From left field, it's Marvel Bishoujo Lady Deadpool

Well, this is something I didn't expect whatsoever. Kotobukiya has had its weird concepts for its popular Bishoujo line. Sure, there's the oddball, at least to me, of Freddy and Jason, not to mention the MiB Agent. The latest...

Tomopop Review: Kotobukiya's Street Fighter Bishoujo Cammy photo
Tomopop Review: Kotobukiya's Street Fighter Bishoujo Cammy
by Tianxiao Ma

Kotobukiya's Bishoujo lineup seems to be growing by the day. The latest Street Fighter gal to hit the, uh, streets is Cammy. Although she isn't out in the US, she is currently available to import from Japanese retailers.

When a 2D design gets translated to 3D, you'd expect some slight differences. With Cammy, I think there has been a significant shift in style thanks to the sculpt. Whether that's good or bad depends on your tastes, but read on to see what I'm talking about.

Kotobukiya conjures up more Bishoujo, teases Zatanna

Kotobukiya is going to have quite the show for us at San Diego Comic Con. We've already seen the teasers for Street Fighter Bishoujo Sakura. Then there was one for Marvel Bishoujo Wasp. DC hasn't been forgotten as the la...

Next challenger for Kotobukiya Bishoujo is Street Fighter's Sakura

Perhaps you're watching a stream of EVO right now and you're in the mood for some more fighting. While we've seen the release Bishoujo Chun Li and are awaiting Cammy and Juri, how about one more fighter to add to the mix? Kot...

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 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...

Wonder Festival 2014 Winter: Bishoujo Freddy vs. Jason

Back at NYCC, Kotobukiya hinted at Bishoujo Freddy and Jason. This proposal honestly seemed like a nightmare to me, but hey, someone has to like it right? Today, in the mounds of all the hype from WonFes, Shunya himself took ...

Tekken Tag Bishoujo Nina Williams enters the arena

I'm kind of amazed at how many Bishoujo figures that Kotobukiya has released. Of the many releases, I'm most surprised at the amount from Tekken Tag 2. Not that it doesn't have a great roster for release, but that it's gone o...

Tomopop Review: Psylocke (X-Force ver.) by Kotobukiya
by Tianxiao Ma

Psylocke has been a popular character among Marvel Comics fans, although she's probably more known for her X-Men incarnation than her original stint as a supporting character in Captain Britain. While western manufacturers have pumped out a decent amount of Psylocke figures, only Kotobukiya has tackled the character out east. I guess those appearances in Capcom games haven't really helped her cause.

Kotobukiya's latest Psylocke rendition falls under the Marvel Bishoujo brand, and depicts our psionic ninja in her black X-Force costume. Read on to see if the figure is as awesome as being a psionic mutant ninja.

Street Fighter Bishoujo Cammy has a teaser

It's no surprise to many of you, but Kotobukiya's Bishoujo line of figures are one of our favorite figure lines here at Tomopop. As excited as I am for Chun Li, others on staff are similarly excited for Cammy as the second re...

Bishoujo Spider-Woman has first color sample display

Spider-Woman is a character I've never really looked into before. When she was announced, the pose certainly drew attention. The prototype was on-hand at NYCC and it was revealed then that she would come with alternate, maskl...
