Dark Horse Direct Gives Critical Role Their First Dynamic Bust

Dark Horse Direct reveals their first dynamic bust, featuring two of Critical Role’s most popular half-elves, the brother/sister duo of Vox Machina’s Vax’ildan and Vex’ahlia!

Tough to argue that of all the characters spawned from the Critical Role machine, the brother/sister team of Vax and Vex are easily two of the IP’s most popular creations. Voiced by Liam O’Brien and Laura Bailey respectively, they were a shoe in for the franchise’s first novel (Critical Role: Vox Machina – Kith & Kin), and routinely show up on many Top 10 lists. So, it’s no surprise that Dark Horse Direct, the collectible wing of Dark Horse Comics, chose this pair to launch their dynamic bust line.

Dark Horse Direct and Critical Role are proud to introduce the first-ever dynamic bust featuring the legendary twins of the adventuring band, Vox Machina, with Vex’ahlia and Vax’ildan.
With tankards in hand, sloshing some well-earned ale, Vex and Vax are mid-battle in this tavern brawl! Knocking over the barrel table, you’ll notice a little carving left by the precise and deadly duo. Standing at approximately 7.5” tall, this polyresin bust was sculpted by Tommy Hodges and painted by J.W. Productions and is based on the Critical Role: Vox Machina Origins comic books by Dark Horse.

“The partnership between Dark Horse and Critical Role has been going strong for more than five years now, and we are so proud of what our teams have accomplished together so far, with exciting projects ongoing now, and more yet to come,” said Cara O’Neil, Vice President of Marketing for Dark Horse Comics. “These collectible character busts will soon stand alongside our gorgeous Critical Role comics and art books—and who better to launch with than the twins of Vox Machina themselves, Vex and Vax? We hope Critters enjoy, and stay tuned for more to come.”

This collectible is limited to 1,000 units and will include a hand-numbered base and certificate of authenticity. It will be $149.99, and is expected to ship to customers between February and April 2024. The Critical Role: Vox Machina Origins – Vex’ahlia and Vax’ildan Bust is now available to pre-order exclusively from DarkHorseDirect.com with more stunning character collectibles on the way to be announced soon.
