Motoko Kusanagi Ghost In The Shell Stand Alone Complex statue

By starro on January 28, 2012

The fearsome and beautiful Motoko Kusanagi from the Ghost In The Shell anime series Stand Alone Complex! Kind of odd to suddenly have this (and I think there was another Motoko statue in 2011) GITS statue since the anime ended in 2003, but I'm always happy to see new Motoko figures! There are surprisingly few figures of the Major in this scale given the MANY different toy and statue variations that most anime characters get made into.

Wonder Woman issue 600 Statue by DC Direct! The New Costume!

By starro on November 08, 2011

Wonder Woman, along with Batman and Superman occupies a key position as one of DC's most recognizable superheroes-and is probably one of the most widely known superheroes period. Because of her status as a DC icon, a consistent appearance has always been an important part of the comic book (or any) marketing strategy. However, it can be a challenge to keep characters created in the 1930s and 1940s new, fresh and interesting (and thus regularly marketable)-costumes, stories, and looks change. Everyone recognizes the classic look of Wonder Woman (aka Diana Prince-princess of the Amazons) from the TV show starring Lynda Carter. In the comics Wonder Woman has undergone several significant costume changes over the years-from subtle shifts of boots and "WW" on her top to the dramatic all white 1960s look to the jacket and leotard look in the 1990s by Messner-Loeb and Deodato (which really OUGHT to be collected!). The latest in Wonder Woman's look comes from a major reboot by Babylon 5 scribe and highly-regarded comic book writer J. Michael Straczynski (aka JMS) from about a year ago. JMS "rebooted" Wonder Woman with issue 600 and essentially re-started the character, featuring Diana lost without her memories, the Amazons scattered with an uncertain future and a new unknown menace. Comic book artist and DC big wig Jim Lee (X-Men, Wildcats, etc.) redesigned the Wonder Woman costume, returning her to the 90s look with jacket and suddenly with proper PANTS! This design has carried over to the new look as part of the "new 52" DC reboot!

Kotobukiya Ghostbusters Bishoujo LUCY!

By starro on October 30, 2011

Just in time for Halloween is a review of the new Kotobukiya Ghostbusters statue! New to 2011 is Shunya Yamashita's unique new addition to the Ghostbusters mythos-LUCY! Ghostbusters has been getting a LOT of play in the 2ndary geek media of late, with Mattel developing their action figure line and other Ghostbusters related props and serious, ongoing talk of a 3rd Ghostbusters movie. Now we have Kotobukiya's awesome new addition. Obviously, Lucy represents a departure from the traditional super-hero interpretations but a welcome addition! How many other great female movie franchise characters could we get? Indiana Jones? Star Trek?

Ame Comi Heroine series Wonder Woman version 3!

By starro on September 25, 2011

Wonder Woman, in addition to Batman and Superman, is one of DC Comics' "big three". She is one of their most recognizable heroes and probably one of THE most recognizable superheroes in the western world. Wonder Woman was first published in All Star Comics # 8, in 1941, by famed psychologist William Moulton Marston. Over the years, Wonder Woman has had innumerable costume changes, continuity ret-cons, story mandated costume variation (e.g., armor vs normal outfit), media versions (TV, cartoons, etc) and parallel origin stories to go along with new generations of readers. The Ame-Comi figure line reimagines DC characters in an anime context and given that Wonder Woman is one of DC's most versatile and well-known characters. It comes as no surprise that she should be the most re-imagined of the Ame-Comi pantheon. This version is the 3rd and takes a more futuristic take on the character.

Ame Comi Heroine series Big Barda!

