SideShow has announced that it has begun shipping the now-sold-out-and-very-rare Knight Who Says 'Ni!' figure. Also, shipment of the Bridgekeeper doll is not far off... only one more week SideShow says.

Knight Who Says 'Ni!'

The Knight of Ni stands 18-inches all, and towers appropriately over the other cowering Holy Grail figures. This figure is limited to only 1,000 pieces worldwide. This Knight is fully articulated from the waist up and has a sturdy base that supports him under his costume. He features antlers, fake fur and a Herring accessory! Sorry, shrubbery is not included.

This item is already sold out. However, a limited quantity may come back in stock at time of shipping ,says SideShow, due to canceled orders, refused shipments, etc. If you would like to be placed on a waiting list for this item, please e-mail SideShow's customer service. Alternately you can hunt for it on eBay, but be prepared to spend a pretty penny.

Portrait, in the likeness of Michael Palin as the knight, was sculpted by Oluf W. Hartvigson.

The Bridgekeeper figure should be shipping in about a week, according to SideShow Toy.

This creepy 'question-and-answer' guy is the next release in our line of 12" figures from the Monty Python comedy 'The Holy Grail.' The Bridgekeeper features the likeness of Terry Gilliam. It has over 30 points of articulation and comes with an authentic replica of the costume, a European Swallow, an African Swallow and a necklace of bones.

Disclaimer: Thou has to supply thine own voice if you want The Bridgekeeper to ask questions. The figure does not speak on its own. If you supply the wrong answers you will have to do your own throwing! Take heed! Severe flesh wounds and humiliation await you as this figure contains tiny, nasty looking little pieces! Not for for those under 5!
