Kotobukiya has released photos and info for their upcoming X-Men Danger Room Sessions Cyclops Fine Art Statue. The statue is due out in March of next year.
A Kotobukiya Japanese import! It’s been a little while, but Koto’s amazing X-Men Danger Room Sessions Fine Art Statue series is back! The last time we visited the X-Men training facility was with the Cajun hero Gambit, but now the mutants are more formidable than ever with their leader 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 is so named for his monocular ruby quartz visor; he can flip it open to unleash powerful optic blasts against his opponents! Being a long-standing member of the X-Men means that Cyclops has done a lot of training in 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. Celebrating the classic look of Scott Summers from the Jim Lee era of the early 1990s, the mutant leader and tactical genius prepares an optic blast for whatever the Danger Room can throw at him. Cyclops wears what many consider to be his coolest costume, a sleek blue bodysuit with bright yellow accessories like trunks, gloves, boots, harness, and a variety of belts. While not always the most physically imposing X-Man, “Slim” here shows that he’s been working out with a powerful physique and tensed muscles. Cyclops leans forward with arms outstretched at his sides in a classic pose that means he’s about to unleash a blast of massive concussive force. The mutant leader has all of the fine attention to detail you’ve come to know and love from the Danger Room Sessions series, especially in the nuances of his costume. Each belt and strap is individually sculpted along with pouches and “X” symbols. Cyclops has an excellent head sculpt that captures the hero’s ferocious intensity as well as his windblown brown hair. Sculpted by Erick Sosa, Cyclops stands 10 ½ inches tall in 1/6th scale with the other Danger Room Sessions members like Psylocke, Wolverine, and Colossus. Also like them, Scott Summers stands on a unique Danger Room holographic environment; this one features half of a smashed Sentinel head! No Danger Room set or Cyclops collection would be complete without this amazing Fine Art Statue.
Available March 2013.
