20 lbs. Of Death And His Bird - TriForce Announces 'Darksiders II' Statue

Their "Death And Dust" premium statue is on the way next year from the high-end replica maker. Will this Horseman be visiting your home?

The statue, which will be available sometime after March, stands at an imposing 32" and features Death and his bird guide Dust on the prowl. The design is based on the work of now-former Vigil Creative Director Joe Madureira, and is fully painted with working LED lights for the eyes.

Hey, it's even got a nice chunk of backstory:

Like his fellow Horsemen, Death is of a race known as Nephilim – among the most powerful beings in the Universe. When Mankind was given the prize of Eden, Absalom – leader of the Nephilim – led his armies against Heaven and Hell in an attempt to steal it back. For this crime, the Charred Council condemned the Nephilim to destruction. The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse were granted a reprieve from this fate on the condition they aid the Council’s victory over their kin. The Horsemen accepted, but it was Death who bore the greatest burden of guilt for the near extinction of his race. Donning his iconic mask to represent his role as executioner on the day he slaughtered his brethren, he has not removed it since.

The statue is available for preorder now on the TriForce site, but it's gonna cost you: they're asking for a $150 deposit on this $600 statue in advance of its Q2 2013 release.
