Cap Takes On Iron Man In Kotobokiya’s Latest ArtFX+ Statues

Kotobukiya-LogoIt’s hero vs. hero as Kotobukiya’s hit Marvel ARTFX+ series returns to the big screen with the upcoming mega-blockbuster Captain America: Civil War. Two mighty characters headline the new collection starting with the star-spangled hero CAPTAIN AMERICA and a brand new armor suit, the IRON MAN MARK 46!

Fighting for freedom and his friends, Captain America (portrayed in the Marvel Cinematic Universe by
Chris Evans) heads into battle fearlessly even against his one-time ally and fellow Avenger Iron Man. The pinnacle of human ability thanks to the Super Soldier Serum created by Abraham Erskine, Captain America charges forward in his distinctive uniform, his shield leading the way and one fist cocked and ready to strike for justice. Steve Rogers looks like he stepped right off the screen with an incredibly accurate sculpt capturing all of the intricate details of his patriotic red, white, and blue costume including the reinforced armor, straps, buckles, boots, gloves, and of course the “A” mask with chinstrap. And while the colors on his costume are muted his iconic shield is bright with metallic paint and will immediately catch your eye in your Marvel collection.

Meanwhile, the latest creation of Tony Stark (portrayed as always by Robert Downey Jr.) is the Iron
Man Mark 46. It incorporates all of the brilliant inventor’s cutting edge innovations, though it’s sadly
brought to a conflict with fellow superhero Captain America. This brand new Iron Man suit is a perfect
replica of the one you’ll see in the film, and it’s captured in a super cool battle pose as the Armored
Avenger lunges forward and steadies his right arm for a repulsor ray blast! A direct descendent of
previous suits like the Mark 43, the Mark 46 suit is a sleek war machine with interlocking armor plates,
tons of technological details, and of course the awesome chest-mounted arc reactor and trademark
faceplate. Of course, all of that is presented in gleaming red and gold with additional silver accents.

Sculpted by the same master artist responsible for many of the Marvel ARTFX+ statues, Junnosuke Abe (RESTORE), Captain America and Iron Man each stand just over 7 inches tall (in the ARTFX+ 1/10th scale). Both heroes charge dynamically across a cracked and broken concrete battleground, and while each Captain America: Civil War ARTFX+ Statue is an incredible display piece on its own, they’re even better together as their bases join to create an amazing battle scene! These have a suggested retail price of $69.99 each and will be available October 2016.
