DC Collectibles Unveils Limited Jiro Kuwata Batman Statue

Jiro Kuwata is a superhero legend in Japan. He’s the artist behind the country’s first costumed superhero 8 Man created in the 1960s. 8 Man remained a cultural touchstone in Japan, but after Kawata’s run he moved on to another major work: DC Comic’s Batman. Known as Bat-Manga, Kuwata’s crisp artwork and stories of the caped crusader remained limited to Japan for decades and didn’t appear stateside until 2008.

A “Batman: Black & White” statue based on Kuwata’s character design, complete with stylized cape, and manga-style shading will go on sale in January 2019, and pre-orders will open on May 22. 

Only 5,000 individually numbered 1/10-scale statues will be produced and each will retail for $80.

Kotobukiya Announces DC Comics The Joker Killing Joke 2nd Edition ARTFX Statue

1

Kotobukiya has posted photos and details for an updated version of an older statue. They have refined their DC Comics The Joker – Killing Joke for an all new Second Edition ARTFX Statue. The statue is based off the iconic cover by Brian Bolland. It will include a Red Hood themed statue base as well. Here are more details from Koto:

A Kotobukiya Japanese import! Kotobukiya returns to the DC Universe ARTFX Statue series with a new edition of a previously released classic. The Clown Prince of Crime is back in an updated (and streamlined) new version with The Joker -Killing Joke- 2nd Edition! A 1988 graphic novel by Alan Moore and drawn by Brian Bolland, The Killing Joke is a story about Joker and how he came to be. Other than an interesting origin story for him, the book also features one of the most famous scenes in the history of comics: Joker shooting Barbara Gordon (which would in turn lead to her becoming the hero Oracle). Almost as famous as its contents is Killing Joke’s iconic cover image, and this 2nd Edition statue replicates it with new features and a simplified presentation.

Featuring a portrait inspired by the graphic novel cover art coupled with an original pose by Kotobukiya, this statue brings the maniacal clown to life that’s sure to please any DC Comics reader. In this new edition Joker stands on the helmet and cape of the original Red Hood, smiling his huge toothy grin as he snaps a photo on his old school film camera. The sadistic villain’s costume is incredibly detailed, showing off every seam, cuff, button, crease, and more on his purple three piece suit and trench coat. His outfit is even topped off by authentic studded spats, fedora, iconic white gloves, and lapel-pinned flower. The Joker’s elongated white painted face leaps right off of the graphic novel cover with its deep laugh lines, left eye squeezed shut, and unruly green hair peeking out from under his hat. This 2nd Edition does not include the original light-up gimmick, but Joker fans will love the subtle nod to one the villain’s alter ego’s literally at his feet!

The Joker -Killing Joke- 2nd Edition stands 12 inches tall (1/6th scale) on his special updated display base featuring the Red Hood costume. The Joker is an incredible statue capturing one of the most famous graphic novels of all time, and he’ll look great on display or alongside other DC Comics-inspired statues from Kotobukiya like the Batman Black Costume version.

Look for the statue to be released in June. You can pre-order it HERE for $99.99.

Disney Commemorates Stan Lee’s 75 Years at Marvel

1

The Chairman of The Walt Disney Company, Bob Iger, recently presented Stan “The Man” Lee with a one-of-a-kind bronze statue to commemorate the legendary comic book writer’s 75-year career at Marvel.

The bronze features Spider-Man, one of Lee’s most famous co-creations (in collaboration with Steve Ditko), alongside Mickey Mouse, a nod to Marvel’s acquisition by Disney in 2009.

Since Disney’s purchase of Marvel, the two entities have found plenty of shared box-office success with record-setting films like “The Avengers,” “Iron Man 3” and “Captain America: Civil War.” Many of the characters in these Marvel Studios’ films were co-created by Lee, including Iron Man, Thor, the Hulk and Doctor Strange.

Stan Lee has worked in the comics industry since he was a teenager, where he got his start as an assistant at Timely Comics in 1939. He is primarily known for his foundational work at Marvel, alongside artists Jacky Kirby and Steve Ditko. With these collaborators, he had a hand in creating the X-Men, Fantastic Four and other staples of Marvel’s IP stable. For his achievements, he received a National Medal of Arts in 2008, and was inducted into both the Will Eisner Award Hall of Fame in 1994 and the Jack Kirby Hall of Fame in 1995.

Marvel Unveils New Details On Tribute Statue Celebrating 75 Years of Captain America

1

Since his creation in 1941 by Jack Kirby and Joe Simon, Captain America has gone through numerous evolutions, but  always remains as one of the world’s most influential and inspiring Super Heroes. Kicking off a new phase of the year-long celebration of 75 years of Captain America, Marvel Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media have unveiled a slate of heroic activations taking place at San Diego Comic-Con and beyond to honor the First Avenger, along with a wide range of celebratory merchandise.

