@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?

Back at NYCC during Kotobukiya’s panel, they showed off a bunch of new ArtFX+ statues in their DC Comics line including an unpainted Batgirl. Babs here is based on her New 52 design and, I guess was a favorite of both DC and Kotobukiya as she’s the first one painted, and boy does she look great! Her paint is similar to the alternate colorway Batgirl Bishoujo that came out featuring black and gold paint with Babs’ signature red hair and mixes glossy and matte paint quite well. No word on a price yet, but expect her to be in the $39.99 range and she’ll be available to swoop down from the rafters in June of 2014.

Who doesn’t like Nightwing? Come on, he’s awesome. Because he’s an acrobat… who fights crime. If you don’t like him you can just get out of here! So I was excited when Kotobukiya announced an ArtFX+ of him because 1) he doesn’t have enough figures and 2) it’s a super affordable line (I don’t have enough cash for 1/6 statues!).
We got to take a look at him at NYCC and uhnf, I’m in love. I rarely fangirl out for male figures but oh my god Nightwing I LOVE YOU. Though I do wish it was his blue outfit. But come on now, the chances for a recolor are probably really high…. right?

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.

We already showed you the sculpts for Black Canary and Starfire from Kotobukiya’s panel, but that wasn’t all they had. Also shown off was the awesome Armored Wonder Woman, who I really cannot wait for; her new sculpt and paint job are just stunning. Sadly, those three were all that there are, but all three are so incredibly amazing that it’s more of a quality over quantity situation where everyone wins.

There were a ton of new announcements in regards to DC Comics figures at the Kotobukiya panel: they announced a 1/6th scale Wonder Woman ArtFX, a Superman For Tomorrow 1/6th ArtFX coming in January 2014 for $119.99, a New 52 Batgirl 1/10th scale ArtFX+, and a Green Arrow 1/10th scale ArtFX+. Phew! Also shown off was the recently released Man of Steel ArtFX along with the ArtFX+ figures of Catwoman, Nightwing, Shazam, Black Adam, and Supergirl. It was also heavily hinted at that more members of the bat family will be seeing their way into the ArtFX+ line soon — maybe Batwoman or Damien? Last, but not least, they also premiered the sculpt of Batgirl, so be sure to go check that out in the gallery.

I know I was literally ragging on the art for Starfire earlier today but… guys… I’ve already changed my mind. I know! I’m fickle and I can never make up my mind about what I find tacky. Well… I still find her tacky. But we saw the sculpt for Starfire at Kotobukiya’s panel and THAT HAIR.
I mean LOOK AT IT. JUST LOOK it’s so pretty I need her right now tacky or not. I don’t even care if she’s naked as long as I own a figure with hair that gorgeous.

Kotobukiya had a lot of goodies at their NYCC booth, which we will be showing you shortly (though you might have already seen a few if you follow us on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook or Tumblr!), but some of their most interesting reveals were at their panel. In fact, the thing I was looking forward to most popped up there–the sculpt for Black Canary!
She’s been in limbo for a while, hanging out in art form while other Bishes flew through the sculpting & painting stage. But all this waiting paid off since she looks AMAZING. I can’t wait to see her with the real fishnets!

Welp… we knew this day would come eventually. Starfire is far from a main character in the DC universe but she’s quite popular and given her outfit (or lack of one) she kind of seems perfect for the Bishoujo line. Fans have been clamoring for her to join the lineup since it first started, and they’ve finally got their wish. But sadly this is definitely New 52 Starfire–all fanservice, no character.
I mean, come on, even for Shunya this is totally tasteless. She’s straddling a meteor. The pose is just… wow. And the outfit. We can see enough of her boobs, she doesn’t need to squish them together. It’s a shame, because there are some aspects I really like: her hair is gorgeous, and the purple and orange color combo is to die for. But this is one Bish I am not looking forward to.

Selina Briggs is bringing her Jelly Empire back to NYCC this year and she’s decided to bring as much fun as humanly possible to the convention as possible in the process. Set up over with Argonaut Resins at booth #325 some amazing customs will be on hand from the world of TV and the world of comics. First up is The Jelly Empire Time: a custom set of Jellybots dressed up as the characters from Adventure Time! We’ve got Finn, Jake, Lumpy Space Princess, and the Ice King so far and I can’t wait to see these in person.
Next up is The Jelly Empire Adventures Comic done in a similar campy vein of the Adam West Batman TV series and will feature Bat-Tuttz and Jelly Wonder along with The Mad Botter. Last, but not least, is The Jelly League which includes Super Jelly, Batbot, Martian Bot-hunter, Hawkbot, Wonder Jelly, Flashbot and Jelly Lantern and is looking mighty spiffy! Hit the jump for a quick video introducing The Jelly League and check these all out in person from Thursday through Sunday at New York Comic Con!
