C2E2-Logo-Horizontal-Hi-ResKotobukiya is well known for its high-quality statues of Marvel, DC, Star Wars, and other characters once again had a presence at C2E2, albeit a somewhat smaller booth than I remember from 2012. In addition to their display, they had a small store where you could buy some of their trays used for ice cubes/chocolate/what-have-you. Take a look at our pictures below!

You know what I’m waiting for? The Mara Jade Bishoujo figure announced last year at San Diego Comic-Con as well as a companion X-Men Rogue to complement the Gambit Danger Room Sessions Fine Arts statue.
