The Witcher - CIRI!

The Witcher III: Wild Hunt (Video Game) - Ciri - McFarlane Toys 2021

I don't play video games personally, but I spent quite a few hours each year watching friends and family play (often while I'm blogging). Some are exciting, but honestly most seem pretty boring. In the past few years one of the biggest standouts for me was The Witcher III: Wild Hunt. Maybe it was because I had seen a bit of the show, or maybe it was just the general gameplay and setting, but I enjoyed watching the game quite a bit. But despite all that, I have zero memory of the character Ciri. But the moment I saw this "female Geralt" I was smitten. A far cry from the scantily clad heroines I typically associate with video games, Ciri seems like a direct parallel to the title hero. I mean, yes, she appears to be wearing a corset and her shirt is always coming undone, but so is Geralt. Ciri is Geralt's adoptive daughter. She is a Child of the Elder Blood and is heir to a magical elven bloodline that lets her manipulate time and space. A big part of the game is tracking Ciri wherever (and whenever) she might be.

Ciri features 22 points of articulation.

Ciri comes with a figure stand, a longsword, a scabbard that mounts on her back via a peg, 
and a translucent blue magic effect for the sword.

The magic energy effect is pretty great. The only downfall is that it's pretty heavy. If you're displaying her with it, you'll definitely need the figure stand (and the arms will likely still sag over time).

There is a blue and green "Elder Blood Eyes" Ciri variant due out in a a few months.

Time for Comparison Pic!
