Kotobukiya dropped us a quick email to let us know that the company plans on giving away a lot of prizes at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con. You’ll have to take the jump to see the full details, but it does make me jealous that I can’t go this year.

Beginning on Thursday July 23rd at 11am, Koto will hold a special event every hour at their booth, such as behind-the-scenes presentations, new license announcements, live podcasts, and more.  Accompanying each hourly event will be a chance for fans to compete in trivia challenges and walk away with great Kotobukiya collectible merchandise as prizes, with individual values up to $200.00.  Each day’s prizes will include at least one sold-out Iron Man Movie Fine Art Statue, Bishoujo Statues, Star Wars Clone Wars goods, and many others.

Aside from the hourly events, there will be one daily Grand Prize awarded.  The winner of the daily drawing will receive a one-of-a kind prototype used in the creation of a Kotobukiya toy.  These unique prizes are worth thousands of dollars and will include:

Thursday Grand Prize:
IRON MAN MOVIE: MARK II FINE ART STATUE PROTOTYPE

Friday Grand Prize:
ROGUE BISHOUJO STATUE PROTOTYPE

Saturday Grand Prize:
STAR WARS COMMANDER REX ARTFX+ STATUE PROTOTYPE

Sunday Grand Prize:
MARVEL WOLVERINE FINE ART BUST PROTOTYPE

Additionally, many new goods will make their debut at the show and be available for fans to purchase for the first time, including

  • STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS – CLONE TROOPERS- ARTFX+ STATUE SERIES
  • X-MEN CLASSIC CHAPTER: FINE ART BUSTS – all Seven characters
  • INFINITY GAUNTLET FINE ART THEATRE
  • ROGUE & BLACK WIDOW BISHOUJO STATUES

Seven other MARVEL Fine Art Statues & Busts, including CABLE, NOVA, CAPTAIN AMERICA, IRON MAN MARK II, and many others.

All of the above debuts are in addition to the previously announced SDCC Exclusives: YELENA BLEOVA BLACK WIDOW BISHOUJO STAUTE and X-FORCE WOLVERINE FINE ART BUST (each strictly limited to only 500 pieces).

To recap: every hour, Koto will have a special event.  At every special event, fans will have a chance to win a prize.  Every day of the convention, fans can enter to win a Grand Prize Prototype.

A full schedule of hourly events will be forthcoming.  For full contest details, please visit  HYPERLINK “http://www.KotoUS.com” www.KotoUS.com, or visit the Kotobukiya  Booth #2601 during Comic-Con July 22~26 at the San Diego Convention Center.
