Game Bishoujo Archive

  • It seems like we’re getting both extremes of the Bishoujo line today. Cute and creative like Squirrel Girl, and then, uh… boobs. In a move that surprises no one, the next girl in the Street Fighter line will be Rainbow Mika. I wonder if this means we’ll see Ibuki sculpted soon? Let’s hope! I don’t have a lot of love for Rainbow Mika’s outfit (I mean, it’s like Power Girl on freaking crack), but how do you Street Fighter fans feel about it? She’s definitely a neglected character in terms of figures so it’s nice to see her finally getting some attention! [via Shunya’s Twitter]

  • Tali is my favorite Mass Effect girl (though truly Wrex is #1 in my heart), so of course I’ve been dying for her Bishoujo. The announcement, which followed Bishoujos Liara and Commander Shepard (review), had me totally over the moon. Because who doesn’t want a purple, gas mask-wearing alien in their collection? Her art and sculpt were released almost back to back and were followed shortly by pre-orders. I feel like I’ve been waiting ages for her, but it was actually a pretty quick turnaround–it just seems longer because I’ve been dreaming of her since we first found out about Liara. So does Tali live up to my expectations? Hit the jump and let’s find out!

  • We already saw Kotobukiya’s two pieces of Bishoujo news at Toy Fair (the art for Wonder Girl and Thor & Loki), but of course there was lots more–including the newly painted Harley Quinn v2 and Spider Gwen. And my waifu Lucky Chloe. Perhaps most importantly, we got some interesting info about Bishoujo Chucky. A few people thought she was a bit too cutesy for a horror Bish, but never fear! She will come with a second face that’s all scarred/messed up like the real Chucky.

  • It’s no secret that I have a passionate love for catgirls, twintails, pink clothing, and frills. Put them all together and I have a happy heart attack, which was basically my reaction to the announcement for the Tekken Bishoujo Lucky Chloe. And after seeing the sculpt in person? Yeah, I am so on board. She’s definitely my favorite game Bishoujo to date! And now she’s finally painted. Well okay, finally is an exaggeration, since we only saw her sculpt two months ago. But I want her right this very minute! I mean, it’s so pink. So cute. Chloe, you are a perfect cinnamon roll. [via Kotobukiya’s Facebook]

  • The Metal Gear Solid Bishoujo line was announced, with some surprise, at Toy Fair last year. We got updated art in July, and her sculpt popped up at NYCC. Based on past trends, I was expecting her painted around Toy Fair of next year, or maybe a little before that. Turns out it’s quite a bit before that, because she’s painted now! That was some fast turnaround. I guess I hadn’t really been paying much attention to the art, because she’s so much more green than I expected! The clothing, yes, but in my head she was regular blonde instead of olive-blonde. Which is not really a thing, but it is now! Plus she’s rocking some avante-garde chartreuse lipstick. I wonder who makes it? So fancy. I’m still not really feeling how unzipped her top is, but oh my god the base and the dog are still killing me. [via Kotobukiya’s Facebook]

  • Kotobukiya’s newest Tekken Bishoujo, Lucky Chloe, notably wasn’t from Shunya Yamashita’s past batches of Tekken girls. Which means… new characters, new art! And usually some of the art gets made into Bishoujo form, so we will probably see some of these as figures. Which is always exciting, because the Tekken Bishoujo line is one of my favorites, second only to DC. This time around we’ve got 4 new girls: one of them is Lucky Chloe, who we’ve already seen in Bishoujo form. Then we have Katarina, Josie Rizal, and Kazumi Mishima. Honestly, I’d be excited to see any of these in Bishoujo form, especially Katarina: her pose is so dynamic! What do you think, Plastikitties? [Thanks so much to Stuart Cambell for the photos & info!<3]

  • We have already shown you a lot of the important announcements from Kotobukiya’s panel: Marvel and DC, the Thanos sculpt, and lots of Bishoujo news. But of course, there was lots more! And I do mean lots. Let’s start with PVC: they had info on the new Rage of Bahamut figures but, more excitingly, assurance that Vania will definitely not be the last one we’ll see from them. We had lots of Star Wars, of course, and Halo as well (along with an announcement for a new Halo series). There was also a whole lot of Bishoujos, comic statues, Alien figures, and everything in between. And last but not least, they said that they want to hear from fans about future merchandise! So you can head on over to a survey and let them know what you’d like to see down the pipeline.

  • We’ve seen a lot from Kotobukiya this NYCC: DC, Marvel, Star Wars, some new announcements and a whole lot of up-close galleries. But Kotobukiya is primarily a PVC manufacturing company, so there were a lot of anime & manga related girls and guys on display as well! Their Hestia was obviously there (though without her alternate face), along with Ken Kaneki, the Black Butler line, the video game Bishoujos, Trigun, Halo, Alien… and their new Saber. I have to say, in press photos she really didn’t impress me (another standing Saber!) but in person? True love. The sculpt is so crisp, and I’m really tempted to place an order now.

  • I can’t even remember the last time I was this hype about a figure. I already kind of flipped out about Chloe at NYCC, but now we have a super extra detailed gallery of her. And how amazing is she? The most amazing. She is a perfect cinnamon roll. Too good for this world. And also hella detailed! See the back of her jacket? It has her name on it, awww. And the fur sculpt, super realistic. Plus a cute butt. It’s everything I want in life… and more. Okay actually what I want in life is to literally be Chloe. And to have little cat assistants. Livin’ the dream.

  • There are a lot of game licenses that you’d think would be the perfect fit for the Bishoujo line. Soul Calibur, Final Fantasy (in my dreams), BlazBlue, Darkstalkers. I don’t know if Metal Gear Solid was on anyone’s list, since it seemed so unlikely, but here we are! With a shiny full gallery of Sniper Wolf, who we showed you a taste of earlier. I know there have been some complaints about her boobaliciousness but surprisingly I don’t mind them! I know, all I do is complain about boobs and here I’m like “ehh, they’re not floating?” I think I’m just distracted by the pose and AMAZING BASE. That little doggy, aww. So, bets on how long it will take before we get a Quiet Bishoujo?
