For this toy review, I’ll be putting the spotlight on one of the figures from the successful and coveted Kotobukiya Bishoujo collection: DC’s Batgirl, who debuted as the first DC superheroine Kotobukiya produced in their Bishoujo collection to commemorate the 75th Anniversary of DC Comics.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with the toy line yet, the Kotobukiya Bishoujo Collection is probably one of Kotobukiya’s most successful and impressive endeavors to date. Kotobukiya teamed up with renowned illustrator Shunya Yamashita for the concept art of the toy line, giving the prominent and well-loved femme fatales and superheroines we know a bishoujo (pretty girl) twist. The incredible anime-pin-up rendition of the characters and their overall quality as statues makes them one of the most sought-after toy lines ever.
Batgirl was a fantastic choice as a beginning to the Kotobukiya Bishoujo’s D.C line, being the iconic and lovely red-haired crime-fighter who functions as the crime-fighting colleague of Batman and Robin since her introduction in the 70s. I have great love for this Batgirl statue, even if she isn’t one of the Bishoujos that are truly my favorites. How can anyone not love Batgirl’s Bishoujo rendition with her sexy costume and alluring pose that’s sure to stop villains in their tracks?
