Danger Room Sessions Juggernaut Fine Art Statue 
From Kotobukiya. Kotobukiya's amazing X-Men Danger Room Sessions Fine Art Statue series is back!  We've seen a variety of mutant heroes and even Magneto battling the holographic dangers in the X-Men training facility, and the latest character to come crashing in is the JUGGERNAUT!  Cain Marko was a bully as a child and had destiny forced upon him when he met his step-brother Charles Xavier.  The two would later serve together in the US Army in Korea where Marko found an ancient temple devoted to the demon Cyttorak.  Finding a giant ruby and reading a magical inscription, the man was mystically transformed into the powerful, unstoppable Juggernaut!  Cain has spent most of his career as a villain, but (although not a mutant) has also served heroically alongside the X-Men; it was during those times that he had access to the Danger Room.  Ever since the early days of Marvel Comics' mutant adventures, "X" teams have trained together in the ultra high tech facility known as the Danger Room, equipped with state of the art adaptive combat and athletics routines that challenge each participant in unique ways.  The training facility has been featured prominently in X-Men comics over the years, as well as in various cartoons and the third X-Men film.

An immense mass of muscle and fury rivaling even the Hulk, the Juggernaut crashes across the simulated Danger Room battlefield destroying everything in his way.  Marko wears his iconic classic costume, a unique outfit consisting of a brown sleeveless jumpsuit with a purple belt and boots.  Matching brown bands wrap his arms and hands, while on his head he wears the immediately recognizable Juggernaut helmet!  The beefy villain has one huge foot planted in front of the other, bending forward at the waist with a fist raised in defiance of his opposition.  Every muscle and sinew covering the Juggernaut's beyond ripped body is sculpted to perfection, along with his costume stretched taught over it.  Meanwhile, the look on Marko's face through his helmet perfectly captures the character's rage and ferocity!

Sculpted by Danger Room veteran Erick Sosa, Juggernaut stands a massive 11 inches tall in 1/6th scale along with the other "Sessions" members like Psylocke, Wolverine, Colossus, and Cyclops.  Also like them, Cain Marko stands on a unique Danger Room holographic environment; this one replicates the X-Mansion itself complete with the smashed seal of Charles Xavier's Institute ground beneath his feet.  Whether you're collecting the Danger Room Sessions statues or are a fan of Juggernaut, this Fine Art Statue is the definitive representation of the character!

Three siblings, all from royalty.  A mission awaits them, given to them by a goddess they know only through her voice, courtesy of their dreams.  It is a journey that will force them to grapple with a choice, the future, or their family.  

If that sounds intriguing, believe me it is.  That fantastic concept is courtesy of author Robin Childs (a.k.a. Robin Dempsey) the brains behind the awesome comic series, Ley Lines. 

We have covered Robin's incredible work before with good reason, this fantasy adventure of hers instantly draws you in.  It is in a nutshell, as epic as they come.  So much in fact that Robin has two volumes of this story available.  But what makes the story so compelling?  After all a fantasy adventure is awesome but it needs something more to truly find its way into our hearts.  

Well when it comes to Ley Lines the material is relatable.  You'll find storylines that deal with political conspiracy, or family.  All things we discuss or deal with in our daily lives.  But while we can connect with the material, it is the sprawling world that continues to impress.  

If anything, Robin has created an incredible universe, one so rich in its storytelling that the time has come for the third volume of her work and she has started a Kickstarter campaign to get the third volume of these wonderful stories into print.  Robin is well known for offering some incredible incentives when it comes to her Kickstarter campaigns and this go round is no exception. In fact perhaps one of the coolest incentives I see, is the Dream Eater's TOTALLY TRUE (I swear) Trickster Tales! a collection of short stories, comics and illustrations.  

The Kickstarter alone is worth a look and take it from us, this whole storyline is one to check out and one worth supporting.
