Kotobukiya Reveals ARTFX+ Han Solo and Chewbacca

Kotobukiya Han & Chewie ARTFX+Kotobukiya’s ARTFX+ line of 1:10th scale statue pre-painted, affordable, snap-fit model kits continues to deliver with the latest entry: the ANH Han Solo & Chewbacca 2-pack set. Koto has revealed full images of this amazing set, the designs taking their inspiration from one of the most iconic publicity still images of the infamous space pirate and his giant, alien partner. The 2-pack is looking at an October release date.

A Kotobukiya Japanese import! The incredible Star Wars ARTFX+ lineup has already featured some of the most iconic heroes and villains from the Star Wars films, and now it expands to an epic team up of two of the most popular characters of all time, Han Solo & Chewbacca! Jumping straight out of Episode IV: A New Hope, the inseparable smuggling duo stands side by side ready to take on the forces of the evil galactic Empire. Literally from different worlds (Corellia and Kashyyyk), Han Solo and Chewbacca formed an unlikely yet lasting friendship that would resonate with fans from their first appearance.

Ready to take on anything the Empire might throw at them, the pair of space scoundrels advance in turn as they point their weapons at hordes of ineffective Stormtroopers. Han wears his iconic outfit consisting of a white shirt, navy vest, orange-striped blue pants, belt with holster, and tall black boots. Meanwhile, his Wookiee partner is au naturel as usual, covered in thick brown fur broken up only by his bandolier. Both level their respective trademark weapons, a BlasTech Industries DL-44 heavy blaster pistol for the former and a crossbow-like bowcaster for the latter. Kotobukiya’s renowned craftsmanship is evident in all of the fine details from Chewie’s intricately sculpted fur to the folds and creases in Han’s clothing!

ARTFX+ Statues are fun-to-assemble pre-painted snap-fit kits that can be easily put together in seconds without glue or modeling skill. Han Solo stands just over 7 inches tall and Chewbacca over 8 inches (1/10th scale) atop their included display bases; magnets in their feet provide extra stability. Whether they’re guarding your shelves alone or displayed alongside the R2-D2 & C-3PO or Stormtrooper army builder two-packs they’re guaranteed to be the highlight of your Star Wars collection!

Available October 2014.

    This looks like a great set, but I’m wondering what other ARTFX+ fans think of this aggressively action-oriented pose, is that too much compared to the more neutral and adjustable designs in this line, or is this publicity still-derived design what the doctor ordered?
