suspended in battle.

The sequel to the 1985 adaptation of Hideyuki Kikuchi’s manga was a visual delight but a bit of a mess regarding the narrative. The ’85 film has a more straightforward story, and a bit of an arc for D, whereas Bloodlust throws so much at you that D gets lost in the mix.

What do you think of D’s new statue? Let us know below.
