“I am torn between the Underworld’s stalwart purpose and a desire to destroy. May the morrow come when I am freed from this sadistic paradox. Until then, I am the risen Reaper General Mortighull, a soldier of cruel purpose.”
Sideshow is proud to present Mortighull: The Risen Reaper General Premium Format™Figure, a terrifying new addition to our original Court of the Dead collection…
The Reaper General Mortighull is far from a mirror image of his mentor, the resolute Demithyle. Mortighull is torn between his obligation to end the great celestial war… and tempted by darker urges. An Underworld champion conceived for a noble scheme, yet hammered by its cruel purpose, he revels in the thrill of combat but struggles with his compassion for the mortal souls that are unwillingly drawn into the Celestial war. Mortighull walks the knife’s edge of a warrior who must bring about peace through destruction.
Standing over 26.5″ tall, the Risen Reaper General is an imposing and impressive figure. His ornate armor is delicately painted to look beautifully aged and weathered, with the green patina of an ancient relic.
“From the bottom of the base to the tip of his sword: The level of detail is insane,” said project manager Jesse Lincoln. “This figure has been in development for a long time, so I have been working on him for years… and I am still noticing new elements in his armor.”
Master sculptor Martin Canale brought Mortigull to (after)life. “The key challenge to Mortighull’s design was to differentiate his armor from that of the Demithyle’s, with its more classical ornamentation,” Martin said. “I had the opportunity to really dig into all the concept work from the amazing designer Amilcar Fong, which was of course influenced by the great brain of Tom Gilliland. It was a real dream team.
