Kotobukiya Star Wars Celebration Exclusives

Hot off the heels of the Triple Zero and BT-1 announcement comes the news that there will be even more Kotobukiya Star Wars Celebration Exclusives!  The new ARTFX+ statues announced for the convention are R2-X2, R4-M9, and R5-D4.

Star Wars Celebration 2017 Exclusive R2-X2 ARTFX+ Statue – $44.99
A Kotobukiya Japanese import! Under the service of Rebel pilot Theron Nett, R2-X2 was one of the many causalities during the Battle of Yavin when the X-wing it was assigned to was shot down in the trenches of the first Death Star.

R2-X2 stands 4 ½ inches tall in 1/10th ARTFX+ scale. Magnets in its feet provide the perfect stability on the included metal display bases. As with other Celebration exclusives this release also includes a special commemorative collector’s coin.

 

Star Wars Celebration 2017 Exclusive R4-M9 ARTFX+ Statue – $44.99
A Kotobukiya Japanese import! A green and white Astromech Droid under the service of the Galactic Empire, R4-M9 played an instrumental role in retrieving data from the Tantive IV’s computer banks in conjunction to the whereabouts of the stolen Death Star plans.

R4-M9 stands 4 1Ž2 inches tall in 1/10th ARTFX+ scale. Magnets in its feet provide the perfect stability on the included metal display bases. As with other Celebration exclusives this release also includes a special commemorative collector’s coin.

 

Star Wars Celebration 2017 Exclusive R5-D4 ARTFX+ Statue – $44.99
A Kotobukiya Japanese import! As fate (or sabotage) would have it R5-D4 was brought to a screeching stop just moments from reaching the Lars homestead. Due to a “bad” motivator this red and white Astromech Droid was retrieved by his Jawa handlers thus setting off a chain of events that would forever change the life of young moisture farmer Luke Skywalker.

R5-D4 stands 4 1Ž2 inches tall in 1/10th ARTFX+ scale. Magnets in its feet provide the perfect stability on the included metal display bases. As with other Celebration exclusives this release also includes a special commemorative collector’s coin.

Kotobukiya Introduces New Captain Phasma Statue!

Published

on

A KOTOBUKIYA Japanese import! One of the most visually distinctive troopers from the entire Star Wars saga is getting an upgrade from Kotobukiya, having appeared previously as an ARTFX+ Statue and now joining the elite ranks of the 1/6th scale ARTFX series. Debuting in Star Wars Episode VII: The ForceAwakens as a leader of First Order Stormtroopers and returning to punish the traitor FN-2187 in TheLast Jedi is the sleek and stylish CAPTAIN PHASMA! Played by actress Gwendoline Christie, the captain is a commanding officer in the First Order approximately three decades after the Battle of Endor and the death of Emperor Palpatine. She survived the destruction of Starkiller Base and continued to hunt down the Resistance under the ultimate command of General Hux and Supreme Leader Snoke, even supervising the attempted execution of Finn and Rose aboard the Star Destroyer Supremacy. Captain Phasma advances menacingly, ready to crush anyone in the way of the First Order! She stands in a powerful pose, stepping forward with her head down, one hand leading the way in front of her, and the other stretched out behind her holding a wicked spear. The Captain wears her iconic Chromium Stormtrooper armor, replicated here with a special metal plating polished to a mirror sheen. Her armor is intricately detailed and features a belt with utility items, panels and decorations, and even a matching silver blaster attached to her right thigh; meanwhile, a long black cape edged in red billows out behind her making her look even more intimidating! Captain Phasma towers 16 ½ inches (1/6 scale) perpetually striding forward on a beautiful black and red display base. Recruit this captain to a position of power in your Star Wars collection!

Available October 2018.

Kotobukiya Shows Off Upcoming Praetorian Guard 2-Pack

Published

on

A Kotobukiya Japanese import! Star Wars ARTFX+ Statues bring you all of the quality and detailing that you expect from an ARTFX release in a great smaller scale perfect for collecting! The series has already brought you amazing heroes, villains, and troopers from the classic trilogy and beyond, and now you can collect characters from Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi. Following up after the First Order Stormtrooper Executioner is a troop builder pack of Supreme Leader Snoke’s bodyguards in the ELITE PRAETORIAN GUARD 2-PACK! In the tradition of previous robed guardians like the Senate Guard and Emperor Palpatine’s Royal Guards, the Praetorians are highly skilled fighters trained to a superhuman level. These red armored guards focus specifically on melee combat, and they utilize various weapons which they brought to bear against Kylo Ren and Rey in the latest film. The ARTFX+ Praetorian Guards are clad in their ornate bright red armor and robes and come with a dazzling array of interchangeable parts for you to customize their look and your display. The two figures come with three types of helmeted heads, two styles of arms, and no fewer than six types of melee weapons (including different weapon configurations)!

ARTFX+ Statues are fun-to-assemble pre-painted snap-fit kits that can be put together easily in seconds without glue or modeling skill. The Elite Praetorian Guards stand over 7 inches tall (1/10th scale), and magnets in their feet provide perfect stability on the included metal display bases. Collect multiple sets to form your entire eight-man Guard force, and display them alongside other great The Last Jedi ARTFX+ Statues from Kotobukiya!

Available July 2018.

Kotobukiya Preview Night

San Diego Comic-Con 2017 is now in full swing!  Last night was preview night for the convention, and tons of new images have been released online.  Today we are starting with the Kotobukiya Preview Night images.  Thanks to the fine folks over at Figures.com, we have a load of new images of the Kotobukiya Star Wars display.

Again, just like the Hasbro booth, this is preview night, so not a lot of new being displayed here, but rather upcoming stuff.

We do get a good look at the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens First Order Snowtrooper and Flametrooper (which you can pre-order via the affiliate link here), as well as a new First Order FN-2199 statue.
