Drizzt Do’Urden. It’s a legendary name among Dungeons & Dragons fans.
It’s a good time to be a fan of Dungeons & Dragons. The game has never been more popular, and there’s so much content out there, from all-new campaigns and source books to online streams released almost constantly and all-new Drizzt novels from R.A. Salvatore. With a new video game coming in 2020, featuring Drizzt Do’Urden, one of the most popular and recognizable characters in the Forgotten Realms, we thought it was finally time to put the iconic drow into action figure form, Hasbro style.
The chance to display Drizzt on our desks and shelves, posed out with his swords and companion Guenhwyvar, have a lot of us inside Hasbro excited. We know a few things about making highly poseable, six-inch figures with cool accessories. But it was vital to this project that we do justice not only to Drizzt, who’s such a huge part of so many people’s love of the Forgotten Realms, but to fans who’ve been following his adventures for so long.
And Drizzt wouldn’t be Drizzt without his panther companion Guenhwyvar, so the team knew we needed to include her in this pack, not just as an accessory — though the Figurine of Wondrous Power carved in her likeness is in there — but as a figure with articulation, so she could be posed right beside Drizzt.
Iconic characters like these two deserve iconic packaging, so we enlisted the comic book and concept artist Max Dunbar to create an illustration of Drizzt and Guenhwyvar on the pack. Max is no stranger to D&D work and put his amazing talent for detail and action to work on the artwork he created that we used here.
Along with all this, we can’t forget the most important piece for any D&D fan: the d20. Our d20 is a custom Icewind Dale oversized die, which pairs perfectly with the dice in the Icewind Dale Rime of the Frostmaiden Dice and Miscellany dice set. It’ll be a real… critical hit… at your table. (Sorry, we’re contractually obligated.)
Bad jokes aside, there’s a lot in this pack for a fan to sink their teeth into, from the awesome figures to the amazing accessories, and even a few bonuses we haven’t talked about here. We hope that you will love everything just as much as we loved making it.
