The Guild 1:6 Scale Codex Figure

For years now, Felicia Day fans have had to worship crude print outs of their favorite geek queen. For something more substantial, die hards were resigned to staking out locations she had been signing at conventions to collect any bits of hair for their elaborate bubble gum statues. Now..Quantum Mechanix (aka the dorkiest of dream makers) presents an alternative that doesn't involve a restraining order...

QMx is proud to present our first one-sixth scale realistic figure: the flirty, confident Codex, portrayed by Felicia Day in the popular Web comedy series, The Guild.

The QMx Real™ Codex 1:6 Scale Figure stands more than 11 inches tall and is composed of more than 3 pounds of hand-cast polystone, allowing for a level of detail and realism unachievable in smaller-scale figures. Our figure depicts Codex, the in-game persona of shy geek girl Cyd Sherman, who leads an online gaming guild known as the Knights of Good.

Our Codex figure is modeled on the character from the mega-hit music video, "Do You Wanna Date My Avatar?" that's amassed more than 20 million views on YouTube. Using hi-res photographs of Ms. Day in her Codex costume taken during the video shoot, every detail has been reproduced, from the stones and gold trim on her red corset to the green orb atop her staff. We even included a chest of gold treasure that can be opened or closed.

Using detailed turnarounds of Ms. Day's head that were shot specifically for the creation of this statue, we first digitally sculpted a full facial model in 1:1 scale, then brought it down to 1:6 scale where it was 3-D printed and mastered, ensuring maximum accuracy and realism.

This magnificent leader of The Guild in her cream, red and gold minidress with staff and treasure chest is offered in a 500-piece limited edition. Each figure is individually numbered and comes with a certificate of authenticity. A beguiling fan favorite for $179.95.

QXm's The Guild Codex 1:6 scale figure is not up for pre-order until the third quarter of this year, so head back HERE when you have a moment and sign up for an email alert so you know when to pounce!
