Kotobukiya was first opened by Jusaburo Shimizu in Japan in 1947 and began as a single toy store for dolls. In 1953, together with his two brothers, Mr. Shimizu re-created his sole proprietorship into a limited liability company.

While continuing to focus on retail sales, Kotobukiya's first venture into original products as a model kit manufacturer began in 1983 with Armament. This was then followed up by its very first licensed kit, King Godzilla, in 1985.

Kotobukiya's first foray into the non-kit business was in May of 1989 with the release of soft vinyl statues and active styling figures (now known as ARTFX statues). Since then, the company has increased its lineup to include fully assembled and painted resin statues (Fine Art statues), Bishoujo (pretty girl) statues and 1:10 scale ARTFX+ statues, to name a few.



I was wondering of the reasons why the cu-poche line have had so many delays the past year and the lack of announcements of any new figure
Is this line dead? nothing new announced and plenty delays makes me worry about the future of this line
I'm aware that with the outbreak that is happening now, many toy companies will be affected in the future, but the cu-poche line was suffering even before this was a thing

Hey, just had an idea I wanted to share. Your bishoujo lines are great, and I was thinking a kaiju line would be really cool. Mothra, Godzilla, you know. I think people would like it.

Sooooooo, what are the odds of your Lum Invader figure being reissued now that Urusei Yatsura is being published in the US?

Also wondering about the Izuku Midoriya ITEM #728444 exclusive version being sold outside of Japan. Would love to add him to my “ordered” list, but I’m still holding out hope for a US release. (It looks like he is showing up in some US shops?) Any information you could provide would be much appreciated!

Hi, will it be possible to get Midoriya Izuku ITEM #728444 with the bonus head if I live in Europe?

Any chance you’d consider making bishoujo figures using the DC Bombshells designs?

Sooooooo. What are the odds of IT showing up as part of the Horror Bishoujo series at some point?

Good job on Pinhead, by the way. She looks amazing!
