    Celebrate Spooktober With Kotobukiya’s Horror Bishoujo Pinhead

    October is absolutely my favorite month, and it’s right around the corner! Fall weather, sweaters, pumpkin spice, beautiful foliage, and of course…. Halloween! Horror! Blood and guts! Spooky movies!! Can you tell I’m done with summer? Only fall now. Only spooks.

    One of my most-anticipated horror-related figures has been Kotobukiya’s Pinhead Bishoujo: which is funny, because for years I insisted that it was an idea that could never be executed properly. When we got the art it turned out that I was horribly, horribly wrong. Now she’s all sculpted and painted and up for order and I am so in love. They really nailed the perfect balance between sexy and creepy.

    Bishoujo Pinhead is priced at ¥11,000 and is slated for a February release. Do you plan on picking her up?

What was on hand at Toy Fair was actually a test cast sample and not even a paint master, so, this is relatively close sculpt wise to what will be appearing in your homes, and boy is she gorgeous! Do note that there’s a few blemishes and breaks here due to transport, which is a testament to the amount of detail and fine sections on this piece.</p> <p>I really love all of the fringe on her clothing, the hand coming out of the floor that she’s standing on, the addition of the book of the dead, and well, honestly, all of it. The chainsaw looks great, her clothes are incredibly detailed, and this is honestly one of the best bishoujo figures I’ve seen yet. Now hit the gallery and get to drool over her too!</p>

    Kotobukiya Gives Us A Sneak Peek At Bishoujo Tiffany

    It’s only been a short while since Kotobukiya showed off the painted Bishoujo Chucky sculpt, but apparently it’s already time for Tiffany to make an appearance! This is a very fast turnaround on both of them, given that the art was unveiled last February.

    We don’t have any full images of her, just this atmospheric shot of the devilish duo. They both look amazing, and I had pretty high expectations for Tiffany given that it’s the same sculptor as Chucky. I bet they’ll look perfect together out in display!
