Skyrim Soundtrack is ‘Classic’

Back in February, we let you know how you could help vote music from our games into Classic FM’s Hall of Fame. Sounds like you guys took action, as music for The Elder Scrolls Franchise skyrocketed to #5 on this year’s list — one spot ahead of some guy named Beethoven!

“Jeremy Soule made his Hall of Fame debut in 2012 with his music from the Skyrim games, and this time he’s gone top ten. The centrepiece of his work on Skyrim is undoubtedly the monumental ‘Dragonborn’, which not features a 30-strong choir, but also features said choir singing in a specially conceived dragon language particular to the games themselves.”

Spring Savings for Skyrim DLC

Deal ends April 1st (I’m not kidding). And as new deals arrive, we’ll keep you posted.

Dragonborn statue available for pre-order

Today we’re excited to announce new (and very limited) Dragonborn statues available for purchase at GamingHeads.com. Here are the details…

Inspired by official artwork, Dragonborn stands powerfully upon his rock base, surrounded by the tail of a mighty dragon. At 1/6 scale, he measures approximately 16 inches tall, including the base – creating an extremely awe-inspiring presence for your collection.

Cast in high quality poly-stone, the statue is hand finished and hand painted. The Dragonborn comes dressed in incredibly detailed and authentic hand-tailored fabrics for unparalleled realism. Working with the official in-game assets has allowed Gaming Heads to accurately recreate the distinct armor style depicted in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.

The Dragonborn statue is available in two versions – a Standard Edition and the GamingHeads.com Exclusive Edition. The Standard Edition ($299.99, limited to 1,000 pieces worldwide) is perfect for any two-handed combat expert. Mages that want to show off their destruction skills will want to check out the Exclusive Edition ($329.99, limited to 500 pieces worldwide), as it adds an alternate arm that holds a fireball spell that illuminates and pulses like real fire. The collector can exchange the fireball for the short sword depending on preference.

Both editions include deluxe, full-color packaging, a hand numbered base (low numbers will be provided on a first come first served basis), and a certificate of authenticity which allows you to purchase the same model number in future releases in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim collection.

For more details and images, visit GamingHeads.com. The statues are expected to deliver in Q4 of this year (just in time for the holidays), but because of limited quantities, you’ll want to pre-order as soon as possible. Note: Prices are in US dollars, but the product is shipping worldwide.
