Kotobukiya have been producing G.I. Joe statues in their Bishoujo line for a bit now. They currently have pieces for Barnoness, Scarlett and Lady Jaye. The Bishoujo line is purposely done in an anime style for female characters, as per their description for it:
The Bishoujo Statue is a series of statues based off of Shunya Yamashita’s illustrations of various movie, game, and comic characters in the Japanese bishoujo (young beautiful girls) style. All of these statues are 1/7 in scale and make a great collection when displayed together.
Kotobukiya recently sent us a couple pieces to take a look at. Baroness – in her 25th Anniversary Blue color variant scheme, and Scarlett in a sky blue and silver palette. Baroness also comes (but not featured here) in traditional black and Crimson Guard red. Scarlett has a traditional color version and this one. Lady Jaye, not featured here, is also available via a traditional color version.
All in all they are well done pieces. You have to be into the look, they are very unique and won’t fit in all collections. But if you like to mix it up with different incarnations of G.I. Joe on your shelves, these will add something new for sure.
