When you hear the word “sexy”, what’s the first image that pops into your head? Ghostbusters, right? No? Well why not?! Are you saying that a bunch of middle-aged guys dressed in flightsuits and spewing witty banter doesn’t get your heart pumping?! Okay, well, now that we think about it… you’re right! In fact, between the constant ass-kickings and random slimings, being a Ghostbuster isn’t exactly the most glamorous of fictional professions. However, Kotobukiya is here to shed a different light on our favorite paranormal investigators with the latest statue in their Bishoujo line – Lucy!
We here at MTV Geek! were stunned by how well this turned out, and now we’re hoping for more statues from our favorite movies to be released! For now, here’s all the info (and a bunch of pics) of Lucy:
A Kotobukiya Japanese import! The Ghostbusters, New York’s very own paranormal investigators, are back in the headlines and this time around they have a new recruit, Lucy. This Ghostbuster-in-training is determined not to let any spook, specter or ghost get past her and she has the equipment to back her up. Outfitted in Egon Spengler’s proprietary Proton Pack and Ecto Goggles, she is truly a slime-eradicating force to be reckoned with!
Standing triumphantly over a ghost trap after bagging her latest catch, Lucy lets loose a smile of satisfaction over another job well done. She rests the wand of her proton pack on her left shoulder while her other hand sits calmly at her exposed hip. Her uniform has definitely seen better days as her pants are torn and tattered from this recent spectral encounter. The standard issue Proton Pack has thankfully remained unscathed exhibiting incredibly sculpted details such as the power cell, crank generator and Cyclotron.
Ghostbuster Lucy is the latest entry to the Japanese Bishoujo (pretty girl) collection based on an original character design by master illustrator, Shunya Yamashita. Sculpted by Masahiro “Gill Gill” Takahashi, she stands nearly 9 ½ inches tall (in 1/7th scale) atop a specially designed base uniquely accented with a manhole cover donning the Ghostbuster logo. When supernatural activity is afoot, this is the gal you want to call!
Available August 2011.
Now, where’s our Janine Bishoujo?!
