Initially Kotobukiya had limited their Bishoujo line to the Marvel license, featuring popular superheros and mutants like Rogue, Psylocke, and Black Widow. Eventually they expanded their offerings to include heroines from the DC universe, and now it seems like they’re taking it in a whole new direction. Several months ago, they debuted a sketch by artist Shunya Yamashita depicting an original character dressed in Ghostbusters attire. It had a few people scratching their heads since it appeared to be an original design, but shortly after, Kotobukiya confirmed the design is being produced as the latest entry in their Bishoujo line, “Ghostbusters Lucy.”  Amazing, right?

People have been drooling over Lucy since she was unveiled, and if you’ve been sitting on the fence waiting to see if the sculpt will be worth your $50-$60, then you’re in luck. Kotobukiya recently released some additional photos so you can judge for yourself whether or not you want to spend the money. Personally, I’d buy it but I’m pretty sure my wife is going to first — it’s just my luck that she’s about as big of a Yamashita fan as I am. BigBadToyStore.com has it available for preorder for only $50, while Urban Collector is listing it for even less. She should ship sometime in August.
