DC X BISHOUJO COLLECTION BATGIRL BISHOUJO STATUE
A KOTOBUKIYA Japanese import! Celebrating DC Comics’ 75th Anniversary, Kotobukiya is proud to debut the very first in a new line of beautiful bishoujo-inspired statues, BATGIRL! The DC X Bishoujo Collection combines DC’s superheroines and villains with traditional Japanese stylings. The classic and best known Batgirl first appeared in 1967, the alter ego of Gotham City police commissioner’s daughter Barbara Gordon. Brilliant and courageous, Batgirl helped defend the good citizens of Gotham City alongside her mentor Batman. Barbara comes to you now in the Japanese bishoujo (pretty girl) style based on original character art by world famous illustrator Shunya Yamashita!
A fantastic beginning to the DC X Bishoujo line, Batgirl stops bad guys in their tracks with her sexy costume and alluring pose. Every element of her classic gray, blue, and gold bodysuit has been recreated, from her tall boots to her bat-symbol, utility belt, gloves, cape, and cowl. Barbara stands with one foot resting on a gargoyle, accentuating her long legs, while she slyly spins her cape in front of her. Batgirl’s long flowing red hair is a striking contrast to her dark blue cape, especially as they both frame her beautiful Bishoujo-styled face.
Sculpted by Atelier Bamboo, Batgirl is constructed of high-quality pvc plastic and stands approximately 9 inches tall (in an increased 1/7 scale for DC X Bishoujo statues) with the exclusive Gotham City gargoyle base. Barbara is an amazing beginning to the new line, and you can look forward to more beautiful DC ladies coming soon!
