Kotobukiya has shared an update, giving collectors a look at their next high-end statue. The Immortal Hulk joins the Marvel Comics ARTFX Premier Statue line. The statue is based on the 2018 The Immortal Hulk comic series, which is fairly crazy. The series is presented as more of a horror comic than a traditional super hero story. After Bruce Banner is shot and killed, the Hulk emerges, posing the question; Is the Hulk truly immortal?
This 1/10 Scale Hulk Statue features the Green Goliath doing what he does best, wreaking havoc as he smashes his fists into the ground. The debris from his destruction forms the statue base. Previous reveals in the line include Thor, Captain America, and Iron Man. We don’t have official pricing just yet, but Kotobukiya promises that pre-orders will be going live soon.
UPDATE 4/18/2019: Kotobukiya has opened up pre-orders. Check out the new details and pre-order link after the jump.
Pre-orders for the fourth ARTFX Premier statue are coming soon!
Based on the 2018 Immortal Hulk comic book series which returned the green-skinned giant to his roots, the transformed Bruce Banner delivers a titanic “Hulk Smash” to the base on which he stands.
In order to give the ARTFX Premium statue a sense of overwhelming power beyond the likes of what can be seen on a computer monitor, the initial prototype was created using clay that was scanned and transformed into 3D data. Then Kotobukiya’s team could fine-tune all of the important, subtle details like the textures of the Hulk’s skin and shredded trousers.
HULK ARTFX PREMIER STATUE – $204.99
The fourth entry in the elite ARTFX Premier series is the Hulk!
This 1/10 scale statue was crafted down to the finest detail using digital sculpting, giving this expertly
crafted collector’s piece an exquisite appearance alongside lifelike detail.
The craftsmanship in this piece continues from the sculpting to the painting. Unlike other pieces which
follow the pattern of a simple base coat with shading. ARTFX Premier re-evaluates the standards for
figure painting. Each individual piece of the statue is layered with several types of paint, giving the
finished product an unprecedented sense of beauty and depth.
The ARTFX Premier rendition of Hulk is based on the 2018 Immortal Hulk comics, which pays homage
to the character’s roots. The statue depicts the transformed Bruce Banner delivering a powerful Hulk
smash to the base on which he stands. The statue’s powerful posing and realistic detail fully capture the
Hulk’s wild and unbridled strength in his transformed state. In order to give the statue an overpowering
sense of power beyond the likes of which can be seen through the monitor of a computer, the initial
prototype of the statue was created using clay. The model was then scanned and transformed into 3D
data, allowing Kotobukiya’s craftsmen to fine-tune the details such as the texture of Hulk’s skin and
shredded denim trousers.
The intricate craftsmanship of this piece continues from the sculpting to the painting, with a multi-
layered paint job that highlights the level of detail that has gone into the piece. This rendition of the
Hulk offers not only the weight and volume of a scale rendition of the character, but an attentive level of
detail that offers quality alongside quantity.
