Kotobukiya has announced a new San Diego Comic-Con 2009 exclusive Black Widow Marvel x Bishoujo (pretty girl) series.
The West meets East in Kotobukiya’s latest line of Marvel x Bishoujo (pretty girl) series. Continuing the series of Marvel Comics super heroines presented in the Japanese Bishoujo style is SDCC EXCLUSIVE: BLACK WIDOW, the beautiful Russian super-spy and member of the Mighty Avengers in her staggering new look. This brand new edition of Black Widow has been specially designed for San Diego Comic-Con with a fresh take on her outfit and hair style. The new born Black Widow comes with a totally new blonde bob cut, jacket, and belt sculpt. The item will be exclusively sold at the convention limited to 500 pieces.
Kotobukiya has many years of experience creating anime girl figures and this time by using their full potential and skill have successfully collaborated with one of the most celebrated Western comic Publisher Marvel and Japan’s incomparable illustrator Shunya Yamashita. Fans should be familiar with Yamashita-sensei’s style as Japan’s leading Bishoujo artist, from his art books, video game work, as well as multiple figural collaborations with Kotobukiya. Taking in the essence of what each hemisphere does best at, Kotobukiya has been able to produce a one of a kind Marvel Bishoujo statue.
Deadly and dangerous, Black Widow wears a skin-tight costume that leaves little to the imagination. The shiny black outfit accentuates every curve and the long lines of her legs, which end with stiletto heeled boots. Hugging Natasha Romanoff’s waist is a stylish new belt, and on her arms are golden wristbands. As the sexy spy whips around to look behind her with a pistol at the ready, her intricately carved short bob hair cut floats in the air behind her. Black Widow stands provocatively atop a specially-designed base.
Black Widow stands 7 3/5 inches tall (1/8 scale), and features a solid construction of pvc and abs plastics. Sculpted by Yu Ishii, the super-spy comes packaged in an attention-grabbing window box.
