NYCC 2017: First 4 Figures Castlevania Alucard Statue Photos!

Castlevania has long been a bit of a niche franchise that’s popular with hardcore video game fans. But that’s changing this year thanks to millions of new fans being exposed to Castlevania thanks to the Netflix series. And the timing couldn’t have worked out any better, because after debuting in the Season 1 finale of the series this summer, a fan-favorite vampire is coming in Statue form: the First 4 Figures Alucard Statue debuted at NYCC 2017!

F4F CEO Alex Davis has been hyping up the level of sculpting detail on their upcoming Alucard Statue for a couple months now on the weekly Q&A, so when Alucard made his debut at New York Comic Con 2017 this weekend, I was really expecting to see something great—and I did.

From both sculpting and paint perspectives, this is easily among the absolute most detailed pieces that First4Figures has ever done.

Close-Up of Texture on F4F Alucard Statue NYCC 2017There’s a rich texture on Alucard’s coat that contrasts nicely with the smoothness of his cape, and the sheer amount of paint hits this figure is going to require during production looks like it’s going to be off the charts.

This is a detail that I think a lot of companies would have missed that I think adds a lot to the overall piece.

Alucard Statue First 4 Figures New York Comic Con 2017I thought that maybe Alucard’s left hand was missing at the convention because F4F was withholding something super-secret about it, but it turns out the hand was just left in the box during assembly for the show and couldn’t be retrieved from storage. The left hand will be holding the cape on the final statue.

2017 NYCC Castlevania Alucard Statue Base F4FI’ve heard some gripes about the base for Alucard being a bit plain, but seeing it in person, I was really okay with it. The cobblestone terrain that Alucard is standing on looks appropriate and doesn’t distract away from the exquisite detail of the figure itself.

An ornate gold rim is going to be added to the base to make it pop more, at which point I think it will win most folks over.

The Exclusive Version of Alucard wasn’t shown at NYCC, but should come with a fantastic extra accessory of some sort, since it’s confirmed that the EX item won’t be a more elaborate base.

Lots of fans have been waiting for this reveal, so let’s hear it, F4Fans: how do you like the Alucard Statue? Is this figure everything that you hoped for, and is he a “buy” as he is right now?
