Good pose, suit is pretty nicely done (though, I would've liked sculpted cape more). Would've definately bought him, but the headsculpt :dunno

Is it just me or does it look like Jim lee drew a picture of Cavil as Superman and then they based it on that.

You can see who it is and i quite like that it's not a GG scan makes it look more comic book style and i love the pose. I would expect to see a Zod to go with this it looks like a face off.

Not for me but I think it looks pretty cool. A bit different Koto have gone for a fabric cape. I don't think I've ever seen them do mixed media before

Is that a magnetic base?

RagingBull
04-19-2013, 01:12 AM
Looks like it doesn't it. I've seen Koto do that a lot so I would think so

Looks great, love the mix media, but i'm trying to avoid anything from the MOS line of collectibles. Koto and HT IM3 figures are eating my cash this year.

I have my HT Reeves, thats all I need.

Guess it is for the first time they have used mixed media. Not that I do not like the concept, but in this particular figure it is not looking that good. Really like the pose, wish they would fix that headsculpt. Was actually looking forward to Koto's MoS stuff.

Really not feeling this one. It looks like The Hoff doing leg stretches down the gym with a towel round his neck.

Hate the cape, the scale and texture looks so off on it, like a red blanket.

I'm ok with the Hoff face even, but he does look a bit like he's straining to get one out.

Kotobukiya did an awesome job with the head sculpt, it looks just like Cavill. Definitely pre-ordering, and the price is excellent as well. For those that have ordered from them before, Do they have pretty good paint apps?

Agreed. So far Kotobukiya has done the best job sculpting Cavill.

I actually prefer this to Sideshows PF (poor pose) and Hot Toys figure (Puffy body)

06-14-2013, 07:48 AM
I like sideshow better, the PF materials look better but this pose is ok, more dynamic not necessarily better just different.

I love this statue! If I pick up any MoS it will definitely be this one. Great pose, nice sculpt, and best value for the money! And Kotobukiya will deliver on the quality too!

tjw344
06-15-2013, 03:01 PM
Although the Hot Toys figure looks really nice too and you can pose him however you want. Never bought a HT figure though so not sure about the quality?

I agree, I like the pose and the sculpt, the only thing I don't like is the cape color/material. I think it should have been a bit darker and the material texture looks like those old itchy pajamas from the 80's.

I agree with you on this one.

Does anyone know if the cape on this is poseable?

Anyone heard anything on the US ship dates for this? I know Koto can sometimes be delayed, like with the Venom Unbound fine art statue. I have this on PO and I'm curious if no news is good news and I can expect this in the next few weeks?

Yes, it's a dense solid plastic. I'm very happy with it. The Cape is a thin felt. I wish the Cape were a bit darker but it doesn't take away from anything at all as is. Also the wires in there are great. You can pose the Cape any way you want. It stands straight up no problem and holds any shape you make it.

This statue absolutely kicks ***.

Ignore the crappy iPhone pic but the pose, the costume and the texture, the cape, the base... Everything is awesome. Price is decent. The only weak point is the head sculpt - well more likeliy the paint job but even it is awesome under the right lighting (not direct).

I'll probably skip the HT and keep this one. I'm in love with the dynamic pose!

Is kotobukiya doing other man of steel artfx pieces? I want a zod and Jor El to display with this. May need to go with the dc direct iconic versions but I hate the paint on the head sculpts.

I picked it up simply because it is a great statue for the money. Is it the absolute perfect likeness? No, but the pose and cape are great and for the price, you can't go wrong. I love it and agree with others that I need a Nolan Bale Batman statue to go with it.
