Following its showing at New York Comic-Con last month, Kotobukiya has now released full-color images of its Sniper Wolf Bishoujo statue and announced what it will cost and when it will go on sale.
Kotobukiya's Bishoujo statues aim to re-imagine characters in the Japanese "pretty girl" style. The Sniper Wolf character seen here is based on an illustration by Shunya Yamashita.
Sniper Wolf, first seen in the original Metal Gear Solid years ago, is Solid Snake's enemy and a master markswoman. "Sniper Wolf wears her iconic customized green and black uniform that’s open at the chest and her yellow/green hair flows down around her beautiful Bishoujo-styled face (with blue eyes and green lipstick) that looks at you like you're a target," reads a line from the figure's description.
The Sniper Wolf statue is 7.5 inches tall (1/7 scale) and was sculpted by Takaboku Busujima. It goes on sale around the world in July 2016 and is priced at $80, available now to preorder at Kotobukiya's website.
This is an officially licensed product by Konami, which has been promoting it on its social network accounts.
The latest Metal Gear Solid game was September's The Phantom Pain, which received glowing reviews and has shipped more than 5 million copies.
