piratestyle (1 month ago) #2044637She's basically Cammy in a different outfit and basically the dolls outfit Cammy with a mask. I'm not a fan of the idea of using an exclusive of a character to be another character; just make an actual alternate outfit/color and have a different figure for the different character. All the limited exclusive of the line are the same person and outfit as their regular run though so that won't be happening. Having two similar looking characters share the same figure with a recolor is not the same thing as their exclusive runs and I'm sure people would be upset over that as well. I mentioned this on your Spider-Woman page comment, they're different characters so why would they share the same figure even if they look similar? I'd prefer something new and different; if they HAD to make Decapre don't make it a reskin from the Cammy figure...
You know I'm not a negative or hateful person so if they did go that route chances are I would like it too but the other alternatives, Elena, Sakura, R.Mika, Rose, Poison, Viper, Makoto, Ibuki, Karin etc are far more appealing than what is essentially a Cammy look alike.



I agree it’d be better to have new sculpts of new characters rather than just doing “alternates” of the same sculpt. The idea of having two different characters being in the same pose on my shelf does seem kinda off.
I do hope they get around to doing a doll version of Cammy though. That outfit is so iconic to the character, it’d be a shame to pass it up!
And yeah, obviously Elena, Sakura, R.Mika, Rose, Poison, Viper, Makoto, Ibuki, Karin etc should take precedent over Decapre. My personal wishes are for Poison, Viper, and Ibuki.

Turtle_Turtle (1 month ago) #2044367So they recently announced Decapre as the new character to be included in Ultra Street Fighter 4.
Do we think she'd fit well into the Bishoujo line?
She's supposed to scarred under the mask. But that certainly didn't stop them from "correcting" that with Freddy's bishoujo design.
I hope they eventually make a doll version of Cammy, in the blue uniform. Then Decapre could easily be an exclusive/remolded version. Perhaps as one of the limited exclusives we've seen in the bishoujo line??

Edit: Actually didn't mention anything on the Spider-Woman page lol but same thing.

piratestyle (1 month ago) #2032563Rogue, Batgirl, Catwoman just cause I missed them the first time. As for Raven the older comic look (ext link) no doubt is what they will be using as Starfire has her old comic look too and most of the others as well. The new DCnU look has grown on me just not the feathery helmet thing. (ext link) is what she looks like now without it. There will be complaints of both because neither look like the cartoon one people are used to. Unlikely the New 52 outfit will be used as none of the other figures in the line use it. If they made one N52 outfit I would want all of them remade especially Harley! But not really Ivy.

I missed Rogue, Batgirl, and Catwoman too and would love to see them again. Batgirl especially, as it would help round out my Birds of Prey ensemble when Black Canary gets released.

I'm fairly new to this, but do their releases or character selections every intentionally sync up with movie releases? I'm wondering if we'll see another Scarlet Witch around the time Avengers 2 hits.

Turtle_Turtle (1 month ago) #2032153Any particular ones you had in mind??
Also, which look do you prefer for Raven?
I'm guessing if they made her they would go with something similar to the Injustice costume. I'm not too big a fan of her New 52 reboot look.

piratestyle (1 month ago) #2028239There's certainly no shortage of things they can make bishoujo. Though personally I'm just waiting for Raven and She-Hulk, maybe a few remakes of older ones and life will be complete. Ooooh man I can see all the disappointed people's reactions now when they find that the Raven figure will not be the gray skinned little girl from the Teen Titans Go! cartoon everyone has become so familiar with.

Admittedly, I never really got the appeal of She-Hulk, but it's clear she has a huge fan base, so I hope they do get around to making her. I agree it'd be nice to see them remaking some of the older ones. Any particular ones you had in mind??

mintbunny (1 month ago) #2027485I'd KILL for a Kitana.
Also Litchi from BlazBlue. I can't remember anyone from Soul Caliber. Been a while since I played.


Agreed on Kitana. Jade and Sonya Blade would also be good choices.
I'd suggest Mileena too, but not sure she qualifies as a "bishoujo." Maybe if its a mask-on only mold.

Litchi would make for a great figure. The other BlazBlue ladies I can think that would be good are Noel, Bullet and Makoto.

Soul Calibur's cast is constantly growing/changing I think. But the obvious choice for a bishoujo figure would be Ivy.
