The Resident Evil Licker statue is horrible but in the good sort of mutant horror way.
Numskull has released a limited edition version. Limited but not exclusive, Geek Native received a flurry of emails from geeky merchants with the news that they, too, have the statue on pre-order.
Today, the analysis that I’ve done suggests that the Just Geek (£79.99) and Zavvi (£79.99), both with good shipping, are the best two. Zavvi puts the release date at 30th September 2022, but Just Geek won’t say.
Collectors who want more zombies might note that Zavvi also has a limited edition Tyrant statue from Numskull, too, due out in July.
The Licker, which is truly grotesque, is 16.5cm tall and has hand-painted details. Yes, that’s an exposed brain, a tongue from nightmares and claws that would have no problem with even the toughest sprues.
In contrast, this previous Licker model is on Ebay for about £370.
None of which, sadly, compete with this far less icky Licker model for anyone brave enough to ship AliExpress.
