Koto Red Robin ARTFX 010

We have our first official look at the Kotobukiya Red Robin ARTFX+ Statue, which we last saw at SDCC 2015. The 1/10 scale statue stands at 7″ tall and is due out in May 2016. It will be priced at $54.99. Here are more details from Koto:

The latest DC Comics ARTFX+ Statue from Kotobukiya adds another member of the “Batman Family” of characters from the pages of the New 52, RED ROBIN!  The third assistant to Batman after Dick Grayson and Jason Todd, Tim Drake is famous for his detective skills; he actually figured out the Dark Knight’s secret identity all on his own.  But like those before him Drake eventually emerged from the shadow of the Bat to be his own hero and so became Red Robin, leader of the Teen Titans.  That was his role in the New 52 era of DC Comics, and now that incarnation is joining the ever-growing lineup of ARTFX+ Statues!

Brilliant and confident, Red Robin points at villains as though saying “I know all of your secrets!”  The young hero is clad in his distinctive costume first seen in the New 52, a complex black bodysuit with built-in red armor panels and reinforced boots.  On top of that he wears a black utility belt full of pouches, gloves with yellow accents, a red domino mask, and a yellow and blue chest harness that connects to his jetpack and segmented red cape that allows him to fly.  Tim Drake’s outfit has a great metallic, glossy sheen that really brings to life his high tech gear, and there are tons of cool details from his defined musculature to the Teen Titans logo on his shoulder, and much more.  And despite the cocky grin on his face you know Red Robin means business as he holds his trusty staff at the ready!

Sculpted by Naoya Muto, Red Robin stands just over 7 inches tall (1/10 scale) and like all ARTFX+ statues he has magnets in his feet for extra stability on his included display base.  The high flying teen hero looks great on his own and makes a perfect companion piece for the other Batman Family ARTFX+ statues like Red Hood, Nightwing, Damian Wayne, and of course the Dark Knight himself!

Tali Zorah Bishoujo Statue Bioware Ex 002

Bioware is offering an exclusive version of the Kotobukiya Mass Effect 3 Tali’Zorah Bishoujo Statue. The statue will feature an exclusive color scheme and is limited to 2,000 pieces. Here are more details from Bioware and Kotobukiya:

Kotobukiya continues its line of Bishoujo statues from the Mass Effect series (after the alluring Liara T’soni and the female version of Commander Shepard) with the hauntingly beautiful TALI’ZORAH! You’ve never seen the Quarian Machinist look quite like this, based on a fantastic new character interpretation by master illustrator Shunya Yamashita.

She joins the Bishoujo lineup wearing her iconic Quarian garb with a purple, black, and yellow bodysuit complete with intricate layers and different textures, a skirt, belts, a hood, and complex boots fitted to her uniquely-shaped legs and feet. The color palette is really striking with the bright yellow accents, and the alien’s face is covered by a semi-opaque pink faceshield and respirator. Tali is captured sinuously walking forward, leaning over gracefully as she wields her Quarian Reegar Carbine.

Tali’Zorah stands just over 9 inches tall (1/7 scale) on a special display base. Add her to your Mass Effect collection and display her next to the previously released Liara T’soni and Commander Shepard Bishoujo statues!

The Exclusive Edition is limited to 2,000 units, features a special paint variant, and is only available on the BioWare Store!

It’s priced at $89 and is scheduled to ship in March 2016. You can pre-order it Here. Read on to see the photos.

Marvel Now Magik ARTFX Statue 006

Kotobukiya Japan has posted up photos and info for the upcoming Marvel Now Magik ARTFX+ Statue. The 1/10 scale statue will stand at 7.5″ tall. The statue joins other Marvel Now Uncanny X-Men ARTFX+ Statues such as Magneto, Emma Frost and Cyclops. The statue is scheduled for a January 2016 release in Japan.

Updated info from Kotobukiya US:

A Kotobukiya Japanese import! 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. Joining previously released Cyclops, Emma Frost, and Magneto is the team’s teleporter and sorceress Magik!

Magik was introduced in Marvel Comics in 1975, but back then she was just Illyana Rasputin, the kid sister of Piotr Rasputin (better known as Colossus). Illyana is a mutant as well with the power to teleport herself and others. As if that wasn’t cool enough, she also became a powerful sorceress thanks to her connection to Limbo and wields the mighty Soulsword! Magik takes her place among Cyclops’ team of fearless X-Men with a stunning new look, standing at attention and letting her massive sword do the talking. She is posed dynamically with her feet spread apart, her hands laid on top of the pommel of her Soulsword stuck into the ground before her. The eldritch mutant wears a unique costume consisting of thigh high leather boots, short shorts, a halter top with armored shoulders, armbands, and gloves. Her highly detailed sculpt brings out all of the cool little elements of her clothing like the buckles on her footwear, the spikes and armored fingers of her left arm, and the shafts extending from hair. Magik’s costume is almost all black with silver accents and the red “X” on her shoulder, all of which contrasts nicely with her pale skin, blonde hair, and solid white eyes. Meanwhile, her Soulsword radiates with an intense yellow energy.

Sculpted by the same master artist who did the Marvel Now! Avengers series, Junosuke Abe, Magik stands over 7.5 inches tall (in the ARTFX+ 1/10th scale) on her included magnetic display base. Illyana and her Soulsword look great on their own and will be the perfect centerpiece to your Marvel Now X-Men collection!

Available February 2016.
