Kotobukiya released information about their Evil Supergirl Bishoujo Statue to be premiered at Comic-Con! It will be limited to 360 pieces at SDCC out of a total limited edition of 1500! This will definitely be another item that will sell out at Comic-Con.
A KOTOBUKIYA Japanese import! Coming this summer is a limited edition variant of one of the hottest DC Comics Bishoujo Statues yet! The hit line combining DC’s most beautiful female characters with traditional Japanese stylings has seen plenty of heroines, so it’s time to go bad with EVIL SUPERGIRL LIMITED EDITION! While there have been various incarnations of the character throughout the years, the current one has taken the world by storm. Reintroduced to fans in 2004, Kara Zor-El is the Kryptonian cousin of Superman and has all of the same superpowers. In 2005’s Supergirl #5, Lex Luthor used a Black Kryptonite ray to create a duplicate, evil version of the heroic Supergirl. While the two would later re-assemble with the help of Wonder Woman, Kara’s evil alter ego gained instant fame for her bad attitude and sexy look. Evil Supergirl is based on a design by illustrator Shunya Yamashita, Japan’s leading bishoujo artist known for his art books, video game work, and multiple figural collaborations with Kotobukiya.
Based on the current “New Earth” version of the character and costume and inspired by Supergirl #5, Evil Supergirl arrives on the scene literally floating in the clouds! Dressed in her malevolent two piece black, silver, and vermilion outfit consisting of a very short skirt and midriff-baring top along with knee-length boots, the young Kryptonian proves that bad can look oh so good. Evil Supergirl flies on top of a small cloud formation, twisting to look behind her (and in the process showing off her long legs and just a peek at her silver panties). She’s even joined by an evil, black caped version of her faithful kitty companion Streaky the Supercat! Supergirl’s beautiful flowing blonde hair is further accented by translucent material, and perfectly frames her Bishoujo-styled face with new yellow eyes and dark makeup.
Constructed of high-quality pvc plastic and standing nearly 10 inches tall (in the ultimate 1/7 scale) as she floats on her exclusive base, Evil Supergirl was sculpted by Masahiro “Gill Gill” Takahashi. Limited to only 1,500 pieces (starting with a 360 piece early premiere at San Diego Comic-Con) this dark beauty won’t be around for long!
