We saw the Lex Luthor <a href="http://www.plastikitty.com/home/sdcc-2015-kotobukiya" target="_blank">at SDCC</a>, but there has been some progress since then: Red Robin and Red Hood were out as well! No surprise that for the start they’re sticking with some of the more popular guys–but if the concept art is any indication, we’ll be getting a really great mix–including Bizarro?

    NYCC 2015: Kotobukiya’s DC Comics New 52 ArtFX+ Villains Forever

But of course a booth as big as theirs has a lot more in it! Like a new Iron Man ArtFX and tons of Halo merchandise. They even brought a bunch of PVC figures, which is not something we’re used to nowadays. I mean, they even had a Wonder Festival prototype out and about: <a href="http://www.plastikitty.com/home/kotobukiyas-winter-wonder-festival-2015-teasers" target="_blank">Ken Kaneki</a>! Along with lots of the Cu-Poche line, chopsticks for every shade of samurai, and tons more. Check them all out after the jump!</p>

    Toy Fair 2015: Kotobukiya Booth Overview

    So far we’ve already shown you quite a bit of what Kotobukiya has at their Toy Fair booth: Hulk vs Hulkbuster, new Bishoujos, the Star Wars line, and their new Super Power figures. But of course a booth as big as theirs has a lot more in it! Like a new Iron Man ArtFX and tons of Halo merchandise.

Well, we only got one (and it was at the panel, not the booth!), but it’s a character fans have been clamoring for: Red Hood! I will admit that the New 52 <em>Red Hood and the Outlaws</em> has soured my taste for the character (Starfire whyyy), so I’ll try to think of happier times when we see the finished product.</p>

    Since they have been running through their announced DC ArtFX+ figures rather quickly, we expected to get some new announcements from them at New York Comic Con on the line.

This seems to be a trend: it happened with Sideshow and Kotobukiya, so this doesn’t exactly come as a surprise. The announcements, however, are a mixed bag. Let’s start with the great: the Labbit line looks amazing and I want all of them right now!</p> <p>Their character miniseries, however, has highs and lows. They went with a very cutesy, almost infantile style that works well on some characters (kawaii Superman, ahh!), is kind of horrifying on some (the smiling Joker, nightmare fuel), and is dementedly cute on others (little Deadman, yes please). Others, like Wonder Woman, just look… off. If someone offers these un-blind boxed I will for sure snap up a few (Swamp Thing, come to momma).</p>
