The bottom lip is just an anatomically ----ed. It looks like she has a tube running horizontally through her bottom lip.

Sorry for the rant but I love this line and Koto in general and while I see a comeback in the Fine art scale (prices have jumped there too) here in my beloved Bishoujo scale the pricing have been just outrageous. I mean how long until we are at $150 US? I know the pricing talk is futile and I'm in no way knocking people paying. We are in an overpriced hobby across the board. But man it just seems like these are not giving any value back to the consumer for the dollar.
Totally agree. The price for plastic is bad enough, but all the re-issues REALLY bother me as a collector.

If you spend $150. and could at least get your money back (as a one-time release) that's one thing. But cash-grab Koto has to re-issue everything, so you're taking a hit if you want to sell. It also waters down the uniqueness of your collection.

This is why I’ve stopped purchasing their DC line but nothing’s been re-issued from the Marvel line (at least not that I know of).

"Anatomically inaccurate" is the like the tag line for the Bishoujo line Almost all of their figures suffer from it in one way or the other.

That being said, this would still be decent for around $70-$80 range. Maybe even $90. But, definitely not $130.

Yeah, I'd consider at $70.

I'm so disappointed in my fellow statue forum members. I get all my statue info from here, and nobody posted that the X Force version of X 23 was up for PO. BBTS is already sold out, so I had to pay the extra $15 shipping at Sideshow. So I'm very disappointed in the rest of you . Of course, I'm kidding about being mad, but I am surprised that I'm the first to post about the X Force version.

The X Force version looks great, so now I have to decide if I'm going to cancel my regular version from BBTS since I do not have 2 versions of any of my Bishoujos. She is $10 more than the regular version, which makes no sense because the only difference is the paint job. I'm sure another member will post photos.

They've also revealed an X-Force variant.

On an IG post Koto said it (the X-Force variant) was a Sideshow US release only. Not sure if BBTS ever had it even though it says sold out. Still on pre-order on Sideshow.
