Hello to you all! I suppose I should introduce myself. I’m the solo runner of this fine blog. I’m Dee. *bows* I have no affiliation with Disney. I do this strictly because, similar to you all, I love Disney.
Okay, I’m a bit obsessed, I’ll admit.
Anywho. This was just to say hello and if you have any questions or need help finding a certain product you saw once upon a dream, I’ll do my best to help you out!
Disney Big Figure Statue - Star Wars Weekends 2011 - Minnie Mouse Princess Leia! with Matching Pin!
Jaina Solo PVC statue.
It’s been a long time coming, but Star Wars is now officially joining Kotobukiya’s lineup of Bishoujo (Japanese for “beautiful girl”) statues! Get ready to see the lovely ladies of all eras of the ultimate science-fiction powerhouse reimagined like never before. First up in the new Star Wars series is ace pilot/Jedi warrior/daughter of Han Solo and Princess Leia Organa, Jaina Solo.
One of the most popular characters in the Expanded Universe, Jaina has appeared in numerous novels and comic books that take place after the events of Return of the Jedi and now comes to you in a fantastic Bishoujo statue based on an illustration by master Japanese illustrator Shunya Yamashita.
A skilled pilot and member of the illustrious New Republic Rogue Squadron, Jaina Solo strikes a casual pose in her iconic orange flight suit, the same outfit worn by pilots for generations (including Luke Skywalker in the Battle of Yavin). But the pretty young Jedi puts her own spin on the uniform, wearing it stripped down to the waist to reveal her tank top. Meanwhile, Jaina holds her helmet in one hand and her flight vest and lightsaber in the other. Like all Bishoujo statues the cute Jedi has an incredible sculpt, with intricate outfit details like folds and straps. The highlight is of course Jaina’s beautiful bishoujo-inspired face.
Standing Approximately 9 Inches Tall (1/7 Scale) on a special display base incorporating the Rogue Squadron emblem.
Not only is Jaina the first Star Wars Bishoujo Statue, she’s also the first Extended Universe character brought to life by Kotobukiya.
Find at most comic book retailers (they can order one for you) or online at many retailers. For example, here for $54.99.
