So with SDCC 2012 coming to an end, what did you find to be the most exciting? I know I caught some coverage on SpikeTV. I saw a short interview with Jim Lee that I found to be interesting. It looked like there was a lot of excitement at the event–I still wish I could have made it. Of all the news that came out, though, I think I am most interested in the New 52 ArtFX statues by Kotobukiya. Assuming that I like the pose, I tend to like statues a little more than the action figures, and the Superman and Green Lantern ArtFX were really neat. I’ve been happy with most of the Kotobukiya pieces that we’ve gotten recently, and I’m really looking forward to where they go with this new DC line. What news did you find most interesting this year, and what new figures/statues are you looking forward to?
With The Amazing Spiderman now out in theaters, we thought we’d take a moment to share this cool statue coming out later this fall. This is the Kotobukiya Spider-man Unleased statue. We got to see a pre-production version at the New York Toy Fair in February, and it was a really nice looking piece. The pose sculpted by Erick Sosa really captures the feel of Spiderman flying through the air, and the web-slinging out into the air really adds a nice touch. There is an upcoming statue of Venom that accompanies this piece, and we are excited to see the final result of these two pieces together. Check out this statue and other Spiderman items on our website.
