Dark Horse brings Witcher 3’s leshen to life

The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt players will recognize the leshen from the woods of Valen.

Dark Horse Direct and Polish game developer CD Project Red have collaborated on an imposing reproduction of an enemy from the latter’s current-gen RPG The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt.

The leshen, a magic-wielding denizen of the forest, is recreated in this 15-inch (17.5-inch with stand) statue currently available for pre-order now through Dark Horse. Pre-orders are $119.99 and carry a tentative shipping window of December 2019 to February 2020. The final number of statues available is to be determined, but the listing states the leshen will only be available to those who pre-order it.

The video game character is based on the leshy, a forest deity in Slavic mythology that presided over hunting.

Dark Horse’s blog post states the leshen statue is its “first-ever tribute to the legendary monsters from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt,” hinting that other beasts may receive a similar treatment in the future.
