Much like Kotobukiya’s BISHOUJO series, the concept of Kotobukiya’s IKEMEN line is to redesign popular characters from comics, games, and movies into the Japanese IKEMEN style. The IKEMEN series will show fans a different side of these heroes.
IKEMEN statues are 1/7 in scale, perfect to collect and display alone or alongside other IKEMEN and BISHOUJO statues!
