Kotobukiya’s elite Bishoujo Statue line has brought you beautiful characters from all manner of anime series, DC and Marvel comics, Star Wars, video games, and much more. Recently the series took a totally unique turn, transforming two horror movie icons into pretty girls with Jason Voorhees and Freddy Krueger. Now a third gender-bending film star joins the party with a stunning new Bishoujo interpretation of Edward Scissorhands!
Tim Burton’s classic 1990 dark fantasy introduced the world to Edward (played magnificently by Johnny Depp), a gentle automaton with unfinished scissor hands created by a mad scientist. Now that character’s iconic appendages, color scheme, and style have been interpreted by Kotobukiya based on an original illustration by Shunya Yamashita that brings Edward to life as never before.
The beautiful female version stands with all the awkwardness of the film character, her feet apart and knees spread, head cocked to one side, and scissor hands held up in front of her. “Edward” wears a fantastically detailed black gothic-style outfit with tall boots, stockings, a short dress with shredded skirt, long gloves, and a choker at her neck. The darkness of her clothing is offset by striking gold buckles and studs, and of course the silver blades of her scissors. Meanwhile, under her tousled black hair this unique creature silently ponders the world with a cute expression on her Bishoujo-styled face.

Edward Scissorhands stands 9 inches tall (1/7 scale) on a special themed display base.

Friday the 13th is an American horror franchise that, as of 2016, comprises twelve slasher films, a television show, novels, comic books, and tie‑in merchandise. The franchise mainly focuses on the fictional character Jason Voorhees, who drowned as a boy at Camp Crystal Lake due to the negligence of the camp staff. Decades later, the lake is rumored to be “cursed” and is the setting for a series of mass murders. Jason is featured in all of the films, as either the killer or the motivation for the killings.
Although the films were not popular with critics, Friday the 13th is considered one of the most successful media franchises in America – not only for the success of the films, but also because of the extensive merchandising and repeated references to the series in popular culture. The franchise’s popularity has generated a fanbase who have created their own Friday the 13th films, fashioned replica Jason Voorhees costumes, and tattooed their bodies with Friday the 13th artwork. Jason’s hockey mask has even become one of the most recognizable images in popular culture.
Sideshow has released new images of their latest cult-classic horror movie collectible: a 1:6th scale action figure of Jason Voorhees as seen in Friday the 13th: Part III. The reveal gives us a look at the many weapons of teenage mass destruction the figure will come with, including his trademark bloody machete, an axe and, just in case one tries to get away, a speargun.
The Batmobile was a classification given to certain models of Batman’s fleet of road vehicles. While Batman himself most often referred to the vehicle simply as “The Car”, Dick Grayson started calling it “The Batmobile” and the name stuck.
With each new model built and designed from scratch by Batman himself, the Batmobile was a custom, highly-modified road vehicle that far exceeded the capabilities of any vehicle of its kind in the open market. A veritable tank on wheels, each Batmobile was armored, highly maneuverable, and possessed numerous non-lethal deterrents that were used in Batman’s war on crime.
Sideshow and Prime 1 Studio are proud to present the Batmobile from Batman: Arkham Knight. Designed by Batman, the Batmobile is a highly detailed vehicle that exceeds capabilities of any other on the road. Armored and outfitted with enhanced recon capabilities and weapons, this tank-like custom car is Batman’s main mode of transportation around Gotham City. This 1:10 scale polystone diorama features an LED light-up function.
Arkham Knight fans, don’t miss your chance to own the Batmobile! Product Size: 13.74″ H (349mm)
Base: 26.96″ W (684.78mm) x 25.90″ L (657.86mm) x 18.89″ D (479.81mm)
Carl Grimes is a main character, the deuteragonist, and a survivor of the outbreak in AMC’s The Walking Dead. He is the son of Rick and Lori Grimes.

As time progresses, Carl slowly becomes hardened due to the severe loss of life and the environment around him, and he has shown to be more than willing to assist and protect the people he cares about.

Kotobukiya’s awesome 1/10th scale DC Comics collection has brought you New 52 heroes and villains, Classic Costume retro-inspired figures, and more, and now it expands into a whole new world with one of the most popular incarnations of the Dark Knight ever, BATMAN ANIMATED! That’s right, Batman: The Animated Series is the inspiration behind this new statue, and it perfectly recreates the Caped Crusader in the iconic Bruce Timm animated style.
Batman is captured in a wide stance, ready to spring into action against the superstitious, cowardly lot if bad guys who call Gotham City home. Bruce Wayne has never looked better with his chunky proportions and bold costume, primarily gray and black with a bright yellow utility belt, black and yellow bat-symbol, and a cool blue shadow effect on the inside of his cape. Of course, all of the familiar bat elements are included like the scalloped cutouts on his cape, pointy cowl, and the blades on his forearms. Best of all, Batman comes with multiple interchangeable parts so you can customize your display with three different sets of eyes (normal, squinting, and “weak”), three facial expressions (open mouth, scowl, and clenched teeth), and three poses for the right hand (thumbs up, holding a batarang, or holding a grapnel gun)!
Sculpted by Keita Misonou, Batman Animated stands just under 7 ½ inches tall (1/10th scale) on his included magnetic display base with perfect stability. He’s the perfect centerpiece for your Batman: The Animated Series collection and looks great alongside other Batman statues from Kotobukiya.
Available November 2016.
