Kotobukiya has made a habit of whetting collectors’ appetites with a teaser very soon after each Marvel Kotobukiya Bishoujo statue is revealed, and following this week’s full reveal of the Bishoujo Jubilee, they’re continuing that trend. And this time, Kotobukiya has chosen one of the most legendary of all classic Marvel heroines–it’s our first teaser image of the Kotobukiya Wasp Bishoujo statue!Continue Reading →
It’s time to call Hela, because Hel just froze over! For the second time in under a month, I’m excited about a Kotobukiya Marvel Bishoujo statue. Ordinarily I find the statues in this particular line to end up more than a little slutty-looking, but Koto really impressed me with their SDCC 2014 Psylocke Bishoujo exclusive. And now, just a few weeks after unveiling that beauty, Kotobukiya has blown away my expectations with another upcoming release: the Kotobukiya Jubilee Bishoujo statue is now up for order!Continue Reading →
Regular readers know that I’m pretty outspoken about my dislike of the Kotobukiya Bishoujo Marvel statues. I feel that they’re often posed in such a cheesecake way that they’re embarrassing to look at, much less bring into the house where my wife can see them. But Kotobukiya won my first-ever Bishoujo statue sale last year when they released one of my absolute favorite characters, and now they’re going to be removing money from my bank account once more for her variant–the SDCC 2014 Kotobukiya Classic Psylocke Bishoujo statue has now been revealed!Continue Reading →
When Kotobukiya showed off the unpainted Bishoujo Spider-Woman statue sculpt at New York Comic Con 2013 one month ago, we knew it wasn’t going to be long until we saw the official painted photos of the piece and the opening of pre-orders.
Sure enough, over the weekend Kotobukiya released glamor shots of the statue, and the 2014 Kotobukiya Spider-Woman Bishoujo statue is now available for order!Continue Reading →
Regular readers know that I’m not quite a fan of the typical Kotobukiya Bishoujo Marvel statues. That said, Kotobukiya definitely got my attention last week when they revealed the concept sketch for a Jubilee Bishoujo statue before New York Comic Con 2013 even began! I suspected we wouldn’t see any further sneak peeks of Jubilee (that sounded dirty) at the show, but I made Kotobukiya an early stop at NYCC 2013 nonetheless. I was rewarded for my efforts with a release date for the Kotobukiya Jubilee and a glimpse at some upcoming statues, including the Bishoujo Spider-Woman sculpt being shown for the first time ever…Continue Reading →
“No. Way. No freaking way.” Those were my words this morning when I woke up and saw the latest news from Kotobukiya. It figures–it just figures–that immediately after I make a post in which my usual distaste for the Kotobukiya Bishoujo statue line shines through, Kotobukiya goes and shows a Marvel Bishoujo statue concept design illustration that blows me out of this world. I never thought they would pick her, but Kotobukiya has selected the one instant-buy female character in the whole Marvel Universe: it’s the Kotobukiya Jubilee Bishoujo statue!Continue Reading →
Kotobukiya has a real treat lined up to close out the 2013 lineup of Marvel Bishoujo statues: an all-new X-Force Psylocke Bishoujo statue! While Kotobukiya has released Psylocke before, the original Psylocke statue is 1:8 scale and out of scale with the current Bishoujo figures being released (not to mention mega-expensive). But Kotobukiya has heard the demand for a new and properly scaled Marvel Bishoujo Psylocke loud and clear–and she’s coming our way in December 2013!Continue Reading →
