Kotobukiya’s Facebook Page has been updated with the newest Marvel Bishoujo Statue. Today we get our first good look at the Marvel Jean Grey Bishoujo Statue.
“A Kotobukiya Japanese import! The next beautiful lady in the Marvel Bishoujo collection (combining iconic superheroines and villains with traditional Japanese stylings) is sure to please a lot of fans. While you’ve seen her before as the Phoenix, the first female member of the X-Men is back in one of her most iconic uniforms, Jean Grey! First appearing in 1963’s X-Men #1, Jean was a young mutant sent to Xavier’s institute. There she honed her powers of telekinesis (and later telepathy) and became known as Marvel Girl, fighting the good fight alongside Cyclops, Angel, Beast, and Iceman. A steadfast member of the X-Men and X-Factor throughout the years, Jean would alternate between her normal identity and that of the Phoenix. Despite many character upheavals and several deaths, Jean has remained one of the most popular Marvel heroines of all time, and now she comes to you in the Japanese Bishoujo (pretty girl) style based on an original character reinterpretation of her X-Men Vol. 2 #1 look by illustrator Shunya Yamashita.
Jean Grey explodes into action, hovering in the air and using her formidable mental powers to take on the enemies of mutants! Her flying pose looks amazing, with the heroine leaning back on one straight leg and one bent, skillfully propped up by her base. With one hand at her head to help focus her powers, Jean points the other directly at her foes with a sultry gesture. The X-Man’s unique costume is perfectly reproduced from the sexy skin-tight suit to the added details of her pouches, belt, gauntlets, and shoulder pads. Even better, the suit is resplendent in gold and metallic blue with accents in brown and red. Jean’s Bishoujo-styled face is cute and yet determined at the same time, framed by her costume’s headpiece and her fantastic red hair that even utilizes translucent materials! To top it all off, you can display Ms. Grey with or without detachable “Psychic Force” effects parts.
Jean Grey stands nearly 8 ½ inches tall (in the current Marvel Bishoujo 1/7th scale) atop an exclusive georama base – a massive smoke cloud from which bursts the X-Jet and a trio of missiles! Jean is the perfect addition to your Marvel Bishoujo collection, and an excellent companion to the Phoenix statues.
