  • 2018 seems like it is going to be the Year of the Sitting Figures for Good Smile. A shocking amount of their sculpts are just hanging around! I actually prefer sitting gals (easier to display a full shelf with height variety) so it’s good news for me. We saw a few of their figures already, like the ones at Fate/History and Mikus, but we got a lot more. Quite a few of their announcements are now sculpted: the “old” version of Kiss-Shot, birthday Rem, Megumi Katou, the Hot Limit girls (Sonico, Uzuki, & Eriri), Anastasia from Cinderella Girls, Izetta, Phosphophyllite, and Kouhai-chan. But the new announcements are what grabbed my attention. We have a wedding Louise (!! when was the last time she got a figure), Shuvi Dola from No Game No Life, Emilia from Re;Zero, and Akari Kawamoto. Oh, and uh… a Groot & Rocket Raccoon scaled figure. [UPDATE] Added the Your Name duo to the gallery [via whl4u]

  • I have a confession, guys: I am really superhero’d out. There are just SO MANY tv shows and movies (and novels now too apparently) based on the DC and Marvel worlds. I’ve experienced overload and now it’s hard to work up the energy to care about them. But there is one big, sparkling exception to that: Guardians of the Galaxy. Do you know how excited I am for Vol 2? VERY EXCITED. So of course I was hella pumped at the reveal of a Star-Lord ArtFX statue at Toy Fair. Especially because he’s perfect. They absolutely nailed the face, and the detail on the outfit is astounding. And he’s a generous 1/6 scale, so definitely a centerpiece kind of figure. Plus BABY GROOT. It just couldn’t get any better. Unless, of course, they made matching statues of the rest of the cast…

  • I am sure that you, fair reader, are hyped as shit for Guardians of the Galaxy 2. Just like every human on earth. I mean, it’s months away. Mere months away. But in the meantime, we can tide ourselves over with this amazing Star-Lord ArtFX that Kotobukiya unveiled at Toy Fair. This 1/6 scale statue is so incredibly impressive in person. Just look at that likeness! The detail is mindblowing. And he comes with bby Groot, aww. They hope to make Groot magnetic so that he can easily be removed & re-positioned. His release date is set for May, so orders should open very soon! It should look pretty cool next to their Rocket Raccoon, even if the scales don’t perfectly match.

  • We have already seen the big Marvel reveal at this NYCC, She-Hulk (and we’ll be bringing you a detailed gallery of her soon!), but of course they didn’t just have one Marvel figure at the booth. That’s actually kind of funny to imagine: one lone Marvel girl, drowning in a sea of DC Bishoujos. Ahem. Onto the goodies! We’ve got some gorgeous Fine Arts statues, including Maximum Carnage who I am kind of dying to own, the Marvel Now line, Groot & Rocket Raccoon, and some of the other Marvel Bishoujos. Check them all out in the gallery below!

  • Marvel was the first comic company Kotobukiya worked with (yes, there was a time before those beautiful DC Bishoujos!), so of course they always have lots of products with them in the works. The Marvel section of their panel was pretty jam-packed, so let’s just dive right in! They showed off quite a few statues including brown uniform Wolverine, Maximum Carnage, and the new Danger Room Sessions Rogue. The amazing Groot & Rocket Raccoon was mentioned as well, and while they didn’t state it outright there were definitely hints at more GotG figures! Then we got a very exciting new announcement: the Marvel Now line, which started with the Avengers, will be continuing with the X-Men! The lineup is pretty awesome, though I admit I am a bit biased because finally a Beast figure aw yis. They also showed off all the Marvel Bishoujos in the works, including the newly painted She-Hulk.

  • Are you pumped for the Guardians of the Galaxy movie? Vin Diesel as an alien tree with a feisty raccoon sidekick, what is not to love? Kotobukiya has actually been keeping this figure tucked away in the back of their booth until the end of Toy Fair and the premier of the trailer, and I’ve been dying to show it to you–and the time is finally here! This is a 1/10 scale figure, but of course Rocket Raccoon is not exactly that big so it’s adorably tiny! Though Groot is to scale, so you get a big ‘ol head for your raccoon to scamper across. Check them both out in the gallery!
