Ray Harryhausen‘s iconic Cyclops has been recreated in stunning detail by X-Plus
From the land beyond beyond. From the world past hope and fear. I bid you Genie now appear!
Now and then, we at Future of the Force come across a collectible which blows our minds – and today my inner child has had a joy-gasm! Pre-orders have gone live for the sensational 7th Voyage of Sinbad – Cyclops PVC Statue from X-Plus, which is part of their new Ray Harryhausen 100 Collection.
This breathtaking statue replicates the iconic battle in Ray Harryhausen‘s creature feature which finds Sinbad and his crew encountering the one-eyed behemoth on the island of Colossa. The statue stands over 12.5″ tall, on a beachfront diorama base. The eye of the Cyclops can be rotated, and it has an articulated jaw.

Here’s the official line:
This is the 100th Anniversary for Ray Harryhausen, the master of movie stop motion animation. In his honor Star Ace is proud to release the Cyclops, the terrifying protector of the genie’s lamp in The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad. He carries his huge, spiked battle club and his single eye can be rotated. His jaw is articulated for different display options.
Traditionally sculpted by the artisans of the famed creature shop by X-Plus Kaibutsuya, this detailed Cyclops statue is made from soft vinyl and stands 32cm tall. Each piece is hand-painted to bring out the very fine details of the sculpt.
The Deluxe version of this statue includes a display base with rocky beach terrain and has Sinbad and another sailor battling the giant monster.
