Established all the way back in 1953, Kotobukiya was launched by three brothers looking to make a name for themselves in the toy industry. What began as a single store for dolls quickly expanded to the point where the company was producing a vast number and variety of original model kits.

      How to Verify Kotobukiya Figures

      Bootleg figurines are a problem many model collectors and hobbyists have to deal with. The last thing you want is to invest your money and excitement in a product that turns out to be a fake.

      The simplest way to circumvent this issue is by purchasing Kotobukiya figurines from authorised, trusted dealers — like Hobbyco! We stock one of the largest ranges of Kotobukiya in Australia and are always looking to add to our collection.

      Aside from purchasing from credible suppliers, other strategies you can use to verify the legitimacy of a Kotobukiya figure include:

      Know The Figurine Characteristics Well 

      Bootleg figurines can often easily be spotted by genuine fans — perhaps an item of clothing is the wrong colour, or the character is missing a particular piece of armour they always wear.

      Look For The Fine Details 

      Manufacturers of bootleg figurines are unlikely to put in the time and effort that’s required to authentically capture every detail of your favourite character. A sloppy paint job or even inaccurate box art can be an obvious giveaway.

      Check The Accessories

      Know what extra parts your Kotobukiya figurine should come with. The Arcanadea Velretta, for example, comes complete with a weapon that changes from an umbrella to a lance — if this is missing, there’s a chance your purchase isn’t legitimate.

      Should I Display My Kotobukiya Statues?

      Collectors of Kotobukiya figurines often face a difficult conundrum — do you show your models in the box, behind a glass case or on open display?

      If you’re someone who likes to frequently pick up your models, rearrange them into poses and recreate iconic scenes and pop culture moments, having them on open display might be the best option.

      If you’re predominantly an investor and plan to resell your Kotobukiya figurines further down the track, there’s no doubt that keeping them in their boxes is the best option.

      Using a display case is a nice middle ground — it’s not too difficult to access but provides an added layer of protection. Many Hobbyco customers find this is the preferred option when it comes to displaying their Kotobuyika statues.

      Where Are Kotobukiya Model Kits Made?

      The Kotobukiya headquarters remain in Japan, with the products sold domestically and internationally.

      These days, many Kotobukiya products are manufactured in China; however, this may differ depending on the specific model. If you have a specific product you’re interested in and would like to know more about it, we encourage you to contact the Hobbyco customer service team.
