The second of the three figures I received from a friend is the Bishoujo version of Rogue, by Kotobukiya.
They make some great figures, and I have a few others from other lines that are in this similar scale. It was amazing to me how small these Bishoujo figures were back in the day. The newer statues are much taller.
Unlike the Ame-Comi line, the Bishoujo figures are fairly straight forward representations of the comic counterparts. They have an anime style face, but they stay pretty true to the outfit and overall appearance of the characters. I don’t think there would be much that you could do to upgrade this Rogue. She looks great in her green/yellow X-Men outfit. Always one to stand out from the others as they run around in their blue/yellow outfits. Throw on a jacket and belt and this outfit is done.
She has a great flow in her design. Her hair has the wind blowing through it that Kotobukiya always does a good job with. I love all of the subtle details in the design, most notably the wrinkles in her jacket and boots.
There was another version of this figure, where Rogue is wearing a long jacket and has on full yellow gloves. Another great figure to add to my collection. Up next, we look at the last of the three figures. It was the one I REALLY wanted to get my hands on. Two swords and an outfit to die for.
