Marvel Comics brings us the Bishoujo Lady Deadpool statue figure

It’s kind of a dream come true: the female counterpart of Marvel’s quick-witted and sharp-tongued hero back in action! Here’s the Marvel Comics Presents Bishoujo Lady Deadpool statue figure. Wanda Wilson hails from the alternate universe Earth-3010, where she fights against loyalists in a parallel imagination of the United States.

Her long ponytail is ready to whip any back-talkers into shape, and she’s posed elegantly and mightily with her trademark weapons on her back. She stands nine inches tall and is one of Kotobukiya’s finest creations to date. Any Marvel collection is incomplete without this Lady. Grab her now by clicking on the photo below.

Kotobukiya presents Black Canary, Bishoujo-style

We all know that DC would be nothing without its leading ladies. So what better way to celebrate their amazing legacy than with a line of gorgeous statues? New from Kotobukiya’s Japanese art-inspired line is the DC Comics Bishoujo Black Canary statue, a flurry of force that you better look out for.

This nine-inch PVC offering features an aesthetic based on a new character interpretation by Shunya Yamashita. She wears her trademark outfit with leather jacket and fishnets. We’ve got the formidable Raven, too, so make sure you pick up both!


DC’s Zatanna arrives in Bishoujo statue form

Superheroines are a true gift from the universe. How boring and ineffective would it be with all that testosterone trying to fight off all the bad guys? To remedy that, here’s the DC Comics Bishoujo Series Zatanna statue, a PVC imagination of the gifted sorceress that pays homage to her mystic craft.

Here, she’s conjuring up something special. Sculpted detail in her hair, clothing, accessories and unique bishoujo-style face makes her an important Kotobukiya offering that you won’t want to pass up.

Black beauty.

Gorgeous Marvel Jubilee bishoujo statue, designed by Kotobukiya

Possibly the only mutant who can pull off both incredibly cute and incredibly ferocious, Wolverine’s trusty sidekick Jubilee definitely deserves a beautiful statue rendering all her own. And she’s come a long way from being a mall runaway on the pages of the 1989 X-Men comic, eventually becoming the youngest member of the X-Men. Jubilee also went through the crazy ride of turning the world upside down with her pyrotechnic capabilities, only to be de-powered and then turn into a vampire. Phew! We’ll be lucky if our lives are half as exciting.

She is next in the series of Marvel bishoujo figures, released in partnership with renowned Japanese designer toy manufacturer Kotobukiya. Based on a new illustration by master artist Shunya Yamashita, this version of Jubilee is aesthetically stunning in an updated costume. Jubilee, standing seven inches tall, is sculpted by Gotaro Takeuchi from Atelier Bamboo in such a way that’ll make you think that she’s about to release an intense show of pyro plasmoids. Scoop up this “rad” (hey, she is an ’80s kid) statue now!



Bishoujo series aims to wow with new Starfire statue

Continuing the much-lauded collaboration between DC Comics and Japanese toymakers Kotobukiya is their next bishoujo or “beautiful young girl” statue, Starfire! Standing nine inches tall, she is shown with picturesque tendrils of flaming hair gently framing her curvaceous appearance.

She perches atop a craggy rock which contrasts gorgeously with her shapely legs, clad in metallic blue thigh-high boots. They really pulled out all the stops with this one, and if a PG-rated statue with innuendo is what you’re looking for, this Starfire mold is your jam.

This is what we all look like casually lounging on cliff faces. Right?

“Sexy” Freddy Krueger? Bet you never thought you’d see the day

The gorgeous bishoujo series has been a hallmark of creativity for Kotobukiya since it debuted. Now, in a delightfully surprising twist of aesthetic inspiration for their “Freddy vs. Jason” set, Freddy Krueger from the legendary 1984 film offering A Nightmare on Elm Street is getting the bishoujo treatment. But it isn’t in the way you might expect — instead of the gnarled male antagonist seen on the silver screen, Freddy is re-imagined here as a sultry, buxom blonde lady. (I mean, it might have been a bit more entertaining to see a “sexy” dude version of Freddy, but never mind. I guess we’ll have to wait for that one.) She may look nonchalantly blissful, but the razor glove on her right hand shows that she means business.

Talented illustrator Shunya Yamashita and renowned sculptor Takaboku Busujima (Busujimax) are responsible for conceptualizing this horrific beauty, who stands on a “pool-of-blood” base and will look amazing next to the upcoming bishoujo Jason! She stands seven inches tall and is perfect for a chillingly lovely display.

Oh, hey. Didn't see you there.

Juri from Street Fighter is next Japanese import from Kotobukiya

“Bishoujo” is an unofficial Japanese term for an attractive young lady, usually in her teens, and it’s well-known that anime and manga series use this aesthetic to give their female protagonists a timeless, innocent look. It’s far from realistic, but that’s kind of the point, isn’t it? Juri from Street Fighter is one of the latest figurines to be rendered using this type of visual. Her image is curvaceously formed and dynamic, as she holds one leg in the air in a jaunt that can be interpreted as both battle-ready and playful.

Made by Kotobukiya, standing an above-average nine inches tall, and comprising the third installment in their Bishoujo series after Cammy and Chun Li, Juri is both gorgeous and powerful. Sculpted by Masahiro Takahashi (Gill Gill) in her trademark shades of bright violet and midnight black, she comes replete with her distinct battle harness while cheekily sticking her tongue out at you. She’s perfect for display next to your other Street Fighter figures and is available for preorder now, shipping out in May of next year.

The memorable heroine from the Capcom game is the third in Kotobukiya's Bishoujo series.

Batwoman is gorgeously rendered with Japanese stylings in this new statue

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.
