Brian's Toy Box
This week I'm bringing you some newly added Kotobukiya products and filling you in on the backstory of the company. Kotobukiya is based out of Tokyo, Japan and produces scale model statues, busts, and figures of Star Wars characters and many other lines. Their items are similar to those produced by Sideshow or Gentle Giant, but what really sets them apart is the fac that their items are model kits. Model kits are statues that have snap-fit pieces that can be assembled in seconds without glue or modeling skill.
We don't get Kotobukiya items in too often, but when we do it is always exciting! Below are some of the Kotobukiya kits that we currently have for sale.
One of my all time favorite Kotobukiya snap fit models that we currently have in stock would be the ROTJ Boba Fett 1/10th scale.
You just can't go wrong with a model kit of the most feared bounty hunter in the galaxy! The paint and articulation are flawless with this pre-painted model kit. Boba also comes with several accessories including helmet with detachable neck, 2 wookiee braids, and a magnetic display base for Boba’s feet to clamp down on.
The most unique Kotobukiya item we have in stock is the gold R2-D2 60th Anniversary Commemorative statue.
This piece is especially rare due to its limited release. The gold R2-D2 was presented as a gift to retail, licensing, and media partners to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Kotobukiya, meaning it was never available for retail.This is a definitely a hard to find piece that you won't see available on the market very often.
Check in next week where I'll bring you details about the new Rouge One items we will be adding to the Brian’s Toys website!
