A KotobukiyA Japanese import! From the hit manga series Yotsubato! depicting the everyday adventures of the titular character comes a new model kit capturing the quirky young girl Yotsuba Koiwai! Dressed in her usual outfit for a day of adventure, she wears an orange and white long-sleeved shirt, olive shorts, and orange and white shoes. Yotsuba is comprised of 120 pre-colored plastic pieces eliminating the need for painting, and 15 points of articulation and multiple interchangeable face parts with a wide array of different expressions provide for an amazing number of display options! The energetic girl stands nearly 5 ½ inches tall and comes with some really fun accessories like a kazoo, camera, bubble wand, and stuffed teddy bear. Yotsuba makes for a great model kit displayed on her own, and even better alongside the previous Kotobukiya Danbo Plastic Model Kit from the YOTSUBATO! comic series.
Available April 2013.
