Japanese figure and statue brand Kotobukiya's 1/7 scale Bishoujo statue series are based on Shunya Yamashita's illustrations of various movie, game, and comic characters in the Japanese bishoujo (young beautiful girls) style.

The latest characters to get the Bishoujo treatment are none other than Optimus Prime and Megatron from Transformers!

Details on Megatron will be forthcoming, but we already have an advanced look at the sculpt for Optimus Prime.

When you compare the statue with the original Optimus Prime, you'll notice that his design features have been skillfully adapted and stylized into the costume and hair of the bishoujo version.

For example:

  • His leg parts have been reimagined as high-tech sneaker-like boots
  • His trailer has been reimagined as a briefcase that "perfectly fits Optimus's protective nature."
  • His antennae have been reimagined as hair buns. They're intentionally messy to show Optimus' "unexpectedly approachable side."
  • The statue reproduces Optimus' "I've got an idea" pose, raising a finger in the air to show Optimus' "reliable and heroic" nature.

Comment from the product planner

I want to thank Hasbro and TAKARA TOMY for letting us make this happen. As a fan of the Transformer series, I'm honored to have had the chance to be a part of it. Nothing would make me happier than to see people gain interest in the Transformer series through these BISHOUJO statues. Thank you all for your continuous support!
