Kotobukiya’s latest entry in the ARTFX statue collection is none other than the DCU’s number one assassin – Deathstroke.
The result of a super solider program, Slade Wilson posses enhanced strength, speed, agility and reflexes. A formable opponent in hand-to-hand combat with genius level tactical intellect this mercenary for hire is not one to be taken lightly.
Deathstroke has taken on a much bigger role in the DC Universe in the last few years, first as a villain and now in the New 52 as a bounty-hunting anti-hero. He’s actually become such a big deal that he not only has his own comic, but he’s also got a semi-starring role in Warner Bros’ upcoming Arkam prequel, Batman: Arkham Origins.
Much like the character himself, the new 12″ statue from Koto is looking pretty awesome. When I first saw the detail on this piece, I thought it was cool; when I saw that the helm flipped up to reveal Slade’s face, I thought it was awesome. Little features like that count for a lot with comic fans and the Deathstroke ARTFX statue is looking like it has all the boxes checked off.
Get ready, Deathstroke drops onto store shelves this November and will run you $119.99 USD.
