Check out the pretty Kotobukiya Marvel Comics 1/7th scale Wasp 8-inch Tall Bishoujo Statue

Wasp (Janet van Dyne) is a fictional character, a superheroine that appears in comic books published by Marvel Comics. Created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, the character first appeared in Tales to Astonish #44 (June 1963).

"The Winsome Wasp", as she is sometimes called, is usually depicted as having the ability to shrink to a height of several centimeters, grow to giant size, fly by means of insectoid wings, and fire bioelectric energy blasts. She is a founding member of the Avengers as well as a long time leader of the team. The codename of "The Wasp" was temporarily used by Hank Pym while Janet was presumed dead.

Kotobukiya continues their lineup of stylized Bishoujo Statues based on Super Heroes and Villains from the pages of Marvel Comics with Wasp! Wasp is based on a new character interpretation and illustration by master Japanese Illustrator Shunya Yamashita. The statue shows Wasp lightly touching down on a special base designed to look like a splash of water. Wasp looks great in her black and gold costume and iridescent wings. Wasp can be displayed alone or alongside other Marvel character inspired Bishoujo statues from Kotobukiya.
