Earlier this week, Japanese art figure manufacturer Kotobukiya revealed two exclusive variants from its Bishoujou statue line, available to this year’s Comic-Con attendees — Classic X-Men Psylocke and Metallic Spider-Woman!
The previously-released Bishoujo X-Force Psylocke statue is re-imagined with a brand new paint job, featuring iconic blue costuming and added pink psychic katana effects that would make Jim Lee proud. Classic X-Men Psylocke will be available at this year’s San Diego Comic-Con in July with a total run of 1500 statues, and a limited number of online pre-orders which are now available for non-attendees through the Kotobukiya website.
Fans of Jessica Drew, however, may be in for a bit more of a challenge. Metallic Spider-Woman – limited to a paltry 800 units – will only be available to 2014’s Comic-Con attendees. Pre-orders are up on the Action Figure Xpress website, but the statue is NOT available for mail order and must be picked up at this year’s SDCC.
Kotobukiya has consistently been putting out some fantastic licensed figures, and its 2014 SDCC exclusive variants do not disappoint. Both statues look amazing, and would be great additions to any Marvel collection!
