Quite a paperweight.

The first large piece of Diablo III merchandise, this large, highly-detailed statue of the Barbarian standing on Diablo's skull was created by Side Show Toys and went on sale in mid-2009. The first round of 750 statues sold out in two days, and they then went into back order.

As of 2011 the statues are sold out, and can only be obtained via ebay and other resale points. Prices start at $500, a considerable increase of the initial $300 price.

Medievaldragon: Are you eventually developing a polystone diorama for each of the five Diablo III classes? i.e. the Witch Doctor and the Wizard?
