Kotobukiya Defenders ARTFX+ Daredevil Statue Up for Order!

Kotobukiya ARTFX+ Daredevil Statues Black and Red

At New York Comic Con 2017, Kotobukiya confirmed what most fans had already guessed: that the first entry in the ARTFX+ Defenders statues lineup would be a comics-based figure of the icon of the Netflix Marvel franchise, Daredevil. The reveal of a black costume variant right off the bat was a switch (Koto has never done variants immediately in a Marvel ARTFX+ series before), and now collectors can have their choice: both versions of the ARTFX+ Daredevil statues are now up for order!

Remember that one legendary issue of the Amazing Spider-Man (#615) that came out way back in 2009, wherein Spidey briefly wore earmuffs and a hat and scarf…? Yeah–neither do I.

Kotobukiya’s Marvel ARTFX+ line has grown over the past half decade to be a real low-priced statue juggernaut, with lineups from the X-Men, Avengers, Spider-Verse and soon Defenders all represented in 1:10 scale. But there’s one sub-series I was hoping to see end, and despite Inverse Deadpool being blown out at half price this week at the B&N 50% Off Sale, it’s back: the series of Deadpool ARTFX+ statue repaints continues with… Cook Deadpool?!

We are truly living in a golden age of Marvel toys and collectibles, with more figures, statues and assorted merch coming out each year than I ever would have dreamed of a decade ago. However, there’s one gaping void in my collecting life right now: the lack of a true, regularly released Bowen Designs styled classic 1/6 statue line.

This week’s Marvel toy news drought is still going strong, so it’s time for me to pull from my remaining photos stash from last month’s New York Toy Fair 2017! Like most years, Kotobukiya had a 1/6th scale Marvel ARTFX statue on display at Toy Fair 2017. But unlike most years (okay, every year), this time it wasn’t Iron Man-related!
