Unboxing The Lord Mesa Green Arrow Statue From Icon Heroes

I got a new friend for my desk. It’s the Green Arrow Animated Statue from Icon Heroes. This piece was a San Diego Comic-Con exclusive and limited to 300, but not all of them sold so there are some still available through their website. The statue is based on the design by local artist Lord Mesa who has become somewhat tied to the Arrowverse and other series through social media. His animated style has become a favorite of many of the actors involved in the series and in a bunch of other television series. He has been invited to con, seen with the actors and even one of his designs was on Oliver Queen’s birthday cake last season. Here is the design that inspired the statue.

Lord Mesa

The statue is made from polystone, stands 6.25″ high and weighs approximately 1 lb. It retails for $50 and they ship it out very fast. I was surprised at how quickly mine arrived. Each statue is hand painted, individually numbered and comes with a certificate of authenticity. The detail work on the statue is really nice. No flaws in the paint job and it has good balance. The base is heavy enough to counter balance the over-sized head without seeming to be too big. It doesn’t feel like the piece is going to top over at all. The piece is about the size of a Pop Vinyl figure but with far more detail. I am hoping the company is going to continue the line and we see a Flash, Atom, Supergirl, and more in the near future… just not too fast, I only have so much money.

My only knock on the piece is that there is nothing on the box nor on the statue that identifies it as being based on the work of Lord Mesa or any of the other creators involved. Something I hope the company will remedy in the future.

Here is what the statue looks like once I got it out of the box.
