    Throw A Tantrum With Star Wars Nendoroid Kylo Ren

    Kotobukyia Unveils Their Kill Bill Bishoujo

    Kotobukiya is so unpredictable with their Bishoujo announcements! We always know that big events in both the US & Japan will have a few, but they tend to spring totally finished figures on us out of nowhere. Like today, when we’re getting the fully sculpted and painted Kill Bill Bishoujo! Her art was over a year ago, so perhaps it’s not so surprising that we’re getting it before 2016 is over.

    I was really sold by the art, but I’m not sure how I feel about the finished version. I feel like the face is missing the angst and attitude you expect from the Bride. It’s a little too placid for my taste, though I do think the pose & outfit came out looking very on-model and happily not overly sexed up.

    Miyazawa Model Expo Fall 2016: Good Smile Company & Co

    At any event they attend, Good Smile Company and their numerous umbrella companies always steal the show. How can they not, with so much firepower?

And of course figmas too! We had Takao, Iowa, and Mumei on display.

    Max Factory brought their new To LOVEru girl, Yuuki Mikan, and we had FREEing’s bunny Ryuuko Matoi. Last but not least, there’s Phat!’s Parform Hikari Karibuchi and Saber.

    [UPDATE] Added a few stray figures!

    [UPDATE 2] Added one last announcement: 22 Niang and 33 Niang from Bilibili!

    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.

From more weaponry than anyone needs to a fluffy red afro, he’s got it all.</p> <p>But even without all the extras, this is an impressive piece. The pose is super dynamic and the scaffolding base gives a great diorama. I can just picture how amazing this will look on display!</p>

They went for a very different style with her: the face is much more realistic and less comic-y. It’s beautifully detailed, especially given how tiny she is–the ArtFX+ line is 1/10 scale.
