From Kotobukiya! Marvel Comics is the next great property to get Kotobukiya’s ARTFX+ statue treatment, and so of course the first series is none other than the Avengers, specifically the characters as they appear in Marvel Now. In 2012 the comic book company relaunched several titles, shifting some characters into different books and updating some for a modern audience. More than anything, it provided a perfect jumping on point for new readers. Now the characters are brought to life as never before based on concept artwork by superstar artist Adi Granov. For the very first Avengers ARTFX+ release… well, he’s big, he’s green, and he’s always angry… it’s the HULK!
The massive Hulk stands just barely under 10 inches tall (in the ARTFX+ 1/10th scale) on his included magnetic display base. Hulk will be joined by his fellow Avengers with upcoming releases Hawkeye, Black Widow, Captain America, Iron Man, and Thor, so get him to begin your collection!

Marvel Comics is the next great property to get Kotobukiya’s ARTFX+ statue treatment and so of course the first series is none other than the Avengers, specifically the characters as they appear in Marvel Now. For the very first Avengers ARTFX+ release. well, he’s big, he’s green and he’s always angry. it’s the HULK! Bruce Banner was a scientist studying the effects of gamma radiation when he was caught in an explosion. Rather than destroy him the energies transformed him into the massive green-skinned Hulk! The Avenger stands in a classic comic book pose, angled to the side and leaning forward with his arms outstretched. The Hulk has his leading hand open as though to taunt his enemies, though his right hand behind him is balled into a fist to deliver a mighty blow! The Hulk is fantastically detailed with intricate musculature down to his sinews and veins and the harsh grimace on his face shows off the rage he can’t keep bottled up in battle. Banner’s alter ego wears his traditional tattered purple pants (no Hulk would be complete without them) and his skin is expertly painted with varying shades of green. The massive Hulk stands just barely under 10 Inch tall (in the ARTFX+ 1/10th scale) on his included magnetic display base. Hulk will be joined by his fellow Avengers with upcoming releases Hawkeye, Black Widow, Captain America, Iron Man and Thor, so get him to begin your collection!
Expected Release Date: May 2014

An exclusive figure, this awesome masked Wolverine is the latest addition to Marvel Select’s awesome line.
Standing about 8 inches tall, his brown costume is a more muted (and more awesome?) version of the stark yellow and black outfit we’re used to seeing. He comes with a sweet figure stand and a Samurai base that makes us all the more excited for the upcoming Wolverine-in-Japan film, The Wolverine.

Unveiled at San Diego Comic-Con 2012, the video game trailer featuring everyone’s favorite insane assassin, Deadpool. The trailer starts off with Deadpool breaking the fourth wall and talking to himself before switching to the character doing what he does best: killing people. The game seems as over-the-top as one would expect it to be, with the superhero yelling out catchphrases like ‘Bang Bang’ and ‘Pew Pew’ while firing his pistols. He even says ‘Sh*t’ in the trailer.
The game seems very in line with the comics and has the extraordinarily talented Nolan North voicing Deadpool, as he has in a handful of other games and animated movies the character has appeared in. The game looks to be a third person action/shooter, with a very distinct comic-book style to it. If you’re a fan of Deadpool (and who isn’t), this title should definitely be on your radar.
Little else is known about Deadpool aside from what’s shown in the trailer.

Mystique is one of many Marvel femmes fatale, but she might just be the one with the most widespread appeal.
This Bishoujo figure makes it clear why.
KOTOBUKIYA Japanese import! The popular Marvel Bishoujo collection (combining iconic superheroes and villains with traditional Japanese stylings) continues to bring you the amazing beauties of the Marvel Comics universe as you’ve never seen them before. Last time we saw the ninja warrior Elektra, and sneaking up behind her in the lineup is one of the most famous, and beautiful, mutants ever, MYSTIQUE! The mysterious blue-skinned mutant first appeared in the pages of Ms. Marvel in 1978, and ever since she’s been making waves. With the ability to shapeshift and mimic anyone, Mystique is incredibly powerful and dangerous. She puts her own interests above anyone else’s and at times has worked on the side of good as well as that of evil. Taking on her natural blue-skinned form, Mystique triumphantly appears in the Japanese Bishoujo (“pretty girl”) style based on an original character reinterpretation by renowned illustrator Shunya Yamashita.

Before he was the awesome Samuel L. Jackson, Nick Fury looked a lot like he does in this new Sidesshow statue– and we suppose he was pretty cool, too.
This latest addition to the line is a 16-inch Comiquette, featuring the original version of the character wielding his classic dual pistols–though he also has a switch-out hand in case you prefer he’d have a magnum revolver. Hand-painted and finished, it’s a limited edition statue that captures the character in a way that feels at once very old and very new.
