The Age of Apocalypse was the last major comic book event I followed back in 1995. It introduced new characters and interesting variations of existing X-MEN and other mutants. In addition, it spawned its own toyline and was a nice change of pace after the events of Fatal Attraction. Now 27 years later, the X-MEN of an alternate timeline are back with the help of Iron Studios.
Three new statues were announced this week, paying tribute to the Age of Apocalypse designs of Storm, Rogue, and Wolverine (Weapon X). These collectibles are part of the BDS Art Scale 1/10 series and will launch during the second quarter of next year. Each one is priced at $159.99 but can be pre-ordered with just a small downpayment. Check them out below!
Floating over a pedestal that emulates the throne of her most feared enemy, in an alternate reality, the young mutant with absorption powers and leader of the X-Men uses her mutant abilities next to her husband Magneto and her allies to challenge the tyrant En Sabah Nur, known better as Apocalypse, against his genocidal reign. Iron Studios bring the statue “Rogue BDS – X-Men: Age of Apocalypse – Art Scale 1/10”, inspired by Marvel’s audacious comics saga from the 1990s.
With translucent energy flames spawning from her hands, the mutant with white hair and eyes praised as a deity by her people in the African continent opens her arms while she is raised by a vortex of wind current at her feet that she controls. Wearing a bicolor black and white habit with a flavescent sash on her waist, floating over a pedestal made by rustic mechanic elements, Iron Studios bring the statue “Storm BDS – X-Men: Age of Apocalypse – Art Scale 1/10”, with the version of the Goddess of the Winds inspired by Marvel’s audacious comics saga from the 1990s.
Climbing a technological pedestal filled with steel conduits and electronic components, the fierce Canadian mutant with his fury expressed on his face, unsheathes his right fist’s claws coated with the indestructible metal Adamantium (a fictional alloy), and brings his biggest scar in his left fist, of the hand that he lost in combat. Using a red and blue variant of his original costume, with his even longer, peculiar, and messy hair like a feline mane, in this other reality he takes upon his original codename as a definitive one. Iron Studios bring the statue “Weapon X – BDS – X-Men: Age of Apocalypse – Art Scale 1/10”, with the version of the hero Wolverine inspired by Marvel’s audacious comics saga from the 1990s.
OK, the Green Goblin was part of the AoA storyline, but the statue was recently announced for pre-order. So, we’re going to cover it. This statue features Norman Osborn’s alter ego as he appeared in Spider-Man: No Way Home. The 12.6″ tall figure shows the Goblin in flight with a pumpkin bomb in hand. The statue can be displayed with either Norman’s exposed face or helmeted.
The Green Goblin is priced at $199 but can be pre-ordered now for $40 down. The expected release date is during the second quarter of 2023.
Flying in the night sky of New York with his Goblin Glider over Liberty Island, with an insane laugh the fearsome villain passes through, destroying the metallic structure of a scaffold used in the restoration of the symbolic statue renamed Liberty Avenger. Wearing a metallic green battle suit technologically advanced that enhances his strength and endurance, covered by a ragged purple hoodie, previously used to hide his armor, as a spectrum created on Halloween, he prepares himself to throw one of his Pumpkin Bombs. Inspired by his striking appearance in the movie “Spider-Man: No Way Home”, Iron Studios bring the statue “Green Goblin BDS – Spider-Man: No Way Home – Art Scale 1/10”, with Spider-Man’s legendary archenemy masterfully played again by Willem Dafoe in the MCU.
