"A KOTOBUKIYA Japanese import! The popular Marvel Bishoujo collection (combining iconic superheroines and villains with traditional Japanese stylings) continues to bring you the amazing beauties of the Marvel Comics universe as you’ve never seen them before. The line returns to heroic mutants with the beautiful and lethal X-23!" - bigbadtoystore.com
Available in March, we'll be getting this to Ross as soon as she arrives at Dr. Volt's.

Ross' X-23 was an all-around stunner, taking the top spot in May 2011 and riding that wave throughout the Superhero of the Year contest, garnering consistently high marks, and setting a high standard for contests yet to come.
Speaking of high standards, Daniel Heard set the bar impossibly high when he sent in his killer Robin redesign for our inaugural contest in October 2010. His redesign came back with a strong finish for Superhero of the Year, and snagged him the following, both courtesy of Big Shiny Robot! via Dr. Volt's Comics:
DC Direct knocks out some killer action figures, and their Arkham City Robin is a shining example of that.
Not a bad redesign itself, this version of Tim Drake shares some elements of Daniel's Damian Wayne redesign, but is wholly fitting for the dark, gritty Arkham world.
Robin: Year One details the earliest adventures of Dick Grayson at Batman's side.
Third Place Prize
Nipping right on the heels of Daniel Heard's Robin, Sally Felton's Wonder Woman soared to the top of our lists back in August 2010, where she maintained the iconography of Wonder Woman, while sensibly giving her pants.
Courtesy of Scott's Comics and Big Shiny Robot!, Sally walked away with a $30 gift card to Scott's Comics to spend on whatever she pleases.
Again, I'd like to thank our sponsors for their kindness and generosity in sponsoring the Superhero of the Year contest, and everyone who participated in it. I'm sorry it took so long to get this information out there; I will try to be much more on the ball next time!
Hey, it's New Year's Eve! Thanks for a great year! Enjoy yourselves, but be safe out there. I hope to see you all back in 2012!
