    SDCC 2016: Kotobukiya’s DC Villains ArtFX+ Gallery

    As a companion line to Kotobukiya’s New 52 ArtFX+, they announced a Villains Forever expansion a few years ago featuring, you guessed it, some of DC’s top villains. I was really expecting more heroes after the Justice League so it was a pleasant surprise, and the initial announcement had a pretty interesting mix of villains.

    They were all on display and sculpted at San Diego Comic Con: the Joker, Sinestro, Bizarro, Lex Luthor, Captain Cold, and the star of the show Gorilla Grodd. Let’s be honest, who doesn’t want a skull-wielding monkey in their collection?

We’ve got the Suicide Squad movie, an entire season of Gotham based on the baddies, and Kotobukiya’s Villains Forever figure line! We saw the Lex Luthor <a href="http://www.plastikitty.com/home/sdcc-2015-kotobukiya" target="_blank">at SDCC</a>, but there has been some progress since then: Red Robin and Red Hood were out as well! No surprise that for the start they’re sticking with some of the more popular guys–but if the concept art is any indication, we’ll be getting a really great mix–including Bizarro? I sure hope so!</p>

A lot more. Given that it’s San Diego COMIC Con, there were (of coure), a lot of comic goodies, including the impressive Hulk vs Hulkbuster statue that <a href="http://www.plastikitty.com/home/toy-fair-2015-kotobukiyas-marvel-artfx-hulk-vs-hulkbuster" target="_blank">we first saw at Toy Fair</a>. They also had statues ranging from Arkham Knight, Batman, Black Panther, and Iron Man to their newest ArtFX+ line which focuses on the villains. First up is a rather crazy-looking Lex Luthor. As opposed to non-crazy Lex? Haha.</p> <p>There was also a handful of non-comic-based merch. Their popular franchises like Halo and Alien popped up, along with a few anime lines like <em>Aldnoah.Zero</em> and <em>Tokyo Ghoul</em>. Check them out and more in the gallery!</p> <p>[Thanks to the amazing Anne Mortensen-Agnew for providing us with these images! <3]</p>
