Dark Horse Comics has announced a new series of three limited-edition Elfquest busts scheduled for a November release.

The busts are sculpted by Tim Bruckner, with guidance from Elfquest creators Wendy Pini and Richard Pini.

Each bust in the Elfquest series measures about 5.5 inches, and the body pivots on the base, allowing the owner to set up exact placement and position. Meticulously hand-painted, each limited-edition piece is individually numbered.

"We feel these busts are some of the best we have done so far," Dark Horse's David Scroggy said, "and are happy to say that the creators agree."

Scroggy said the busts deal originated at New York Comic-Con in February when Dark Horse was lining up characters from modern comics for a new group of 1940s-inspired "syroco"-style statuettes.

"We asked Wendy and Richard if we could do one of Elfquest. Our timing was good, as figure rights, which had been tied up elsewhere, had just reverted to the Pinis," Scroggy said. "They agreed to let us do Cutter in this style, but in reviewing our display at the Comic-Con, Wendy admired Tim Bruckner's work on our group of Hellboy Animated busts, and thought that this format, along with Tim's specific stylistic approach to it, might be the best one for her audience.

"A deal was struck, and work commenced. It was decided to create three stand-alone pieces, but to have them enjoy a special relationship that suggested emotion and interaction when displayed as a set. As Cutter took shape through rough clay and more finished versions, excitement grew at both Dark Horse and at Warp Graphics. The result was such a realization of her personal vision that upon final approval Wendy told us that 'you made this Elfmom cry.'

"To which Tim Bruckner replied 'Making creators cry is nothing new to me; it happens all the time. But this is the first time it has ever happened in a good way.'"

Edition is set at 1,500 per character, so allocation might occur. Dark Horse is supervising worldwide sales territory for the busts, which have a suggested retail price of $49.99 per character.
