Kotobukiya’s hit line of Marvel Comics’ Avengers ARTFX+ Statues paved the way for the next incredible comic-based series in this great scale, the X-Men of 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, who was also responsible for the Avengers series. Starting the X-Men off right is of course the team leader and longtime mutant champion, CYCLOPS!
Scott Summers was one of the original five teenaged X-Men who trained with Professor Xavier, and ever since he’s led X-Men as they fight for the survival of mutants everywhere. Cyclops was so named for his monocular ruby quartz visor that he flipped open to unleash powerful optic blasts against his opponents. In his Marvel Now! appearance, though, Summers has a bold new design and look. Following his interaction with the Phoenix Force in AvX (Avengers vs. X-Men) Cyclops wears a new, darker costume befitting his renegade status. The X-Man stands poised to unleash an optic blast at his enemies, stepping forward threateningly with his fists raised. His Marvel Now! look consists of a nearly full body dark suit with all sorts of cool details, a belt with X-symbol buckle and pouches, and more. Replacing the classic horizontal, rectangular visor is a striking new “X” across Cyclops’ face which looks amazing in this presentation!
Sculpted by the same master artist who did the Marvel Now! Avengers series, Junosuke Abe, Cyclops stands just under 8 inches tall (in the ARTFX+ 1/10th scale) on his included magnetic display base. Start your Marvel Now! X-Men collection with this champion of mutant rights and look for the rest of his team coming soon!
Release Date: October 2015
The 1/10th ARTFX+ statue format has been providing collectors with high quality, medium scale figures with top notch sculpts and affordable price tags, and the latest property to join the fun is none other than HALO. Of course, we couldn’t start this new lineup with anyone but the man, the myth, the legend, the MASTER CHIEF! Capturing John-117’s iconic green and gray armor with gold visor and assault rifle from the most recent Halo 4, the Master Chief adds several new innovations to the ARTFX+ format starting with its internal body and removable armor design; all of the outer pieces slide and/or snap into place over the techsuit body. Another first is the inclusion of limited articulation in the UNSC soldier for more posing options than the standard ARTFX+ statue! Sculpted by MIC, Master Chief stands nearly 8 1/2 inches tall (1/10th scale) and comes with magnets in his feet for added stability on his included metal display base. Be on the lookout for other interchangeable armor sets and ARTFX+ Halo statues coming soon from Kotobukiya!

A KOTOBUKIYA Japanese import! Kotobukiya last brought you full size ARTFX Iron Man armors from the movies with Iron Man 3, and now we’re expanding your collection with one of the stars of the upcoming blockbuster Avengers: Age of Ultron! In that film Robert Downey Jr. reprises his born-to-play role of Tony Stark while cutting edge special effects bring his armored forms to life like never before. If you’ve been keeping up we last saw the Mark 42 armor in the last Iron Man film, and so naturally the next step in the Armored Avenger’s development is Age of Ultron’s IRON MAN MARK 43!
In the Iron Man sequels and the first Avengers film we’ve seen Tony Stark continue to modify and improve his armors, with Iron Man 3 really showing off the range of possibilities in purpose-built systems. In Avengers: Age of Ultron Iron Man returns to a more classically-inspired look with the Mark 43, similar in shape and size to the previous favorite Mark 42. A direct descendent, the new version is a sleek machine with overlapping plates and a similar segmented look. The new Iron Man stands ready for battle in a classic pose with a slightly angled upper body, hands balled into fists at his sides, and his armored head tilted downward ominously. The Mark 43 continues the red and gold color scheme the fans know and love but features a return to scarlet dominating the armor; gold appears mostly on the limbs, down the sides of the torso, and of course on the faceplate. Also like the previous armor, Iron Man Mark 43 features the round Arc Reactor in its chest.
Sculpted by MIC, Iron Man Mark 43 stands just over 11 inches tall (1/6th scale) on a special Avengers logo base. Just like the previous Iron Man films ARTFX Statues, the Mark 43 is loaded with incredible sculpted and painted details bringing the armored suit to life like never before. Arriving later this year after the release of the film, the Mark 43 is sure to be the centerpiece of your Avengers: Age of Ultron collection!

