Kotobukiya ArtFX+ New 52 Justice League Cyborg statue

Kotobukiya finally released their last statue from the core group of the New 52 Justice League this month, with the release of Cyborg! And it was definitely worth the wait! With the team setup together, they look simply outstanding!

The Cyborg statue stands just on 20.5cm (or over 8") in height, and is the tallest from the core group of seven. As with the others in the line, the paintwork is sensational, and has very little slop. The face sculpt is very nicely done, and blends the skin and metallic face cover neatly.

The metallic silver over the suit gorgeously reflect the light, and has subtle differences in the silver tone throughout. I also love the varying greys around the torso and thighs that give some variety to the suit.




The pose is simple, but matches perfectly the box artwork and the others in the team. Perhaps the only thing that I personally think they could've done better would be the feet. They seem a little too chunky, but this is only a minor quibble. The arm cannon is nicely detailed and sculpted, with beautifully done red accents that simulate bright lights.




The detailing on the rear is also sensational, with the jet pack looking sweet, and the red centrepoint being very well defined. The forearms and calves also look great with the detailing in the suit and colour variations.




Like the others, the statue looks incredible from pretty much all angles, and definitely has a lot of shelf presence due to its size and bulk compared to the others. It comes with the standard magnetic base and little magnets in the feet, so it stands firmly on its base.




I've mentioned before that I haven't really followed the DC Comics, but this new line of statues from Kotobukiya have definitely tweaked my interest now! They have done a sensational effort on all fronts with these statues - sculpting, detail, stands, poses, and especially the amazing paint application! I could not recommend these statues any higher - if you're remotely into comics, superheroes, movies, or just the geeky side of things, then you should definitely look into these!
