But, of course, there were still Marvel figures out and about!

Oh, and that <a href="http://www.plastikitty.com/home/nycc-2016-kotobukiyas-super-deadpool-gallery" target="_blank">ridiculous Deadpool</a> and the less ridiculous but still cool Vision!

    Toy Fair 2017: Kotobukiya’s Marvel Figures

    Kotobukiya surprisingly didn’t have that many Marvel announcements this year: just Ms Marvel and the Spider-Family ArtFX+. But, of course, there were still Marvel figures out and about! Mostly Bishoujo, of course, like Loki & Thor, Spider Gwen, and the amazing Squirrel Girl. Oh, and that ridiculous Deadpool and the less ridiculous but still cool Vision!

    Spider Gwen is one of Marvel’s most currently popular characters, so of course she’s taking the figure world by storm. Kotobukiya alone is doing both an ArtFX+ and a Bishoujo version of her! Of course my heart lies with the Bishoujo line so that’s what I am personally most excited for.

    Her unmasked version was out and about at SDCC, looking as cute as ever. I do prefer the mask on (just because the hood lining is so striking) but I love the more cutesy, girlie pose and style they went with for her.

Plus she’s a more dynamic character that gives us something a little different from what we usually see in the Bishoujo line: it’s kind of hard to totally sex her up (not because of the outfit–we saw plenty of that with <a href="http://www.plastikitty.com/home/plastikitty-review-kotobukiyas-marvel-bishoujo-spider-woman-metallic-paint-edition" target="_blank">Spider-Woman</a>), her personality just doesn’t fit it.</p> <p>We saw <a href="http://www.plastikitty.com/home/winter-wonfest-2016-kotobukiyas-bishoujos" target="_blank">a bit of her at Wonder Festival</a>, but of course I was most excited to see her in person.
