Kotobukiya’s DC Comics New 52 Superman ArtFX Statue
After watching the Man of Steel, and also reading the latest two issues of Superman Unchained, I have been thinking to get the action figure as well. My son has been asking for it as well. I am still undecided whether to get the DC Direct’s or the Kotobukiya’s Superman.
Both are tempting just that DC Direct’s Superman is pose-able while Kotobukiya is a statue.
I was doing some research and read a few reviews. Let’s have a look at Kotobukiya’s DC Comics New 52 Superman ArtFX Statue first.
- Imported from Japan
- Sculpted by Goutaro Takeuchi
- Stands approximately 7.5 Inch tall
- 1/10 Scale Figure
Superman stands 7 ½ Inch tall on his included magnetic display base. He stands in a classic heroic pose, feet spread apart and his fists held tensely at his sides. Seems relaxed and his body is not overly muscled. As we all know, Jim Lee redesigned Superman’s costume for the New 52. Superman overall look is still the same, but the most significant missed is the outside underwear. You don’t see the brief any more. It has been replaced by a high-tech belt.
The statue has magnets in its feet. It comes with a “Justice League” logo base. Since it is a statue, you don’t have to worry about adjusting to the best pose-able pose to make sure it stands.
It’s one shiny Superman! They made the metallic blue and red, as well as the yellow on his “S” emblem fits perfectly.
Everything about Kotobukiya’s Superman seems perfect except for his face. It has a very boyish look and I find it too Japanese looking. Maybe due to made in Japan The cape is also too short for me.
What do you think? The price is quite reasonable.
List Price: $ 39.99
