Black Widow kicks off Koto’s ‘Woman of Marvel’ line in March

Kotobukiya’s ARTFX Premier line was one of the coolest reveals at this year’s Toy Fair. The line has already expanded beyond the original four that were shown in February, and it looks like Koto isn’t quite ready to slow down. Here are the details:

From Kotobukiya’s ARTFX PREMIER series comes a new line of statues. 

The new line, “WOMAN of MARVEL”, shines a spotlight on popular female characters within Marvel.

From the detailed sculpt of the figure, to the realistic costume and facial expressions, each statue showcases the characters’ “beauty” and charm while staying true to the series and personality. 

Black Widow is the first to join this new line. 

Despite the face only being 3.5cm in size, the paint decorating the statue perfectly emulates the character’s personality and facial expression in the makeup and sculpt of the face. The base of the statue features abandoned ruins with puddles that showcases Black Widow’s reflection as if the base is truly wet. 

The “beauty” resonating from each statue in this new line in the ARTFX PREMIER series is a work of art that will please collectors worldwide. 

Each ARTFX PREMIER statue comes in a luxurious packaging that differs from other Kotobukiya products. Every ARTFX PREMIER statue includes a serial number on the base, making each statue a one of a kind product. 

This all new and refined statue will be sure to stand out in any collection. 

Black Widow releases in March, with a retail price of $174.99.

I love the different costume textures here—something I noticed in the Loki that was recently announced, too. I also appreciate that Koto is putting out non-Bishoujo statues of female characters. I know there’s a market for that hyper-exaggerated, hyper-sexualized style, but it’s nice to see options for folks—like myself—who aren’t interested in having such a thing on their shelves.

I also think the detail is outstanding. My Koto rep gushed about the little details back at Toy Fair, pointing to Hulk’s tongue, among other things. Well, I can’t help but notice how well they did Natasha’s cheek bones in this one, and the paint on the face as a whole is outstanding.

What do you think? Let us know in the comments!
