Marik Ishtar Archive

  • Summer WonFest doesn’t officially start for a few more hours, but companies are already leaking some nice info for us so we are kicking coverage off early! Kotobukiya brought quite a few of their ArtFX J figures to WonFest, with a big focus on the Yu Yu Hakusho and Yu-Gi-Oh boys. But of course the big reveals are all those Mariks! Three of them, in fact! And yes, it is three different figures as their teasers suggested. There’s the original sculpt we saw of Yami Marik, an alternate version with his tongue sticking out (much like the alternate exclusive versions of Kaiba and Yugi), and a regular Marik Ishtar (who is topless, whooo!). Sadly, no Bakura in sight. Maybe next time! [via es_series’ Twitter]

  • Ah, more teasers. Kotobukiya doesn’t show off as much as some companies, but we’re still getting a pretty generous peek! We’ll start with the boys (since there are a lot of them!). We’ve got three from Prince of Tennis: Kunimitsu Tezuka, who was announced a while back, is now sculpted and we are getting a full shot of him along with two announcements. He’ll be joined by Kuranosuke Shiraishi and Seiichi Yukimura. It also looks like we’ll be getting a double dose of Marik Ishtar: his figure is painted, but there is also an unpainted sculpt… of him totally topless! Fanservice for the ladies~ Of course there are some female figures as well! The Tomo Asama they announced ages ago seems to be sculpted, and the Kasumi Yashiro they announced a few days ago is already painted. Fast turnaround! We’ve also got two brand new girls: a second Hitagi Senjougahara and Sumika Kagami from Muv-Luv. [via es_series, tenipuri & RED☆STAR Blog]

  • Kotobukiya’s Yu-Gi-Oh line has been on fire with tons of releases: Yami Yugi (review), Kaiba (review), Dark Magician (review), and most recently Joey, who will be on our site again very soon! But there are still two announced guys who haven’t been sculpted yet: Marik and Bakura. Well, now it’s just Bakura because here’s Marik! Or at least Yami Marik. But come on, who likes nice Marik? He sucks. As much as I freaking love Kaiba, this might be my favorite sculpt so far. I mean he just looks so… evil. And I love it! [via 2chan]

  • Kotobukiya’s Y-Gi-Oh lineup has been a wild success. While it started with a sole release (Dark Magician Girl) they quickly announced a whole slew more. Yugi and Kaiba are finished, and Dark Magician we saw at WonFest, which means they’re out of announced characters. Logically, it’s time to announce a few more! We’ll be getting the deliciously evil pair of Bakura Ryou and Marik Ishtar, hopefully both in mega-evil mode. And let me tell you, while searching for a header image I found a LOT of fanart of those two, so I think some fangirls will be very very happy. The third announcement (which most likely will be the first sculpted) is Jounouchi Katsuya, or as those of us in the US know him, Joey! I’m thrilled with all these announcements, but Joey is one of my favorite characters so I am head over heels about his figure. Funny that they are focusing on the boys and totally skipping over the girls, I wouldn’t mind a Mai Valentine! But it’s a nice change of pace–and let’s face it, Yu-Gi-Oh is all about the men (and their sexy monsters). [via es_series’ yfrog]
