Upcoming KOTOBUKIYA Japanese imports

Inspired by Jim Lee’s 1990’s era X-Men, sculpted by Erick Sosa, Sabretooth stands nearly 14 inches tall (in 1/6th scale with the other Danger Room Sessions members Wolverine and Psylocke). Beneath his feet is an amazing exclusive base consisting of snow-covered rocky terrain on top of a mechanical projector. Every mutant in the Danger Room Sessions series is mounted on a unique Danger Room holographic environment with translucent parts that glow with a built-in LED light in the base.
