Kotobukiya revealed on Friday images of its new Chun-Li Battle Costume Bishoujo Statue, and she is a beauty. I am a huge admirer of the Japanese toy maker–especially its line of artful, sexy and beautifully sculpted bishoujo statues. And like most 90s girls and boys, I grew up on Street Fighter II.
So as you can imagine, this new Chun-Li gives me all the feels.
Her revealing battle costume may not be particularly suited for fighting, but it’s certainly aesthetically pleasing and a fun alternative to her more traditional look. Still, this isn’t the first we’ve seen of Chun-Li in black with her hair down. The battle dress is modeled from her alternate costume in Street Fighter V.
I’m a relatively new fan of Kotobukiya figures and up until now have only admired them from afar. But I’m happy to say I recently turned 30 and made the very adult decision of ordering the new Chun-Li as a birthday gift to myself.
She won’t be available until February of 2018, but you can pre-order her here.
