The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Geralt of Rivia Heart of Stone Figure Review
Summary: The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt - Geralt of Rivia Heart of Stone Figure will become the "heart" of your collection!
The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt is one of the best RPG games (ever) made and developers CD Projekt Red should be commended on successfully transforming Andrzej Sapkowski,’s book series to the gaming medium in a truly spectacular fashion. While the original game (2007) was rough around the edges, the Witcher 2 (2011) improved considerably and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt (2015) blew it all away with one of the most immersive open-world RPG experiences to date.
So if you loved playing the enigmatic monster hunter, Geralt of Rivia from The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt who has saved thousands on thousands of occasions, this amazing 9.5″ figure from CD Project Red and Dark Horse perfectly captures the character from the video game in stunning detail. The 9.5″ figure is also based on the Heart of Stone DLC that was released in 2015 which saw our favourite monster hunter given the difficult choice of either redeeming or condemning the soul Olgierd von Everec, a cursed nobleman.

Based on the original fantasy novels by author Andrzej Sapkowski, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt follows the story of monster hunter Geralt of Rivia, a powerful witcher who is searching for his missing daughter, Ciri, as she flees from the grasp of the Wild Hunt… an otherworldly force determined to use her powers.
A year after The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt game originally released, Dark Horse debuted their figure of Geralt of Rivia, the monster-slaying protagonist. Back by popular demand, Dark Horse are pleased to bring the start of their stunning figure line back with a new twist!
This deluxe hand-painted plastic figure of Geralt of Rivia, standing at approximately 9.5 inches tall, features two interchangeable heads! Geralt can be displayed with the head as seen from the original figure or with an all new clean shaven look, as seen in the Heart of Stone DLC expansion.
Well packed, The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Geralt of Rivia Heart of Stone Figure comes in a blister box that is perfect for those who don’t open their figures or alternatively, the figure can be stored away for storage. However as a collector, toys and statues should be made for display and this deluxe figure is no exception to the rule.
This version of Geralt also comes with two interchangeable heads, a clean-cut face of our powerful monster hunter plus a bearded version, both with battle scars. Which head is better? This is an impossible choice because both heads look amazing, including the piercing yellow cat-like eyes courtesy of the Witcher’s magical mutation.
- 9.5 inches (24.13cm)
- Made of plastic
- From The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
- Specially designed base
Once freed from the blister pack, you soon realise that this figure is identical to the character from the game and the presentation is perfect that has Geralt about to draw his sword which features the double wolf hilt. The base that the figure stands on also proudly displays the famous “Witcher” insignia. So as you can see from the photos, the attention to detail is pure brilliance!
I also like how this figure has Geralt is wearing a mixture of chain mail and leather, including a belt buckle and buckles on his shoes. As mentioned, the attention to detail is flawless and whether it’s the illusion of single chain mail rings, the stitching on his leather armour, his Witcher necklace or the metal on his knuckles, it’s a very detailed figure.
While the figure is plastic, it is hand-painted that makes it look more statue than mass produced collectible and as a result, adds to the overall presentation, including a sense of realness. The pose is also badass to the bone!
If you’re fan of one of the best games ever created, then the The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Geralt of Rivia Heart of Stone Figure Figure is a must have for your collection that brings the world’s most dangerous and feared monster hunter to life and spectacularly at that!
