It also measures a nice 20 inches tall and weighs just under 5kg.
Backstory (via Sideshow):
In the beginning, there were three Prime Evils … Baal, Mephisto, and Diablo, also named the Lord of Terror. Cast down into the mortal realm for their manipulative ways, all three were eventually imprisoned by human sorcerers into soulstones, then buried deep within the heart of Sanctuary, where they lay undisturbed for centuries.
But even a soulstone cannot long contain a Lord of Hell. Diablo was soon freed, and possessing the body of a mortal king, he began a campaign of destruction across the kingdoms of the mortal realm.
Twice Diablo was defeated through the slaying of his mortal host, and his essence returned to a soulstone where it would wait. Until, 20 years after the slaying of his second host, Diablo and the other six Lords of Hell find themselves imprisoned within the Black Soulstone. Diablo then absorbs the essences of the other six evils, becoming the Prime Evil. Freed from his latest prison, he takes possession of a new host and sets out to destroy the power of the Angels.
Transformed by the combined powers of all seven Lords of Hell into a form worthy of a Lord of Terror, Diablo ascends to the High Heavens. There he defeats Imperius, the Lord of Valor, with terrifying ease before launching a devastating assault on the Silver Spire in an attempt to destroy the High Heavens forever.
