Four Horsemen Studios - Figura Obscura Action Figure 1/12 Scale The Masque of the Red Death (Black Robes Edition)


Death comes for everyone. Riches and power and noble birth mean little to the cold embrace of the grave. In death all are equal, and none can escape its touch.

First published in 1842, Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Masque of the Red Death” is a Gothic fiction that relates the tale of a horrible plague and a group of wealthy nobles’ doomed attempt to escape from this dreaded disease. Of course, trying to hide from death is impossible, and the end is never in question, for as the final line of the short story states - And Darkness and Decay and the Red Death held illimitable dominion over all.

The Figura Obscura: The Masque of the Red Death figure features a gaunt, zombie-like body. Fans will recognize some of these “zombie-limbs” from the Poxxus figure in the Mythic Legions wave of the same name, as well as in our Undead Builder Pack from the Necronominus wave. This particular figure uses those previously shown limbs, but also includes body parts never seen before now - namely the lower arms and lower legs, torso, as well as a new waist piece and loin attachment. The head on the Red Death is also brand new, and one of the most striking aspects of the figure is the skull-like mask that he wears.

The Red Death does come with the dagger that Prince Prospero would’ve approached him with, as well as some extra sets of hands. The main accessory included with this figure is the large ebony clock that sits in the Prince’s abbey where this story takes place. Along with the clock, a pool of blood is also included as a base, likely from the doomed nobles who have fallen dead to the gruesome plague which they have all failed to escape. The Red Death figure may only include a few accessories, but the large diorama-like pieces it does include really add to the overall display of this figure.

This new “Black Robes” edition, inverts the colors from the first release—with black robes instead of red. All the pieces from the first release are in this new “Black Robes” edition including the large clock accessory.

Like all Figura Obscura releases, The Masque of the Red Death with come in deluxe packaging with a magnetic front cover and loads of artwork from this character’s story.
