DID ANYONE EVER TELL YOU YOU’D MAKE A GREAT DREAD PIRATE ROBERTS…

“… Fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love, miracles… ” if you know these words then you know the 1987 classic The Princess Bride…one of the greatest novels ever written…as well as the greatest films…The Princess Bride has been as timeless as films like Star Wars…Raiders of the Lost Ark & Ghostbusters.

Now Sideshow is bringing you one of the greatest looking toys based off this movie (which there aren’t many of)…Westley as the Dread Pirate Roberts…or as you also might know him as…The Man in Black…

Per the website the details for this incredible figure are as follows…

This sixth scale figure re-creates the iconic character in exquisite detail. Standing approximately 12 inches tall, every element, from his pirate’s 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.
