Blizzard is unveiling its next premium statue offering, which will be a very expensive Diablo 4 statue of the former Archangel Inarius.
Blizzard has officially unveiled its next premium statue offering, which will be an expensive likeness of the former Archangel Inarius. While diablo 4 With just months away from the June 2nd release date, Blizzard is already capitalizing on the anticipation of the game with quality merchandise. Inarius is not the first diablo 4 Statue announced by Blizzard, but it’s certainly the largest and most impressive yet built.
Inarius is a key figure in the lore of the Diablo franchise, but surprisingly hasn’t played a direct role in the three main series games so far. Inarius searched for an end to the endless conflict between heaven and hell, and in the process fell in love with the demoness Lilith. Together they created the world of Sanctuary and gave birth to the nephalem that would become humanity over many generations. Both Inarius and Lilith would eventually go insane and imprisoned, but have found their freedom for the events of diablo 4.
The new statue announced by Blizzard captures Inarius at a low point in his existence. After the end of the Sin War, Inarius was stripped of his connection to the Worldstone and imprisoned by the demon Mephisto. The statue that Blizzard is selling depicts Inarius in chains suffering eternal torment in the Burning Hells. He still wears his angelic armor and his wings stretch to his sides, but beneath his feet is the seething desolation of hell.
The Inarius statue is an impressive 22.5 x 8 x 26 inches and weighs 19 pounds. It’s absolutely massive. The statue is made of 80% polyresin and 20% PVC, making the materials used make and win the body of the statue. According to the product list, the Inarius statue is also hand-painted. That might partially explain why Blizzard is charging a whopping $1,100 before shipping.
While the statue itself is incredible, even of Blizzard’s statues, what makes it so appealing to Diablo fans is how linked it is to the upcoming release of diablo 4. Movie trailer for diablo 4 have shown that both Inarius and Lilith, the parents of mankind, come into conflict during the game. Why they were released, what they argue about and what that means for Sanctuary and humanity will be key questions diablo 4‘s story.
Matching this is the other large premium statue that Blizzard has already announced diablo 4 is none other than the demon Lilith. Lilith, holding Diablo’s skull, also weighs 19 pounds and is 24.5 inches tall. Unfortunately, Lilith won’t launch until August, but it’s available to pre-order now for $600. The price difference is not fully explained but is likely due to the size and detail differences. The wings are particularly striking. Anyway, hardcore diablo 4 Fans can have the pair on their shelves together if they can afford it.
diablo 4 Coming to PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X/S on June 2nd.
