    Toy Fair 2017: Square Enix’s Marvel Play Arts Kai Figures

    Are Square-Enix’s DC figures a little too strange for you? Well don’t worry, friends, the Marvel line is here to save the day! Just kidding, they are pretty strange too. Unless, you know, futuristic gladiator Wolverine is a totally normal thing I’ve somehow missed out on. At least Doctor Strange looks pretty true to form?

    I will admit, Magneto’s scrap metal cape is absolutely amazing, and kind of ingenious. Could I do without the 6-pack armor? Yeah, maybe. But I want a metal cape of my own (that doesn’t weigh 6 tons, please).

    Kotobukiya had two Bishoujo-related announcements at Toy Fair: the art for Katana and the full reveal of Kamala.
