Squirrel Girl Archive

  • 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!

  • 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! Check ’em out after the jump.

  • There are always new things happening in the Bishoujo line, but by far my favorite recent one was the announcement that Squirrel Girl was not, in fact, just an April Fool’s joke. And then the reveal of her sculpt, which is just painfully adorable (and right now has one of the best Shunya Yamashita faces Kotobukiya has ever done). We got to take a close look at her at New York Comic Con. The sculpt is so crisp: I especially like her spiky hair, acorn earrings, and (surprise) her little squirrel pal! Because I think 90% of figures would be improved by having an animal companion.

  • Hello Plastikitties, did you miss us? You may have noticed that we were MIA this week, because we’re basically dying from the flu. But not even that can stop us from going to NYCC! Kotobukiya had, of course, a lot of Bishoujo-related merchandise in their booth this year, but they star of the show is definitely their sculpt for Squirrel Girl. This figure started off as an April Fool’s joke, but her art reveal at SDCC showed that they took the fan’s clamoring for her seriously. And how cute is this sculpt?! So adorable, I love her face and pose and basically everything about her. It’s great to see some variety in the line in terms of sex appeal, we rarely get to see figures this cute from Shunya.

  • This reveal doesn’t come as much of a surprise, because it was teased earlier in the week, but that doesn’t make it any less exciting! Bishoujo Squirrel Girl started as an April Fool’s joke but the dedication of fans turned her into a real-life figure. Or at least real-life art, since she doesn’t have a sculpt yet! I’m absolutely smitten with this. I love that they kept her cute and didn’t sex her up too much, plus the pose is to die for adorable. I love kneeling & sitting poses, and it’s something we rarely see in the Bishoujo world so I’m really looking forward to the finished version. [via Shunya’s Twitter]

  • A few years ago, Kotobukiya “announced” a Marvel Squirrel Girl Bishoujo as an April Fools joke. Because, let’s be honest, she seemed like the last Marvel girl who would ever get a Bishoujo figure. And while it was funny, a lot of fans expressed that they’d be interested in the real deal if she was to appear. And it seems like they listened (or are pulling the most elaborate prank ever) because they just teased art for her! Given that SDCC and Wonder Festival are a week away, her art is guaranteed to be at one (if not both) of them. I’m really curious about this one: Squirrel Girl’s outfit is the opposite of sexy, so how is she going to fit into the line? We’ll find out soon! [via Kotobukiya’s Facebook]

  • Kotobukiya has already brought us some of the sexiest ladies from the Marvel universe in Bishoujo form. But there’s been one noticeable hole–Squirrel Girl. I mean, fuzzy ears. A giant tail. A propensity to gnaw on everything in sight. It’s something we all want in our deepest of hearts. Don’t deny it, just embrace the squirrel. Because she’s coming out as a Bishoujo! The art outline is so interesting–I wonder what she’ll look like?? In all seriousness, this is obviously and April Fools joke–but with enough support, maybe Squirrel Girl fans can convince Koto that she’s wanted! [via Kotobukiya’s Blog]
