You have a shelf of hero statues, but what about the villains? Kotobukiya unveiled a glorious Gorilla Grodd ArtFX+ statue that will dominate your Nerd Room of Doom.

Once a normal ape living in Africa, Grodd (along with his people) was given heightened intelligence by the pilot of a crashed alien starship. Unlike the other inhabitants of Gorilla City, however, Grodd also received incredible telekinetic and telepathic powers! With those and his unchecked aggression the fearsome ape would attempt to take over world on more than one occasion, though his schemes are continually stopped by the Flash. In the New 52 era of DC Comics Grodd was once again ruler of Gorilla City, and used the Scarlet Speedster’s powers against him (unsuccessfully). That version of the character is now immortalized in the elite ARTFX+ series with this massive and mean presentation of Gorilla Grodd standing on two legs and bellowing into the air with the skull of one of his victims held aloft! The maniacal villain has an incredible sculpt covered in realistic long fur and the snarl on his face will stop heroes right in their tracks. Grodd wears a fluttering red loincloth on a gold belt, and his matching helmet, pauldrons, and ragged cape are removable so you can display him as you like!

The statue is sculpted by Ikkei Jitsukata. I really like that the cape and helmet are removable if you want to have a different look (the loincloth is not removable).

Grodd is at a 1/10th scale, which puts it in line with other Kotobukiya statues. It stands 10-inches high and includes a set of magnets in the feet so you can display the figure on a base on just on your self.

The Gorilla Grodd ArtFX+ statue is available for pre-order now for $69.99, and should arrive in May of 2017.
