The Guardians are Here!

A Kotobukiya Japanese import! While the Marvel Now Avengers series of ARTFX+ statues continues this year, Kotobukiya is taking a break from that line to capture this summer’s biggest movie star, GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY Rocket Raccoon! Rocket, a highly intelligent alien creature that resembles an anthropomorphic Earth raccoon, first debuted in Marvel Previews #7 way back in 1976 and has been a mainstay in the company’s “cosmic” books for years. On August 1st he will hit the big screen (voiced by Bradley Cooper) alongside Star-Lord, Groot, and the rest of his pals in the blockbuster Guardians of the Galaxy film!

Rocket Raccoon is all business as he holds up an enormous futuristic cannon, carried into battle on the shoulder of his friend and ally Groot! The small but tough as nails creature stands on his hind legs, resting one clawed hand on Groot’s head while prepared to level his intimidating heavy weapon at any enemies who may still be standing. Rocket wears a slick orange and black spacesuit that contrasts nicely with his intricately sculpted brown fur, and the tree branch texture of his friend adds yet another element to this fantastic presentation. With his teeth bared in animalistic fury, the little Guardian of the Galaxy looks like he’s ready to leap off Groot and directly into the action!

Sculpted by Junnosuke Abe (RESTORE), Rocket Raccoon brandishes his sci-fi weapon as he stands on Groot’s shoulder. A snarling raccoon in a spacesuit holding a big gun and standing on the shoulders of a tree man, this ARTFX+ Statue is guaranteed to be a centerpiece in your collection!

Available September 2014.

I’m the Juggernaut!

Kotobukiya’s amazing X-Men Danger Room Sessions Fine Art Statue series is back! We’ve seen a variety of mutant heroes and even Magneto battling the holographic dangers in the X-Men training facility, and the latest character to come crashing in is the Juggernaut! Cain Marko was a bully as a child and had destiny forced upon him when he met his step-brother Charles Xavier. The two would later serve together in the US Army in Korea where Marko found an ancient temple devoted to the demon Cyttorak. Finding a giant ruby and reading a magical inscription, the man was mystically transformed into the powerful, unstoppable Juggernaut! Cain has spent most of his career as a villain, but (although not a mutant) has also served heroically alongside the X-Men; it was during those times that he had access to the Danger Room. Ever since the early days of Marvel Comics’ mutant adventures, “X” teams have trained together in the ultra high tech facility known as the Danger Room, equipped with state of the art adaptive combat and athletics routines that challenge each participant in unique ways. The training facility has been featured prominently in X-Men comics over the years, as well as in various cartoons and the third X-Men film.

An immense mass of muscle and fury rivalling even the Hulk, the Juggernaut crashes across the simulated Danger Room battlefield destroying everything in his way. Marko wears his iconic classic costume, a unique outfit consisting of a brown sleeveless jumpsuit with a purple belt and boots. Matching brown bands wrap his arms and hands, while on his head he wears the immediately recognizable Juggernaut helmet! The beefy villain has one huge foot planted in front of the other, bending forward at the waist with a fist raised in defiance of his opposition. Every muscle and sinew covering the Juggernaut’s beyond ripped body is sculpted to perfection, along with his costume stretched taught over it. Meanwhile, the look on Marko’s face through his helmet perfectly captures the character’s rage and ferocity!

Sculpted by Danger Room veteran Erick Sosa, Juggernaut stands in 1/6th scale along with the other “Sessions” members like Psylocke, Wolverine, Colossus, and Cyclops. Also like them, Cain Marko stands on a unique Danger Room holographic environment; this one replicates the X-Mansion itself complete with the smashed seal of Charles Xavier’s Institute ground beneath his feet. Whether you’re collecting the Danger Room Sessions statues or are a fan of Juggernaut, this Fine Art Statue is the definitive representation of the character!

