GANGSTA ARTFX J Nicolas Brown
Kotobukiya takes you to the mean streets of Ergastulum with a pair of Handymen from the hit series GANGSTA. They’re the latest additions to the ARTFXJ Statue lineup (a bold expansion designed “to bring Japanese characters to their fans worldwide”) starting with the superhuman “Twilight”NICOLAS BROWN! The Celebrer-enhanced anti-hero is frozen in mid-action, bouncing off of a wall and taking a mighty swing with his katana. There is a fantastic amount of detail on the black-suited Handyman from the intricacies of his clothing and its movement around him in his action-packed pose to the hilt wrappings on his blade, the dog tags hanging off his neck, and his fierce scowl. Sculpted by Tatsuya Hattori, Nicolas Brown is nearly 10 inches tall (1/8 scale) as he launches into the air with his feet barely touching the remains of blasted Ergastulum rubble. This Twilight looks amazing as he does the job he was hired for, and he’s even better with his partner Worick Arcangelo.
