Kotobukiya has announced three new ArtFX statues, one from DC Comics and two from Disney’s Star Wars shows.
When DC wanted to ditch Batman’s campy upbeat look of the ’50s and ’60s, he got a bit of a makeover in the 1970s. The Bronze Age Batman was a step in the right direction. Bats was now less smiley, and the blue/gray/yellow batsuit became the standard for decades. Kotobukiya captured the look perfectly in this new ArtFX 1:6 scale statue. The figure is made of PVC and is expected to be released in May 2023. Batman can be pre-ordered now through the Big Bad Toy Store for $159.99.
This original scene captures Batman inside the Batcave before going into action; a pose worthy of a commemorative statue to celebrate his legacy. The base features a metal plate decorated with Batman’s chest logo that the statue attaches to with embedded magnets. It is a simple feature that allows for a high level of freedom.
We have new Obi-Wan Kenobi and Ahsoka Tano statues on the Lucasfilm front. Both are based on the characters’ appearance in the Disney+ series. Unlike the Batman statue, these two Jedis are on different scales. Ahsoka is 1:10 scale, while Old Ben is 1:7 scale. Both are made from PVC.
Masterfully rendered in 1/7 scale, the ARTFX Obi-Wan Kenobi perfectly captures the renewed resolve of the Jedi™ master as he prepares to face his past. With lightsaber ignited and the tails of his robe and tunic flowing with the Force, every exacting detail of this sculpt has been referenced directly from the Lucasfilm production archives.

Striking a dynamic pose with her two lightsabers, this 1/10 scale figure remains faithful to the series. She can be displayed flexibly due to the magnets in her feet that stick to the steel plate in the square base.
