Because no X-Men lineup would be complete without Wolverine, Kotobukiya has unveiled the final statue in its ARTFX+ series inspired by the mutants of Marvel Now!
Sculpted by Junnosuke Abe from concept art by Adi Granov, this diminutive 1/10th-scale Wolverine statue stands just 7.5 inches tall (compared, say, to Cyclops, at 8 inches). Sporting his black-and-yellow costume, Logan joins the previously released Cyclops, Emma Frost, Magneto, Magik, Beast and Rogue.
In plenty of time for the Suicide Squad movie, Kotobukiya has officially unveiled the next release in its line of Bishoujo statues based on the heroes and villains of DC Comics: Harley Quinn.
Inspired by her New 52 depiction, as interpreted by Shunya Yamashita, the 1/7th-scale statue stands nearly 9 inches, and features an oversize hammer, twin holstered pistols, a belt with spare ammunition clips, and a fluttering cape.
After a bit of teasing, Kotobukiya has officially unveiled its Spider-Gwen Bishoujo Statue.
Standing about 8.8 inches tall, the 1/7th-scale PVC statue features interchangeable masked and unmasked portraits. Although there’s not much information available beyond that, we do know that Spider-Gwen will be released in August.
With the premiere of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice now just a little more than two months away, there will be little rest for collectors — or their wallets. Joining the rapidly growing list of movie merchandise this morning are these Armored Batman and Superman ARTFX+ statues from Kotobukiya.
Sold separately, either of these 1/10th-scale statues would look nice on any shelf, but displayed together, they create a diorama of the film’s title stars brawling.
Kotobukiya has recruited the Beast to join its line of ARTFX+ statues inspired by the X-Men of Marvel Now!
Based on a design by artist Adi Granov, the 1/10th-scale Hank McCoy is so highly detailed, you can practically count the strands of blue fur on his crouching blue body (if that’s the kind of thing you want to do; no judgments).
Further widening the Avengers: Age of Ultron collectibles gap — seriously, there must be eight Iron Man figures for every one of the other characters — Kotobukiya has revealed images and details for its Iron Man Mark 45 ARTFX statue.
If you’re a fan of all things Tony Stark, and ARTFX statues, this will likely find a place in your collection. Standing 12 inches tall, the 1/6th-scale figure features the expected movie details, along with LED lights in the arc reactor, eyes and palms, and an Avengers display stand.
First we get the long-awaited Black Panther by Christopher Priest: The Complete Collection, and now we receive our first official look at the Black Panther Fine Art Statue from Kotobukiya. You’d almost think there’s a film in development or something.
Showcased in July at Comic-Con International, Black Panther is depicted crouching on the head of an ancient panther statue overgrown with foliage. The 1/6th-scale statue is about 12 inches tall.
Kotobukiya is rapidly assembling an entire Batman Family, today adding Red Robin to its series of DC Comics ARTFX+ statues.
Standing more than 7 inches tall, Tim Drake is depicted in his New 52 costume, complete with utility belt, chest harness, segmented cape and jetpack (note even the Teen Titans logo on the shoulder pad).
Kotobukiya continues to assemble its line of ARTFX+ statues inspired by the X-Men of Marvel Now!, adding the Soulsword-wielding Magik to the mix.
Sculpted by Junosuke Abe from a design by artist Adi Granov, the 1/10th-scale statue stands more than 7.5 inches tall on its magnetic display base. Shipping in February, Magik will join Uncanny X-Men teammates Cyclops, Emma Frost and Magneto in the ARTFX+ series.
Kotobukiya marches ahead with its line of ARTFX+ statues inspired by the X-Men of Marvel Now!, with Magneto soon poised to take his place alongside the previously revealed Cyclops and Emma Frost.
Standing nearly 8 inches tall, the 1/10th-scale Master of Magnetism is based on a design by artist Adi Granov. Kotobukiya again promises the rest of the Uncanny X-Men team are “coming soon.”
Although some companies have had to abandon plans for licensed X-Men collectibles, Kotobukiya pushes on with the unveiling of its Emma Frost ARTFX+ statue, the second in a series inspired by the mutants of Marvel Now! (Cyclops was announced last year at New York Comic Con, and will be released later this summer.)
Based on concept art by Adi Granov, the black-clad White Queen stands a little more than 7.5 inches tall on a magnetic display stand. Kotobukiya promises the rest of the Uncanny X-Men team are “coming soon,” which should provide more fodder for message board discussions.
Let’s face it, Alfred Pennyworth is the glue that holds together the Batman Family — heck, maybe even Gotham itself. Without his advice (and gentle prodding), medical skills, sewing and cooking abilities, tactical support and general resourcefulness, the whole operation could easily go off the rails.
Now Bruce Wayne’s tireless butler is at last taking his place alongside the Dark Knight, Robin and Nightwing as an ARTFX+ statue.
Following a brief preview last week, Kotobukiya has unveiled Black Canary, the latest in its line of DC Comics Bishoujo statues.
Sculpted by M.I.C. from a design by Shunya Yamashita, the 9.5-inch statue depicts the character in a her classic costume, standing “triumphant on the field of battle, reaching for the stars” (although she looks more like she’s getting ready to yawn).
Kotobukiya has unveiled Batman and Robin as the next statues in its DC Universe Super Powers ARTFX+ line, inspired by the popular 1980s action figures. They will join Superman, Green Lantern and The Flash.
Standing a little less than 8 inches tall, the 1/10th-scale statues are non-articulated, but otherwise recreates the look of those original figures, right down to the fabric cape and the articulation cuts.
Black Canary is of course part of the company’s popular line of DC Comics heroines based on illustrations by Shunya Yamashita. Other releases include Batgirl, Starfire, Batwoman and the upcoming Zatanna.