Behold the Wonder

A Kotobukiya Japanese import! Coming up next in the DC Comics Bishoujo Collection (combining DC’s superheroines and villains with traditional Japanese stylings) is a brand new version of the Amazonian princess and member of DC’s “Trinity,” Armored Wonder Woman! Since her comic book debut in 1941, Princess Diana has been an icon of female power, intelligence, and grace. Arriving in “man’s world” from the Amazonian island home of Themyscira, Diana donned a red, white and blue costume to protect the world as Wonder Woman! The timeless character returns to the Japanese Bishoujo (pretty girl) style in a new armored look inspired by Japan’s renowned illustrator Shunya Yamashita.

Wonder Woman explodes into action like never before in this dynamic statue that truly combines the character’s beauty with her tough spirit. The Amazonian is frozen in action, leaning back on one foot while simultaneously deflecting attacks with her magical bracelets! Ever the confident warrior, Diana doesn’t flinch under the unseen barrage but keeps her wits about her with a stoic expression on her Bishoujo-style face. Wonder Woman is clad in a reinforced version of her iconic outfit complete with metallic red and gold top decorated with an eagle, large gold belt, star-spangled blue and white skirt, knee-high red, white, and gold boots, and a matching red cape with gold edges. Of course, no depiction of the warrior woman would be complete without her silver bracelets, the magical lasso at her waist, and the tiara on her forehead! You can even display Wonder Woman in two ways: defending herself as usual with her fists clenched or holding a dagger so she can go on the offensive.

Constructed of high-quality pvc plastic and standing nearly 9 ½ inches tall (in the ultimate 1/7 scale) on her exclusive display base, Wonder Woman was sculpted by Cigua. Display the warrior princess on her own or together with other DC Bishoujo statues like Supergirl, Batgirl, or the Huntress!

Available May 2014.

Mean and Green

Marvel Comics is the next great property to get Kotobukiya’s ARTFX+ statue treatment, and so of course the first series is none other than the Avengers, specifically the characters as they appear in Marvel Now. In 2012 the comic book company relaunched several titles, shifting some characters into different books and updating some for a modern audience. More than anything, it provided a perfect jumping on point for new readers. Now the characters are brought to life as never before based on concept artwork by superstar artist Adi Granov. For the very first Avengers ARTFX+ release… well, he’s big, he’s green, and he’s always angry… it’s the Hulk!

Bruce Banner was a scientist studying the effects of gamma radiation when he was caught in an explosion. Rather than destroy him the energies transformed him into the massive green-skinned Hulk! The Avenger stands in a classic comic book pose, angled to the side and leaning forward with his arms outstretched. The Hulk has his leading hand open as though to taunt his enemies, though his right hand behind him is balled into a fist to deliver a mighty blow! The Hulk is fantastically detailed with intricate musculature down to his sinews and veins, and the harsh grimace on his face shows off the rage he can’t keep bottled up in battle. Banner’s alter ego wears his traditional tattered purple pants (no Hulk would be complete without them), and his skin is expertly painted with varying shades of green.

The massive Hulk stands just barely under 10 inches tall (in the ARTFX+ 1/10th scale) on his included magnetic display base. Hulk will be joined by his fellow Avengers with upcoming releases Hawkeye, Black Widow, Captain America, Iron Man, and Thor, so get him to begin your collection!

Available March 2014.

Beautiful but Deadly

X-Force cannot be stopped! The incredible Fine Art Statue line has captured members X-23, Warpath, Deadpool, Archangel, and Wolverine, and now it expands to include the telepathic mutant ninja and current leader of Uncanny X-Force, Psylocke! Once a British woman with minor mutant powers, Elizabeth “Betsy” Braddock’s mind was transferred into the body of a ninja giving her additional martial arts prowess. A long-time member of the X-Men, Psylocke more recently joined up with the brutal mutant hit squad X-Force, comprised of mutants willing to do anything to get the job done and protect the world. Psylocke fit right in, using her awesome powers and debuting a cool monochrome costume.

