Kotobukiya’s lineup of statues based on the superheroes and villains of DC Comics continues to grow, and following Captain Cold is another of Flash’s Rogues: GORILLA GRODD!
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 the 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!
Sculpted by Ikkei Jitsukata, Gorilla Grodd stands an incredible 25cm tall in the ARTFX+ 1/10 scale, and the magnets in his feet provide extra stability on his included display base. Whether he’s ruling your shelf standing by himself or fighting with the Flash, this gorilla is a fantastic addition to your DC Comics collection!
