I don’t think I’ve ever wanted something so much upon new release like this! The Official Resident Evil Licker Diorama which is going to be released in the “1st Quarter 2011“.
Just look how detailed this piece is(more pics below)! Obviously the thumb picture for this post has to be the first appearance of “Licker” which was in Resident Evil 2.
I remember back when I was part of an on-line Biohazard community(doesn’t exist anymore 🙁 ), collectors from Japan would share sites domestically that people have made of the “Licker”. For some reason everyone was fascinated with this monster. The sites would show all sort of fan-based stuff from pictures, to art work, to even people creating stories for the Licker. It was really a cult following. I believe it has a lot to do with the cut-scene of his first appearance which is shown below:
I remember being very young and playing that part for the first time…..turning the corner….seeing the blood drop, and then watching the Licker come towards you with that eerie moan he makes.
Anyways, Licker also made its appearance is other Resident Evil games(recently in Resident Evil 5). But he was also a b*$#% to kill!! This Diorama is on Pre-order still and can be found at the below link which eBay seller “secretcompass” is the only one who has it on eBay:
The Licker Diorama is also limited to 750 pieces so keep track of the hype.