The deadly telepathic mutant stands on a ruined battlefield, focused intently on her enemies and ready to attack! Psylocke balances with her feet spread wide, gripping the broken pillar beneath her with her Japanese tabi-style boots. She leans forward with one katana held in a low guard position before her, her other hand poised behind her to strike. You can see the ninja training at work in Psylocke’s perfectly held pose, with just the floating of her long purple hair and sash to show that the world is affecting her. The powerful mutant wears her distinctive X-Force outfit consisting of a sleek black skin-tight costume, thigh high boots, long fingerless gloves, and unique straps around her upper arms and legs plus a white sash belt decorated with the red and black X-Force symbol. As beautiful as she is deadly, Betsy’s likeness is spot on and conveys her otherworldy grace. As an added bonus, interchangeable parts let you display Psylocke with a second katana in her left hand or the swirling purple energy of her psychic knife!

Sculpted by Erick Sosa, Psylocke stands over 10 inches tall on her georama base in 1/6th scale with the other X-Force Fine Art Statues. Get her while you can before this psychic ninja disappears!

Available April 2014.

Last Daughter of Krypton


Kotobukiya’s line of DC Comics “New 52” ARTFX+ Statues continues after the mighty Shazam and Black Adam with one of the most popular female characters in all of comics, Supergirl! Another Kryptonian crash landed on Earth, Kara Zor-El wakes up in Siberia not realizing that she’s on a different planet or that her homeworld has been destroyed. Initially distrustful of humanity and of her cousin Kal-El, Supergirl nevertheless learned to embrace her new home and its residents, becoming a hero and using her incredible Kryptonian abilities against Worldkillers, Black Banshee, and more!

A youthful and innocent heroine, Supergirl is constantly learning about the new world around her as well as her own new powers under the Earth’s yellow sun. In this fantastic new presentation she’s ready to take on anyone who tries to control her, standing proud and defiant in the face of any danger! Her strength is matched with her femininity as she poses with one leg slightly bent at the knee and one hand at her waist while the other is balled into a fist and held at the ready. Turned slightly, Supergirl regards you with all the focus of her attention, her perfectly sculpted face framed by her beautiful blonde hair. The Kryptonian’s distinctive New 52 costume is recreated with extreme attention to detail and includes the unique thigh high boots with exposed knees, half-body suit in gleaming metallic colors, and calf-length cape. The statue’s paint highlights all of the great details with bright, vivid colors exemplified by the “S” shield on her chest.

Supergirl stands just over 7 ½ inches tall (in the ARTFX+ 1/10th scale) atop her included display base with magnets in her feet for added stability. The powerful young hero looks great displayed all by herself, and she’s a perfect addition to the previous New 52 Justice League series!

This one packs a punch!

A Kotobukiya Japanese import! The incredible Bishoujo statues from Kotobukiya have brought you everything from superheroines to Tekken fighters, and now the long-awaited line of Street Fighter members is finally here with the one, the only, Chun Li! One of the bestselling video game franchises of all time, Street Fighter first debuted in 1987 with its unique blend of one on one combat and international characters (and fighting styles). The beautiful and fierce Chun Li first appeared in 1991’s Street Fighter II and has since gone on to become one of the most popular and recognizable characters from the series. A Chinese fighter and an undercover Interpol agent, she exemplifies justice and honorable martial arts. Chun Li is presented in a brand new Bishoujo Statue based on a new illustration by master Japanese illustrator Shunya Yamashita.

Chun Li is captured mid-kick, finishing off an unseen opponent with one of her signature moves from the Street Fighter video games. She rests solely on her right foot, her body bent at a nearly 90 degree angle while her left foot extends high into the air. The fighter wears her iconic blue outfit based on the traditional Chinese qipao with yellow piping and designs along with brown tights, white combat boots, and her trademark spiked bracelets. Not only does her intricately sculpted clothing move along with her body to create the illusion of motion, but also the ribbons tied around her “ox horns” hairstyle. The sculpted and painted details on Chun Li’s outfit and lithe musculature is perfect, a perfect representation of the high quality you’ve come to expect from Kotobukiya. Even the fighter’s face, smoothly combining the intense focus of the moment with traditional Bishoujo beauty, is captivating and eye-catching. 

Chun Li stands nearly 8 inches tall (1/7 scale) on a specially designed display base. Instantly recognizable in your collection, the fighter looks great next to other Bishoujo statues including more upcoming Street Fighter members like Cammy!

