Before we all learned to love Bill Nighy (don’t call him “The Science Gighy”) in movies like Shaun of the Dead and the Pirates of the Caribbean sequels, he was Viktor from Underworld. A brutal Vampire Elder whose army spawned the Death Dealers, Viktor is a thoroughly evil and earnest character who generally lacks the kind of humor and self-awareness Nighy is so good at bringing to the screen–but thanks to that role, we now have this high-end figure of Nighy in full-on sexy old man mode.
Seriously, check out the gallery below, and notice how lovingly the folks at Star Ace have sculpted every detail on his bare chest, from tensed neck to navel. And while the “tribal” coat design and chains that may or may not be attached to a wallet may have once seemed cheesy, they’re now a glorious 2003 time capsule of style. They made an Underworld prequel in 2006 just so Viktor could still be alive in it, but clearly he lives forever in the hearts of certain toy sculptors, and now he can be immortal in your collection as well. To quote the ad copy: “Their developing team has conducted research and have made the a new body with muscular chest in order to show the uniqueness of Viktor’s body.”
Unique bodies don’t come cheap, and you’ll have to order him from the UK for now. But for those of us who think sexiness is not necessarily about youth every time, it’s a sweet Viktor-y at any price.
