You'd better believe every company with a Marvel Comics license is looking for a way to cash in on the coming of the Avengers movie this May 4th, so it should be no surprise that Kotobukiya would start showing their pretty, pretty plastics as soon as possible. Whether it be from their sexy Bishoujo statue line or their ARTFX statue line, they've got you covered. Here are two upcoming releases you won't want to miss...
AVENGERS MOVIE IRON MAN MARK VII ARTFX STATUE - New 3D sculpting includes more fine detailing than previous hand-sculpted releases for a more dynamic display. This dynamic pose catches Iron Man in action, firing his chest-mounted beam weapon with an LED light-up feature with three different modes: Off, Continuous On and triggered via the built-in motion detector. Iron Man's eyes also feature continuous LED lighting in both modes. This ARTFX statue in 1/6 scale stands nearly 16 inches tall including the diorama base. Release date: June 2012

BISHOUJO STATUE MARVEL BLACK WIDOW COVERT OPS VERSION - Entirely new sculpt by Masahiro Takahashi (based on a new illustration by Shunya Yamashita, famed Japanese illustrator) hints at Natasha Romanoff, AKA Black Widow's past with the inclusion a Daredevil mask on the base. This new release brings Black Widow to life in a larger 1/7 scale sculpt to match the current (and future) scale of the Bishoujo line. This dynamic pose captures Black Widow in action lending a sense of movement to the entire piece, and includes interchangeable parts to display with or without the weapon. Release date: July 2012
