A Closer Look at the Kotobukiya Iron Man Marvel Now ARTFX+ StatueNovember 28, 2015
Drawing inspiration from the comic book pages rather than the riotously popular cinematic universe, the Kotobukiya Iron Man Marvel Now ARTFX+ Statue is a masterfully crafted depiction of the metal-suited hero that makes for a worthy addition to every superhero collectors personal Hall of Armor.
Based on the conceptual styling of famed artist, Adi Granov, Kotobukiyas Iron Man Marvel Now ARTFX+ Statue faithfully captures the armored Avengers updated look as seen throughout the pages of the Marvel Now! comic book series. A showcase of the handiwork of renowned superhero figure sculptor, Junnosuke Abe (RESTORE), the tenth scale figure stands 8.25 tall and features the black and metallic gold contours and distinctive repulsor array of Tony Starks re-imagined power armor. For collectors with a preference for Iron Man’s classic color scheme, Kotobukiya has seen fit to offer a palette-swapped variant of the Marvel Now armor with a red and gold exterior as well.
While Kotobukiyas Iron Man Marvel Now ARTFX+ Statue is stable enough to stand freely without support, the figure is built with magnets in the soles of the boots that adhere to the accompanying square black base, which enables secure display without any added holes or pegs.
Although import prices vary, the Kotobukiya Iron Man Marvel Now ARTFX+ Statue released earlier in the year at the manufacturers suggested retail price of $54.99 USD.