A KOTOBUKIYA Japanese import! Kotobukiya continues its hit line of incredible Street Fighter Bishoujo statues, adding another beautiful lady to the current collection of Juri, Cammy, and Chun-Li. Up next is the schoolgirl who wants to be just like her hero Ryu, SAKURA! 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). Sakura Kasugano first began her training after seeing Ryu in the World Warrior tournament and sought him out to teach her, learning his moves and practicing his Ansatsuken techniques. Now the feisty young fighter joins the Bishoujo statue lineup based on an all new illustration by Shunya Yamashita!
Sakura explodes into action, leaping into the air to deliver a powerful attack! The young martial artist looks fierce yet adorable in her modified schoolgirl sailor outfit with blue and white blouse, blue skirt, blue socks, and red shoes. Sakura’s fantastic pose shows off her athletic physique and reveals some of her red undergarments; the girl also accessorizes with a yellow necktie, white headband with long ties, and red fingerless fighting gloves. Fantastic sculpted details include her expressive face and the intricate flowing of her clothing and short hair; in fact, there’s so much movement in this presentation you’ll swear Sakura is leaping right off of your shelf!
Sculpted by Masahiro Takahashi, Sakura stands 9 ½ inches tall (1/7 scale) as she leaps off of her specially designed display base. The schoolgirl and Ryu fan looks amazing on her own and even better alongside other Street Fighter Bishoujo statues like Cammy, Chun-Li, and Juri.

A Kotobukiya Japanese import! The Marvel Bishoujo collection, bringing you new interpretations of familiar superheroes and villains, continues with the perpetually youthful mutant and sidekick to Wolverine, Jubilee! First appearing in the pages of X-Men in 1989, Jubilation Lee was an orphan and runaway living in a mall when she ran into fellow mutant shoppers Dazzler, Psylocke, Rogue, and Storm. Following them to their base, the teen eventually signed on with the X-Men officially, becoming the youngest member and using her unique pyrotechnic powers to help save the day for decades until she became depowered (and subsequently a vampire). Jubilee’s most iconic look is now captured in a fantastic Bishoujo statue based on a new illustration by master artist Shunya Yamashita!
An awesome product of the late ‘80s, Jubilee was a spunky young girl with a loud sense of style, and all of that resonated with the fans and will again with this hot new statue. Jubilee stands a rocking pose, legs apart for balance and leaning slightly as she raises an arm into the air in preparation for unleashing a fiery display of plasmoids! The young mutant wears a hot update on her classic costume complete with blue high tops, jean short shorts with X logo belt, pink tube top, bright yellow jacket, and shredded black gloves. Jubilee accessorizes that ensemble with an X pin on her chest, choker, and pink sunglasses perched on her head. All of those details, as well as the heroine’s beautiful Bishoujo-styled face, are intricately sculpted and painted and look great on her!
Sculpted by Gotaro Takeuchi (Atelier Bamboo), Jubilee stands in 1/7 scale as she unleashes her mutant powers from the safety of your shelf. Add this rad young heroine to your Marvel Bishoujo Statue collection from Kotobukiya!
- Includes a special set of interchangeable techno glasses.

You’ve never seen your favorite horror movie icons like this! Kotobukiya brings a bold new direction to their popular series of Bishoujo Statues with the Freddy vs. Jason pair up, and following after Freddy is a new character interpretation by Shunya Yamashita of the slasher Jason Voorhees!
The Friday the 13th series began in 1980 with murders at Camp Crystal Lake, though it wasn’t until the sequel that Jason put on the famous mask and took matters into his own hands. Through successive sequels Voorhees would leave a trail of bodies from Crystal Lake to Manhattan, hell, and even the future before coming into conflict with Krueger in Freddy vs. Jason. Yamashita and Kotobukiya’s version of the slasher takes its inspiration from Jason’s on screen look but mixes in a beautiful girl in the bishoujo style. Voorhees stands in a relaxed pose in her tattered pants, top, and jacket with the iconic machete in one hand and an axe held over her shoulder. The scraps of her clothing reveal quite a bit of skin and her muscular physique, while her cute face is partly obscured by the nightmarish hockey mask strapped to the side of her head!
Sculpted by Takaboku Busujima (Busujimax), Jason stands over 8 ½ inches tall (1/7 scale). She’s a totally unique addition for your collection, and the perfect companion to the Freddy Krueger Bishoujo Statue!

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!

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!
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!

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!

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!

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!
