Star Wars Mara Jade ARTFX Bishoujo Statue

A Kotobukiya Japanese import! Kotobukiya’s lineup of Bishoujo (Japanese for “beautiful girl”) statues based on Star Wars characters continues after the highly successful Jaina Solo. With lovely ladies from all eras of the ultimate science-fiction powerhouse reimagined like never before, the Star Wars Bishoujo collection is surely strong with the Force. Coming up next is one of the most popular Expanded Universe characters ever, Mara Jade! Originally an elite operative for Emperor Palpatine, Mara would learn the ways of the Force from Luke Skywalker to become a Jedi Knight and eventually his wife. She has appeared in dozens of novels, comic books, and video games, and now takes her place as a fantastic Bishoujo statue based on an illustration by master Japanese illustrator Shunya Yamashita.

Fiercely independent and confident in her abilities, Mara Jade strides forward into battle with all of her weapons at her disposal. The assassin turned Jedi wears a unique outfit consisting of a skin-tight two-tone blue suit with integrated high-heeled boots and bare arms. Mara is ready for anything with a large blaster in a holster at her waist and a lightsaber held casually in her right hand. She is captured in a walking pose with her other hand held out in front of her, ready to batter her enemies with the Force. Mara shows off the high quality you’ve come to expect from Kotobukiya with a highly detailed sculpt and paint applications, particularly focusing on her beautiful Bishoujo-inspired face and flowing red hair. As an added bonus, you can display the heroine in various ways with or without her removable cape, and she comes with two different lightsabers: her original purple blade and Luke’s original lightsaber given to her in the novels!

Mara Jade stands 9 inches tall (1/7 scale) on a special clear display base that comes with two different film inserts for your choice of presentation. A fantastic addition to any Star Wars or Bishoujo statue collection, Mara looks especially great next to the previously released Jaina Solo!

Next September marks the twentieth anniversary of Hasbro's Kenner The Power Of The Force action figure collection. The line introduced a new generation of children to the wonderful world of Star Wars toys and ushered in the modern collectibles we all enjoy today. Our ever-inquisitive Probe Droid is actively searching all corners of the galaxy to find out if there is interest in products that commemorate this very significant 1995 release.
I'd be into a Hasbro The Lost Line style assortment
I'd love to see Gentle Giant make a Jumbo Kenner 1995 Luke Skywalker
I'm behind both of these ideas!
I got started in 1995, but I have no interest in such a concept.
It isn't for me.
