Asmodee Entertainment has announced the expansion of its partnership with Dark Horse Comics to create licensed collectibles for three of Asmodee’s leading tabletop gaming properties. Using the artwork from the games, Dark Horse will produce limited-edition premium statues, collectible figures and fine art prints. 

The first items are available to preorder now from Darkhorsedirect.com while supplies last. These include a map of Rokugan and a statue of Togashi Yokuni from Legend of the Five Rings, which was revealed for the first time at Gen Con this week, as well as an art print from Fantasy Flight Games’ Arkham Horror. Twilight Imperium collectibles will be announced soon. 

“We are delighted to be working with Dark Horse again on this new range of products, and now is the perfect time to bring these to the market,” says Ness Jack, licensing manager, Asmodee Entertainment. “The statue of Togashi Yokuni is truly stunning, and with the recent announcements at Gen Con regarding new game products for Legend of the Five Rings this is a must-have statement piece for fans old and new. We have always had a good relationship with the team at Dark Horse Comics, and with us both now being part of the Embracer Group we can explore more synergies like this to support Embracer’s transmedia ambitions. Dark Horse are market leaders in the comics and collectibles field, we can’t say too much but be sure to keep an eye out for further announcements in the coming months.”
