Quickie: Mystique as seen by Yamashita Shunya

Mystique by Yamashita Shunya
X-Men: First Class was a rather successful movie which probably has nothing to do with this new PVC figure being released.

Mystique Bishoujo
This is a bishoujo of the popular American character.  It's pretty good, I like it.  It's nice to see a different perspective of characters normally not portrayed in this style.  There is a whole series too dubbed "Marvel Bishoujo".  All characters are portrayed in an anime style including; Electra, Invisible Woman, Rogue, Emma Frost, Jean Grey, Miss Marvel and many others.

Best of all these are officially licensed by Marvel.  What doesn't come as a surprise though is their limited availability and (IMO) steep price.  But I'm sure the price reflects Takeuchi Koutaro's, of Kotobukiya, high quality work and great attention to detail.
