EX ARMOR TYPE: MONOCEROS. This new Armor Type emblazoned with the emblem of the Liberty Alliance was designed with a motif based on its namesake, the one-horned mythical creature known as Monoceros, or unicorn.Unlike the universal Armor Type designs that prioritize life support capabilities, Monoceros was developed for offensive purposes. Designed for utilization with the super soldiers created by Hakua Riken as part of a research project to create a stronger human body, Monoceros is a difficult armor type to use, as many of its features are dependent on the user’s specific abilities.In order to stand against threats to the Liberty Alliance such as Zoanthropus Lowe and Para-Pawn Expander, the super soldiers must overcome the limits on their physical strength and senses. These super soldiers have been modified to free them from the need to depend on machinery, but their existence as the strongest fighters amongst the human race comes at the price of their humanity. There is one recorded example of a soldier equipping a Monoceros and engaging with an Expander. Although only for a short time, the soldier was able to overpower the expander in an unprecedented showing of strength, earning that soldier the special title of “Byakurinkaku.”Weapons:- Laser Blade- Lightweight Blade x2- Limb Expansions- Iron NailsModel Specifications:- Despite its small stature of 93mm, the model boasts over 30 points of articulation.- The parts are made of a variety of materials, including ABS and POM for the hand parts.

KOTOBUKIYA Company first began as a single toy store for dolls operated by Jusaburo Shimizu in 1947. In 1951, he re-created his sole proprietorship into a limited liability company, together with his two brothers.
While always continuing to focus on retail sales, KOTOBUKIYA first venture into original products as a model kit manufacturer began in 1983 with Armament, our first original model kit. This was followed in 1985 with King Godzilla, our very first licensed kit.
What really set apart KOTOBUKIYA from other model kit manufacturers was the acquisition of the model kit license for Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam THE-O mecha, the first time a company other than Bandai was able to release Gundam products!
Our first foray into the non-kit business was in May of 1989 with soft vinyl statues and the Active Styling Figures (today branded as ARTFX Statues). Since then, we have increased our lineup with fully assembled and painted resin statues (now known as KOTOBUKIYA Fine Art Statues), Action Figures, One Coin Mini Figures・nd more!
As a model kit manufacturer, we were always striving to further improve the material and detail and articulation of our kits. That level of commitment has continued throughout all product types that we have developed, and KOTOBUKIYA is renowned for our quality and dedication to craftsmanship.
In our retail stores, we hold annual sculpting and painting contests, which is judged by our in-house and other known sculptors and outside judges, including the editor-in-chief of Hobby Japan, the Japanese model magazine. The number of entries normally exceeds three hundred, with entrants from all over Japan. In fact, some of our in-house sculptors originated as entrants into the contest and other toy manufacturers have scouted many others!
Over the years, were attracted the attention of not only top artistic talents, but also the favor of publishers and licensors who wish to work with only the best the toy and collectible industry has to offer.
In October 2009, A highly capable USA team was formed to strengthen its marketing and product development capabilities for the US market. The team was named KOTOBUKIYA KREATIVE 3. K3’s members are well known as one of the most talented US sculptors and artists in the arena of collectible statues and toys.
