Jubilee Archive

  • <p><a href="http://www.plastikitty.com/?attachment_id=83751" rel="attachment wp-att-83751"></a></p> <p>Kotobukiya’s been on a bit of a nostalgia trip lately, first with their <a href="http://www.plastikitty.com/home/toy-fair-2015-kotobukiyas-dc-comics-super-powers" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">DC Comics Super Powers line</a> and now with their amazing ArtFX+ of the ’92 X-Men. Featuring Cyclops, Beast, Jubilee, and Wolverine so far, these flat-colored figures bring that iconic show from the screen to real life. I really love the color choice here and lack of shading as it fits with the style of the original quite well and I really love that these are all quite whimsical as well. My personal favorite is Beast and his suave look, but all four are quite great, and at about $40 a figure, these are quite affordable too. Who do you want to see added to the line? Let us know in the comments!</p>

    Toy Fair 2018: Kotobukiya’s X-Men ’92 ArtFX+ Gallery

But of course they had a whole lot more at the event! I mean, it’s kind of their signature line, at least in the US market. There were plenty of the older and soon-to-be released girls like Freddy & Jason and Batwoman, along with all those new announcements from the past few weeks: <a href="http://www.plastikitty.com/home/dc-bishoujo-ravens-full-art-reveal" target="_blank">Raven</a>, <a href="http://www.plastikitty.com/home/winter-wonder-festival-2015-kotobukiyas-marvel-bishoujo-lady-deadpool" target="_blank">Lady Deadpool</a>, <a href="http://www.plastikitty.com/home/winter-wonder-festival-2015-kotobukiyas-mass-effect-tali-bishoujo" target="_blank">Tali</a>, and <a href="http://www.plastikitty.com/home/winter-wonder-festival-2015-kotobukiyas-marvel-wasp-bishoujo" target="_blank">Wasp</a>.

    Plastikitty Review: Kotobukiya’s Marvel Bishoujo Jubilee

    Recently, I’ve been nostalgia-ing hard for all things 80’s and 90’s. I put the blame on the recently-read Ready Player One, but no matter the cause I am craving a little bit of 90’s in my life. And how better to get it than with everyone’s favorite mall rat/X-man/vampire?

    That’s right, today we will be taking a look at Kotobukiya’s Jubilee!

    Take A Closer Look At Marvel Bishoujo Jubilee

    I’m pretty sure there’s no such thing as “too much Jubilee.” I mean, we waited a long time for her, and she’s just so glorious. The art was perfect, the sculpt was perfect, and now she’s here. Looking amazing. So, so 80’s-tastic.

    Jubilee has made me crave some Jem and the Holograms Bishoujos. Can you imagine? I can. They’d be the pinnacle of Bishoujo amazingness.

    SDCC 2014: Kotobukiya’s Marvel Bishoujo Jubilee

    Kotobukiya was one of the very few companies to make appearances at both San Diego Comic Con and Wonder Festival. Why do these two events overlap? To drive bloggers crazy, I assume. But it also means that Kotobukiya has to split up the goodies. For example, we get painted Batwoman and Japan gets painted Juri.

    Oh, and they get Jubilee. What’s up with that! We love her more, I tell you! MORE! But at least we can all gaze upon her lovely art together *sob*

    Kotobukiya Is Hard At Work On Marvel Bishoujo Jubilee

    It has been quite some time since Kotobukiya showed off the art for Bishoujo Jubilee–well, quite some time in Marvel Bishoujo terms, at least, because they seem to constantly be the fastest Bishoujos to make it to production.
