Kotobukiya Marvel Comics She-Hulk Bishoujo Statue needs some work on her facial expression

She-Hulk (Jennifer Walters) is a fictional character, a Marvel Comics superheroine. Created by writer Stan Lee and artist John Buscema, she first appeared in Savage She-Hulk #1 (February 1980). A cousin to Dr. Bruce Banner, Walters once received an emergency blood transfusion from him when she was wounded, which led to her acquiring a milder version of his Hulk condition. As such, Walters becomes a large powerful green-hued version of herself while still largely retaining her personality.

She-Hulk has been a member of the Avengers, the Fantastic Four, Heroes for Hire, the Defenders, Fantastic Force, and S.H.I.E.L.D. A highly skilled lawyer, she has served as legal counsel to various superheroes on numerous occasions.

I don't think we'll see a big screen version of She-Hulk anytime soon and although Kotobukiya has been doing quite an awesome job with their Bishoujo interpretations of Marvel female characters, I think they got it wrong this time. The face just seems off and it isn't a good representation of She-Hulk at all. Let's hope they do something about the head sculpt before releasing it. Otherwise, I don't think there'll be many takers for this product. The body is quite well sculpted though. Just needs improvements on the face.
