New Images of Kotobukiya’s Marvel Presents Statues

Posted by Luke Brown On June - 22 - 2010

Enjoy some high-quality images of Kotobukiya’s latest statues from their “Marvel Comics Presents” line, including Deadpool, Iron Man, and Wolverine.

I’ve always enjoyed Kotobukiya’s work, and their latest batch of Marvel-related statues have been nothing short of phenomenal. Sure, that awesomeness comes at a premium price, but for the quality and scale, you’d have a hard time finding an equal to what Koto is offering. Case in point, the latest three statues of Deadpool, Iron Man, and Wolverine. Considering the Iron man statue was redesigned at the last minute with Koto found out about the new suit, I’d say that they captured Salvador Larocca’s art in 3D form spot-on. Their Deadpool statue invokes the best of the Ed McGuinness style without looking ridiculous. I’m not the most die-hard of Deadpool fans, but even I can appreciate the way in which the sculptor has brought the merc with a mouth to life. The Wolverine statue certainly looks good, but I’ve got enough Wolverine-related material in my house that I don’t need an expensive statue. I’d rather put that money towards the Thor that will be coming out in conjunction with the previously announced Captain America, and the Iron Man statue below, to form an Avengers Reborn diorama of sorts.

You can check out some high-res pics, as well as detailed specs on the statues, below, and judge for yourself.


MARVEL COMICS PRESENTS KOTOBUKIYA COLLECTION
DEADPOOL FINE ART STATUE

A KOTOBUKIYA Japanese import! The “Merc with a Mouth” is on a rampage! One of the most popular comic book superheroes in the business, Wade Wilson is popping up everywhere, and now he’s taken over Kotobukiya as the next Fine Art Statue in the Marvel Comics Presents collection, DEADPOOL! Formerly a member of the Weapon X program, Wilson has since struck out on his own as an assassin for hire and independent agent. With his trademark costume, extensive armory, and nonstop witty repartee, Deadpool makes a huge impact wherever he goes.

Never stopping for a moment, Deadpool is posed in the midst of intense action, leaping over a crate with weapons at the ready. His iconic red and black skin-tight costume highlights the mutant assassin’s muscular physique as well as the intense concentration apparent on his face. Deadpool is also laden with his usual assortment of goodies, including the knife sheathed on his left ankle, various waist pouches, and a gun holstered on his right thigh. Depending on what style of fighting you prefer, Deadpool can be outfitted with either set of included arms; one wields his deadly katanas and the other fires intricately detailed Uzis!

Deadpool stands approximately 10 inches tall, leaning over a detailed battle scene complete with crate and even a tiny Deadpool “plush” toy! Sculpted by Erick and William Valenzuela, the demented yet hilarious assassin is recreated in high quality cold cast resin. Get him… before he gets you.

MARVEL COMICS PRESENTS: THE KOTOBUKIYA COLLECTION
AVENGERS REBORN IRON MAN FINE ART STATUE

A KOTOBUKIYA Japanese import! A “cool exec with a heart of steel,” Tony Stark is the invincible IRON MAN, fighting for justice as a modern day knight in high-tech armor. Created in 1963 by a group of comic book luminaries (including Stan Lee and Jack Kirby), Stark was a rich playboy whose capture during the Cold War led him to create the technologically advanced powered armor suit known as Iron Man. Best known for fighting enemies such as Mandarin and Crimson Dynamo, Stark would over the years combat his own personal demons as well, making him a very nuanced and interesting character popular the world over. As a member of the Avengers Iron Man joined with other famous superheroes like Captain America and Thor to face even larger threats to humanity, the Earth, and even the universe!

Tony Stark is battle ready as he stands in the classic Repulsor Ray-blasting Iron Man pose, both hands pointing toward an unseen enemy that’s about to feel the power of his high tech weaponry! Stepping right out of the pages of Invincible Iron Man, the Iron Man armor is intricately sculpted to highlight every armor plate and technological detail, with a stunning paint scheme in the character’s traditional red and gold. Based on Salvador Larocca’s artwork, the Avenger’s construction was overseen by the artist himself to ensure its faithfulness to the comic series!

Sculpted by master artist Erick Sosa with William Valenzuela and constructed of high-quality cold cast porcelain, Iron Man stands over 13 inches tall (1/6th scale). One foot rests on his exclusive rocky environmental base that connects to those of the other members of the Avengers Reborn series, Thor and Captain America. Gather all three for the ultimate assembly of Avengers!
