Kotobukiya Gives Marvel’s Squirrel Girl the Bishoujo Treatment
Kotobukiya is releasing another in its line of Marvel Bishoujo statues, and it’s none other than Doreen Green herself — the fan-favorite Squirrel Girl.
Squirrel Girl made her first comic book appearance in 1991 as a would-be sidekick to Iron Man, and appeared off-and-on in comics until January 2015 when The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl was released. Now she’s got a new generation of fans, a new design, and opportunities for all sorts of merchandise.
Based on art by illustrator Shunya Yamashita, the new statue depicts the Unbeatable Squirrel Girl and her friend Tippy-Toe looking as adorable as ever. The 5 1/2″ tall statue is highly detailed, right down to her acorn earrings and buck teeth., and comes with a leaf-pattern display base.
Preorders are now open for the latest Bishoujo statue, with units expected to ship out in June 2017. Squirrel Girl and her buddy are available for $74.99.
