NYCC 2014: Kotobukiya’s DC Bishoujo Zatanna Gallery
Zatanna has always been one of my favorite DC girls. I mean, how can you not love a stage magician who is actually magic in real life? Plus, you know, fishnets and an amazingly cute/borderline cheesecake outfit help. Her art was so promising, and I was really hoping for Koto to pull out all the stops with this Bishoujo!
We already took a quick peek at her, but we got the opportunity to take a closer look at Zatanna behind the glass at NYCC. And, like most of the DC girls, she looks pretty amazing. The hair sculpt is so detailed, and I adore her pose. The gaps in her outfit will obviously not be there on the finished version, and she will also be coming with real fishnets!
NYCC 2014: Kotobukiya’s Marvel Bishoujo She Hulk Gallery
She-Hulk was definitely one of the more highly anticipated Bishoujos–fans have been clamoring to get her in the line for (literally) years, and her art was pretty freaking fantastic. But, as we saw when we originally showed the sculpt off, not everyone is 100% pleased with how she came out.
Let’s start with the good, which is most of her. The skintone is spot on, her muscular body sculpt is amazing, and I love the cartoony hair. But her face has been a point of contention. She looks young and sweet, not exactly what you want from a woman who could tear you in half. Fear not, She-Hulk fans! Kotobukiya is definitely considering re-doing her face before orders launch.
NYCC 2014: (NSFW) Good Smile Company’s Femto Statue Gallery
We already showed you Guts, the protagonist of Berserk, but what good is a show without an antagonist? Femto here, the antagonist, if you could even really call him that, is also getting the statue treatment from Good Smile Company and is just as imposing as Guts. Standing about the same size as Guts, but slightly shorter due to the lack of a giant sword, Femto is damn impressive. His base is actually the Behelit after, well, some spoilertastic things happen, and is full of naked and decaying humans and creatures, which is a nice touch.
Just like Guts, I’m in love with this piece. The sculpting is phenomenal and in its unpainted form reminds me of the statues of ancient Greece. The theme is also very similar to what you’d see in those older pieces as well due to the whole pseudo-Inferno and hell theme of the base. The musculature and anatomy displayed in this pieces is bar none and I really hope that they continue the line if this is what we’ve gotten so far.
NYCC 2014: Good Smile Company’s Eren Yeager Gallery
There are a lot of companies making figures of the main 3 cast members from Attack on Titan (Mikasa, Eren, & Levi). And I do mean a lot. So if you are just looking for one set of the trio, choosing a company is probably a huge pain in the butt. And I will admit that I’ve been on the fence between a few companies… until now, since after NYCC I am firmly on Team Good Smile.
I already knew I was in love with Mikasa, and Levi’s sculpt is looking nice, but Eren is truly impressive in person. The detail on his clothing and weaponry is, of course, totally on point, and I think they’ve captured his expression perfectly. Not to mention his unique base and super crisp hair sculpt! I definitely need the DX version of Mikasa to go with him…
NYCC 2014: Good Smile Company’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Gallery
We already gave you a quick look at the sculpt for all 4 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle figures from Good Smile Company, but we promised you a behind the glass look as well–so here it is! In all their turtle-y glory. Fun fact: the TMNT are supposed to be mutant red eared sliders. Male red eared sliders have distinctively long, sharp claws. I think the TMNT are hiding something from us.
Anyway, the detail on these pieces is downright insane. From their faces to the battle damaged shells to the intricate bases, there’s enough going on here to keep any figure fan entertained. We also found out a rough pricing estimate: $120~$150 for each turtle, which actually makes the set of all 4 less than the Colossal Titan if it ends up being the finalized price.

We just got a preview of the figma Sakura sculpt, but it seems there will be a poseable version of her on the market before Max Factory is done with theirs! In a totally out-of-the-blue announcement, Bandai is showing off a fully finished S.H.Figuarts of Sakura. In the same outfit. With basically the same accessories.
Personally, I prefer the poseability of figmas but I guess it’s nice to have options. You know what would be nicer? If she was in a different outfit, so I could buy both without guilt. I also bet that Bandai will also be giving us some Figuarts Zero of Sakura, hopefully not all exclusives like the Sailor Moon girls…

When it comes to Valkyria Chronicles’ Selvaria, there’s a noticeable trend: increased bust size. It wasn’t noticeable on her original figures from Alter or Enterbrain, but more recently (especially with swimsuit ones) Raita has really gone all out with the boobage. See Alter and Volks‘ bikini Selvarias, and the more recent Vertex sculpt.
I thought there might be a lull in her figures for a while, but Volks is bringing back a project announced a year and a half ago: a 1/4 scale CharaGumin Selvaria! Yup, 1/4 scale. So very expensive. But also very pretty! I’m loving almost all of this… except once again, inflated bust. Not nearly as bad as Vertex’s but she has Raita’s obnoxious signature floating boobs. If they were a bit more naturally shaped like Misae I wouldn’t even second guess this purchase.

