Tekken Tag Tournament 2 Archive

  • Well, this was a fast turnaround! We were only just viewing the brand-new sculpt for Anna Williams at New York Comic Con, and she’s already painted. Then again, the Tekken line is the fastest moving of all the Bishoujo franchises so maybe it’s not *that* surprising. While I still really am sad about the lack of a pattern on her dress, the finish between glossy/glitter and the matte of her sleeves makes me a little happier. And real fishnets! Honestly, Anna isn’t my favorite Tekken girl and while her overall color scheme is kind of dull I’m still swayed by the booty. [via Koto’s Facebook]

  • We’ve taken a look at Anna Williams’ Bishoujo already today, so of course we can’t leave her sister out of the mix! This is another Bishoujo I’ve been on the fence about for a while now. On one hand we’ve got an awesome blurple camouflage print, a beautiful ponytail and a butt & thighs that could kill a (wo)man. On the other hand, we’re back to Shunya’s boob & butts pose, and her spine makes my head hurt. Will the majesty of the booty beat out another turret spine? Will shiny latex override the logical portion of my brain? Who knows, only time will tell! For now, check her out in the gallery below.

  • It’s no secret that I was crazy disappointed in the art reveal for Anna Williams’ Bishoujo. I mean, the original Shunya version had that insane pattern on it… and a not-ridiculous pose. I was pretty sure I wouldn’t be sold on the sculpt, which is a good thing since Stephen and I aren’t currently collecting the Tekken Bishes. But of course Shunya and his booty-making skills proved me wrong once again. I mean sure, the pose is absurd and there’s a lot wrong with her spine, but… I can’t resist. The power of the meaty thighs is too strong.

  • Some musical accompaniment I must admit, I was a bit taken aback by the reveal of Anna Williams’ art. It didn’t exactly scream “I am going to kick your ass!” More like, “hey check out my ass.” And at first, I was not at peace with this. But time has passed, I have seen the light (um, sculpt), and I take back what I said. I mean… really now. It’s like she was made for me.

  • Kotobukiya had a lot of Bishoujo teasers lined up for their gaming division: art for both Anna and Sakura, and we had hints that there would probably be a sculpt as well. But boy oh boy did they deliver at this event! The art for Anna and Sakura is out on display (note: right now we don’t have a good angle on Anna, we’re working on it!) and Juri is sculpted and I NEED HER SO BAD. Then there are two brand-new, unteased announcements: Chun-Li will be getting a second, pink outfit and Poison will be joining the Street Fighter lineup! OH HAPPY DAY [UPDATE] Full art for Anna has been added via Harada! [UPDATE 2] Art for Sakura added via Koto {Please note that transphobia in the comments, including use of the word “trap,” will not be tolerated} [via Piziitoys’ Facebook]

  • Well, Tekken fans, the moment we’ve all been waiting for is here! Or, you know, the moment I’ve been waiting for. I’ve been dying to see Anna Williams added to the Tekken Bishoujo line, especially since we have that full set of Shunya art for the characters. But as we’ve seen with Nina Williams, Koto isn’t sticking with the original illustrations–and Anna is getting some changes too it seems! For one, they won’t be recreating the pattern on her dress which kind of bums me out. But at the same time that’s kind of impossible to do on a figure, so I get it. Still… those flowers! She also seems to be in a more action-oriented pose that also isn’t a boob & butt one, hooray! [via Kotobukiya’s Facebook]

  • It was literally only yesterday that we got the preview images of Bishoujo Nina Williams, but since they were from comic shops and not Kotobukiya themselves it was only the front and back angles. Unsurprisingly we are getting the 360 shots today, and it only solidifies how terribly mixed my feelings about her are. I love the outfit, the colors, and the face. It’s so close to the art! But the pose. The damn pose. The close-up back shot makes it clear that human bodies just don’t do that. She’s an Escher Girl. Sigh. In the gallery we’ve included Shunya’s original art of Nina, where she’s a badass holding a gun. Not cheesecake-y enough for Mr. Yamashita, I guess. However, I still like everything else about Nina enough to own her… I am just 100% done with Shunya’s boobs-and-butt pose fetish. [via Kotobukiya’s Facebook]

  • It’s been a few days since Kotobukiya showed us that teaser image of Bishoujo Nina Williams, so it’s no surprise that the full reveal is coming today! It is, however, a surprise that the full shots are coming from comic shops and not Kotobukiya’s Facebook–but they are a bit busy planning SDCC exclusive reveals for later in the afternoon. Exciting! So, Nina. Oh Nina. Your spine is so broken. Shunya, stop it with the boobs & butt poses! I can handle it in small doses, but the pose kind of ruins this figure for me. I love her hair, I think they face is executed really well, her outfit is awesome, she’s got the signature Bish butt, but.. that pose… her poor spine!

  • Back in February we found out that Nina Williams would be the next Tekken Bishoujo to join their quickly-expanding lineup. Figures in this particular Bishoujo category have varied greatly in the time it’s taken to get from art to sculpt, so I wasn’t sure how long we would be waiting on miss Williams, but it seems like she is all done and ready for her closeup! While she’s not one of my favorite girls I do appreciate that she is, you know, clothed, and I do love a good blue-based color scheme. It looks like we should be getting the full reveal very soon!

  • WonderCon was this weekend, and while Stephen and I would love to attend every convention… well, we sadly can’t! But there are always others hard at work pumping out news, so thankfully we can always bring you juicy new info. This time around there’s some Bishoujo updates! The sculpt for Jason Voorhees looks near finished, and we have a rough one for Nina Williams. But the big news is both the announcement AND art reveal for Batwoman! I expected she’d join the lineup soon, seeing as how we already have many of the villains, Batgirl, and the full Birds of Prey lineup. I’m so happy the pose isn’t cheesecake’d up, she looks lovely.
