Punch Brothers…
We just received a communique from collectible figure artisans Kotobukiya unveiling their spectacular Dawn of Justice tableau with DC Comics icons Superman and Batman locked in combat. The ARTFX+ creation, scheduled for May 2016 release, is actually two individual 1/10 scale statues that fit together at the base to form the battle scene.

The film accurate sculpture gives us a nice insight into the details of the movie’s costumes. Particularly Batman’s “tank suit.” It also makes a great complimentary piece to the equally impressive Hulk versus Hulk Buster Iron Man displayed at last year’s Toy Fair, then anticipating Marvel Studios’ Avengers 2.

Oh, You Pretty Things…
In addition to Kotobukiya’s expansive anime offerings the company has a unique line of bishoujo sculpts that portray famous film and comic characters in the guise of Japanese pop culture “pretty girls.” Along with sexy renditions of Star Wars, Marvel and DC properties, they’ve even found a way to glam up Friday the Thirteenth‘s Jason Voorhees and Nightmare on Elm Street‘s Freddy Krueger.
