NYCC 2017 Archive

  • While Kotobukiya tends to focus on more US-friendly comic/game/movie toys at comic conventions stateside, they never fully forget their anime & manga fans! This year they had quite a few beautiful sculpts, including the American debut of the gorgeous sculpt for Jabami Yumeko from Kakegurui. Just look at that hair! Also on display were the Fullmetal Alchemist boys, Joker from Persona 5 (who was just released and is in the mail on his way to me~), Victor from Yuri on Ice, and the new beach Lancer (who is definitely not Caster, totally different characters in the logic of Fate/world).

  • I am rarely tempted by event-exclusive PVC figures or statues but I have to say, guys, I wanted Kotobukiya’s NYCC Spider-Man ArtFX+ really badly. He’s got a scarf and a warm hat and earmuffs and my goodness is he adorable! Also toasty. I mean, it was 82 for most of Comic Con (yes, in NYC in October) so he was a bit overdressed. But still cute. Kotobukiya had quite a few other Marvel cuties at their booth, like Bishoujo Ms. Marvel who was just released, and their gorgeous Statue Arts Spider-Man. Also Bish Squirrel Girl, my one true love. Check them out and more in the gallery!

  • I remember the dark times when Good Smile Company didn’t come to US events. Thankfully those days are over, because their booth is usually the toy highlight of any convention! And they really brought it for NYCC this year with not one but two separate booth displays. They had a lot of brand-new goodies, like the Anniversary Miku (look at that hair!!), figma Genji, and the sculpt for the Breath of the Wild Guardian Nendoroid. It’s always nice to be able to see figures in person, it’s quite a different experience–for example, I wasn’t really sold on Marie Rose’s colors at all when the promotional shots came out, but I was totally won over when I finally got to see her. She might be coming to my pre-order list!
