Doing a little Koto catch-up here. Kotobukiya’s Facebook Page has posted photos of their Marvel Bishoujo Mystique Statue.
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. 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.
Perhaps more than any other Marvel character, Mystique walks the fine line between beauty and deadliness. The self-serving mutant kneels on both legs, seductively arching her back just for you. One hand gracefully adjusts her long hair while the other casually holds a submachine gun… just in case. Highly detailed sculpting brings Mystique’s allure to life, from the subtle wrinkles on her revealing skin-tight suit to the skulls of her belt, the belt sash that pools on the ground in front of and behind her, and the delicate strands of hair that fall across her beautiful Bishoujo styled face. Naturally, Mystique appears in her striking blue skin tone and dark red hair that contrasts nicely with her bright white costume.
Sculpted by Goutaro Takeuchi, Mystique is 1/7th scale kneeling on an exclusive figural base. Capture the elusive Mystique while you can!
