Look out Ray Harryhausen fans because Star Ace Toys is bringing the 2-Horned Cyclops from The 7th Voyage of Sinbad to the X-Plus Collection. After unveiling a mindblowing statue of Ray Harryhausen’s one-horned Cyclops, the toy giant has set its sights on the second version of Ray’s iconic creature from the classic 1958 movie. And as always, the team has done a fantastic job! In the film, the 2-Horned Cyclops stumbles into Sokurah’s cave and encounters the magician’s enormous Dragon. And after a titanic tussle between the creatures, the Cyclops falls victim to the Dragon’s lethal jaws.
The Cyclops is Ray Harryhausen’s most beloved creation. One that has inspired generations of fans from all corners of the globe. And now, Star Ace Toys has replicated its majesty in all its glory. The 12.5″ tall soft vinyl statue features the creature in one of its iconic poses from the movie. Which is complemented by a movable eye, and an articulated jaw. But as is always the case, Star Ace Toys have upped the ante by crafting a second “Deluxe” version. And that boasts a miniature recreation of the cave entrance from the dragon’s lair. Read on for the full details.
THE 2-HORNED CYCLOPS
The master of stop-motion special Effects, Ray Harryhausen, created many memorable creatures. One of the most popular is the Cyclops and he did more than one version. Star Ace had such great success with the original single horned Cyclops that now they are bringing out the 2-horned version, most famous for fighting a dragon.
This menacing creature has an articulated eyeball that can be rotated. His jaw is also articulated for different display options. Traditionally sculpted by the artisans of the famed creature shop of 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.
This Deluxe version of this statue includes a polyresin display base with a miniature recreation of the cave entrance from the dragon’s lair.
