    Kotobukiya Panel NYCC 2016: Star Wars

    Of all the licenses that Kotobukiya tackled at their panel, Star Wars definitely had the most news and new merchandise. They’ve always done a lot with the franchise, but given that we have new, actually good movies I guess it’s not really a shock that we’re not getting bombarded with it! There’s a lot to cover so let’s jump right in.

    We got the rough concept sculpts for the Finn & Rey ArtFX+, along with an announcement for Poe & BB-8 and Chewbacca and Han!.

    NYCC 2015: Kotobukiya’s Star Wars Merchandise

    We’ve already taken an up-close look at some of Kotobukiya’s newer Star Wars merchandise, like BB-8 and Captain Phasma, but of course they had a lot more going on! I feel like Koto has been making Star Wars figures forever, but they always manage to come up with something new. And, of course, with the new movies coming out we’re gonna have even more to choose from!

Haha, definitely no prequels.</p> <p>I’m team Star Trek, not Wars, but even I can appreciate the cuteness of this little guy. He’s a robot soccer ball! You can get a mini one to entertain your cats! Really, what more do you need from life. A little scaled statue of him, maybe? Well your wish is granted! Here he is, complete with a magnet so you can rotate & pose him. Plus there will be a new (paint-wise, not sculpt-wise) R2-D2 and C3PO to go with him! The gang’s all here, messing stuff up and being cute.</p>

Now, after having seen him painted at New York Comic Con, we have new images of Yoda from The Empire Strikes Back as well as more images of R2-D2 and C-3PO.

I love all of the Star Wars pieces that Kotobukiya is producing and the fact that they’re focusing on the older movies as well and can’t wait to see what ArtFX and bishoujo additions we get next so let us know what you’d like to see from Kotobukiya in the comments below!</p>

Both of the new larger scale 1/7th ArtFX statues, Yoda and Obi-Wan are in the gallery as well as the pair of R2-D2 and C-3PO. Yoda’s use of the Force for levitation can be seen in its full glory as well as all of the little details of the Degobah swamp around him. Obi-Wan’s fantastic texture on his robes, which I spoke about previously, is much better seen here, and all of R2-D2 and C-3PO’s parts of their designs are in full view – Kotobukiya really pulled out all the stops here.
