A new addition to the Ray Harryhausen Collection has been revealed by Star Ace Toys. They have announced the Jason and the Argonauts – Talos Vinyl Statue, which is being produced by X-Plus. In the 1963 film, Jason and his Argonauts travel to the Isle of Bronze so that his crew may find food and supplies. Ignoring the warnings of Hera to take only provisions, Hercules removes a massive broach. The thievery awakens the gigantic statue of the Greek god Talos, who attacks the Argonauts for stealing from his protected land. After destroying their ship, the Argo, Jason and his crew turn to Hera, who instructs them to remove the plug from his ankle. The statue falls, crushing one of Jason’s crew. Hercules, broken by the cost of his betrayal, and refusing the accept the fate of his friend, stays behind on the Isle of Bronze while the remaining Argonauts flee.
The Talos statue stands over 12.5″ tall and is cast in soft vinyl. It features a sword in one hand, and Jason’s ship, the Argo, being pulled from the water in the other. A Deluxe Version will also be available, which features a polyresin diorama rock display base from the scene. The statue is priced at $288.99 for the Deluxe Version.
