Up Close with Kotobukiya’s Han Solo and Chewbacca ARTFX+ Statue SetDecember 27, 2014
For fans of the original Star Wars trilogy, the recently released Kotobukiya Han Solo and Chewbacca ARTFX+ Statue Set is likely to receive a particularly warm reception. Kotobukiyas craveable two-pack combines tenth scale depictions of the iconic Corellian pilot and his Wookiee first mate, faithfully crafted based on their appearance in Episode IV: A New Hope.
Officially dubbed a pre-painted model kit, Kotobukiyas Han Solo and Chewbacca ARTFX+ Statue Set requires a bit of minor assembly out of the box. Each figure is comprised of a handful of pieces that can fit together snugly in minutes without the need for tools or glue. Once assembled, Han and Chewbacca stand seven and eight inches tall, respectively.
As with similar sets in Kotobukiyas tenth scale ARTFX+ Star Wars line-up (like the especially desirable ), the Han Solo and Chewbacca figures boast sculpts and painted finishes with enough fidelity to appeal to even the most exacting Star Wars aficionados. Theres no articulation, but each of the dynamically posed figures can be displayed together or independently with their signature weapons at the ready. Magnets in the feet of each statue enable secure posing on the pair of included square black bases, though the figures are stable enough to stand freely on a flat surface.
For Star Wars buffs with a penchant for the original trilogys timelessly enchanting band of characters, Kotobukiyas Han Solo and Chewbacca ARTFX+ Statue Set will make for a welcome addition to the collection. The remarkable Kotobukiya import set is currently available at retail and carries with it a manufacturers suggested retail price of $119.99 USD.
