?This might appear to be mere artwork of a sexy Ghostbuster girl (Ghostbustress?) but in fact it’s the design for an actual statuette (ToyNewsI has pics of the unpainted prototype) due out in August from Kotobukiya as part of their Bishoujo line, the one that does the sexy-anime Marvel and DC superheroines. Anime nerds like myself might notice that the girl is supposed to Ghostbusters receptionist Janine, as processed through the sexy-anime-factory. Regular nerds also marginally like myself might feel that making Annie Potts’ not-especially-sexy character into an anime hottie wearing the sexily tattered remnants of a Ghostbusters uniform is inappropriate, to which I say HOLY FUCK IT’S A STATUE OF A SEXY ANIME GHOSTBUSTER YOU SHUT THE FUCK UP I’VE BEEN WAITING ALL MY LIFE FOR THIS THING AND I DIDN’T EVEN KNOW IT AAAARARRRGGGGH.

He brought the site to prominence with “nerd news, humor and self-loathing” as its motto, raising it from total internet obscurity to a readership in the millions, with help from his savage “FAQ” movie reviews and Fan Fiction Fridays. Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others.

Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
