Wonder Festival 2014 Summer: Koto Bishoujo Street Fighter/Tekken

Kotobukiya's Bishoujo figures are always a highlight at every event they're at. From the Street Fighter line, Chun-Li is in her same figure pose, but this time she's wearing her pink outfit instead of blue. We also see a figu...

SDCC 2014: Kotobukiya - Bishoujos

You didn't think that I'd leave out the Bishoujos, did you? Of course not, what would a Kotobukiya booth tour be without the popular line of ladies interpreted by Shunya Yamashita? It wouldn't be complete, that's what. And let me tell you, Kotobukiya really outdid themselves this year at San Diego Comic Con. Hit the jump to see the photos we got on the show floor as well as my impressions.

Kotobukia has posted a teaser image for what appears to be a Tekken Bishoujo of Anna Williams along with the caption, "Try showing me a good time."

Anna's teaser joins teasers for a Marvel Bishoujo Wasp, DC Bishoujo Zatanna, and Street Fighter Bishoujo Sakura in a very teaser-filled month.

Kotobukiya redefine the human anatomy with Bishoujo Nina Williams photo
Kotobukiya redefine the human anatomy with Bishoujo Nina Williams
by Martin Siggers

I've had a bad feeling about Bishoujo Nina Williams ever since we saw some brief prototype shots at WonderCon earlier this year. Now Kotobukiya have unveiled a gallery of the finish article and oh my god what is even going on?

Even leaving aside the fact that Nina appears to be presenting like a mandrill, this is one of the most ridiculous poses I've seen in a while. How is her spine not shattered into a million pieces? It's not like I'm digging the other bits of the figure either - the purple camo is pretty flat and dull, and the face is just off enough to look weird. But really, just glancing at this thing makes my back hurt. Talk about twisted.

WonderCon 2014: Kotobukiya's Spring Preview panel, Part 1 photo
WonderCon 2014: Kotobukiya's Spring Preview panel, Part 1
by Natalie Kipper

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 ...

Toy Fair 2014: Kotobukiya

Kotobukiya is always fun to see at conventions because you never know what new stuff they’ll have. Their recently revealed DC Bishoujo Starfire was on full display, and actually looks better in person than those promo ...

Wonder Festival 2014 Winter: Kotobukiya Bishoujo Roundup

Most of Kotobukiya's newer Bishoujo figures were up at WonFes, included a painted Starfire sculpt for DC fans! I think she looks great; her green eyes really stand out, and the sculpting on her hair is awesome. We've seen the...

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: Tekken Bishoujo Xiaoyu by Kotobukiya
by Tianxiao Ma

It felt like yesterday when Kotobukiya's Tekken Bishoujo figures were just a nascent product line. The series has filled out quite a bit since it was first announced, and now everyone's favorite fighting Chinese schoolgirl has joined the cast.

My dream of seeing a Shunya Yamashita-designed Yoshimitsu in a skimpy outfit will probably never come true, but I'm content with the Tekken ladies getting the figure treatment. Read on to see how Xiaoyu stacks against the other gals in the line.

NYCC 2013: Kotobukiya Bishoujo

After taking a brief look around Kotobukiya's booth, some of you were undoubtedly impressed by the assortment of Bishoujo figures. As any good man would, sometimes you have to go back and take a second look. In doing so, I wa...
