Captain Marvel Archive

Sadly, we didn’t get to see the full color version as she’s off at Wonder Festival, but what we did get to see looked quite great! That said though, I’m still not won over by her, just as Leah wasn’t before. The short hair feels a bit too static, the pose isn’t going far enough to be unique, and the rest feels like we’ve seen it all before. Nothing is bad, rather, nothing really wows about this piece. That said, if you’re a fan of the character, this is definitely a great option as there’s not a whole lot of Captain Marvel merchandise out there yet, especially depicting her as badass as she is here!</p>

    Toy Fair 2018: Kotobukiya’s Captain Marvel Bishoujo Gallery

    A few weeks ago, Kotobukiya’s Captain Marvel Bishoujo went up for order, and, today at Toy Fair we got to take a closer look at her sculpt in person. Sadly, we didn’t get to see the full color version as she’s off at Wonder Festival, but what we did get to see looked quite great!

I mean, she’s a badass flying chick with short hair. Played by the always-amazing Brie Larson in the upcoming film, no less! And the art was indeed pretty cool.

I love the colors, pose, and face. I think the whole chest area is kind of weird: her ribs are suuuuper prominent and she’s got the “floating globes” boob dilemma going on. But look at those arm muscles, so good. While she comes in at the standard Bishoujo 1/7 scale, her retail is only ¥8,000 and she comes out in June!</p> <p>Pre-order At <a href="http://www.amiami.com/top/detail/detail?gcode=FIGURE-035994&page=top%2Fsearch%2Flist%3Fs_keywords%3Dcaptain+marvel%24pagemax%3D40%24getcnt%3D0%24pagecnt%3D1" onclick="_gaq.push(['_trackEvent', 'outbound-article', 'http://www.amiami.com/top/detail/detail?gcode=FIGURE-035994&page=top%2Fsearch%2Flist%3Fs_keywords%3Dcaptain+marvel%24pagemax%3D40%24getcnt%3D0%24pagecnt%3D1', 'AmiAmi']);" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">AmiAmi</a> | <a href="https://hlj.com/product/KBYMK-231" onclick="_gaq.push(['_trackEvent', 'outbound-article', 'https://hlj.com/product/KBYMK-231', 'HLJ']);" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">HLJ</a> | <a href="http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10510415" onclick="_gaq.push(['_trackEvent', 'outbound-article', 'http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10510415', 'Hobby Search']);" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Hobby Search</a> | <a href="https://www.biginjap.com/en/us-movies-comics/20072-marvel-bishoujo-captain-marvel.html" onclick="_gaq.push(['_trackEvent', 'outbound-article', 'https://www.biginjap.com/en/us-movies-comics/20072-marvel-bishoujo-captain-marvel.html', 'Big In Japan']);" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">Big In Japan</a> | <a href="http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/Product/VariationDetails/66495" onclick="_gaq.push(['_trackEvent', 'outbound-article', 'http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/Product/VariationDetails/66495', 'BBTS']);" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">BBTS</a></p>

    Kotobukiya’s Bishoujo Captain Marvel Is Up For Order

    As a big fan of both the original Ms Marvel Bishoujo and the new Kamala version, I had high hopes for Kotobukiya’s Captain Marvel. I mean, she’s a badass flying chick with short hair. Played by the always-amazing Brie Larson in the upcoming film, no less! And the art was indeed pretty cool. Shunya was sticking with his newer, slightly-less-pinup style and went for a more realistic body and less cutesy face.

    The finished product is here (or at least orders for her are), and I’m a bit torn. I love the colors, pose, and face. I think the whole chest area is kind of weird: her ribs are suuuuper prominent and she’s got the “floating globes” boob dilemma going on. But look at those arm muscles, so good. While she comes in at the standard Bishoujo 1/7 scale, her retail is only ¥8,000 and she comes out in June!

    SDCC 2017: Bishoujo Captain Marvel

    Kotobukiya always has quite a few Bishoujo announcements and updates at San Diego Comic Con, and our first full reveal is a Bishoujo of Captain Marvel! This is an unexpected but pleasant surprise. Their original Ms Marvel is one of my favorites in the line, and I can’t wait to get an updated version of the character.

    Plus I am very happy they included the short hair! Usually the Bish line goes for sexy flowing locks but I love her more rugged and cool look here. Think we’ll get an alternate hemleted head?
