Kotobukiya has a reputation for their amazingly intricate, highly detailed sculpts, so something like Halo seems like the perfect property for them. Take their upcoming Master Chief statue, the first Halo ART FX release they have planned… We’ve seen a lot of collectibles based on this Spartan hero, but Kotobukiya gives it their all, packing in an insane amount of detail to the Chief’s armor and weaponry.
From the scoring and damage on his armor, to the scaled pattern of the bodysuit underneath, each detail of this great character design is rendered beautifully on Kotobukiya’s new piece, and Master Chief strikes an authoritative pose as he descends a ramp with his Battle Rifle in hand.
While this is a statue, that doesn’t mean we don’t get display options, either– Chief includes an alternate set of arms which can rest his rifle on his shoulder, while brandishing a Frag Grenade. This isn’t the first time Kotobukiya has included alternate pieces to change up the look of your statue, but I love this added feature every time we see it, and it’s a great way to add some options to your display figure without affecting that wonderful sculpt.
Here’s some images of the ART FX Master Chief, as well as some more details from Kotobukiya. Look for this Halo release in stores this November.
A KOTOBUKIYA Japanese import! The fans have demanded it, and now Kotobukiya returns triumphantly to the best-selling Halo® series with an all new MASTER CHIEF ARTFX Statue! Stepping right out of Halo 4, the mega popular video game character wears his MJOLNIR Powered Assault Armor and strides down a high tech ramp in a Forerunner facility. The Chief carries his trusty Battle Rifle and comes equipped with two sets of interchangeable arms that let you pose the hero with weapon at the ready or held over his shoulder with a frag grenade in the other hand! The intricately sculpted armor captures every detail you know from the game with screen accurate two-tone green armor to his iconic gold hued visor. There’s even limited articulation at the neck and waist so you can create your own poses! Sculpted by M.I.C., Master Chief ARTFX stands nearly 12 inches tall and makes for a perfect centerpiece for your Halo collection. Watch for more ARTFX and ARTFX+ Halo statues coming soon from Kotobukiya!