Headlining the Captain America 75th anniversary celebration, Marvel has collaborated with high-end collectibles maker Comicave Studios to create a one-of-a-kind Captain America statue that will be displayed at the Marvel booth #2329 at Comic-Con International on July 20. Comicave Studios worked closely with Marvel artists in New York and a Brooklyn-based sculptor to design the bronze tribute, standing at over 13 feet and weighing 1 ton. The statue will continue to stand tall on the show floor throughout San Diego Comic-Con for photo ops with fans, and 1/12-scale bronze replicas of the statue will be available for purchase. Plus, a custom comic book was created by Marvel Publishing writers and artists to integrate the statue into new storytelling. This one-of-a-kind comic will be available in limited quantities at San Diego Comic-Con and future Captain America events.

Following SDCC, the commemorative statue will journey via truck across the country to Brooklyn, NY – the hometown of Steve Rogers – for a limited engagement in Brooklyn’s Prospect Park. Fans can follow the truck along its cross-country route through photos on social media sites like Marvel and StyledByMarvel Instagram. The statue will be on display in the Children’s Corner of Prospect Park for a two-week temporary installation, kicking off with a dedication ceremony and community event on August 10th from 1-3pm. In the evening, a special viewing of the recent blockbuster film, Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War, will take place in Prospect Park as part of the culmination of the Brooklyn Borough President Eric L. Adams’ “A Summer Movie Under the Stars” program, which will be airing four Captain America-focused movies every Wednesday from July 20th to August 10th.

“To the rest of America and the world, he’s Captain America; to us, he’ll always be Steve Rogers, ‘just a kid from Brooklyn,’” said Borough President Adams. “Brooklyn is proud to be the base of celebrations for Cap’s 75th anniversary, which will be capped by a larger-than-life statue traveling around our borough — befitting of this larger-than-life character. Prospect Park is the place to be this summer to enjoy the Captain America!”

After the half-month stop in Prospect Park, the Captain America statue will move to the plaza outside Barclays Center on Atlantic and Flatbush Avenues for September, during which several Marvel fan activations take place. From late October through the remainder of the year, the statue will adorn the soon-to-be-opened Bed Bath & Beyond in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. Fans of all ages will enjoy a specially re-designed statue base, for heightened interactivity and photo opportunities with Captain America, as well as see and shop for a variety of unique Marvel items, including limited quantities of scaled replicas of the bronze statue itself.

“Since 1941 Captain America has remained one of the most influential Super Heroes in comic book history,” said Paul Gitter, senior vice president, licensing, Marvel at Disney Consumer Products. “He has evolved as a character throughout the years, but remains constant as a moral compass within the Marvel Universe and leader of the Avengers. The tribute statue and other activations are the perfect way to honor 75 years of this iconic Super Hero and to celebrate the borough of Brooklyn in New York City.”

Also joining the 75th celebration at San Diego Comic-Con are Marvel’s leading merchandise partners including Hasbro, Funko, and Jakks Pacific who will be commemorating “Cap” through new collectibles. As previously announced, Comicave Studios will also be offering different scales of replicas of the bronze statue itself at San Diego Comic-Con.  Additional licensees including Mad Engine, Mighty Fine, Freeze, C-Life, Her Universe, What’s Your Passion, Nick Graham, Café Press, Jay Franco, Kiddesigns, HJC Helmets and more will all feature new Captain America merchandise at major retailers this Fall.  These collections will highlight Captain America’s iconic shield and cover categories including apparel and accessories for kids, women and men, home goods, electronics, and toys. There will even be new Brooklyn-themed artwork available for a range of apparel and accessories.

Kotobukiya Announces The Amazing Spider-Man ARTFX+ Statue

A Kotobukiya Japanese import! Kotobukiya’s Marvel Comics ARTFX+ Statues have brought you Earth’s Mightiest Heroes in the Avengers as well as the heroic mutants of the X-Men.  Now they’re kicking off an all-new series of high quality 1/10th scale ARTFX+ figures based on characters in the world of everyone’s favorite web-slinger, so of course they’re starting with The Amazing Spider-Man himself! In 1962 Stan Lee created the character of Spider-Man, the teen-aged Peter Parker granted extraordinary powers by the bite of a radioactive spider. With great power comes great responsibility, and Spider-Man would use that power to save lives and protect the innocent. The innovative superhero has gone on to become one of the most popular and famous characters of all time, appearing in hundreds of comic books, television shows, and a huge comic book blockbuster film franchise.

The Amazing Spider-Man is always in the middle of the action, and this fantastic ARTFX+ presentation captures him in one of his most iconic poses. The heroic Peter Parker crouches low to the ground, ready to spring up at a moment’s notice. His left hand is stretched behind him for balance while his right hand is thrust forward in the classic web-shooting pose.  Spider-Man wears his traditional red and blue costume, recreated here with painstaking sculpted detail in the fabric’s texture, black webbing design, spider emblem on his chest, and the superhero’s lean muscled physique. Sculpted by the same master artist who did the Marvel Now! Avengers and X-Men series, Junnosuke Abe, the Amazing Spider-Man is just under 3 ½ inches tall (in the ARTFX+ 1/10th scale) while crouched, and he too has magnets in his feet to provide perfect stability on his included display base. Catch Spider-Man before he swings away, and watch out for more Spidey-related ARTFX+ Statues coming from Kotobukiya soon!

Pre-order HERE for $59.99, available November 2016.
