Kotobukiya’s Facebook Page has added the first images and info for their upcoming Marvel Comics Fantastic Four Invisible Woman Bishoujo Statue.
A Kotobukiya Japanese import! The amazing Marvel Bishoujo collection (combining iconic superheroines and villains with traditional Japanese stylings) is back and better than ever with none other than the Fantastic Four’s own Invisible Woman! In that series’ first issue in 1961 Sue Storm was a member of Reed Richards’ doomed spaceflight that encountered cosmic radiation, imbuing the four humans onboard with strange abilities. With powers of invisibility and force field creation, Sue became the Invisible Woman (though at first she was the Invisible “Girl”) and a core member of the Fantastic Four! The team’s battles and triumphs over the years has made her into a top-notch superhero, beloved the world over, and now she comes to you in the Japanese Bishoujo (pretty girl) style based on an original character reinterpretation by illustrator Shunya Yamashita.
While she often disappears from view, there’s just the right amount of the Invisible Woman here! The sultry Sue stands on her defeated opponent, shedding her protective force field and reappearing from invisibility. Casually walking toward you with one hand on her hip, the fantastic heroine twirls her long blonde hair with the other. The Invisible Woman is dressed in her iconic Fantastic Four costume, an ultra skintight bodysuit showing off all of her sexy curves in blue and black with the team’s logo on her chest. To highlight her cool powers a mix of clear PVC has been used on Sue’s legs, hands, and hair, while the force field shards around her are a contrasting pale blue. The Invisible Woman’s strong pose and alluring figure are perfectly topped off by a beautiful Bishoujo-styled face that seems shy after her tremendous battle!
Invisible Woman stands just over 9 inches tall (in the current Marvel Bishoujo 1/7th scale) on an amazing georama base depicting the hand of the gigantic green monster from the cover of Fantastic Four #1, “The Mole Man’s Monster!” Get her before she disappears…
