I haven't been too impressed with Kotobukiya's Bishoujo line as of late, and this Kitty Pryde figure shows why. Amiami's blog has a gallery featuring the painted prototype and something about it doesn't seem right to me.

As for what you see, she does indeed come with Lockheed, who was a no-show at NYCC. The paint job has that glossy vinyl-like finish which is cool. There isn't much going on for the base, and the Bishoujo line is hit-or-miss in that regard. Another thing I noticed: Kotobukiya really likes the one-legged pose. Look back at the Bishoujo line, see just how many are standing on one leg.

The main problem I have with this figure is her face. It just looks weird - a bit too long and narrow. I don't think it's a good representation of Shunya Yamashita's style. I also find the yellow parts of her uniform to be strange. They're supposed to be hugging her skin, but the effect doesn't look convincing at all. Fabric doesn't wrap around a body like that. Then again, this is the X-Men universe we're talking about, so who knows.
