@GeekeryDo: @mikeyturvey I agree with you. I stopped reading them because I got tired of it, though @Sir_Narwhal is correct that it's normal for comics.

@GeekeryDo: @Sir_Narwhal @mikeyturvey yeh but that's just one arc and it's easy to read it all since, as you said, it's been put together like that.

@NFern0: @Sir_Narwhal Sounds like (ohoho) specialist equipment. Black Friday is more mass consumer oriented isn't it?

Well, this happened a lot faster than I was expecting! There was a very, very long gap between the announcement of Street Fighter Bishoujos and the reveal of Chun Li, so I kind of assumed we’d have at least a few months to wait before we saw Cammy–even though we’ve already gotten a peek at her art. However, it seems like that big wait might have been over licensing issues or some such, because they certainly didn’t wait a long time to get Cammy sculpted… or painted! That’s right, this is a 2 for 1 teaser: we won’t be getting the usual sculpt-then-art for her, but an all at once reveal… and probably in the very near future, based on how crisp the sculpt & shading look in this sneak peek.

Well this sure happened quickly! We just saw the sculpt reveal for the Spider-Woman Bishoujo at NYCC, and she’s already painted. But the Marvel Bishoujo line is the fastest moving (usually), so I guess it’s not really THAT surprising. In any case, here she is, all latex’d up and ready to fight crime.
I was far from a huge fan of the art but I’ve been liking her more and more as the piece has progressed. Sure, she still has a boob-sock thing going on and the pose is a tad… questionable but come on she has spider webs in her armpits. How can you not like that? Also clear PVC hair, which I am unable to resist.
[UPDATE] The official pictures from Kotobukiya have been added to the gallery.

When we announced that Kotobukiya was making Bishoujos of horror icons Freddy and Jason, it seemed like no one (off of our website, of course!) really believed us. Sure, there’s an image of Freddy and Jason’s signature weapons and it was part of their Bishoujo announcement and it’s clearly drawn by Shunya but omg it’s just too weird, right?
Well as promised, Halloween has rolled around and we’ve gotten official confirmation (for a second time)! Kotobukiya is showing off the silhouettes for both of these big bads, and they look very intriguing. Freddy definitely looks very cheesecake, while Jason gets a more menacing pose. I’m absolutely dying to see the full reveal! Get it, dying? Because they’re horror films? And it’s Halloween?

I’ve kind of been dreading the Street Fighter Bishoujos since they were announced years ago. Why, you ask? Because personally I find the characters the tackiest of the fighting girls. Crazy, right? I don’t even know why, since certainly the argument can be made for other games *cough*DOA*cough* but I just… really don’t like Street Fighter. And come on, with already super sexed-up characters can we really trust Shunya?
As it turns out–maybe! At least for Chun-Li. Not so much for Cammy… hopefully Juri comes out nice. I haven’t really been head over heels for Chun-Li since her sculpt got revealed but she looks SO much better in person. And for everyone complaining about her face: this isn’t the final one! Changes will definitely made before she comes out.

Kotobukiya’s Tekken Bishoujo Jun Kazama has been painted for a short while now, but her painted prototype was off having fun adventures in Japan during New York Comic Con so we only had the raw sculpt to work with–but sometimes that can be a lot more telling than anything else!
I have to admit that she’s not my favorite of the Tekken lineup, mainly because I find her overall design, pose and outfit a bit boring compared to some of the more flamboyant characters. But she’s got the classic Shunya mix of strength and sex appeal, without crossing that line into overt tackiness. Her sculpt looks so great here that she’s definitely winning me over!

I must admit that I’m not the biggest fan of redone character sculpts in most instances. But so far, the Bishoujo line has been doing it right! They took some of their older sculpts, totally redid the art, and bumped them up to 1/7 scale to fit in with the new ladies. But I was a bit worried when they announced a second version of Wondy: I mean, the first one was nearly perfect! And I wasn’t 100% sold on the new sculpt.
But then I got to see her in person and this one has a clear sparkly skirt, so clearly she wins… at least for me. At first I found the armor a bit over the top and cheesy but come on, it’s comics. She’s pretty fabulous. I definitely like her as much as the first Wonder Woman… probably a bit more. A lot more, if we’re only talking about butts. Seriously. Go look at the butt.

One of the new Bishoujo sculpts Kotobukiya brought to New York Comic Con was Mara Jade, who has been garnering a lot of attention among Star Wars fans. Probably because she’s as awesome and perfect as her predecessor, Jaina Solo (review)! One of our favorite things about cons is that we can get a look at these figures behind the glass and take them for a “spin” and definitely the one I was looking forward to most.
Her promotional shots are already up on Kotobukiya’s page but she looks even better in person! I honestly think she might be their best Bish yet. She’s the full package: identical to Shunya Yamashita’s art, tasteful but sexy, a detailed and well thought-out sculpt, excellent use of clear PVC, and…. a fantastic butt!

Shunya Yamashita is a respected but controversial artist. Lots of people love him, but it’s hard to deny that his pinup style can go a little over the top sometimes and border on trashy. I find his taste level to usually be okay, but I had a lot of issues with the Spider-Woman art. Boob-socks, awkwardly sexual crouching pose, a pelvis apparently made out of silly putty.
But my opinion definitely warmed with the grey sculpt, which improves on a lot of areas. The pose is much more tasteful here, seeming more like crouching than, well…. you know, and they totally fixed the latex boob-sock effect. Plus her face is totally gorgeous! And the hair! Hopefully the paint comes out as nicely as the raw sculpt.

Video games are a great pass time for many of us, but when we’re not playing video games, it’s great to have figures of our favorite characters to look at! We already showed you that Cammy and Juri are next up in the Street Fighter world, but before they hit the shelves next year, Chun Li will kick her way into stores in February. In the world of Tekken, Ling Xiayou and Jun Kazama were shown off, who will come out in November and March, respectively. After all of the fighting game announcements, it was revealed that the Halo franchise will be seeing its return to the ArtFX line, which many fans will be happy to hear. Last, a Batman 1/10th scale ArtFX+ from Arkham City was shown off along with an announcement that Arkham Origins figures are also in the works.

Star Wars and Kotobukiya go hand and hand as seen by their new announcement of A New Hope ArtFX+ figures, but that wasn’t all that was new at their panel. Some new merchandise is on the way in the form of Stormtrooper, Darth Vader, and C-3PO business card holders as well as Luke Skywalker and Darth Vader light up lightsaber chopsticks. We also got another peek at Jango Fett and General Grievous, both of whom we got a detailed look at back at Toy Fair. The big new announcement was that the fan choice winner for the next Trooper set is the Sandtrooper and they’ll be coming in two different ways: a Sandtrooper Squad Leader two-pack and a Sandtrooper Sergeant single pack.
The star of New York Comic Con, the exclusive R2-Q5, which we saw back at Toy Fair, was also shown off and an international version with a silver coin was announced. Rounding things off, Jaina Solo and Mara Jade’s bishoujos were shown off and we finally got a glimpse of Mara’s backside, which definitely has the Shunya vibe to it.
