We saw a ton of new Star Wars info at Kotobukiya’s panel, and some of it was even out on display already! Like the Flametrooper, whose flamethrower is truly impressive as you can see here. Do you think it will be clear PVC? Because we all know how I feel about that. They had troopers of every possible combination (including a very cool storming-the-beach diorama from Rogue One), chopsticks of every variation, BB-8 ice cube trays, and much more!

The star of Kotobukiya’s Marvel display at NYCC was, of course, Squirrel Girl. But there was much more, including quite a few Bishoujos: Lady Deadpool, Spider Gwen, and Loki & Thor were all out and about. In fact, they had two Spider Gwens: Bishoujo and the new ArtFX+. For the first time ever, I think I might actually like the ArtFX+ better.
They had tons of statues out, like the Civil War battle diorama of Captain America and Iron Man (which would look amazing displayed with Hulkbuster). Check them all out in the gallery!

We’ve brought you quite a bit from Kotobukiya’s NYCC panel so far: Ms. Marvel Bishoujo, Katana Bishoujo, DC tv shows, Spike, Star Wars, Marvel, and DC. But there are always some assorted odds and ends left over!
They had information about a handful of their anime and game figures. None of it was that new, but we did get confirmation that the Street Fighter Bishoujo line would be continuing! They didn’t have a reveal here, but we were assured that Rainbow Mika is not the last one we’ll see. Along with that, we found out that the Horror Bishoujo line is also continuing! Again, no actual announcement, but they said there were “several interesting licenses” they were discussing. Which hopefully means not just one more Horror Bish, but a ton of them!

Of all the licenses that Kotobukiya tackled at their panel, Star Wars definitely had the most news and new merchandise. They’ve always done a lot with the franchise, but given that we have new, actually good movies I guess it’s not really a shock that we’re not getting bombarded with it! There’s a lot to cover so let’s jump right in.
We got the rough concept sculpts for the Finn & Rey ArtFX+, along with an announcement for Poe & BB-8 and Chewbacca and Han!. They also had the sculpt for the Obi-Wan ArtFX+, along with the tragically hilarious news that he will come with an empty cape to display if you prefer Dead-Kenobi. They had quite a few new troopers: thew Snowtrooper & Flametrooper 2 pack, FN-2199, Scarif Stormtrooper, Death Trooper 2-pack, and a Death Trooper ArtFX. They will also be expanding the Droid line with R4 and R5 sculpts!

We got some very exciting DC-related announcements at Kotobukiya’s panel (Bishoujo Katana and the TV show teasers). But given how massive their DC lines are, it’s no surprise that there was a ton more! Like the affordable retro Super Powers figures, their villains ArtFX+ line (including the brand-new Harley Quinn–and a new sculpt for Black Manta), and their ArtFX statues.
We also got a little more info about the Ikemen line. It was a pretty big deal when announced, and they discussed how happy fan response has been along with the potential of the line. If the Bat-Boys sell well enough, they will definitely be continuing with other characters!

We saw the new Marvel Bishoujo announcement, so it’s time for the DC one! And to the surprise of no one it’s Katana. Years ago it probably would have come as a shock, but since her Suicide Squad appearance it seems inevitable that we’ll get a ton more merch of her. I wonder if we’ll get an alternate unmasked head, or if it will be a totally masked Bishoujo? Because that would be something we haven’t really seen before.

Kotobukiya’s ArtFX+ Villains line has had a lot of great additions so far, but it’s no surprise that their Joker has been the most popular one. So it should also be no surprise that Puddin’s lady love is joining the line! Harley’s popularity is at an all-time high thanks to Suicide Squad, so I’m sure we’re going to be seeing a ton of figures of her…. in that terrible outfit.
Thankfully, this is classic Harley in her harlequin outfit! I’m not sure how I feel about the whole “holding up her butt with a hammer” thing because man, that seems uncomfortable. Just think of the splinters! But I just adore this outfit, so I’m really happy to be seeing more of it in any context.

I am really surprised by how consistently smitten I’ve been with the Horror Bishoujo line. As a hardcore horror fan it seems right up my alley, but I was hesitant about gender-swapped, sexified versions of my faves. After Edward Scissorhands and Chucky & Tiffany’s art reveal, I knew it was love, and Bishoujo Chucky’s sculpt has just solidified my love for this line.
She’s SO CUTE, guys. The cheeky pose, the amazing job they did on her face, the intricacies of her outfit sculpt, the sneaky knife behind her back… even though I am mortally petrified of dolls coming to life, I want her. I mean, if this little cutie got up and started walking around my apartment I wouldn’t even mind. As long as she keeps the knife to herself. And how creepy is the alternate face? Yes please.

It’s almost fall, and you know what that means–new season, new Prize Fair. They’re on the 45th already, if you can believe it! And like always, the big 4 (FuRyu, Taito, SEGA, & Banpresto) had all the upcoming prize figures out on display.
I always try to swear off prize figures, but like clockwork there are one or two that draw me back in. This time, funnily enough, it’s a collab I’ve basically ignored because I’m interested: the Madogatari figures. That Kiss-Shot in Homura garb, hnnng! There’s lots of other great stuff, and of course all the regulars (Evangelion, Miku, KanColle, Disney, Dragon Ball Z) were out in force. Check them all out in the gallery below!

Rogue One is still a ways away, but companies are already pumping out figure prototypes for it. Though given the success of The Force Awakens, I guess that’s really not surprising at all! Nor is it that Bandai is one of the first to hop on this brand-new bandwagon. They’re always very punctual.
So far, they’ve announced five S.H.Figuarts: K-2SO (aka not-Laputa-robot), Death Trooper, Stormtrooper, Shoretrooper, and Hover Tank Driver (surely the breakout star of Rogue). I’m just hoping for an eventual figure of Mads’ character, whoever that might be.
