    Plastikitty Discussion: 2018 Figure Wishes

    It’s a new year, Plastikitties! Time to wipe the slate clean and make a bunch of new resolutions. Of course with figure collecting, where pre-orders are sometimes a year in advance, it can be a little hard to make buying resolutions that will actually come into effect anytime in the near future. But we can always wish for things we want to see!

    That’s right, we want to know what figures you are hoping to see in the coming year. Of course Wonder Festival is coming up soon, so some of us might have our wishes granted sooner rather than later. Stephen is hoping for some figures from the gorgeous Mahoutsukai no Yome, and my one wish? For Orchid Seed to paint their damn library girl! But what about you guys? Any characters or shows you have your fingers crossed for? A certain direction you’d like to see a company move in? A new line you hope will be born? For Dollfie prices to get cut in half?

    Kotobukiya’s Bishoujo Captain Marvel Is Up For Order

    As a big fan of both the original Ms Marvel Bishoujo and the new Kamala version, I had high hopes for Kotobukiya’s Captain Marvel. I mean, she’s a badass flying chick with short hair. Played by the always-amazing Brie Larson in the upcoming film, no less! And the art was indeed pretty cool. Shunya was sticking with his newer, slightly-less-pinup style and went for a more realistic body and less cutesy face.

    The finished product is here (or at least orders for her are), and I’m a bit torn. I love the colors, pose, and face. I think the whole chest area is kind of weird: her ribs are suuuuper prominent and she’s got the “floating globes” boob dilemma going on. But look at those arm muscles, so good. While she comes in at the standard Bishoujo 1/7 scale, her retail is only ¥8,000 and she comes out in June!

    Check Out Stronger’s Fate/Grand Order Shielder

    So far I have really managed to avoid all of the Fate/Grand Order hype.
