Vex and Vax
This polyresin bust was sculpted by Tommy Hodges and painted by J.W. Productions.
Standing at approximately 7.5 inches tall, this is the first bust of the Critical Role characters from Dark Horse Direct.
Time to Roll
We’re going to pretend that role is a natural 20. For the good of the party.
Somebody at this bar messed with the wrong siblings.

Honestly, they have done nothing wrong ever.
Are we sure of how the anatomy works here? No. But it does look very cool, and that’s what matters.
Vex and Vax Unbothered
“The partnership between Dark Horse and Critical Role has been going strong for more than five years now, and we are so proud of what our teams have accomplished together so far, with exciting projects ongoing now, and more yet to come,” said Cara O’Neil, Vice President of Marketing for Dark Horse Comics.
Who’s That on the Barrel...?
It’s Trinket! Vex’s trusty bear companion.
The painted details here are really well done—not to mention the little side swoosh!
Not the Ale!
Honestly, that resin looks great.
