Iron Studios have shared the details of their next Art Scale 1/10 release. The "Ron Weasley at the Wizard Statue" release is taken from Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone and is based on the scene where Ron and Harry play Wizard Chess. The statue is a 4th Quarter release for 2021.
Read the full press release below.
Mounted on a huge black steed in battle armor, represented by a statue that is part of a realistic chess game, the little boy with red hair, Ronald Bílius Weasley, better known as Ron or Rony, shrewdly looks at the scenery in front of him, analyzing all the possibilities to win the deadly Wizard’s Chess.
An enchanted version of the classic board game, in Wizard's Chess, the pieces move by themselves when they receive a command from the player, and in a barbaric way, they destroy the opponent's defeated piece. Ron, who is best friends with Harry Potter and Hermione Granger, has great knowledge of chess, and this skill was of great importance in "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone", in the scene that is now replicated in the "Ron Weasley at the Wizard Statue" Chess Deluxe Art Scale 1/10 - Harry Potter", adding another historical moment of the saga in the line of statues of Harry Potter, from Iron Studios.
The three friends who recently arrived to study at Hogwarts, begin the search for an artifact with magical properties, the Philosopher's Stone, which is also desired by the Dark Wizard Lord Voldemort, in his search for the Elixir of Life. With the magic stone hidden in Hogwarts, the young wizards face several challenges, finding in the penultimate layer of security, a gigantic Board of Wizard’s Chess. To overcome this obstacle, they take the position of black pieces guided by Ron, where Harry plays as one of the black bishops, Hermione as the Queen's Tower and Ron as a knight, assembling the horse piece to have a better view of the game. After several moves, with the pieces self-destructing, Ron sacrifices himself so that Harry can checkmate and, fortunately, the little red-haired wizard survives the destruction of his horse.

About Me : As a child of the 70's and 80's I grew up in a golden age for action figures and in my youth bought and sold myself through collections of Star Wars, G.I. Joe (Action Force) and M.A.S.K. while also dabbling in He-Man, Transformers and Ghostbusters. Roll forward and I am now reliving that Youth with the action figures of today and am a collector and fan of the larger 6-8 inch figures from my favourite movie and TV licences - including the ones mentioned above, but also the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Doctor Who and the Aliens. I launched The Mephitsu Archives in 2015 with a view of creating a UK focused site or these figures where fans can pick up the latest action figure news, read reviews and get information on where to buy their figures and what is currently on store shelves. I hope I am delivering that to you guys...
