About

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 it's 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 it's 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.

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!

Rally_Vincent (10 months ago) #32109359I love both Yuigahama Yui (ITEM #310355) and Yukinoshita Yukino (ITEM #310359). Any chance that Koto will release a matching Hikigaya Hachiman (ENTRY #48782)?
Cheers.


Kotobukiya (9 months ago) #34238493Hi Rally_Vincent,
Nothing to announce at this time, but thank you for the suggestion!

So I went and bought them for aftermarket prices, only to find that there is a rerelease coming only a few weeks later? I mean, come on.
