Kotobukiya

Post by Wednesday Toys on Sun May 12, 2013 5:05 am

Kotobukiya have released images of the shiny new Mech the Muv-Luv Alternative 1/144 YF-23 Black Widow II. I'm not sold on the name, but the robot does look GOOD! And it's pre-painted too!

Those wonderful people at Kotobukya are showing off another Muv-Luv Alternative over at Kotobukiya's Facebook. This is a serious-looking blue mech with a riot shield! He's very neat.

Kotobukiya have released a couple of awesome toy images recently.

The animated movie Ghost In The Shell was way ahead of its time. Kotobukiya are releasing an awesome helicopter from the anime that is just bristling with weaponry!


AND Kotobukiya have released images of a Deathstroke ARTFX statue based on the New 52 re-boot. He's 1/6th scale, so around 12" (30cm) tall.

Kotobukiya are importing this cute little robot - he's a deformed, or "d-style" robot, with a big head and but child-like proportions. His name is Raijin-Oh and he's made of 130 pieces! Amazing. He has a deluxe form, or can separate to become a robot with a lion mount and a bird.

Kotobukiya have put up a great picture of their up-coming Superman: For Tomorrow ARTFx statue on their facebook page. He's looking truly heroic there, next to batman.



This is a crazy mecha - Anubis - Zone of Enders. He looks absolutely amazing, bringing cool robot aesthetics to the Egyptian god. Made up of 500 individual pieces!

Kotobukiya have pictures of the latest lovely ARTFX+ statue - Shazam! 3 I don't mind the New 52 look of Shazam, I think that his new cape and clothes bespeak more of his arcane origins than his previous uniform did.


Another awesomely-looking kick ass mech from the ill-named Muv-Luv - Alternative Total Eclipse Su-47 Berkut. Love the colour scheme, and the knife boots!

In other robot toy news my friends over at Mecha Zone have posted pictures of this cool Kotobukiya offering - a mecha, or perhaps large body armour that changes into a motorbike! Looks like an updated motorbike from Robotech to my sensibilities, and I like what they've come up with!

Kotobukiya are revealing a new Ghost In The Shell tank - HAW 206! It's like a scorpio-tank-bot!

After playing DC Universe Online, Black Adam has become one of my favourite villains.  He's basically an evil version of Shazam, and he can go toe-to-toe with Superman!
Kotobukiya are showing off pictures of the New 52 Artfx+ Statue, and he looks suitably despotic!

Kotobukiya are showing off yet another great ARTFX statue - this fellow is from the anime series TriGun - his name is Vash 'The Stampede', and he's been captured here in a great action stance!

Kotobukiya are unveiling two mechs.  This is Frame Arms YSX-24D/NE Zelfikar, and it's chock-full of detail!  It comes with an energy sword and some sort of shield that looks like it acts as a grapple to boot.  It also features a lot of swap-out accessories.



The other cool robot recently shown by Kotobukiya is the Frame Arms RF-12 Wilber Nine plastic model.  This robot turns into a deadly motorbike!  It reminds me a lot of the old Robotech bikes that turned into armoured suits for their riders.  Very cool!

Kotobukiya have recently sent out a presser alerting people to cheap knock-offs of their Superman and Green Lantern ARTFX+ statues - don't be caught out!

There's just something to aesthetically appealing about a robot with a gun that is bigger than he is... and that's exactly what this Armored Core mech by Kotobukiya has done!

Meet the robot attached to this gun, Armored Core V UCR-10. How he even walks is beyond me, but he does look cool Smile




The other robot Kotobukiya have announced recently is the Frame Arms Baselard... I'm about as keen on 'Baselard' as I am for 'Muv-Luv', in terms of names... but fortunately this mecha looks awesome! There's something to be said for having two large cannons strapped to your shoulders, and it reminds me a little of the G1 Seekers, like Starscream, Thundercracker, and Skywarp.




Kotobukiya have announced two recent releases - the first is another of the dubiously named Muv-Luv mecha - EF-2000 Typhoon Wilfried Von Aichberger Ver. It looks suitably angular and hard core, and looks to even be wielding an axe as well as a sword! We need more robot axes...

Kotobukiya are up to their awesome mecha tricks with the amazing Tactical Surface Fighter, Shiranui Second Phase 3 Yuya Bridges Ki - from Muv-Luv Total Eclipse. It has a massive 230 pieces, and 30 points of articulation... and more weapons than you can poke a robopocalypse at!
