Thor Statue : Avengers Reborn by Kotobukiya

A KOTOBUKIYA Japanese import! In 1962 comic book mastermind Stan Lee set out to create a new superhero, one who was incredibly powerful. He found such a character in Norse mythology, the god of thunder THOR. A true champion of good, Thor has fought beside many other Marvel Comics superheroes throughout the years, including several incarnations of the Avengers. The thunder god is the first in the all-new Avengers Reborn series, and will be joined by both Captain America and Iron Man!

The mighty Norse god has never before appeared so powerful and dominating, bringing to life the current version of Thor as imagined by popular writer J. Michael Stracyzinski. Thor stands in the midst of battle, swinging the hammer Mjollnir against the foes of Asgard. No detail has been overlooked on the god’s intricate armor, with incredible detailing there and on his billowing cloak. The resplendent colors of Thor’s outfit shine, with the red and blue offset by the gleaming silver of his armor. The hero’s intense expression and dynamic pose clearly shows his power and battle prowess!

Sculpted by Shinya Akao, Thor towers over his enemies at approximately 12 inches tall (1/6th scale). The mighty Avenger stands upon a deluxe motif base of rocky stone adorned with the god’s symbol. This base not only looks great on its own, but it will also match those on the other Avengers Reborn Fine Art Statues! The Kotobukiya Thor Statue is constructed of high-quality cold cast porcelain and is a limited, numbered edition.
