Yesterday we showed a sneak peek at the new Juggernaut Statue that is coming from ARTFX. Today we have the full Reveal! Check out the statue below and let us know what you think after the JUMP!
Kotobukiya has fully revealed their Juggernaut Statue. Instead of being part of their ARTFX line, the Marvel Comic Juggernaut Statue will be part of their Fine Art Statue line, which will give it even greater detail and be even larger…1/6 Scale to be exact. It’s due for release in August 2014.
A Kotobukiya Japanese import! Kotobukiya’s amazing X-Men Danger Room Sessions Fine Art Statue series is back! We’ve seen a variety of mutant heroes and even Magneto battling the holographic dangers in the X-Men training facility, and the latest character to come crashing in is the Juggernaut! Cain Marko was a bully as a child and had destiny forced upon him when he met his step-brother Charles Xavier. The two would later serve together in the US Army in Korea where Marko found an ancient temple devoted to the demon Cyttorak. Finding a giant ruby and reading a magical inscription, the man was mystically transformed into the powerful, unstoppable Juggernaut! Cain has spent most of his career as a villain, but (although not a mutant) has also served heroically alongside the X-Men; it was during those times that he had access to the Danger Room. Ever since the early days of Marvel Comics’ mutant adventures, “X” teams have trained together in the ultra high tech facility known as the Danger Room, equipped with state of the art adaptive combat and athletics routines that challenge each participant in unique ways. The training facility has been featured prominently in X-Men comics over the years, as well as in various cartoons and the third X-Men film.
An immense mass of muscle and fury rivalling even the Hulk, the Juggernaut crashes across the simulated Danger Room battlefield destroying everything in his way. Marko wears his iconic classic costume, a unique outfit consisting of a brown sleeveless jumpsuit with a purple belt and boots. Matching brown bands wrap his arms and hands, while on his head he wears the immediately recognizable Juggernaut helmet! The beefy villain has one huge foot planted in front of the other, bending forward at the waist with a fist raised in defiance of his opposition. Every muscle and sinew covering the Juggernaut’s beyond ripped body is sculpted to perfection, along with his costume stretched taught over it. Meanwhile, the look on Marko’s face through his helmet perfectly captures the character’s rage and ferocity!
Sculpted by Danger Room veteran Erick Sosa, Juggernaut stands in 1/6th scale along with the other “Sessions” members like Psylocke, Wolverine, Colossus, and Cyclops. Also like them, Cain Marko stands on a unique Danger Room holographic environment; this one replicates the X-Mansion itself complete with the smashed seal of Charles Xavier’s Institute ground beneath his feet. Whether you’re collecting the Danger Room Sessions statues or are a fan of Juggernaut, this Fine Art Statue is the definitive representation of the character!
