Jason gets a gender swap and statue from Kotobukiya
The Bishoujo line of statues form Kotobukiya gives a different look to favorite pop culture characters. For the Bishouju Jason Voorhees the change goes beyond a makeover.
The Friday the 13th series began in 1980 with murders at Camp Crystal Lake, though it wasn’t until the sequel that Jason put on the famous mask and took matters into his own hands. Through successive sequels Voorhees would leave a trail of bodies from Crystal Lake to Manhattan, hell, and even the future before coming into conflict with Krueger in Freddy vs. Jason. Yamashita and Kotobukiya’s version of the slasher takes its inspiration from Jason’s on screen look but mixes in a beautiful girl in the bishoujo style.
The statue is sculpted by Shunya Yamashita and stands a little over 8.5-inches tall. Available in November 2014, the Jason Bishoujo statue has a SRP of $69.99.
What do you think of this look? as you can see from the last two photos above, there’s also a Freddy Bishouju statues already on the market.
