This brand-new Kotobukiya Japanese import is absolutely to die for. We’re proud to introduce the gorgeous Batwoman designer bishoujo statue, rendered in exacting detail and with amazing aesthetic attention that will make it the centre of your collection. Check out Kate Kane from 2006’s 52 #7, next in the line of DC Comics superheroes and supervillains to be styled according to the Japanese bishoujo tradition.
Renowned illustrator Shunya Yamashita spearheaded the design of what would become this 10-inch-tall or 1/7 scale figure of the Bat Family’s most elegant member. Choose between her masked appearance with a wig of long tresses, or an unmasked look with short hair. Hand outstretched and holding her cape, Batwoman is outfitted in a black-and-deep-red-themed bodysuit, boots, utility belt, gloves and cape.
Snap up this beautiful statue while it’s available!
Kotobukiya is at it again with this imagination of the powerful Kate Kane, a Gotham City superheroine with a key role in The New 52. Here, she is re-created using Japanese “bishoujo” or “pretty girl” style, picturing her almost in flight with bat-like elegance and grace. She is glossy black and crimson, 1/7 scale and 10 inches tall, with a removeable mask and interchangeable hair (short to long or vice versa). An absolutely beautiful addition to any Batwoman or New 52 collectors’ stash, available for preorder in March of next year.
Anything but fragile.
Out of the shadows and into the light, Batwoman bursts from the pages of her monthly comic book series and into your home with this breathtaking statue designed by artist Stanley “Artgerm” Lau.
Limited Edition of 5200.
Measures Approximately 9.6″ Tall
The incredible lead of her own series, BATWOMAN still hasn’t received all the merch she deserves. We’re happy, then, to have this 9.6” figure designed by Stanley “Artgerm” Lau and sculpted by Jack Mathews. Limited to only 5200, it’s a gorgeous item that any fan would be lucky to own. Grab it whenever you can!
Over at the phenomenal blog DC Women Kicking Ass, there’s a great, if depressing, countdown of the unpleasantness (and outright disrespect) that has been the fate of many of DC’s women in this, the year of the reboot.
If you’re a fan of DC Comics, if you believe in equality or if you just want to keep your finger on the pulse and know which DC women are kicking ass when, then you should definitely check this out. It’s a great list and might hold the key to pinpointing exactly what has to change in 2012, as we move closer to a comicverse that is as inclusive as possible.
