Kotobukiya's Marvel X Bishoujo Collection, a series combining the beauties of the Marvel Comics universe with traditional Japanese stylings, continues with two versions of one of the most popular superheroines: PHOENIX and DARK PHOENIX.
An elemental force of fire and life, the Phoenix found a suitable host template in Jean Grey, the X-Man known as Marvel Girl. When Grey seemingly sacrificed herself to save her teammates the alien entity took her place and started a whole new heroic chapter in the saga of the Phoenix. Later pushed over the edge by those who sought to control her, she unleashed her full power to become a force of nature in the Dark Phoenix, one of the mightiest individuals in the universe.
Now for the first time ever both versions of the character are presented in the Japanese Bishoujo (pretty girl) style based on original character art by illustrator Shunya Yamashita. Sculpted by Koei Matsumoto, both Phoenix statues are constructed of high-quality PVC plastic and stand approximately 9 inches tall (in 1/8 scale with the other Marvel x Bishoujo statues). Both are slated for release this August priced at a SRP of $59.99.
