New Limited Edition Green Phoenix Bishoujo

From Koto's Facebook:

MARVEL PHOENIX REBIRTH LIMITED EDITION BISHOUJO STATUE

An all-new limited edition BISHOUJO will be available for pre-order through select retailers worldwide: Phoenix Rebirth Limited Edition BISHOUJO Statue!

In addition to a change in the costume color from the Dark Phoenix Rebirth BISHOUJO Statue, Phoenix Rebirth has been sculpted with a much calmer expression and pose in order to recreate the “Phoenix” before being swallowed up by a powerful force.

The Phoenix Force has been incorporated into the base and is also a softer color that conveys warmth in the overall statue.

When placed side by side with the now-released Dark Phoenix Rebirth, the tumultuous world of “The Dark Phoenix Saga” is further expanded.

© 2020 MARVEL

Available October 2020.

That looks pretty cool! And she doesnt have that preteen face which adorns the majority of these manga/anime inspired pieces.

I hate when they do this. Especially at the new prices. No chance in H*** I can afford both. I try not to get variants, but I break my rule for different characters, and Phoenix-es(sp?), but not this time.

Welll shiiit ...that looks great. They even changed the flames to a yellow-orange just to highlight the difference.





Might just have to get this, too.

I like the original Dark best, but I could be persuaded into getting this variant... especially if they do the other two, too.

I really like the black and red version of Phoenix with the slight star field in the black portion. Where is the drawing from?

Now I love the fact that Jean is wearing her Marvel Girl/Star Trek/Lost in Space outfit but if she did change her outfit I would like to see her wear this outfit but maybe get rid of the Phoenix emblem. It would still be reminiscent of Dave Cockrum's design but slightly modernized (however I would not object if she did go back to wearing her Phoenix outfit but I really doubt that would happen).

I really like the pose and colors on the green Phoenix. I’m guessing the regular online retailers will have her: BBTS, Ent. Earth, Amiami, KotoUS shop?
