I never liked the quality of Bombshells line but when I saw Katana I genuinly fell in love. Sadly I was running low on money when she came out so I had to pass on her and she quickly sold out. But few days ago she reappeared in listing of a distributor for Europe. So I didn't hesitate and quickly ordered her. It turned out I managed to grab the last piece She is simply beyond amazing and actually one of my favourites in my collection. I took some pictures during the weekend (nowhere near the stellar pictures from desertdragon - amazing work man!). Damn I am so happy right now!

Well, Katana was sculpted by Jack Mathews, who has sculpted most of the Cover Girls statues. He also sculpted the Bombshells busts. I think he sculpts prettier female faces than many other sculptors.

I highly doubt she is "sold out." That was the first batch.

I think the newer bombshells have better paint. My frost variant is flawless.

All of three major distributors here in Europe has removed her from listings. There isn't a single shop in my country that would have her on stock. So all channels I use to buy from are sold out

Yes, it is true that it is possible to order her from UK or German Amazon but that would be too expensive since I am not willing to pay $160 for a statue like this (no matter how gorgeous looking she is).

VS she is such a beauty. I have not seen a bad foto. I accidentally broke a piece of her skirt on her leg so just be careful where you place you hands inserting her into the slots on the base

Yeah, unfortunately with some of these Bombshells are hard to find or very expensive. Best of luck on your quest.
