Kotobukiya Colossus

Kotobukiya make some very cool models and highly crafted pieces of art for their Comic and Anime fan. In my case I have been a huge fan of Colossus from the X-Men for a very long time. I always thought that he was nearly invincible with his Adamantium Skin and size, I always felt that they didn’t give him a big enough role in the movies, not just the core X-Men team, they have others to choose from who can make X-Men an even darker story.

Well after seeing a few models from Colossus over the years, this was the perfect one, slightly more on the modern design of Colossus from the more recent X-Men and his body and head are proportionate. I love the expression on his face, makes him look even more Bad Ass. The perfect spot on my shelf I see him when ever I walk into my office. At this rate I’m going to need a museum for all these models.

IRON MAN 2 Mark VI Statue – Kotobukiya

I have was gifted the original Kotobukiya Iron Man Statue last year, and its probably one of my favorite models that I currently own. I honestly look at that Iron Man consistently, wondering what it would take to make a machine such as this, and it looks so realistic and such a fantastic model.

Now they have come up with the new design of the new Iron Man, and it looks good, they look fantastic together. Now the movie comes out in May of 2010 and this model from Kotobukiya comes out in September of 2010. You can see the developments in the suit, now to see what this equates to as weaponery and suit strength in the movie. I hope that Kotobukiya comes out with a War Machine model that can go with these beautiful models as well.

Iron Man – Kotobukiya Statue

Every once in a while you find the right piece that you really don’t expect, and this came out of no where. I received the Kotobukiay Iron Man Statue for my birthday a few months back and I have had the hardest time trying to figure out where to put this amazing statue, I can’t get enough of it but I didn’t want to ruin it. I kept on trying to figure out the perfect location for it, and simply I found the perfect spot in my home theater area.

I placed Iron Man on the left front speaker, and I didn’t know until I unboxed him that there are is a switch to see the lights of the eyes and the chest plate. Its such a cool statue, I keep thinking if only I had the real life suit that this would be cooler. Its a perfect 13 inches, with a few bumps and bruises to resemble the real suit and the quality of the Kotobukiya statue is honestly amazing, every time a friend walks in I ask them what they think, the usual reaction is that its cool but when I switch on the light of the suit, there eyes pop out. I am one happy movie goer, now to only work on the getting a fully functional suit.
