The sheer amount of new Star Wars toys and collectibles on display at NYCC 2015 is pretty staggering, and I likely won’t have an opportunity to dig in and really discuss them all until I get back from New York City. But what I did want to post photos of right away are the amazing new Kotobukiya Star Wars Force Awakens statues of ARTFX+ Captain Phasma and BB-8 (with R2-D2 and C-3PO)!
While the Kotobukiya Captain Phasma ARTFX+ statue on display at New York Comic Con 2015 is just painted silver, Koto has confirmed that the statue will be vac-metallized when it is actually released.
I believe that this will be the very first piece of Captain Phasma merch released that will actually be metallized–as it should be! Good work, Kotobukiya!
I think it’s a bit of a weird choice to pack an R2-D2 in the set with the Kotobukiya BB-8 statue. C-3PO at least has a new red arm–what makes Artoo different from his previous releases…?
The price is still TBD on the BB-8 set, but I can’t imagine it’ll cost the same or less than the original $79.99 set of the two droids. $89.99 seems more likely.
The Kotobukiya Captain Phasma statue is set for release in January 2016 (surprise!), with the Kotobukiya BB-8 with R2-D2 and C-3PO trio joining the fun in June 2016.
What do you think of this newest quartet of Kotobukiya ARTFX+ Force Awakens statues, Star Wars collectors? Will either of these items be on your 2016 Star Wars shopping list?
