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!

X-23 looks beautiful and deadly in this new Marvel Bishoujo figure:
From KOTOBUKIYA, this Marvel figure is part of the Japanese line combining iconic American superheroes and villains with anime style. Wolverine clone X-23 has never looked better than she does here, standing (crouching) about 6 inches tall and posed with grace and drama, her smile belying the danger of her adamantium claws.

Mystique is one of many Marvel femmes fatale, but she might just be the one with the most widespread appeal.
This Bishoujo figure makes it clear why.
KOTOBUKIYA Japanese import! The popular Marvel Bishoujo collection (combining iconic superheroes 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. Last time we saw the ninja warrior Elektra, and sneaking up behind her in the lineup is one of the most famous, and beautiful, mutants ever, MYSTIQUE! The mysterious blue-skinned mutant first appeared in the pages of Ms. Marvel in 1978, and ever since she’s been making waves. With the ability to shapeshift and mimic anyone, Mystique is incredibly powerful and dangerous. She puts her own interests above anyone else’s and at times has worked on the side of good as well as that of evil. Taking on her natural blue-skinned form, Mystique triumphantly appears in the Japanese Bishoujo (“pretty girl”) style based on an original character reinterpretation by renowned illustrator Shunya Yamashita.

A KOTOBUKIYA Japanese import, this DC Comics Bishoujo figure captures Power Girl and gives her an anime-style twist.
Kotobukiya’s fine craftsmanship is apparent in the heroine’s powerful musculature and costume’s piping, not to mention the way both her cape and hair float in an unseen breeze. Of course, no statue would be complete without a Bishoujo-inspired face, and Power Girl’s is absolutely adorable as she gives you a big smile!
Standing nearly 9 inches tall (1/7 scale) on an exclusive display base, Power Girl was sculpted by Tsukada Takashi.

Kotobukiya presents a brand new 9-inch Wonder Woman Bishoujo statue and its’ absolutely gorgeous.

Following in the footsteps of our post about the Psylocke Bishoujo statue pre-order comes a new pair of in-stock Marvel Bishoujo items: Green Phoenix and a truly impressive, dark variant, the Red Phoenix. Both figures stand about 9 inches tall, at a 1:8 scale with the other Marvel Bishoujo collectibles. Check ‘em out!
An elemental force of fire and life, the Phoenix found a suitable host template in Jean Grey, the X-Man known as Marvel Girl. When Grey seemingly sacrificed herself to save her teammates the alien entity took her place and started a whole new heroic chapter in the saga of the Phoenix. Now for the first time Phoenix is presented in the Japanese Bishoujo (pretty girl) style based on original character art by illustrator Shunya Yamashita.
The Dark Phoenix is a whole new take on the most dynamic Marvel x Bishoujo beauty yet! Floating down out of the sky, she rests on one foot in a magnificent base consisting of a swirling cyclone of flame. With her leg pointed and her arms above her head, the Dark Phoenix is stretched to show off the amazing curves of her slender body while her flaming hair seems to erupt from her head. Wearing an alternate costume in brilliant metallic red and gold, the Dark Phoenix looks too hot to handle.Translucent materials used on various body parts and the flame base further add to the perfect likeness and essence of the character, as does the wicked grin on her Bishoujo-styled face.