By starro on September 20, 2011

Big Barda (along with Wonder Woman ver. 3-review forthcoming!) is the latest to be given the Ame-Comi treatment! The Ame-Comi artists have reinterpreted her as a space pirate as quoted from the box: "Big Barda and her Female Furies set sail across the sea of space, looking for a life of adventure away from Apokolips. As an interstellar pirate gang aboard their cruiser the Scott Free, Barda's gang is wanted in every solar system. Catch them if you can!" In classic DC continuity, Big Barda is a part of the Jack Kirby "4th World" mythology. Barda is married to Scott Free-aka Mr. Miracle the World's Greatest Escape Artist. She compliments his agility and tenacity with strength and invulnerability. They are part of the New Gods, the benevolent cosmic deities that counter the dark evil of the dark god Darkseid and his minions on the planet Apokolips. Big Barda has had several "looks" over the years, most recently with her big blue battle armor/helmet. But many treatments, including the Batman Beyond version prefer Barda in the "red bikini" version shown here. It is this version that seems to be the inspiration for the Ame-Comi Big Barda.

Jesse Quick as the Flash

By starro on August 06, 2011

Jesse Quick (identified on the box as the Flash) is a relatively new character in the DC Flash pantheon of characters-but she follows the legacy of one of DC’s oldest speedsters-the 1940s Johnny Quick. Jesse Quick’s powers come from reciting the formula “3x2(9y2)4A” enabling her to tap into the Speed Force, the omnipresent source which powers all of the speedsters in the DC Universe. Jesse Quick has been a member of several groups as she’s grown up through the years. She was a member of Young Justice early on, followed by the Justice Society of America and the current incarnation of the Justice League of America.

Black Cat

By starro on May 22, 2011

The Black Cat (aka Felicia Hardy) was introduced in the late 1970s as a female adversary for Spider-Man.

Ms. Marvel

By starro on May 20, 2011

Ms. Marvel Ms. Marvel (aka Carol Danvers) was a classic Bronze-age Marvel superhero. She was originally created as a female version of the Kree hero Captain Marvel but has since evolved throughout the years to become one of the premier characters in Marvel's best selling Avengers books (Captain Marvel himself has since died). Over the years, Ms. Marvel has had prominent appearances in the Avengers and the X-Men, changing costumes, powers and has had an evolving origin story.Her identity as "Binary", an identity she had during her time with the X-Men will be one of the forthcoming variants of this statue, as seen here.

Hawkgirl

By starro on September 02, 2009

One of the newest additions to the Ame-Comi heroine series, Hawkgirl. This statue captures the likeness of the newest incarnation of Hawkgirl aka Kendra Saunders. Kendra/Hawkgirl was introduced in the early 1990's in the Geoff Johns/David Goyer Justice Society of America reboot and is the reincarnated wife of DC hero Hawkman. Both Hawkman and Hawkgirl are reincarnated Egyptian royalty-and trust me, it’s a LONG story.

Asuka Langley Soryu

By EVA_Unit_4A on December 29, 2008

In 2015, Earth is under attack from mysterious, powerful beings called Angels. Their origins and goals are unknown, but the focus of their attacks are on the post-apocalyptic, high-tech metropolis of Tokyo-3- a city designed to be a hidden fortress for the secret headquarters of the United Nations special organization NERV. What makes the Angels such an imposing threat is their ability to project and manipulate AT Fields- natural, invisible, omni-directional defensive shields which cannot be penetrated by any physical attack or weapon, including the most powerful N2 bomb. Learning of the Angels’ existence years earlier, NERV constructed a small group of advanced biomechanical robots called Evangelions to fight the Angels. However, only 14 year old children are capable of merging their minds on a near-spiritual level with the 700’-tall armored humanoids. Shinji Ikari is only one of a select handful who has been able to accomplish this. ...But he does not care. He has been push aside and ignored ever since his father abandoned him when he was four years old. And he does not care if he dies or lives, or if humanity dies or lives. Together with two female pilots in their own EVA Units- the confident, confusing redhead Asuka Langley Souryu; and the curiously silent, red-eyed, blue-haired Rei Ayanami- the abandoned son of NERV’s Supreme-Commander must face his inner demons and find the courage to go on protecting humanity while fighting to preserve what little is left of his own!

Motoko Kusanagi

By JoshB on August 26, 2008

Motoko Kusanagi is the heroine of the animated series "Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex". Does she really need an introduction? If you haven't watched the series, I highly recommend it - it's much better than the movies.
