Kotobukiya Vision Statue Close-Up NYCC 2016

Unlike past years, Kotobukiya didn’t bring any never-before-seen Marvel statues prototypes to New York Comic Con 2016 this week.

But while we didnt get to see anything totally unannounced at NYCC 2016, we did get to see several updated sculptures in person for the very first time at the event–including the Bishoujo Squirrel Girl and painted versions of the Super Deadpool ARTFX and Vision Fine Arts statues!

Back at SDCC 2016, Kotobukiya revealed the early prototype of the upcoming Agent Venom ARTFX+ statue, leading us to believe he’d be next in the Spider-Man series. But instead, Koto has thrown us a real curveball this week with perhaps the most-anticipated character in the wave–the Kotobukiya Spider-Gwen ARTFX+ Statue is now up for order! Gwen is looking mighty fine (as always), but she also comes with an unexpected price increase…

Kotobukiya Miles Morales ARTFX+ Statue Close-Up

Up until now, every single character that Kotobukiya has released as part of their 1/10 scale Marvel ARTFX+ statues range has been a classic, decades-old character. But there’s a first time for everything, and the first modern-created character to grace this style is about to arrive as the second entry in the Spider-Man ARTFX+ Series! He swung into our hearts five years ago this month, and now he’s web-slinging into our statue collections–the Kotobukiya Spider-Man Miles Morales ARTFX+ Statue is now up for order!

Kotobukiya Lady Thor Bishoujo Statue Promo Poster

Over the weekend I talked about a trio of new Kotobukiya Marvel statues that unexpectedly debuted at SDCC 2016 last week–but I didn’t talk about the statues we were expecting to see that were revealed there. Such is the case with a piece I was skeptical about–right up until I saw it. It might be one of the very best (and most classy) additions to the Marvel Bishoujo line yet: the 1/7 Kotobukiya Lady Thor Bishoujo statue is now up for order!

We’re now under one month out from San Diego Comic-Con 2016, and that means it’s time for all remaining Marvel toy licensees to put their cards on the table and show off their SDCC 2016 exclusives!

In Kotobukiya’s case, I really wasn’t sure what to expect from the Bishoujo line–but I can promise I didn’t see this exclusive coming: the Kotobukiya SDCC 2016 exclusive Lady Deadpool Bisjoujo statue!

Kotobukiya Thanos Statue Infinity Gauntlet Close-Up

Kotobukiya teased us with their 1/6 Thanos statue at NYCC 2015 and then showed off the prototype in-person for the first time at the 2016 New York Toy Fair, so it’s been over half a year now that we’ve known this piece has been coming.

Kotobukiya Magneto ARTFX+ Statue White Version Review

Kotobukiya X-Men Magneto ARTFX+ Review White Version

I used to find it virtually unthinkable that I would ever prefer any modern costume over Magento’s classic red and purple duds. But then a crazy thing happened: I fell in love with ** Magneto in the Marvel Puzzle Quest game, and white costume Magneto quickly became my favorite costume for him ever. And now, as unlikely as it seemed, the Marvel NOW! white costume has been captured in statue form, and for just over 50 bucks the white Kotobukiya Magneto ARTFX+ Statue is now mine

Kotobukiya Civil War Captain America & Iron Man ARTFX+ Statues!

Captain America Civil War Kotobukiya ARTFX+ Statues

Though we’re under a month away from the theatrical release of the Captain America: Civil War movie in theaters, we hadn’t heard a peep from Kotobukiya about any collectibles for the movie. At least, not until this week, when they revealed a pair of complementary statues. I don’t think there’s a Marvel collector in the world who’ll be truly surprised by the characters chosen, but these sure are nice-looking Captain America and Iron Man ARTFX+ statues!

Kotobukiya Wolverine ARTFX+ Statue Photos & Order Info!

Wolverine Kotobukiya ARTFX+ Statue Close-Up

At this time last year, I was still whining about how Kotobukiya hadn’t even brought unpainted prototypes of any of their Marvel Now X-Men ARTFX+ statues series to New York Toy Fair 2015. Barely over a year later, and that’s a complaint of the past! Not only did Koto have the entire range of ARTFX+ X-Men statues on display at New York Toy Fair 2016, but with this week’s pre-order, the cycle–and the team–are complete: the Kotobukiya Wolverine ARTFX+ statue is now up for order!

Toy Fair 2016: Kotobukiya Wolverine ARTFX+ Statue Photos!

Since Kotobukiya already showed off the official photos of Rogue and put her up for order earlier this week, I had my hopes high that we’d at least get to see an unpainted prototype of the last figure in the Kotobukiya X-Men ARTFX+ statue line at New York Toy Fair 2016 this weekend. Instead, the finished, painted prototype made its debut: the Kotobukiya Wolverine ARTFX+ Statue has now been revealed!

Kotobukiya X-Men Rogue ARTFX+ Statue Up for Order!

Kotobukiya Rogue ARTFX+ Statue Pre-Order

My, how time flies! It feels like just yesterday, but it was actually almost exactly a year ago to the day that I was lamenting that Kotobukiya didn’t have a single one of their X-Men ARTFX+ statues on display at last year’s Toy Fair.

And now, as I get ready to leave for the New York Toy Fair 2016, the penultimate character in the line has been fully revealed: the Kotobukiya X-Men Rogue ARTFX+ Statue is now up for order!
