“The Flash” Shatters The Sound Barrier In Comic-Con Exclusive Promo, while we get a “first look” at “Arrow: Season 3”, AND a reveal of actor Colton Haynes as “Roy Harper” in costume as “ARSENAL” (better than “Red Arrow”, innit?

A Kotobukiya Japanese import! The latest DC Comics ARTFX+ Statue from Kotobukiya returns to the pages of the New 52 with a popular and colorful character, Green Arrow! Introduced all the way back in 1941, billionaire Oliver Queen was marooned on a deserted island and there learned to survive by the way of the bow. Taking those skills back to civilization after being rescued, “Ollie” would take on the identity of Green Arrow and fight crime in Star City and Seattle, though his adventures with the Justice League would take him all around the world and beyond. In the New 52 Green Arrow continues to defend the innocent as he investigates the truth of his past and what shaped him as a hero.
The Emerald Archer appears for the first time in the ARTFX+ lineup, posed with a wide stance as he scans for enemies (What happened to his EYES?!!) and prepares to draw an arrow. Oliver wears his New 52 costume featuring a black and green outfit that leaves his arms mostly bare for shooting. With reinforced boots, a padded chest piece, and armored gauntlets Green Arrow is ready for anything, and the gold accents shine on his buckles and arrow emblem belt buckle. The archer holds his bright green bow sideways in front of him, ready for nocking an arrow from the full quiver on his back. Wearing his trademark green hood and mask, the focused hero still shows off a bit of his blonde hair and scruffy beard.

While I haven’t been the biggest fan of Kotobukiya’s ArtFX+ DC comics and Marvel offerings, the company usually does a lot better than this. However, Kotobukiya really did a number on Green Arrow’s face. Something looks really off about the hood as well and the fact that he’s looking down (why does Kotobukiya keep doing this? It’s like the mandatory pink-eye on the Bishoujo line) doesn’t help it any… although the combination of looking down and the hood does help to hide that face.
Kotobukiya’s ArtFX+ New 52 Green Arrow can be pre-ordered for US$60 and is slated for a November release.
