Kotobukiya launches ARTFX+ Justice League with Superman

9:00 PM on 07.10.2012 // Scarecroodle

Superman is arguably the most iconic superhero of all time. He's also had a fairly consistent outfit all these years, subsequently making the rare shake-up even more notable. Superman's outfit in DC Comics' "New 52" re-launch got rid of the red boxers worn outside his pants and, honestly, I'm kind of digging the change. And I might not be alone, since Kotobukiya has chosen Superman and his new design to be the first statue in their ARTFX+ Justice League series.

Standing 7.5-inches tall, Kotobukiya's new Superman statue looks awesome. The costume features a neat, glossy metallic paint scheme which helps the colors really shine. The pose is simultaneously neutral yet also mildly dynamic with that slightly upraised clenched fist. And the headsculpt is, well, neat.

That said, some feel that he looks a little too young to be the Man of Steel, claiming that he looks more like Superboy than Superman. I can see where they're coming from, especially since the body-type is fairly slender. I still feel that this is an excellent design and the start of a great series.

That's right, I said series. Kotobukiya has revealed that there will be a new Justice League member coming out each month. Tune in tomorrow when I discuss Green Lantern.
