I’m so proud of myself for not making an as you wish reference. If I were that kind of a hack, I’d say Quantum Mechanix is in the wish fulfilling business with its Dread Pirate Roberts figure.
I don’t feel like we’ve gotten a ton of merchandise from The Princess Bride even though it’s the ideal kind of movie line for figures. We’ve gotten a couple of Funko Pop figures, but certainly nothing of this quality.
In the write-up, QMx makes sure to note that The Dread Pirate Roberts aka Wesley is the first of its 1:6 Master Series from the line. I could certainly see myself getting into this line depending on how deep QMx truly gets with it. I’d assume we’d at least get a Inigo Montoya figure, but a Fezzik figure would be amazing.

Here’s the details:
This 1:6-scale figure re-creates this iconic character in exquisite 1:6 detail. Standing approximately 12 inches tall, every element, from his pirate tunic to his rapier, is authentically reproduced.
He has two different heads; The masked Dread Pirate Roberts and the unmasked Westley – both with the authentic, hand-painted likeness of Cary Elwes (mask and headscarf are not removable). His electroplated sword fits into the scabbard on his belt, part of the detailed black pirate costume he wore throughout the film. Various gloved hands are included for assorted swashbuckling activities. Also included is the wine goblet from his battle of wits and a logo display stand.

The figure is slated for release in September so the wait won’t be unbearable. You can pre-order him now at Entertainment Earth.com and Sideshow Collectibles.
