QMx Debuts Codex Figure for The Guild
LOS ANGELES – July 10, 2012 – Quantum Mechanix Inc. (QMx) announced today that it has completed development of the first-ever 1:6 scale realistic figure of Codex as portrayed by Internet superstar Felicia Day. This statue, inspired by the American comedy Web series The Guild, created and written by Day, will be available for viewing on QMx’s Web site and also at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con.
“I love the figure, they captured Codex in-game perfectly!!” said Felicia Day, who worked with QMx to ensure the figure was not only photorealistic, but also screen-accurate, costuming-wise. Part of QMx’s Figure line, The Guild Codex figure is more than 11 inches tall, cast in professional-grade resin and painted by hand.
“We’re very honored that Felicia Day agreed to let QMx make her character Codex the subject of our first 1:6 scale, realistic statue,” said QMx CEO Andy Gore. “The results speak for themselves. I think you can expect to see us do more in 1:6 scale realistic figures.”
Each The Guild figure will be released as part of a limited edition. To be the first to find out when these unique figures are available for purchase, and to keep an eye out for Web specials and other exclusives, sign up for:
