King Features Syndicate is expanding its licensing program for Studio MDHR’s hit video game Cuphead with high-end character statues from Legion Studios.

The premium line of resin collectables will feature beautiful, hand-painted renditions of the game’s characters Cuphead, Mugman, King Dice, The Devil and Ms. Chalice. Available this autumn, the limited-edition statues will be sold across the United States and Canada.

“Cuphead has exploded into a true cultural phenomenon,” says Jarred Goro, vice president, North American licensing for King Features. “We are thrilled to work with Legion to create a line of cool collectibles that will allow fans to bring their favorite characters into their homes.”

The Legion partnership comes on the heels of the recent announcement that a Cuphead animated comedy series is in the works at Netlfix. The Cuphead Show! will expand on the characters and world of Inkwell Isles, with an animation style inspired by the classic Fleischer cartoons from the 1930s, just like the video game.

“We are extremely excited to bring our premium line of Cuphead statues to this wonderful and dedicated fanbase,” adds David Casi, co-owner and creative director of Legion Studios. “These statues will maintain the outstanding quality of the original artwork, bringing these colorful, fan-favorite characters to life in three dimensions.”

The Cuphead video game has sold over four million units worldwide and won over 20 major awards, including Special Achievement in Animation at the 45th Annual Annie Awards, Xbox One’s Game of the Year, and a BAFTA Games award for Music.
