ArtFx Plus 1:10 Pre-Painted Statue - Marvel Now! Spider-Gwen - Kotobukiya 2017

I'm not a huge collector of statues. But sometimes there is a great representation of one of my favorite characters and I just can't resist. I now own four ArtFx+ statues and I've been very impressed with all of them. The 1:10 (7") scale fits in very nicely with an action figure collection, and the price point is at that medium $50-60 level where it won't break the bank, but you'll probably be selective about you character choices. This is the first Marvel ArtFx I've picked up and I'm very happy with my purchase (my advice is to find someone with a Barnes & Noble membership and snag one of their 20% off coupons. That's the cheapest way I've been able to get one). I'll likely get any future Spider-ladies they produce (A classic Jessica Drew would be amazing), but I won't be holding my breath considering there is a decent number of Spider-boys on the schedule and no other women on the horizon besides Gwen. Maybe there will be some surprises at NYCC this week though.  Let's check out Spider-Gwen below!

SIDE NOTE: I'm restarting the social media arm of this blog (after years of being lazy). I made a new Instagram account (shesfantasticmadeofplastic) where I'll be posting pics of purchases, exciting press photos, toy events, and store finds. And I'll try to post links to new blog reviews on my Facebook. Click the links on the Right. Thanks!

Like typical ArtFx+ statues, Gwen has super-strong magnetic feet. I'm surprised how few metal surfaces I have in my house. Here she is sticking to side of my microwave.

The alternate Gwen head looks great, but I think her expression looks a little too happy for the pose.

She also come with a metal base for her magnetic feet to attach to.

Time for a Comparison Pic!
