Kotobukiya Makes Magnet Great Again With This Fine Arts Statue

The man who would see all mankind bow before mutants is represented his all his terrifying glory thanks to Kotobukiya‘s new statue. Magneto, the decades-old foe of Xavier’s X-MEN, stands at almost 16″ tall and is cast in resin. He welcomes you to die.
The statue is currently available for pre-order at the Big Bad Toy Store. Magnus will run you $379.99 and will ship in May 2022.


The latest addition to the revamped Fine Art Statue line is the X-Men villain and master of magnetic fields, Magneto. Standing over 40cm tall, this impressive piece is Kotobukiya’s second rendition of Magneto in statue form.

When I was a kid, Magneto was the most fearsome villain in Marvel Comics. Sure, Doom was probably the better overall baddie, but the Master of Magnetism was genocidal. Like many great bad guys, Magneto was complex. A Holocaust survivor, Magneto knew first had the evil that lay in mankind and how easily they could be swayed to turn against others they saw as “different.”
He has seen several changes over the years, even being somewhat redeemed after nearly being crippled during the Fatal Attractions storyline. However, I’ll always prefer the classic ’80s and ’90s Magneto.

I think Sir Ian McKellen did a pretty good job in the first two films portraying the character. There was some humanity in him, though I doubt the mutant would like that term. However, it is unfortunate that the X-MEN films’ timelines got all messy and retconned. I think it diminished the character’s importance as an advisory to Xavier and his team.
How about you, true believer? What version of the Evil Mutant leader is your favorite? Who would you cast as the next Magneto in the inevitable MCU reboot? Let us know in the comments.
