Last month pictures of the early scupt of Kotobukiya's Tekken Bishojo Alisa Bosconovitch figure snuck out on game director Katsuhiro Harada Twitter stream. Now, Kotobukiya has revealed the complete, painted piece on Faceboook.
A Kotobukiya Japanese import! With its thrilling martial arts action, the Tekken series of video games from Namco has been a huge hit with players since the original arcade game in 1994. In the games, fighters compete in the King of Iron Fist tournament for control of the Mishima Zaibatsu corporation, using their unique talents against their opponents. Following up on the capoeira master Christie Monteiro is the second Tekken Bishoujo Statue, Alisa Bosconovich! An android with detachable limbs, this elite and beautiful fighter came onto the scene first in Tekken 6 Bloodline Rebellion and appears here based on an illustration by renowned Japanese artist Shunya Yamashita, known for his video game character designs and beautiful illustrations.
Artificial but stunningly attractive, Alisa fights in a flowing manner that seemingly incorporates dance moves. The android is captured in a unique pose, leaning back on one foot with one arm outstretched behind her and the other held up as though prepared to ward off an enemy attack. Her fighting outfit is recreated with special attention to detail and is complete with purple striped thigh high stockings, tall white shoes, white belt, a flowing blue and purple jacket that covers her right arm, a left arm sleeve, and gloves. Alisa is further accented with four mechanical jets protruding from her back, intricate designs on her belt and flowers decorating her waist, chest, and hair. Like Christie before her, Alisa embodies the fierce movement of the fight through her clothes and wind-swept two-tone hair modeled in clear pvc.
Standing nearly 8 inches tall (1/7 scale) on a special display base, Alisa was sculpted by Busujimax (Takaboku Busujima) who also crafted Christie before her. In fact, the two battling women are designed to be posed together to create an integrated fight scene so make sure to pick up both of them!
