Preview: DC Comics Bishoujo Batgirl and Catwoman

My interest for the other Bishoujo statues was piqued because of the Kotobukiya DC Comics Bishoujo Wonder Woman statue (previewed in the previous post) and I found some pictures of the other DC Comics Bishoujo statues - Batgirl and Catwoman.

Celebrating DC Comics’ 75th Anniversary, Kotobukiya is proud to debut the very first in a new line of beautiful bishoujo-inspired statues, BATGIRL! The DC X Bishoujo Collection combines DC’s superheroines and villains with traditional Japanese stylings.

The classic and best known Batgirl first appeared in 1967, the alter ego of Gotham City police commissioner’s daughter Barbara Gordon. Brilliant and courageous, Batgirl helped defend the good citizens of Gotham City alongside her mentor Batman. Barbara comes to you now in the Japanese bishoujo (pretty girl) style based on original character art by world famous illustrator Shunya Yamashita!

A fantastic beginning to the DC X Bishoujo line, Batgirl stops bad guys in their tracks with her sexy costume and alluring pose. Every element of her classic gray, blue, and gold bodysuit has been recreated, from her tall boots to her bat-symbol, utility belt, gloves, cape, and cowl.

Barbara stands with one foot resting on a gargoyle, accentuating her long legs, while she slyly spins her cape in front of her. Batgirl’s long flowing red hair is a striking contrast to her dark blue cape, especially as they both frame her beautiful Bishoujo-styled face.

Sculpted by Atelier Bamboo, Batgirl is constructed of high-quality pvc plastic and stands approximately 9 inches tall (in an increased 1/7 scale for DC X Bishoujo statues) with the exclusive Gotham City gargoyle base.

DC X Bishoujo Collection (combining DC's superheroines and villains with traditional Japanese stylings) continues with Kotobukiya's second statue: CATWOMAN

Following the valiant DC X Bishoujo Batgirl, Catwoman is ready for heroism or mischief (or both) as she stands in a sexy pose.

Clad in her tight black leather bodysuit, the thieving beauty coyly raises one foot off the ground while playfully biting her whip. Meanwhile, the rest of her weapon coils in the air behind her, adding tremendous life and action to the piece.

Catwoman is constructed of high-quality PVC plastic and stands approximately 9 1/10 inches tall (in an increased 1/7 scale for DC X Bishoujo statues) atop an exclusive Gotham City Batman-inspired gargoyle base complete with two miniature cats.

The DC X Bishoujo CATWOMAN Statue is scheduled to arrive in March 2011.
