Toy Fair 2013: The Kotobukiya Booth|
Let's start off with the DC New 52 ArtFX statues. The 2013 Toy fair marks the first time that the whole New 52 Justice League ArtFX collection was on display together at a public event. This neat set-up includes the League as they're seen in the New 52 Justice League comic book (Superman, Flash, Hal Jordan, Batman, Cyborg, Aquaman, and Wonder Woman).
Alongside the New 52 Justice League Collection was the Joker The Killing Joke statue, which was revealed during the 2012 New York Comic-Con.
Also, Kotobukiya is proud to announce the Black Canary as part of their statue collection.
Moving on to the Stars Wars display, Kotobukiya's Star Wars business card holders, which were only available in Japan and in limited quantities at Star Wars: Celebration Six, will now be made available to North America for the first time.
Fans will also be happy to know that we'll be getting a General Grievous statue added to the Star Wars statue line. He was unpainted, but that didn't take away from the amazing accuracy and detail this Grievous statue portrayed. There is still talk on whether or not the cape will be included and the price has yet to be determined, but either way, this statue is sure to deliver.
Now, on to the Star Wars ice trays. There were a slew of previously announced trays on display, but the newest one, the Boba Fett silicone ice tray was shown and looks great!
Another favorite license of ours is Iron Man 3 and Kotobukiya had an amazing Iron Man Mark 42 statue on display.
Kotobukiya is also happy to announce that they will be producing items based off the upcoming movie Superman: Man of Steel. Even though there was nothing on display, we're willing to bet that this line will be nothing short of amazing.
Finally, we made our way over to the super-awesome and amazingly detailed Isaac Clarke ArtFX statue. Featuring LED lights, and standing 12.5-inches tall, this statue is sure to sell out fast.
After we left the fun at the Kotobukiya booth, we continued the party elsewhere, where we had the opportunity and honor to celebrate sixty years of the Kotobukiya tradition. From what started as a tiny hobby shop in Tokyo, to what is now one of the industries most innovative and inspiring companies, we wish Kotobukiya another prosperous sixty years ahead.
