Gecco announced today that Silent Hill 3‘s Robbie the Rabbit will get a new variant this upcoming March – and he’s green! This past April, Gecco told Silent Hill Historical Society that they were working on two new statues; one of which is a Red Pyramid Thing (Pyramid Head) holding the Great Spear. Now it has been confirmed that rather than a new character or monster as many fans hoped, we will see a 4th variation of Robbie.
Here are the stats (from the press release):
SILENT HILL 3 / Robbie the Rabbit 1/6 Scale Statue, Green Ver.
-Size：1/6 scale （34 cm high）
-Sculpt：Shinya Akao (HEADLONG)
-Paint： Norifumi Dohi (FRANKEN) & Kenji Ando
-Package art: Usagi Tanaka

The head, arms and legs are covered with flocking. The fur is recreated with the right length of flocking so that it looks and feels exactly like the real costume. The painted blood on the flocking was a real challenge to achieve, but the hard work paid off, making this a truly unique collectible.
A steel pipe is included with the statue allowing the collector to display the statue as he appears in the video game as “Killer Rabbit.”
Also included is the vicious chainsaw weapon, covered with blood as it appeared in “Silent Hill 2” as a secret weapon, with the words “Together we are one” written across the blade.
The base is modeled after “Lakeside Amusement Park” made of wire mesh and steel plate.
Rust and puddles of blood are realistically painted on it.
Was Robbie the Rabbit ever green, you ask? Well, yes, but not in-game. Robbie the Rabbit does appear briefly as a green character in the animated short, Usagi:
This green variant of Robbie the Rabbit marks the 4th version of this character, leaving some fans wondering when we will see a new one!
“While I’m always excited for new Silent Hill merchandise I have to admit I’m a bit disappointed that this new statue is just a fourth Robbie color variation,” commented Whitney Chavis, who runs Silent Hill: Historical Society and holds the title for largest Silent Hill collection with the Guiness Book of World Records, “I was really hoping for another character…. like say another protagonist? Or a different creature? I still reeeeeaaaalllly want a Twin Victim from Silent Hill 4 or a Closer from Silent Hill 3.”
Although it doesn’t appear that you can pre-order the Green Robbie the Rabbit variant as of this posting, keep on eye on D4Toys to get yours when it becomes available! What do YOU think, Hill Heads? What character or monster do YOU want to see made into a statue next?
