From Star Wars to Iron Man and a whole lot of cool Japanese stuff you’ve never heard of, check out the cool toys that will be draining your wallet in the next few months.

IRON MAN MOVIE MARK VI FINE ART STATUE
A KOTOBUKIYA Japanese import! In celebration of the first Iron Man film came two Fine Art Statues of the superhero’s armored suits: Iron Man Movie Mark II and Mark III. With the upcoming release of Iron Man 2 in May of 2010, Kotobukiya is proud to add the IRON MAN MOVIE MARK VI FINE ART STATUE to the Marvel Studios collection! Robert Downey Jr. will be reprising his role as Tony Stark with multiple new and improved armored suits, culminating in the ultimate Mark VI!

After surviving imprisonment by terrorists, billionaire industrialist Tony Stark created the Mark II armor suit. This was followed up soon after by the iconic red and gold Mark III suit used to battle Stane and his Iron Monger suit at the culmination of the first film. In the sequel the ever-productive Stark improves on his own designs yet again, creating not only additional Iron Man armors but also the famous War Machine! The absolute cutting edge in high-tech personal armor suit and man-sized weaponry, sleeker and more powerful than the previous versions, the Mark VI is visually impressive and will look great in your collection!

Iron Man stands nearly 14 inches tall (1/6th scale) atop an exclusive cylindrical Repulsor Transmitter base. Like the previous Iron Man ARTFX Statues, the Mark VI includes LED lights in the eyes, chest, fists, and base! In addition, the Mark VI has been further refined with a stronger LED light sequence, sharper edges on the base, and increased paint applications. The Mark VI constructed of high-quality cold cast porcelain, is individually numbered on the bottom of the base as part of a Limited Edition. An amazing statue on its own, the Mark VI is also a perfect companion piece to the armors from the first film!

MARVEL COMICS PRESENTS: THE KOTOBUKIYA COLLECTION
VILLAINS SERIES DOCTOR DOOM FINE ART STATUE

A KOTOBUKIYA Japanese import! Soon after the Fantastic Four hit the comic book scene in 1961, the superhero team came face to face with someone who would become one of the most iconic supervillains of all time. Power-mad, brilliant, and deadly, the dictator of Latveria would plague the heroes of the Marvel Universe to the present day. Born Victor von Doom, the ambitious master of both science and sorcery would come to be known as DOCTOR DOOM! Doom was injured by an explosion and forced to wear a mask over his face that would become his trademark along with heavy-duty armor and striking green clothing.

Dr. Doom is the second member of the Marvel Villains lineup of Fine Art Statues after the monstrous Venom. The Latverian is no less imposing, the picture of supreme supervillainy standing tall with crossed arms in his silver armor and green cape. Every detail has been painstakingly recreated, from the tiny rivets on the Doctor’s armor plates to the billowing folds of his clothing and hood. Of course, no Dr. Doom would be complete without his frightening mask, and Doom does not disappoint. In fact, Victor comes with two alternate (and both comic accurate) mask designs for a fantastic level of display options! The gleaming silver of Doom’s armor is offset by the deep green of his cape and hood, instantly recognizable on this new Fine Art Statue.

Dr. Doom tops out at a huge 15 inches tall (1/6 scale) in his regal pose, and will be a dominant force in your collection. Like the other statues in the Marvel Villains line, Doom stands upon a specially-designed circular base that lights up with interior LEDs. Sculpted by Eric Sosa, a member of Kotobukiya’s newly-formed “Kreative 3” Team, Dr. Doom is constructed of high-quality cold cast porcelain!
