Fezzik, the giant was employed by Vizzini. He doesn’t have a problem with subverting the law, but doesn’t like to fight dirty. He is friends with Inigo; the two like to play rhyming games with one another from time-to-time at the ire of their employer. Fezzik is very tall and big so at a very young age, his parents made him fight competitively. He is from Turkey, but met Vizzini in Greenland where he was unemployed.

Princess Buttercup is featured in her iconic Red Dress as seen in The Princess Bride. Princess Buttercup is a beautiful farm girl who lives in the country of Florin and is the true love of Westley.

“Hello, my name is Inigo Montoya; you killed my father; prepare to die.” This phrase that Inigo practices repeatedly for his ultimate encounter with Count Rugen completely sums up his motivation throughout the story. We learn in a flashback to his childhood that he had adored his father, a great sword maker, who had created as his magnum opus a glittering sword for the six-fingered count. The Count returned, was displeased with the product and refused to pay the price he had originally offered, and then in a fit of anger he killed Inigo’s father, shattering young Inigo’s life. Inigo spends the rest of his childhood and young adulthood mastering the sword, and ultimately becomes a wizard, the highest ranked swordsman in the world. Having achieved this and still not found the Count, he lapsed into depression and alcoholism, and came out of it only when Vizzini recruited him to assist in his criminal organization. He fears losing his purpose again, and therefore he remains faithfully with Vizzini.

The only thing known concerning the Dread Pirate Roberts is that he never leaves captives alive.

It is revealed during the course of the story that Roberts is not one man, but a series of individuals who periodically pass the name and reputation to a chosen successor. Everyone except the successor is then released at a convenient port, a new crew hired, and the former Roberts stays aboard as first mate. The constant reference to “Captain Roberts” establishes the new Roberts’ persona. After the crew is convinced, the former Roberts leaves the ship and retires on his earnings.
However this iteration of Dread Pirate Roberts is really Westley, who inherited the title after the previous Dread Pirate Roberts retired.  Westley had grown close to his predecessor after he was captured while searching for his fortune to return to Buttercup. In an attempt to help him achieve this goal the Previous Dread Pirate thought this position would help Westley achieve his goal.

Designed with Ultra Articulation with up to 22 moving parts for full range of posing and play.
