Kotobukiya has just announced that the mysterious ninja girl, G.I. JOE DAWN MORENO (SNAKE EYES II) will become a BISHOUJO STATUE, joining their G.I. JOE lineup!
Stay tuned for more information!
The world’s first series of action figures created by Hasbro, G.I. Joe follows a group of heroes in their fight against Cobra, an evil organization plotting to take over the world. In this line of 1/7 scale statues, the colorful characters of G.I. JOE are reborn as Kotobukiya’s BISHOUJO!
This limited edition variant features Lady Jaye, an agent from the global elite special unit known as the G.I. JOE team, dressed in the Canary Ann costume. In this special color variant, Lady Jaye can be seen donning a mustard yellow coverall as she sneaks into the city. In addition, the ketchup-colored military hat adds an additional cute touch to the overall design.
Created through the power of technology, this high quality digitally sculpted statue leaves no detail untouched thanks to the expert hand of sculptor Takaboku Busujima (BUSUJIMAX)! The digital sculpting brings out a realistic look and feel like no other. The packaging of this statue can also be reassembled to look like the original packaging from the G.I. JOE action figures from the past.
The G.I. JOE BISHOUJO series will continue to grow with an extensive lineup of characters, so stay tuned for more updates! Yo JOE!!
Available February 2021.
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.

G.I. JOE LADY JAYE BISHOUJO STATUE
The third character to join the series is an agent from the global elite special unit known as the G.I. JOE team: her name is Lady Jaye! The statue is based on original art by Shunya Yamashita, which was specially created as concept art for the BISHOUJO statue!
Lady Jaye is a professional who can stay undercover in any covert operation with her accomplished linguistic and mimicking abilities! The power javelin and surveillance camera replicas that were included in the original rendition of the Lady Jaye action figure are also included with this statue.
This statue reimagines the olive colored uniform from the original action figure fans have come to love. Despite the simple design of the uniform, the details in the sculpt and painting of the clothing down to the small accessories like the camera brings this character to life.
