• Kotobukiya Jaina Solo ARTFX Bishoujo Statue

      A Kotobukiya Japanese import! 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. A skilled pilot who became a member of the illustrious New Republic Rogue Squadron at the age of 16, 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 9 inches tall (1/7 scale) on a special display base incorporating the Rogue Squadron emblem. Not only is Jaina the first Star Wars ARTFX Bishoujo Statue, she’s also the first Extended Universe character brought to life by Kotobukiya. She looks great on her own, and she’ll make the perfect addition to any Star Wars or Bishoujo collection!

        Hasbro needs to make another Jaina action figure of her like this. I believe they already have some of the right body part pieces from previous female x-wing pilots.

        However, many are going to want Jaina's flight suit buttoned up so she can appear as she should while flying X-wings.

        As for her brother Jacen? Darth Caedus naturally.

        But they both wore all-black Jedi jumpsuits later on, just before or during NJO, and Jaina was not made wearing her tan "Bespin fatigues" style of jumpsuit that Jacen was already issued in.

        In fact, I'm not certain, except perhaps late in NJO, when Jaina wore Old Republic style Jedi clothing like her current action figure.

        But this X-wing figure is awesome!

        Previous licensed Bishoujo figures haven't seemed so Japanese in the facial design, this I guess gets away with it because Jaina isn't visually represented in much. It's a nice figure, not too over-the-top, I wonder if that'll negatively affect sales though since it's a pretty girl without being as sexy as other Bishoujo.

      Independence Day: Resurgence. Not a bad action/sci-fi flick. It had a different feel than the original. Maybe if the producers hadn't waited 20 years?

      Man, those are pretty cool too! Too many great choices all of a sudden.

      Are the NECA figures going to be released in a non-exclusive format?
