Kotobukiya Japanese import! Continuing the lineup of beautiful bishoujo-inspired statues combining the superheroines and villains of DC Comics with traditional Japanese stylings is a truly magical lady, the sorceress Zatanna! Daughter of the famous stage magician Giovanni “John” Zatara, Zatanna debuted in 1964 as a powerful addition to the mystical side of the DC universe. In addition to performing on stage like her father, the skilled magician has worked with various versions of the Justice League, Sentinels of Magic, and more with her unique backwards English spell casting. Zatanna appears in this brand new Japanese bishoujo (pretty girl) styled statue based on original character art by world famous illustrator Shunya Yamashita!

Using sleight of hand as well as her considerable beauty, Zatanna distracts you, her audience, as she prepares to pull something out of her hat. The magician looks like she is frozen in mid-performance, wearing her stage costume and sculpted in a unique pose. Zatanna balances on one foot with the other pulled up under her as she leans to the side, dramatically aiming her wand at her outstretched top hat. The beguiling sorceress wears her classic costume, a feminine version of a traditional magician’s outfit with high heeled boots, fishnet stockings, white gloves, a black bodysuit, and a complex top with tuxedo elements. There is an incredible amount of sculpted detail in Zatanna’s intricate clothing as well as her long, flowing hair and captivating bishoujo-styled face.

Sculpted by Takaboku Busujima (Busujimax), Zatanna stands just under 10 inches tall (1/7 scale) on her specially designed display base. Whether displayed on her own or with other DC Comics Bishoujo statues on your shelf, this enchantress is ready to work her magic!

Available July 2015.

A Kotobukiya Japanese import! Neon Genesis Evangelion continues to be one of the most enduring anime franchises in history with some of the most beloved characters of all time... not least of which are the incredible giant robots known as Evas. Following up on the latest version of the Test Type 01 is the next intricate plastic model kit from the series, Evangelion No. 13 Giji-Shinka3! Appearing as a tall, lanky cyborg machine resembling the Unit-01, Giji-Shinka3 is the awakened form of Evangelion No. 13. It has a similar humanoid body with thin limbs, reinforced knees and chest, shoulder extensions, and horned head, but it adds to the alien look with four arms and a shocking white and black color scheme with some subtle red and green accents! The model kit is comprised of over 400 pre-colored parts so no painting is required, and it has an amazing 60 points of articulation for extreme poseability. Giji-Shinka3 also comes with multiple interchangeable hand, weapon, and accessory parts including halos, tendrils, Spears, and more. Sculpted by Yuichi Kuwamura and Shohei Chiba, Evangelion No. 13 Giji-Shinka3 stands 7 ½ inches tall (1/400 scale). Display it by itself or with other Evangelion-inspired plastic model kits from Kotobukiya!
