The Bishoujo fight continues with a teaser for Sakura

Kotobukiya recently posted a teaser for its upcoming Street Fighter Bishoujo Sakura. As mentioned in our Winter WonFes coverage, the figure was on display at Kotobukiya's booth but no photos were allowed. Sakura's illustratio...

We here at Tomopop would like to take a moment to apologize for not covering the artwork teaser for Kotobukiya's DC Bishoujo Raven (of Teen Titans fame). We aren't sure how we collectively missed it and are deeply ashamed to have not given a shout-out to Raven sooner.

Raven will be the second Teen Titan to appear in Kotobukiya's Bishoujo line, following Starfire last year. Of course, this reveal is obviously going to be more awesome. Why? Because Raven. Hopefully Raven will appear in figure form in the near future.

But what's next, you ask? Will we someday see a Terra? Bumblebee? Wonder Girl? Pantha? Bombshell? Miss Martian? Zombie Terra? Only time will tell... although I'd probably write off that last one.

Feel the sting of Kotobukiya's Marvel Bishoujo Wasp teaser photo

Kotobukiya has posted a teaser for its upcoming Marvel Bishoujo Wasp along with caption, "We need a name! It should be something colorful and dramatic, like... the Avengers!"

True believers (and Kotobukiya fans) will recall that the Bishoujo Wasp's artwork was unveiled last year (following a teaser). While there's no guarantee that Wasp will turn out awesome, I have some hopes for when the figure is fully unveiled in the near future.

Hot Toys are rolling out an Alien-inspired female figure photo
Hot Toys are rolling out an Alien-inspired female figure
by Brian Szabelski

Back in 2008, Hot Toys decided to put together a 1/6-scale figure for their Hot Angel line, the She-Predator Machiko. Based on a character from the Alien vs. Predator comics, it turned out to be surprisingly popular ... enough so that seven years later, Hot Toys have decided to go back to the same AvP well and are pulling out an original female character inspired by the xenomorph. Take that, Kotobukiya!

Hot Toys sent along this image, with the news that they're collaborating with a known Hong King designer for some time on the new character. You can see the sketch off on the left side of the image, but I'm not sure yet who the artist is. The prototype makes it appear as if she'll have some sort of xenomorph-styled hemlet and armor, though what her backstory actually is is a mystery. Any thoughts on the design so far, Tomopop readers?

Nendoroid Batman among GSC WonFes teasers? photo
Nendoroid Batman among GSC WonFes teasers?
by Scarecroodle

Good Smile Company has posted some photos of the group getting ready for Summer Wonder Festival and, amid the usual expected teasers, there was at least one complete surprise in the form of an unidentifiable Batman-shaped Nendoroid.

While one can never be 100% certain about anything when it comes to teasers, that certainly looks like Batman's utility belt on an armored Nendoroid with a Batman-esque cape. I would be a little bit more sure about the identity if the gauntlets featured the spikes. However, even in their absence, I look at this Nendoroid and thoughts are still, "Is that Batman?"

Hopefully this mystery fit for a world's greatest detective will be solved at WonFes when this Batman-shaped Nendoroid's true identity is revealed. In the mean-time, check out the gallery for a full image of the teaser as well as a look at some of the other items being teased.

Sideshow Collectibles has unveiled the first image of its newly-announced Premium Format Power Girl and, to the surprise of absolutely no-one, the photo centers around the Kryptonian's cleavage and includes the caption, "Hey, eyes up here," which might as well be Power Girl's catchphrase (or battle cry, for that matter).

Power Girl will officially unveiled alongside a Sixth Scale Green Lantern and Flash at SDCC later this week. Check out the full image in the gallery.

Kotobukiya has posted a teaser for what could be either an ArtFX+ Deadpool. The image depicts the mutant's arm and shoulder as he draws a sword.

Kotobukiya has been top-loading on teasers going into SDCC, including several Bishoujos teased (the Marvel Bishonen line remains... well, not happening). The ArtFX+ Deadpool was announced in a Kotobukiya catalog earlier this year and is the first new Marvel Now! ArtFX+ statue shown since the Marvel Now! Avengers series.

Expect the full unveil at SDCC.

Kotobukiya sets up a sting operation using a Wasp teaser photo

by Scarecroodle

Kotobukiya has released a teaser image for what appears to be a Marvel Bishoujo Wasp sketch along with the caption, "HI! I'm the Wasp! And you've just been STUNG!"

The Wasp is best known for her Avengers affiliation, as she was a founding member of the group and a regular on its roster (despite having yet to appear in film...). More recently she was one of the starring characters in the short-lived Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes (subsequently replaced by Avengers Assemble, which features more of a movie-verse cast). Her powers have included shrinking to about the size of a wasp, growing (up to 40-feet tall?), bio-electric stingers, and the ability to control insects.

This will be the character's first appearance in the line.
