About Bloodborne
Bloodborne is an action RPG created by the team of Sony Computer Entertainment Japan Studio and FromSoftware, who developed the impressive “Demon’s Souls” game freaking out players around the globe.

This game takes place in the cursed ancient city “Yharnam,” where the endemic disease is transforming people into beasts. The main character “Hunter” wipes out the infected individuals, who are no longer human. The game attracts enthusiastic fans with great satisfaction after going through desperate battles, the carefully-plotted world, and the addictive gameplay.

About Hunter
The Hunter is the protagonist who makes his way through the cursed town of Yharnam, seeking the remedy to cure his disease, and getting a transfusion of Yharnam’s blood at “Iosefka’s Clinic.”

After the treatment, he suffers from a nightmare of blood and beast. Following his first death, he meets the Messengers at “Hunter’s Dream” and gets equipped with weapons for hunting beasts and ultimately becoming the hunter. Armed with his weapons he is ready to face the catastrophic situation going on in Yharnam.

Figure features
The main visuals of the video game’s jacket is recreated as a fine art statue, capturing both the front and picturesque back side. Thoroughly supervised by FromSoftware, all the details of the
protagonist “Hunter” dressed in his “Hunter Set” are faithfully sculpted. His “Saw Cleaver” is armed in his right hand, and “Hunter Blunderbuss” is in his left hand. The saw can transform into a cleaver just like in the video game.

Cobblestones and puddles are recreated on the round base, capturing the video game’s world. This statue features the game’s unique gothic atmosphere. The sculpture also captures the character’s heroic yet subtle posture standing amidst the deadly “plagued” air of the environment.

Puddle of Blood Version
The special color version of “Puddle of Blood” is limited to only 1,200 pieces worldwide. The puddle on the base of the original version is replaced with a splattering of blood.

The Hunter was also splashed with blood after slaying the beasts. M. Rollin (KESARAN PASARAN) joined the creative team as a guest painter and took great care capturing the blood effects in this unique release, balancing the bloody and violent world of “Bloodborne” with the subtle moody atmosphere. The special bloody paint work was carefully designed to accentuate the sculpture staying away from the often clich├ęd violence and gore.
