January’s New Announcments from Kotobukiya: Marvel, Star Wars, DC, Resident Evil

Kotobukiya today sent over a batch of pictures of new products that are coming later this year.  Keep scrolling for full details and images of the Ikeman Red Hood statue, the Black Panther movie ArtFX statue, Defenders Luke Cage ArtFX satue, the Resident Evil Chris Redfield ArtFX, and the Star Wars: The Last Jedi Praetorian Guard ArtFX+ statues.

DC COMICS RED HOOD IKEMEN STATUE WITH BONUS PART
A KOTOBUKIYA Japanese import!  Kotobukiya is branching out into an all new statue concept with IKEMEN. Similar to the popular Bishoujo series, this fantastic expansion is a lineup of popular characters re-designed by the famous Japanese illustrator Ricken in the Japanese Ikemen (“handsome men”) style.
Following up after the debut Nightwing is a true bad boy in the Batman Family, RED HOOD! After Dick Grayson left Bruce Wayne’s side to branch out on his own, Batman needed a new sidekick and found the young hoodlum Jason Todd to be his replacement. Todd excelled as Robin but had a violent edge, and the boy unfortunately met his end at the hands of the Joker. Even death can’t keep a good character down, and Jason returned to life and became the anti-hero known as Red Hood, who takes his place as the second Ikemen style hunk with a special first edition with bonus part!
Jason Todd has always been a rebel, and here he stands in a defiant pose just begging you to look at him. As Red Hood he wears a super cool (and intricately sculpted) costume with black boots, reinforced black trousers, an armored black shirt decorated with a red bat logo, and a brown leather jacket with red accents and silver zippers. Of course, he wouldn’t be in the Ikemen style unless his pose and outfit highlighted Jason’s slim but muscular physique, and as Red Hood stands with one leg extended and one hand behind his head he shows off his toned body. The dark hero comes with interchangeable heads so you can customize your display: a full Red Hood helmet, a bare head revealing an aloof expression on his face and his black hair with a white streak, and exclusive to this first edition a bonus head wearing a sleek red domino mask! Sculpted by the talented Naoya Muto, Red Hood stands in 1/7 scale. Add this handsome hero to your collection and be on the lookout for more upcoming Ikemen Statues from Kotobukiya like Red Robin!

MARVEL THE DEFENDERS SERIES LUKE CAGE ARTFX+ STATUE
A KOTOBUKIYA Japanese import!  Kotobukiya’s Marvel Comics ARTFX+ Statues have brought you Avengers, X-Men, and most recently Spider-Man and characters from his world, but now we turn our attention to the street-level heroes of the Defenders. Next up in the quartet is the man with superhuman strength and unbreakable skin, LUKE CAGE! Born Carl Lucas, the hero first appeared in 1972 and was a prisoner convicted for a crime he did not commit. An experiment gave him his superpowers, and he set off on a literal career of heroism as a “Hero for Hire.” Luke Cage has had his big moments, even joining the Avengers and getting his own series on Netflix, and now he powers into the ARTFX+ Statue lineup in a tremendous way based on concept art by Dale Keown!

Criminals better watch out, because Luke Cage is on the case! The hero for hire stands ready to dish out justice as only he can, standing in a slight crouch with his legs spread for balance. Luke leans forward slightly and menacingly, with his arms hanging down and ready for action. The Defender is massively muscled and his superhuman physique shows through his casual white t-shirt and blue jeans which he wears with black boots and a belt with a gold “C” logo buckle. Luke also wears big golden bracelets and carries two lengths of chains that evoke the image of his costume from his days as Power Man! His clenched teeth and scowl are enough to intimidate any criminal, and he looks like he just stepped right out of a comic book. Sculpted by Junnosuke Abe (RESTORE), the master behind all of the Marvel ARTFX+ releases, Luke Cage stands 7 ½ inches tall (1/10 th scale) with magnets in his feet providing perfect stability on the included display base. Add this warrior for justice to your display and pair him with other Defenders ARTFX+ Statues Daredevil, Jessica Jones, and Iron Fist!

MARVEL BLACK PANTHER MOVIE BLACK PANTHER ARTFX STATUE
A KOTOBUKIYA Japanese import!  Kotobukiya’s next elite ARTFX Statue returns to the Marvel Cinematic Universe and celebrates the breakout hero of 2016’s Captain America: Civil War and the star of his own upcoming blockbuster, BLACK PANTHER! A prince of the mysterious nation Wakanda, T’Challa was thrust into the spotlight when a terrorist attack killed his father and elevated him to the throne. Now he holds the dual responsibility of ruling his people as king and protecting the world as the costumed Black Panther, and it’s that hero who claws his way to you now in a glorious 1/6 scale statue representing 2018’s Black Panther film!

A hero unlike any other in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Black Panther stalks his prey across ancient Wakandan ruins and will never let his target escape. T’Challa is frozen in place as he steps lightly over the rubble, using his feline grace to move silently and quickly. Enhanced with cutting edge vibranium technology, Black Panther’s incredibly detailed black body suit combines a subtle texture with reinforced sections and decorative silver elements, not to mention wicked claws that can slice through nearly anything. The suit highlights the hero’s muscular physique and his tensed pose as he prepares for action. It also extends over Black Panther’s head with its menacing feline face plate and subtle “ear” protrusions to complete the overall look. Black Panther stands over 12 ½ inches tall (1/6th scale) atop his Wakandan jungle ruins base. Get your hands on this technologically advanced hero and star of the Marvel Cinematic Universe!

RESIDENT EVIL: VENDETTA CHRIS REDFIELD ARTFX STATUE
A KOTOBUKIYA Japanese import!  The Resident Evil franchise has been scaring fans around the world for over 20 years, first with a long series of video games and then with other spinoff media. Kotobukiya is proud to partner with Capcom and present all new ARTFX Statues from the recently released 3D animated film Resident Evil: Vendetta, and after Leon S. Kennedy comes the other main protagonist CHRIS REDFIELD! Originally a Special Tactics and Rescue Service (STARS) officer of the Raccoon City police when he made his debut in the original Resident Evil game, Chris went on to become a Bioterrorism Security Assessment Alliance (BSAA) agent and in Vendetta joined fellow survivors Leon Kennedy and Rebecca Chambers in trying to take down the criminal “death merchant” Glenn Arias in New York City. Now you can take home this tough guy hero in a dynamic new 1/6 scale ARTFX Statue presentation!

Capturing the BSAA Silver Dagger captain as he appears in the opening sequence of the film, Chris stalks the battlefield peering down the scope of his M4A1 Assault Carbine, ready to take the killing shot. He is heavily armored, unlike his partner Leon, wearing heavy-duty B.O.W. combat gear consisting of armor plates, holsters, and a tactical belt over drab fatigues. Chris is covered in extra ammo and equipment like a pistol, knife, walkie talkie, and more, and on his arm is the Silver Dagger counterterrorism unit emblem patch. His pose is all business, with feet spread wide for balance as he fires his weapon two-handed. Captain Redfield stares down his target with an extremely focused expression on his face, his short-shorn hair never getting in the way of taking his shot. Sculpted by M.I.C., Chris Redfield stands nearly 11 ½ inches tall (1/6 scale) atop a specially designed Resident Evil display base resembling the villa floor from a key rescue mission, and around his feet are empty magazines, cartridges, and blood spray. Display Chris by himself or alongside his Vendetta ally Leon S. Kennedy!
