Kotobukiya was one of the largest companies with a presence at the Anaheim Comic Con, and to commemorate the event they brought some never before seen prototypes. On hand was a display case containing not one but two new items.
First up was the Kotobukiya Collection X-Men Danger Room Sessions Wolverine Fine Art Statue. The 9 inch tall statue recreates the feral mutant in action against the simulated training program of the Danger Room. Dressed in his traditional X-Men blue and yellow costume, Wolverine has his claws bared and ready for anything. Logan comes with two heads (costumed and bare headed), and stands on a unique Danger Room effect base that will light up with LEDs!
The other new item on display was the amazing Iron Man 2 War Machine statue! The perfect companion to the upcoming Iron Man statues, James Rhodes' silver and black armor looks awesome with its heavy armor and amazing array of weapons. Both forearms are equipped with projectile weapons, while over its left shoulder points a heavy-duty gatling cannon. The pose really shows off the armament, and the final version will have a light-up LED base just like Iron Man's.
Look for both of these products later this year from Kotobukiya! Check out our image gallery below for more images of these two new Marvel items.
