DC Comics’ “New 52” is nearly one year old and already it’s made a huge impact on the medium. With 52 re-launched titles the event attracted new readers , the new storylines also brought new looks and costumes to familiar characters, and Kotobukiya is celebrating those designs in a new series of ARTFX+ Statues starting with none other than the Man of Steel himself, SUPERMAN! Coming hot on the heels of Superman is fellow Leaguer and Earth’s first member of the intergalactic police force, GREEN LANTERN!
Superman stands in a classic heroic pose, his feet spread apart and his fists held tensely at his sides. The intense look on his face captures the Kryptonian’s focus and drive, while his intricately sculpted muscles show you that he has the power to back it up. Superman’s resplendent red and blue New 52 costume is accurate down to the last detail with its iconic red on yellow “S” emblem, textured suit, technological belt and boots, and of course his long cape.
Sculpted by Goutaro Takeuchi (Atlier Bamboo), the Man of Steel stands 7 ½ inches tall (in the ARTFX+ 1/10th scale) on his included magnetic display base. Superman will be joined by his fellow Justice League members with a new release coming each month, so get them all and display your own superhero team!
Following Superman’s lead, Green Lantern stands in a heroic pose that’s perfect for a lineup of Earth’s most powerful protectors. The cocky Justice Leaguer stands with his feet apart and arms at his sides, with his right fist raised and ready to unleash his ring’s energy. Kotobukiya’s excellent craftsmanship can be seen in the intricate details of Green Lantern’s ring-generated New 52-style suit including the shoulder pad-like armor and of course the logo on his chest. Jordan’s green mask is perfect, as is his wind-blown brown hair.
Green Lantern stands nearly 7 ½ inches tall (in the ARTFX+ 1/10th scale) and was sculpted by master artist Atelier Bamboo. Magnets in his feet make him perfectly stable on his included display base, and he’ll look perfect on your shelf next to the rest of the Justice League.
Both are expected to be released in early January of 2013 at a price of $39.99. (TM & © DC Comics. (s12)