With the literal flotilla of girls in Kantai Collection, not all of them can be the Homecoming Queen in terms of popularity. Sure, there’s Shimazake and Wo-Class, the ladies everyone wants a piece of, and then there’s girls like… Kitakami Kai. Poor Kitakami has had only one figure previous to this one: a Nendoroid, which is admittedly very cute.
Then there’s the ques Q version, which will also be released in gk form so… I guess that’s three? I actually like a lot of things going on in this figure: the subdued yet wonderfully shaded colors, her braid, and all of the weaponry. But there are just so many KanColle figures I want, and her pricetag of ¥12000 and February release date hurt a bit too much to justify.

Tony Taka has a lot of figures on the market, and I do mean a lot. However, the majority of them are from his Shining World character designs. While Native has been doing versions of his NSFW girls for years now, it isn’t until recently that we’ve seen a lot of his ecchi material in 3D. Which, well, is what he’s most famous for, so some of these figures are a long time coming!
Like the Dragon Toy figure we found out about at Wonder Festival, which is based on the cover of one of his older artbooks (from Comiket 76!). This has been one of my favorites for a while (in part because she looks suspiciously like Clalaclan) so I am thrilled to see that Dragon did such a great job with her! She is 1/6 scale and retails for ¥15,500 with a February release, and given that she’s already up on Amazon JP orders should follow on the regular shops tonight.

Kotobukiya has already given us one lovely Seraphim version of Sakuya from Shining Ark, so people were understandably skeptical when they announced a second one at Wonder Festival. I mean, Sakuya has some modes they have yet to cover–why do another Seraphim version?
BECAUSE SHE IS SO BEAUTIFUL, that is why! Unlike the first this is a giant 1/6 scale, and she’s… well, stripped down. While she has more wings (with a glitter finish!) her clothing is, shall we say, more minimalistic. It’s only ribbons, really. But I feel like this figure just captures Tony Taka’s art so well. The only think I’m worried about is the price tag, but let’s be real. She’d have to be over $200 for me to not bite the bullet for this beauty.

I was thrilled when Volks announced that they would (finally) be doing Dollfie Dreams of Ranka & Sheryl… especially since it’s a double release revealed in mid-fall. You know who else were just like that? Extra & Alter and KOS-MOS & Momo! Yeah, so there was a high probability of them being pre-order dolls. And indeed it’s been confirmed, with orders tentatively slated for November!
This is great news because I am totally in love with Sheryl. I love the DDs with more defined noses, and her faceup is beautiful. While I am not 100% sold on Ranka that’s just because the big eyes aren’t always for me, but oh my god the lightning bolt shoes. I think I need both of them.

We’ve taken a look at Anna Williams’ Bishoujo already today, so of course we can’t leave her sister out of the mix! This is another Bishoujo I’ve been on the fence about for a while now. On one hand we’ve got an awesome blurple camouflage print, a beautiful ponytail and a butt & thighs that could kill a (wo)man. On the other hand, we’re back to Shunya’s boob & butts pose, and her spine makes my head hurt.
Will the majesty of the booty beat out another turret spine? Will shiny latex override the logical portion of my brain? Who knows, only time will tell! For now, check her out in the gallery below.

Rogue is definitely one of the more popular X-Men, and possibly the most popular female member, so of course Kotobukiya has produced quite a few figures of her. Their Rogue Bishoujo, which came in two variations, was one of the very first Bishoujos (high time for a redo HINT HINT), and of course there are many statue versions of her to be had. But few represent her totally rad retro mall-rat hair, which kind of makes her seem like she belongs in Jem & The Holograms.
As we announced previously, they’ll be continuing the long-going Danger Room Sessions line with Rogue, who comes in two flavors (for the price of one!)–retro hair or mom hair. Okay, it’s supposed to be “modern hair” but let’s be honest. Mom hair.

It’s no secret that I was crazy disappointed in the art reveal for Anna Williams’ Bishoujo. I mean, the original Shunya version had that insane pattern on it… and a not-ridiculous pose. I was pretty sure I wouldn’t be sold on the sculpt, which is a good thing since Stephen and I aren’t currently collecting the Tekken Bishes.
But of course Shunya and his booty-making skills proved me wrong once again. I mean sure, the pose is absurd and there’s a lot wrong with her spine, but… I can’t resist. The power of the meaty thighs is too strong.

Is there a person alive who doesn’t love Wonder Woman? Well probably, but I don’t want to be friends with them so who cares. Wondy is everything little girls aspire to be: beautiful, powerful, loved, worshiped, and a kicker of serious ass. And while I love Kotobukiya’s Bishoujos of her a ton, they really topped themselves with the ArtFX version of her.
I mean, her face. It’s just so pretty! And the outfit, uhnf. Plus her makeup is totally on point. I bet her lipstick is MAC Diva.
