Twilight Sparkle Confirmed As Second Kotobukiya Bishoujo Statue
Kotobukiya's original announcement of the Bishoujo Pinkie Pie statue already teased about a complete line, and this week we got the confirmation that there will at least be a second statue in the series! On a Japanese blog's Twitter an image was shared showing that Twilight Sparkle won a poll for who the second figure would become. According to sources, the poll consisted of both mane 6 and non mane-6 ponies.
As seen in the image above, no further information is available on the design or release of the new figure. In fact, we're still waiting for addition info on Pinkie Pie, so we need to keep our patience a bit longer for these very promising figures!
Thanks to Ayu for the info!

  2. Exactly what I thought, next would have been Twilight, then they'll do Rainbow and that's it.

    What a snorefest. I hope those threee are used far less in licensed merch in the next gen.

    1. You need to complain to the fans then as those were the ones voting for who is going to be the next fig, Kotobukiya's bishojo series is always about fan favorites.

    2. Yeah well the fans have bad taste, enough of the same Twilight/Pinkie figures all the time.

      My interest for this line couldn't be more dead. Especially sucks that this poll wasn't available oitsode Japan apparently, so we're stuck with this.

    3. SAME figures?! XD you have NO idea, how these look, do you...? These are on a WHOLE NEW level, this is not the crap that Hasbro provides us sometimes. THIS is real art. you WON'T buy something like this outside Japan, I guarantee you.

  4. Yeah, it does get a bit boring with nothing but the mane six all the time. I love them (especially Rainbow and Twilight), but come on. Don't need to see them that many times. Sunset would be more awesome...

  5. I would be ok if it didn't include the pony version. But at least the human and the pony needs to be able to be displayed separately and not fused together.

  6. I hope it's pony Twilight. The one that brought me so much joy in EG1 and Rainbow Rocks.

    1. I guess these are not the type of figures that come with interchangeable parts (faces, hands, accessories, etc). If it did, it can just come with parts for both princess-twi and sci-twi. But seriously, the only major difference is the glasses.

      What would make this even better is to pair off figures so they can be combined to form a larger scene. It would be weird to put them all together but have it look like they are just posing in front of a mirror and have no reaction to any of their friends around them. And it would strengthen the friendship idea.

  7. The entire area feels sort of like a little park on solarmovies.
