New 52 Superman
Clark Kent is the last surviving son of planet Krypton, sent to Earth to avoid its destruction. The combination of his ancestry and our planet’s yellow sun has given him incredible powers which he uses to defend humanity against its greatest threats. Superman stands in a classic heroic pose, his feet spread apart and his fists held tensely at his sides. The intense look on his face captures the Kryptonian’s focus and drive, while his intricately sculpted muscles show you that he has the power to back it up. Superman’s resplendent red and blue New 52 costume is accurate down to the last detail with its iconic red on yellow “S” emblem, textured suit, technological belt and boots, and of course his long cape.
The Man of Steel stands 7 ½ inches tall (in the ARTFX+ 1/10th scale) on his included magnetic display base. Superman will be joined by his fellow Justice League of America members too!
New 52 Batman
After witnessing the brutal murder of his parents, young Bruce Wayne was forever scarred and turned his angst and enormous fortune toward training and outfitting himself as Gotham City’s premiere vigilante. In DC Comics’ relaunched New 52 continuity Batman joins forces with Superman, Green Lantern, and the rest to oppose Darkseid’s invasion of Earth as the Justice League! Joining his fellow Leaguers in their impressive lineup, Batman stands at the ready, no doubt contemplating multiple scenarios in his head. Wayne’s first appearance in the ARTFX+ lineup captures his New 52 look by Jim Lee perfectly, with his current subtly-armored Batsuit. The details on Batman are exceptional from the intricate lines on his costume to the many tiny pouches on his utility belt, wicked bladed gauntlets, long flowing cape, and more. Kotobukiya’s unique take on this Batman features a metallic sheen to his gray costume that looks fantastic with the darker black of the cape, cowl, chest emblem, gloves, and boots, while of course the belt is its traditional bright yellow. Standing nearly 8 inches tall (in the ARTFX+ 1/10th scale), Batman was sculpted by master artist Goutaro Takeuchi (Atelier Bamboo). Like the other Justice League members Wayne has magnets in his feet for perfect stability on the included base, and he’ll look great displayed on your shelf by himself or alongside his teammates.
New 52 Green Lantern
Following Superman’s lead, Green Lantern stands in a heroic pose that’s perfect for a lineup of Earth’s most powerful protectors. The cocky Justice Leaguer stands with his feet apart and arms at his sides, with his right fist raised and ready to unleash his ring’s energy. Kotobukiya’s excellent craftsmanship can be seen in the intricate details of Green Lantern’s ring-generated New 52-style suit including the shoulder pad-like armor and of course the logo on his chest. Jordan’s green mask is perfect, as is his wind-blown brown hair.
Green Lantern stands nearly 7 ½ inches tall (in the ARTFX+ 1/10th scale) and was sculpted by master artist Atelier Bamboo. Magnets in his feet make him perfectly stable on his included display base, and he’ll look perfect on your shelf next to the rest of the Justice League!
New 52 Flash
Barry Allen was a mild-mannered forensic scientist (who was perpetually late) working late at night in his lab when a bolt of lightning changed his life forever. The electricity and chemicals combined mysteriously to imbue Allen with unbelievable speed and thus the Flash was born!
Not content merely to stand at attention like his fellow Justice Leaguers Superman and Green Lantern, the Flash can’t stay still for a moment. Ready to speed off to fight crime or supervillains with a wide-legged stance, Allen cracks his knuckles in anticipation. The Scarlet Speedster’s New 52 costume maintains the character’s traditional bright red and yellow color scheme but updates it with a bold new lightning bolt logo and intricate energy lines crackling all over his suit. The Flash’s excellent sculpt even includes the new technological details of his costume like the reinforced boots.
Standing 7 ½ inches tall (in the ARTFX+ 1/10th scale), the Flash was sculpted by master artist Atelier Bamboo. Magnets in his feet make him perfectly stable on his included display base, and he’ll look great on your shelf next to the rest of the Justice League including the Wonder Woman!
New 52 Wonder Woman
Born of Zeus and Hippolyta, Diana was a princess on the paradise island of Themyscira before venturing out into the wider world of humanity. Her first major appearance (in the relaunched New 52 continuity) was the great battle against Darkseid’s Parademons in which she teamed up with other heroes to form the Justice League. The magnificent Wonder Woman stands poised with a warrior’s strength and a god’s grace. Always ready for battle, Diana wears her iconic costume as reinterpreted by Jim Lee in the New 52. Along with her stars and stripes bodice she rocks full pants and tall boots. Wonder Woman’s left hand is balled into a fist at her waist, always near the short sword at her back, while her right hand rests over her Lasso of Truth. Of course, no Wonder Woman would be complete without her bracelets and tiara! The Amazon princess features intricate sculpted details in her unique outfit from the stars and eagle design on her top to the subtle armor and paneling on her pants and the creases in her boots. Diana’s face captures the character’s austere beauty and fierce determination. Standing 7 ½ inches tall (in the ARTFX+ 1/10th scale), Wonder Woman was sculpted by master artist Atelier Bamboo. She has magnets in her feet for perfect stability on her included display base (with Justice League logo), and naturally she’ll look great on your shelf next to the rest of her powerful allies. Stay tuned for the final member of the team, Cyborg!
New 52 Aquaman
A former ruler of Atlantis who seeks to defend the world both above and below the waves, Arthur Curry is a powerful warrior and leader. While it has been revealed that he has had previous adventures with other teams, Aquaman’s first major public appearance in the relaunched New 52 continuity was in the pages of Justice League, joining the other heroes against Darkseid and his forces. The current incarnation of Aquaman makes the character larger than life, with strength, intelligence, and powers that make him a valued member of the Justice League. Arthur appears here in the ARTFX+ lineup with a fantastic representation of those heroic ideals, standing with all of the quiet grace of an otherworldly ruler. Aquaman’s iconic costume is captured with every fine detail from the intricate overlapping scales of his metallic orange armor to the creases and pointed fins on his green pants and gloves. The muscular aquatic hero holds his mighty trident in his right hand, calmly staring down the threats arrayed before him from under his wavy blonde hair. Standing nearly 8 inches tall (in the ARTFX+ 1/10th scale), Aquaman was sculpted by master artist Goutaro Takeuchi (Atelier Bamboo). Like the other Justice League members Aquaman has magnets in his feet for perfect stability on the included display base, and he’ll look great displayed on your shelf by himself or alongside his teammates.
New 52 Cyborg
Victor Stone was a student athlete who was caught in an explosion at S.T.A.R. Labs while visiting his father Silas. Seeing his son barely clinging to life, Silas performed a radical procedure implanting all sorts of alien and experimental technology into Victor. Reborn as part man and part machine, the young man finds himself defending the Earth against Darkseid alongside its greatest heroes as Cyborg! Accepting his newfound powers and the responsibilities they entail, Cyborg completes the elite lineup of the ARTFX+ Justice League. The technological hero is armored from head to toe with smooth panels interspersed with layered plates and segments. The sculpting detail on Cyborg is phenomenal, with intricate cybernetic mechanisms including the complex interlocking sections on his torso, heavy boots, and the powerful weapon on his right arm. Under all of that metal is still the heart and soul of a young man, and the only flesh and blood part of Victor that’s visible is three-quarters of his face and a sliver of his scalp. Cyborg stands nearly 8 ½ inches tall in the ARTFX+ 1/10th scale, and was sculpted by Atelier Bamboo (Goutaro Takeuchi). Like his allies, magnets in his feet give him excellent stability on the included Justice League logo display base.
