Allow me to explain my theory about Kotobukiya's Bishoujo Freddy photo
Allow me to explain my theory about Kotobukiya's Bishoujo Freddy
by Tianxiao Ma

One preview gallery clearly isn't enough for us to wrap our heads around Kotobukiya's upcoming Bishoujo Freddy figure, so Amiami has provided their own. A lot of people reacted negatively (or with confusion) to this supposed gender-bent Freddy Krueger.

Obviously, this isn't Freddy Krueger. A gender-bent version of Freddy Krueger would be Freda Krueger, and she would still look like a burnt-up freak. This is a Halloween costume! It has to be, as that's the only explanation that makes sense. We all know the saying about Halloween, women, and skanky outfits. Actually, you could probably apply this logic to most of Koto's Bishoujo lineup. So there you go, mystery solved!

Kotobukiya's Bishoujo Jason wants us to know she works out photo
Kotobukiya's Bishoujo Jason wants us to know she works out
by Vanessa Cubillo

Kotobukiya’s Bishoujo horror series has to be the weirdest thing I’ve seen from this company. I had no idea how they would pull off making Freddy and Jason as beautiful women, and after I saw the preview, I had no words. Today, Kotobukiya has given us a full photo preview of Bishoujo Jason, the second release in this series.

So this figure holds both an ax and a bloody machete, and that’s not weird because we know she’s very strong. How do we know she’s strong? Well, just look at those abs!

While she is strong, her homicidal rage has made her a bit too machete happy because all her clothes are tattered and torn. There are even some bloody cuts on her. This figure will measure over eight inches tall, and stands on a small green base. Bishoujo Jason will be available in November.

For a toy collector, if you only attended one panel at last weekend's WonderCon, it was Kotobukiya's Spring Preview. They had licensing announcements. They had prototypes. They had concept art a plenty. Heck, they even had a very generous raffle! So much awesomeness is impossible to contain within a mere one post and thus this panel's summary has been split into two posts. The anime, Star Wars, and gaming news can be found here and the rest will be in part two. For now, don't worry so much about that. Just read on and take in the excitement.

WonderCon 2014: Kotobukiya

Kotobukiya didn't bring much (if anything) new to WonderCon, which is understandable as it's not a tentpole convention in the US. However our determined editor Natalie covered their booth all the same despite being sick as a ...

Kotobukiya releases full gallery of DC Bishoujo Starfire

This has to be one of the quickest figures I've seen from sketch to market. It's no secret that Starfire was pretty much the perfect choice for the DC Bishoujo line, but it looks like Shunya and the folks at Kotobukiya wanted...