Available January 2014.

The Ninja X-Men

A Kotobukiya Japanese import! The Marvel Bishoujo collection continues with a brand new version of the mysterious and beautiful telepathic mutant ninja, Psylocke X-Force Ninja Outfit Ver! Once a British woman with minor mutant powers, Elizabeth “Betsy” Braddock’s mind was transferred into the body of a ninja giving her additional martial arts prowess. A long-time member of the X-Men, Psylocke more recently joined up with the brutal mutant hit squad X-Force, comprised of mutants willing to do anything to get the job done and protect the world.

Based on a new illustration by master artist Shunya Yamashita, Psylocke has never looked better with her X-Force outfit and adorable Bishoujo styled face!

Guardian of Metropolis

A Kotobukiya Japanese import! Following the recent releases of classic DC Comics characters in the full size ARTFX Statue scale (including Batman Black Costume and The Joker), Kotobukiya returns to the Man of Steel himself for a special presentation portraying an iconic appearance: Superman For Tomorrow! In the 2004-2005 twelve issue story arc written by Brian Azzarello, Superman faced some of his most difficult times as he investigated the worldwide Vanishing, dealt with an alternate reality Earth, and faced off against mysterious villains. “For Tomorrow” is most famous for its incredible artwork by DC superstar Jim Lee, and that is the inspiration for this all new statue.

Superman stands in one of his most iconic heroic poses, standing tall with legs apart and hands balled into fists at his sides. The Man of Steel is vigilant for any threats, his head angled to the side as his enormous cape flows dramatically in the wind behind him. Superman has never looked better thanks to the highly detailed sculpt that displays his powerful physique as well as the distinctive elements of his costume, from the intricately defined muscles of his torso, arms, and legs to the creases in his boots, the subtle belt, and of course all of the movement and texture of the cape. “Big Blue” is resplendent in blue, red, and yellow, capturing the look and feel of his traditional costume. Befitting the serious tone of For Tomorrow, Superman’s angular Jim Lee artwork-inspired face captures his incredible intensity and focus while still including the required spit curl and flowing black hair.

Sculpted by Kouei Matsumoto (who also sculpted the Batman Black Costume ARTFX), Superman stands nearly 12 inches tall in the ARTFX 1/6th scale. An absolute must for any fan of DC Comics and the greatest superhero of all time, Superman For Tomorrow is the new definitive statue and will look amazing on your shelf by himself or alongside other Kotobukiya ARTFX releases.

The deadly assassin

A Kotobukiya Japanese import! Kotobukiya has created several fantastic ARTFX Statues based on DC Comics characters, but there haven’t been any from the current “New 52” relaunch… until now. Slade Wilson was a member of the United States Army chosen for advanced training due to his peak physical condition and strength of will. He was also experimented on by the very same government he fought for, and with the enhancements they gave him became a mercenary and assassin. As one of the most dangerous men in the world he goes by the name of Deathstroke! Appearing in his own comic as part of DC’s New 52, the character was re-introduced to the world with an updated costume but the same hardcore attitude and superhuman weapons mastery.

A powerful addition to the DC ARTFX lineup, Deathstroke is captured in a fierce martial arts stance. The Terminator wears his unique New 52 style armor with a sleek bodysuit, built in boots, a sturdy utility belt, textured mail-like armored torso, and heavy shoulder harness. His pose is a partial lunge while he holds his sword in a two-handed guard position, as ever aimed at his enemies so he can cut them to pieces! All of the elements of Deathstroke’s armor are expertly sculpted from his spiked boots to his fearsome skull-like helmet and everything in between, while the detailed paint applications show off his traditional blue and orange color scheme. As an added bonus, Slade’s removable faceplate is attached via magnet so you can display him in his fully armored look or unmasked to reveal his scowling countenance and eye-patch!

Sculpted by Junosuke Abe, Deathstroke stands nearly 12 inches tall (in the ARTFX 1/6th scale) on a special display base. Slade Wilson is the perfect villain/antihero to add to your collection, and he looks great displayed alongside previous DC ARTFX Statues like Batman Black Costume or future New 52 releases!

