(also known as CY Girls
or Cy Girls
, and as COOL GIRL
in Japan) is an action figure series by Takara Tomy and Blue Box Toys under the brand bbi collectible, featuring an elite unit of female crimefighters, combining the elements of both a doll and an action figure. In 2004 a Cy Girls
video game was developed by Konami for PlayStation 2.
In Cy Girls' fictional futuristic universe, the Cardinal-Garrison paramilitary group is an elite all-woman team comprises experts in various fields chosen from around the world. It is a secret global fighting organization established to combat criminal conspiracy and activity, rumoured to have come into existence during World War II. Their vehicles and other equipment witnessed at the scene of the incidents in which they went into action bore the Cardinal-Garrison 'CG' logo, and since the existence of Cardinal-Garrison was unknown, the group became known as the "Cy Girls".
CY GIRLS is a series of female action figures created as an action counterpart of Barbie. The products were first manufactured in 2000 by Blue Box Toys with a voluptuous body to appeal to young adult male collectors. Those dolls are now considered scarce and are usually valued at $100-$1000 each.
The second Cy Girls type of variations is known as the Perfect Body Female. These dolls molds were not based on the ones produced by Takara Tomy and instead they were manufactured and produced independently by Blue Box Toys, featuring 24 points of articulation based on the basic design of the Ultimate Soldier. This double-jointed feature on the knees and elbows enables them to be posed in any conceivable position the human body is capable of. It features two interchangeable busts of medium and large sizes with nipples molded on them (the large bust was discontinued and replaced with a much smaller one that was almost flat chested), pivoting ankles and interchangeable hands, designed to hold any weapons or accessory. The products are packaged in a transparent box with a silver painted plastic strip covering the extra bust and the doll is dressed in a grey work-out sports bra with matching shorts.
the game tells the story of CG-1 ICE (voiced by Michelle Ruff), the genius hacker and firearms expert on the mission to destroy an information file in the the highly secure corporate building in Buenos Aires (where she is navigated by her partner Sancho), and CG-6 ASKA (voiced by Mari Iijima), a master ninja with astonishing athletic ability attempting to avange the death of her father in a secret village in Japan (where she is navigated by her brother Kogetsu). While only Ice and Aska are made available as player characters, other CG member also appear in the game.
