Preorders Open for “Cowboy Bebop” Figurine

Kotobukiya has added a new Spike Spiegel (Cowboy Bebop) figurine to their ARTFXJ Statue lineup! The figure line is designed to make Japanese characters more accessible to their fans around the world.

This 1/8th scale figurine is approximately 9.5 inches tall (about 240mm) and can be preordered now through the Kotobukiya Online Store for $149.99. He comes with a few interchangeable parts to help create a more customizeable experience. The solemn face, coatless upper body, and hand holding cigarette parts are exclusive bonuses from ordering through the Kotobukiya store.

“The space western is famous for its characters (as well as the music and action), and coming to you directly from KotoUS.com is an exclusive version of the bounty hunter and former Red Dragon Syndicate hitman: SPIKE SPIEGEL DX VER.! The stylish and cool anti-hero looks like he stepped right out of the anime and is portrayed in a casual pose leaning up against a brick wall. Spike wears his traditional outfit consisting of a blue suit and shoes, yellow shirt, black tie, and gray overcoat. The bounty hunter rests against the low, broken wall while balancing on one foot, the other tucked beneath him. He even turns to give you a sly smile as though to distract from the fact that he’s holding his pistol at the ready! Spiegel’s clothing looks great with realistic folds, creases, and details including his open collar and loosened tie.

Remove Spike’s coat to give him an even more relaxed look, exchange his pistol with a rose, swap out facial expressions for a smile or a scowl, or use the alternate arm to capture Spiegel smoking a cigarette.”

The figurine can be preordered from other sites, such as AmiAmi, so choose whichever you’re most comfortable with if you do decide to pick him up. He will be officially released in June 2017.

Preorders Open for “Squirrel Girl” Bishoujo Statue

mxp5xfj

Kotobukiya has added a new figurine to their Bishoujo line of Marvel Comic’s superheroines and villains! Squirrel Girl has joined the others with this design interpretation based off of an illustration by Shunya Yamashita. The 1/7 scale Bishoujo figurine is approximately 5.5 inches tall (about 140 mm) and can be preordered now through the Kotobukiya Online Store for $74.99.

“Doreen Green first appeared on the scene in 1992, tracking down Iron Man to impress him with her abilities in an attempt to become his sidekick. As Squirrel Girl she has a big, bushy tail, heightened agility and fighting prowess, and of course her signature ability to communicate with squirrels!

Doreen celebrates her squirrel love as she takes a break from her GLA duties to hang out with one of her best friends: Tippy-Toe. The unique heroine kneels on the ground in a super cute pose, resting on her knees and her toes underneath her. Squirrel Girl holds her tiny companion on her outstretched hand so she can gaze into the animal’s eyes, and of course behind her is her massive squirrel-like tail! Her distinctive costume is in full effect with olive tights, fur-lined dark brown boots and a tan one-piece outfit, a utility belt with pouches, and a short leather jacket. Squirrel Girl also wears an adorable headband outfitted with squirrel ears and acorn earrings while Tippy-Toe has her own accessory, a pink ribbon around her neck! Every aspect of this Bishoujo presentation is intricately sculpted and detailed from clothing elements to fur and hair and of course Squirrel Girl’s silly buck-toothed expression.”

This figurine is also available on other sites, like AmiAmi, so pick whichever is most comfortable for you if you do decide to buy it. She will be officially released in May 2017.
