You may have seen Andres' post on Friday giving you some quick peeks at Kotobukiya's Bishoujo Liara T'soni from Mass Effect 3 and the final sculpt of their Poison Ivy Bishoujo. Thanks to the fine folks at Koto's booth, we're able to give you additional shots of Liara and Ivy, much to our pleasure and our ledger's dismay.
First up, you can see some of Liara's changes. Her face has remained the same, but there have been some touch-ups on her hair tendrils and the body sculpt as a whole. She really does look a lot better than the leaked shots of her old sculpt, much to many people's delight. She should be in your (and my) hands second quarter 2012. I was also informed that there'll be another couple of Mass Effect Bishoujo figures down the line, so if you have a favorite lady in the sprawling sci-fi RPG series, you'll have a good chance of getting her at some point in the future. Not only that, but if you're a fan of Koto's ArtFX series, they're looking to get a male Shepard out as well. My wallet weeps.
As for Ms. Ivy, the shots taken were purely related to Kristina's interest in the sultry villain. While not colored, what you see here is the final sculpt for Ivy. Combine the sculpt here with the paint job we saw back at SDCC and that's what will be hitting store shelves first quarter 2012. I really dig her jaunty pose and the vines crawling up her leg. Oh those willy tentacles, what will they do next!
Finally, there was a quick announcement about the creation of a Men in Black Bishoujo. Talk about a shock, I don't think anybody saw that one coming! Don't expect to see that one for a while, as it's still in the early stages of development. Anybody worried about less focus on DC/Marvel girls with the MiB and Street Fighter Bishoujo lines shouldn't worry, as there are plenty of ladies that will get their day in PVC.
So what do you guys think? Do you dig Liara's new sculpt? I know that a lot of you guys weren't too hot on the bustier Liara, so does the decreased emphasis on her boobs please you? Also, which of the Mass Effect ladies would you like to see next? Personally, I need me a Tali in my collection, STAT!
