CAPTAIN AMERICA: CIVIL WAR – CAPTAIN AMERICA & IRON MAN ARTFX+ STATUES by @koto_official
April 9, 2016

It’s hero vs. hero as Kotobukiya’s hit Marvel ARTFX+ series returns to the big screen with the upcoming mega-blockbuster Captain America: Civil War.  Two mighty characters headline the new collection starting with the star-spangled hero CAPTAIN AMERICA and a brand new armor suit, the IRON MAN MARK 46!

Fighting for freedom and his friends, Captain America (portrayed in the Marvel Cinematic Universe by Chris Evans) heads into battle fearlessly even against his one-time ally and fellow Avenger Iron Man.  The pinnacle of human ability thanks to the Super Soldier Serum created by Abraham Erskine, Captain America charges forward in his distinctive uniform, his shield leading the way and one fist cocked and ready to strike for justice.  Steve Rogers looks like he stepped right off the screen with an incredibly accurate sculpt capturing all of the intricate details of his patriotic red, white, and blue costume including the reinforced armor, straps, buckles, boots, gloves, and of course the “A” mask with chinstrap.  And while the colors on his costume are muted his iconic shield is bright with metallic paint and will immediately catch your eye in your Marvel collection.

Meanwhile, the latest creation of Tony Stark (portrayed as always by Robert Downey Jr.) is the Iron Man Mark 46.  It incorporates all of the brilliant inventor’s cutting edge innovations, though it’s sadly brought to a conflict with fellow superhero Captain America.  This brand new Iron Man suit is a perfect replica of the one you’ll see in the film, and it’s captured in a super cool battle pose as the Armored Avenger lunges forward and steadies his right arm for a repulsor ray blast!  A direct descendent of previous suits like the Mark 43, the Mark 46 suit is a sleek war machine with interlocking armor plates, tons of technological details, and of course the awesome chest-mounted arc reactor and trademark faceplate.  Of course, all of that is presented in gleaming red and gold with additional silver accents.

Sculpted by the same master artist responsible for many of the Marvel ARTFX+ statues, Junnosuke Abe (RESTORE), Captain America and Iron Man each stand just over 7 inches tall (in the ARTFX+ 1/10th scale).  Both heroes charge dynamically across a cracked and broken concrete battleground, and while each Captain America: Civil War ARTFX+ Statue is an incredible display piece on its own, they’re even better together as their bases join to create an amazing battle scene!

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
