Following up on the Batman from the <em>Batman: The Animated Series</em> ArtFX+, we’re now getting Harley Quinn and The Joker as well! I really love how the Harley here captures her more playful side from the show as opposed to the hyper sexualized versions we’ve been getting lately due to <em>Suicide Squad</em>, and The Joker has his iconic purple suit and massive grin, which I will always love in any form. The pair are both quite nice looking and are, honestly, must haves for any fans of the iconic show.</p>

I’m not gonna lie, every time I see this figure it looks like if a KPop star moonlighted as Red Hood, which, honestly is exactly what we all wanted out of this line and I really dig it. Red Hood’s abs are on full display here, as is the signature butt, which many fans were also looking for from a male version of a bishoujo line. I’m also really liking that Red Robin has three different head options, which elevates this figure that’s just “standing there” to new levels. Now to see what happens with the rest of the Robins!</p>

    Toy Fair 2018: Kotobukiya’s Ikemen Line

    So far Kotobukiya’s Ikemen line has given us a butt-tastic Nightwing and a less provocative but equally cool Red Hood. We knew they’d be doing all of the bat-boys, so it’s no surprise that we got a look at the art for two more of them at Toy Fair: Damian Wayne and Red Robin!

    I really appreciate that they went with a cute, sassy pose for Damian since… you know, he’s underage and all. He looks ready to angst it up!

    Kotobukiya’s Ikemen Red Hood Is Up For Order

    It has been quite some time since Kotobukiya originally announced the Ikemen line, an all-male companion to the lovely Bishoujos. But my interest has only increased with the long wait, especially once we got to see the beautiful & bootylicious Nightwing. Finally, fanservice for all! We knew Red Hood was next and I’ve been eagerly anticipating him because who doesn’t want a hot psychopath in their collection?

    Well, the time has finally arrived! Red Hood is here and ready to sass up your collection! He comes with not one but three faces: regular, the hood (of course), and a special first-release masked head. So fancy! He retails for ¥8,800 and will hit shelves in June in Japan, though like most of Kotobukiya’s figures he is getting an official US release. Are you guys excited for the Ikemen line?

    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?
