DARKNESS FIGURE RETURNS ... IN A TANK
Special-edition MM5 Figure Coming Back in 2003
Friday, January 03, 2003

If you missed the Lord of Darkness figure when it was initially released in Movie Maniacs Series 5 in 2002, start thanking the gods of the underworld now: You'll have another shot at getting this evil demon from the film Legend.

That's right, McFarlane Toys is releasing a special limited-edition version of Darkness. And this one's even more special. Though the figure itself is the exact same sculpt (6 7/8 inches tall to top of skull, 14 points of articulation), there are small paint changes, particularly on the cape. The biggest change, though, is the addition of a custom base to the figure (see included photography for more details on the base).

And, of course, it's packaged in a collectible fishtank display case. Lord of Darkness includes his battle sword and horn.

This deluxe package will be produced in very limited quantities and will be offered to all specialty retailers. Look for it on shelves in April.
