Bishoujo Lady Deadpool

Bishoujo Lady Deadpool + SDCC 2016 photos!

I was 90% sure I wasn’t going to write this post. Most of my SDCC photos turned out to be a bust; in fact I’m still not really happy with the keepers. But between the Bishoujo Lady Deadpool figure and the cosplay, I figured there was something worth posting.

Marvel Bishoujo Jubilee by Kotobukiya

Figure Review: Marvel Bishoujo Jubilee by Kotobukiya

Kotobukiya’s Bishoujo line has been going for a long time – even longer than I’ve been a collector I think. The quality, especially of the sculpts, has been up and down. Some of them don’t do a good job translating Shunya Yamashita’s designs to 3D while others are less problematic (but that won’t stop fans from nitpicking!). Jubilee was released around late December/January, and the promo shots were promising. Last week I finally decided to pick one up now that I have some cash to put into figures.

San Diego Comic Con 2014: Cosplay and stuff

Hey, I’m back! If you’re wondering where I’ve been (besides Comic Con), let’s just say moving in the same week as SDCC means that certain utilities don’t get installed for a while. But now that my internet is ready to go, it’s time to marvel at the sights of SDCC 2014.

Update: And it’s live! Check out Marvel Bishoujo Spider-Woman on Tomopop!

I started work on a review for Kotobukiya’s Bishoujo Spider-Woman, a figure I’ve been wanting for some time now. This one’s for Tomopop too, sponsored by the fine folks at Kotobukiya. It should be pretty obvious why I’ve wanted this figure: shiny, red ass. It’s usually a trademark of Asuka figures, but this Spider-Woman has a great one.

Marvel Bishoujo Ms. Marvel by Kotobukiya

Figure Review: Marvel Bishoujo Ms. Marvel by Kotobukiya

Drawing from that ever-fertile reservoir of scantily-clad, busty women, today I review a figure from American comics. Kotobukiya has been collaborating with Shunya Yamashita and Marvel Comics on their Marvel Bishoujo figure line. Last month their combined talents created Ms. Marvel, a character normally associated with The Avengers.

Marvel Bishoujo Emma Frost by Kotobukiya

Figure Review: Marvel Bishoujo Emma Frost by Kotobukiya

Kotobukiya’s Bishoujo line of figures has been surprisingly controversial. Everyone seems to have a different opinion on whether or not Shunya Yamashita’s style adequately captures the subjects, and on whether or not Kotobukiya did a good job translating his illustrations into sculpture. I liked all the ones I saw last year, but I never liked the characters enough to want to buy them. But a combination of low prices, my love of Yamashita’s work, and my fondness of the concept kept the temptation strong. Finally they announced a bishoujo version of Emma Frost that looked absolutely hawt in the promo pictures, so I went ahead and ordered. Turns out she wasn’t all that I hoped for…
