STORM Bishoujo

A Kotobukiya import, STORM looks great as the latest Bishoujo statue. Take a look:

On a whirlwind-shaped base, Storm stands an impressive 12 inches tall as she wields the power of lightning against a foe. This PVC statue figure is based on an original character design by Shunya Yamashita and the costume designed by David Cockrum. Definitely one for X-Men fans or collectors of the anime-inspired Marvel line!

Woman Woman and friends do a Breast Exam Demo

Article by: Erik Davis

In an effort to find new ways to warn women of the risks of breast cancer and to promote routine checks for early warning signs, deviantART artist Halfy took a somewhat unusual approach by creating these designs that show female superheroes examining their breasts for anything out of the ordinary. And while the boys in the audience were probably hoping for something a little juicier here (get your mind out of the gutter dudes!), this is definitely a serious topic that certainly needs unique advertisements like this to get the word out, especially to help educate the younger, geekier females who may be more inclined to pay attention to a campaign like this one.

The statue is the work of Marvel and Sideshow artists and designers Tony Cipriano, Don Rutherford, Anthony Mestas, Tim Hanson, Seth Rinaldi, Mike Allen and The Sideshow Collectibles Design and Development Team. Given the incredible textures on this piece, they’ve really outdone themselves. Even among a line of beautiful pieces, I would say that this Black Panther still stands out.

It’s a great piece for anyone seeking a stunning rendering of a character who is too rarely given his dues.
