I’ve Always Wanted a Dread Pirate

Dread Pirate Roberts

I think its safe to call The Princess Bride a timeless classic. I’ve always been fond of it, and I don’t believe I’ve ever met anyone who felt otherwise. That said, I never thought I’d ever see any merchandise based off the film, or book for that matter, and certainly not a collectible figure. Fortunately, that didn’t stop Factory Entertainment from delivering. Introducing their 1/5th scale Dread Pirate Roberts. This 15″ statue features the Man in Black as he appears during his infamous duel atop the “Cliffs of Insanity.” It actually¬† has a companion piece featuring Inigo Montoya which you can view below. The two statues are designed to attach to each other, allowing you to capture the scene properly.

Both the Inigo Montoya and Dread Pirate Roberts figures come sold separately, retailing for ~$250, and and will limited to 500 pieces each. If you’re into collecting them mint in box, you’ll also be pleased to know that its a full-color presentation, though you’ll still need to remove the figures should you want to interlock them to create the miniature diorama described above.¬† Both figures are available for pre-order, and are currently scheduled to ship sometime this spring.