Let the general lead your collection!

A Kotobukiya Japanese import! The incredible Star Wars ARTFX+ lineup has already featured some of the most iconic heroes and villains from the Star Wars films, and now it returns to the final prequel to present the Supreme Commander of the Separatist droid army, General Grievous! A powerful alien cyborg with multiple arms and a mastery of the lightsaber, Grievous is one of the greatest threats the Jedi and the Republic have ever faced.

A vicious alien warlord made even more powerful by a cyborg body, General Grievous appears in full attack mode, advancing forward with his body hunched over and stolen Jedi lightsabers extended at his sides. Just like in Revenge of the Sith, this version of the Droid Commander has lots of tricks up his sleeves. Alternate parts let you display him with either two arms or four, and in either version he can also wear his long, flowing cape! Grievous’ cyborg body is intricately detailed in all of its skeleton-like glory, and his cruel eyes leer at you from within his skull shaped head. Like other ARTFX+ statues the commander has magnets in his feet for extra stability on his included display base.

ARTFX+ Statues are fun-to-assemble pre-painted snap-fit kits that can be easily put together in seconds without glue or modeling skill. General Grievous stands over 6 ½ inches tall (1/10th scale) and looks great displayed alongside other Star Wars statues!

The Man of Steel


A Kotobukiya Japanese import! This summer marks the big screen return of DC Comics’ Superman in Man of Steel, directed by Zack Snyder and produced by Christopher Nolan of the Batman franchise. Promising a brand new vision of the iconic superhero, the film stars Henry Cavill as the Man of Steel complete with an incredible redesigned costume that updates the traditional red, blue, and yellow. Kotobukiya is proud to present an all-new ARTFX statue to tie in with the upcoming blockbuster, Man of Steel’s Superman! While we won’t know the full extent of Snyder’s new take on Superman until the film releases this summer, it’s clear from the trailers and promotional images that it’s going to be big and action-packed. Kotobukiya’s Man of Steel statue captures the energy and power of the film’s hero in a fantastic new presentation. Superman stands in a powerful pose straight out of the movie’s trailers, half crouching with his arms curled and fists clenched. The Kryptonian is coiled and ready to spring into action, muscles taught beneath his suit… and what a suit it is! The Man of Steel film version of the iconic Superman costume combines the traditional comic book elements with futuristic materials and textures, melding it together into a sleek outfit that looks really cool. Expertly recreated for this statue, the hero’s suit is intricately sculpted to capture all of the subtle textures as well as the bold elements like the chest logo, boots, and piping effects. Equally impressive is the lifelike Henry Cavill as Superman head sculpt, powerful, serious, and otherworldly. Last but not least, this statue debuts a Kotobukiya first: a poseable cape that can be shaped and molded into nearly any position, allowing for a dynamic personalization of your display! Sculpted by RESTORE (Shinya Yamaoka), Superman stands over 10 ½ inches tall (1/6th scale) crouched over a special display base that incorporates the iconic “S” shield. This pre-painted, snap-fit ARTFX Statue is easy to assemble so you can have your Superman on display in no time. Arriving later this year just after the release of the film, this statue is the perfect way to celebrate Man of Steel and the greatest superhero of all time!

A Kotobukiya Japanese import! Kotobukiya’s line of DC Comics ARTFX+ Statues continues, capturing the look and costumes of DC Comics Super Heroes and villains. Following up on the Justice League comes one of Batman’s most popular antagonists (and sometimes partner), Catwoman!

Stealing the limelight in her skin-tight leather jumpsuit and carrying her trademark whip and claws, Catwoman stands in a relaxed pose, yet is light on her feet, ready to either fight or flee as the situation requires. Selina Kyle’s first appearance in the ARTFX+ lineup captures her classic look perfectly. The details on Catwoman are exceptional from the intricate folds and seams on her costume to the small touches like the zipper, boot buckles, whip, and claws. Kotobukiya’s unique take on Catwoman features a reflective sheen to her black cat-suit, with her fully painted features visible through her goggles.

