Kotobukiya Marvel Now! Magneto ARTFX+ Statue is Magneto in totally different colors

One cannot talk about Professor X (see previous post) without bringing up Magneto as well. They are like the ying and yang when it comes to mutants. Once a friend of Professor X, leader of the X-Men, their different philosophies would cause a rift in their friendship. Magneto's role in comics has varied from supervillain to antihero to superhero, having served as an occasional ally and even a member of the X-Men at times.

Makes me wonder how different the Avengers films would have been if they were to face off against Magneto. Iron Man is practically all metal parts and Cap's shield is also magnetic. Both properties are owned by Marvel but since different studios have the movie rights, I guess we'll never know...

Sculpted by the same master artist who did the Marvel Now! Avengers series, Junosuke Abe, Magneto includes a magnetic display base (naturally). Join the master of magnetism with the previously announced Cyclops and Emma Frost (sold separately) and the rest of the X-Men team coming soon!
