Even the most hardened vampire hunter would betray trembling hands or a slack mouth at the sight of The Master. Soon the main antagonist from FX's The Strain will step out of the shadows and into the limelight in a special new statue.

Created by Insight Collectibles and now up for pre-order on Sideshow Collectibles, The Master statue's look was overseen by Guillermo del Toro, who also helped bring the monster to life on both the printed page and the small screen.

The figure comes with two interchangeable heads—one of which features the snake-like stinger ready to clamp on a new victim's neck. Standing 16 inches tall and priced at $325.00, The Master statue is expected to ship in April–May of 2016. To learn more, visit:

From Sideshow Collectibles: "Sideshow Collectibles and Insight Collectibles are proud to present The Master collectible statue, a perfect 1:5 scale replica of the ancient vampire overlord from FX’s The Strain in his formidable Jusef Sardu incarnation.

Overseen by creator Guillermo del Toro, this highly detailed Jusef Sardu figure captures every chilling detail, from his distinctive multilayered cloak to his gnarled hands and grotesque facial features. The artists at Insight Collectibles have utilized references from Guillermo’s personal files as well as the 3D sculpture used to bring The Master to life on television. The figure includes two interchangeable heads, one showing The Master in attack mode with his stinger fully extended and the other showing him in a regular pose."