Standing nearly 8 inches tall (in the ARTFX+ 1/10th scale), Catwoman was sculpted by master artist Goutaro Takeuchi (Atelier Bamboo), who previously sculpted the DC Comics New 52 Justice League ARTFX+ statues. Like the other DC ARTFX+ Statues, Catwoman has magnets in her feet for perfect stability on the included base, and she’ll look great displayed on your shelf by herself or alongside other DC ARTFX+ statues.

Hulk Smash!

The Hulk has been a staple superhero of the Marvel Comics universe for years, battling foes across the universe in epic storylines. Mild-mannered scientist Dr. Bruce Banner was experimenting with highly volatile gamma radiation when an explosion bathed him with that green energy, transforming him into the enormous aggressive powerhouse known as the Hulk. As the massive creature Banner has been a menace to humanity as well as one of its greatest heroes, and in that respect has served with distinction among Marvel’s premiere champions. Celebrating his look in those comics comes an incredible brand new Fine Art Statue, Hulk Classic Avengers! The massive Hulk leaps straight off the pages of Avengers comics in all of his green skinned glory! The powerfully built hero stands on cracked and broken terrain, flexing his enormous muscles as he prepares to charge once more into battle against those who would threaten the Earth. Hulk has a wide-legged stance, balancing on his tree trunk-like legs while he leans forward and flexes one arm in front of him and one behind. Bruce Banner’s alter ego is all muscle, with rippling sinews and incredibly detailed anatomy including veins, toe and finger nails, and more under his subtly accented green-hued skin. He even wears his iconic purple pants, intricately sculpted with belt loops, seams, creases, and of course the shredded remains at his knees. Hulk also sports a fierce facial sculpt that captures the character’s never-ending rage, completing the look of what’s destined to become THE Hulk statue for collectors and comic book fans alike! Sculpted by artist Erick Sosa, Hulk stands on his special terrain display base in the same 1/6 scale as his fellow Avengers! Whether he’s standing by himself in your display or alongside the Fine Art Statues of his teammates Thor, Iron Man, Captain America, and Hawkeye, the mean green machine is sure to impress.

Here comes the Mark 42!

A Kotobukiya Japanese import! This summer one of the most popular Marvel superheroes returns to the silver screen. In the first two Iron Man films as well as the Avengers Robert Downey Jr. has played the perfect Tony Stark and his heroic alter ego Iron Man, with incredible special effects bringing his armored forms to life like never before. Following on the massive global success of the superhero team up movie Marvel is bringing the fans even more armored action with Iron Man 3 this May! Joining the previously announced Mark VII in the Iron Man 3 ARTFX Statue lineup is a new armored suit from the upcoming movie, Iron Man Mark 42!

After surviving imprisonment by terrorists, billionaire industrialist Tony Stark created the Mark II armor suit. This was followed up soon after by the iconic Mark III suit used to battle Stane and his Iron Monger suit at the culmination of the first film, and the upgraded Marks IV, V, and VI armor in the sequel. He went even further with the Mark VII in Avengers, using the high-tech armor to take on the army of the Chitauri. Now we get a sneak peek at the ultimate powered armor in Stark’s Iron Man 3 Mark 42. Similar to the Mark VII, the new version is a sleek machine with overlapping plates and a unique segmented look. Iron Man blasts into action, churning up water beneath him with his thrusters. The dynamic pose catches the superhero leaning back as he fires his repulsor ray from his outstretched right hand, clenching the left for a follow up attack. The Mark 42 is resplendent in metallic red and gold with a subtle new pattern unlike any of the armors before it. This version also comes equipped with an amazing LED light-up feature in his eyes and arc reactor; three settings (Off, Continuous On, and triggered by the built-in sound detector) let you choose how and when Iron Man activates for battle!

Iron Man Mark 42 stands 15 inches tall (1/6th scale) hovering over the lifelike water effect. This pre-painted, snap-fit ARTFX Statue is easy to assemble so you can have your Iron Man on display in no time. Arriving this summer along with the release of the film, the Mark 42 is just the first Iron Man 3 ARTFX statue from Kotobukiya; there are more to follow!

Available July 2013.
