G.I. Joe is as iconic as other hit franchises like He-Man and Transformers. This hit franchise came in with the wave of the 80s and is still loved by many toy collectors and fans to this day. This time it is something a little different as Kotobukiya has announced their third character release in their G.I. Joe Bishoujo statue line. Lady Jaye makes her appearance and is ready to take on Cobra all by herself. The paint and the styling are supposedly based on the original colors from the old school G.I. Joe’s. It does mention that the packaging is based on the old GI Joe packaging as well and I wish we were able to get pictures of that too. The detail itself is as you would expect from a Japanese statue so it is slightly anime-based but it really pulls it together with this American and Japanese collaboration. Whether you’re a fan of the G.I. Joe series or the Bishouja statue line Lady Jaye can add some love and war to your collection.
The G.I. Joe Lady Jaye Bishojo Statue from Kotobukiya is set to release May 2020. This American Hero is priced at $114.99 and pre-orders for her are already live in awaiting your command here. Look out for more G.I. Joe characters that are set to be coming soon to the Kotobukiya line.
The world’s first series of action figures created by Hasbro, G.I. Joe follows a group of heroes in their fight against Cobra, an evil organization plotting to take over the world. In this line of 1/7 scale statues, the colorful characters of G.I. JOE are reborn as Kotobukiya’s BISHOUJO!
The third character to join the series is an agent from the global elite special unit known as the G.I. JOE team: her name is Lady Jaye! The statue is based on original art by Shunya Yamashita, which was specially created as concept art for the BISHOUJO statue!
Lady Jaye is a professional who can stay undercover in any covert operation with her accomplished linguistic and mimicking abilities! The power javelin and surveillance camera replicas that were included in the original rendition of the Lady Jaye action figure are also included with this statue.
This statue reimagines the olive colored uniform from the original action figure fans have come to love. Despite the simple design of the uniform, the details in the sculpt and painting of the clothing down to the small accessories like the camera brings this character to life.
Created through the power of technology, this high quality digitally sculpted statue leaves no detail untouched thanks to the expert hand of sculptor Takaboku Busujima (BUSUJIMAX)! The digital sculpting brings out a realistic look and feel like no other. The packaging of this statue can also be reassembled to look like the original packaging from the G.I. JOE action figures from the past.
The G.I. JOE BISHOUJO series will continue to grow with an extensive lineup of characters, so stay tuned for more updates! Go JOE!!
