Random Glimpses of My Desktop (9)

This cold-cast porcelain Iron-Man figurine was specially created for the Kotobukiya Collections, commissioned by Marvel Studios in the Marvel Fine Art Series 2008. I loved the fine details.

From Craftmanship Kotobukiya

Inspired by the original promotional one-sheet for the film, the armored avenger stands tall as this 1/6th scale Fine Art Statue (approximately 13 inches tall). Stan Winston Studios fabricated the suit for the film based on designs by comic artist extraordinaire Adi Granov, and every detail of Iron Man’s Mark III armor has been faithfully replicated by the craftsmen at Kotobukiya. Working from reference provided by Marvel Studios, the level of mechanical detail is matched only by the personality conveyed by Iron Man’s heroic stance.

Manufactured in cold cast porcelain and coated with metallic paint, the Iron Man Fine Art Statue even features multiple LED lights: eyes, Repulsor Ray palms, and the Unibeam on his chest. The base is ornamented with a sculpted Iron Man film logo on a three-dimensional realization of his chest symbol, and painted in the Mark I color scheme. Each statue is individually numbered on the bottom of the base as part of a Limited Edition.

Sculpted by Kouei Matsumoto.
