    SDCC 2017: Nendoroid Tinker Bell

    I think we were all a little surprised when Good Smile Company announced a veritable truckload of Disney Nendoroids last year. What’s more surprising is how fast the line is going considering how picky I’m sure Disney is: we already have Belle and Rapunzel, and now it’s Tinker Bell’s turn! Seems like they are going to be tackling them in the (general) order they are on the reveal poster.

    I think Tinker Bell perfectly fits in with the Nendoroid shape. She’s so cute and tiny! Look at that lil angry face! I hope the blush is this strong on the final product because it really adds a lot to her character.

    SDCC 2017: Street Fighter Bishoujos Chun-Li & Cammy

    We’ve known for a while now that Kotobukiya would be doing a second version of Bishoujo Chun-Li, and I think most of us expected her to pop up at San Diego Comic Con. What I didn’t expect was two Bishes at once from the oft-neglected Street Fighter line: they have a new Cammy as well!

    It makes sense since these two were released quite close together in their original versions, and it’s kind of amazing to see how far the line has come since then. There is so much more detail here! Those thighs on Chun-Li, man, they’re something else.

    Kotobukiya’s Summer WonFest 2017 Teasers

    Wonder Festival is over a week away, but already we are getting teasers! Earlier every year, I tell you. This time Kotobukiya is first up to bat with quite a few updates & new figures… and they always have 2 teasers, so there are more where this came from.

    First up is the sculpt for their Pokemon Sun & Moon Lillie, along with the announcement that they will be doing Moon as well! We also have a new sculpt for Nono Morikubo from Cinderella Girls, and a new Captain America. They also teased the sculpts for Shokudaikiri Mitsutada from Touken Ranbu and Yang Wen-li from Ginga Eiyuu Densetsu.

    SDCC 2017: Ikemen Nightwing & Red Hood

    It has been almost exactly a year since Kotobukiya announced the Ikemen line, which is a male companion to the Bishoujos. Cute boys with cute butts doing cute things, finally! It seems that there has been a lot of work put into this line, because progress has been slow and they’re really trying to make it perfect. Both for us, of course, and for the ever-fickle DC.

    Now, finally, we are getting a peek at the fully sculpted & painted Nightwing! Look at that booty, it’s a thing of beauty. And his face is so sassy! We also got the full art for the next in the line, Red Hood. He looks so grumpy and adorable. Feeling a little tsundere, Jason?

    SDCC 2017: Bishoujo Supergirl Version 2

    Just a few months ago we found out that Kotobukiya would be doing a second, updated Bishoujo of Supergirl, spurred on by the success of the tv show. They have redone quite a few girls recently, especially in the Marvel & DC lines, but I really didn’t expect a second version of Supergirl any time soon! And now it’s time for the full sculpt reveal.

    I think I can safely say that this is the first time I liked the sculpt significantly more than Shunya’s illustration. The art just feels very safe and basic, where the sculpt has more emotion and detail. Instead of standing there kind of blankly she looks determined and strong!
