DC Comics Catwoman by Kotokubiya
This figure is part of the DC Universe Bishoujo series, bishoujo translates to pretty or beautiful girl, which Catwoman definitely is. She comes packaged in a windowed box and plastic insert typical for PVC figures. Included is an instructional sheet for the whip attachment.
Along with the gargoyle Batman base, additional items are two cats, and a whip extension. One of the whip barbs had fallen off with the figure I had received.
Based on Shunya Yamashita illustration the sculpting by Takeuchi Gotaro is excellent but not quite as sexy as the illustration on the box. Overall painting is excellent. The Catsuit has nice creases and folds that adds to the realism of the figure. With the latex like catsuit, whip and boots this figure has some fetishist attributes.
The sly facial expressions along with the whip going into her mouth adds to the seductiveness of the figure and shouts ‘It’s playtime!’ The eye shadow is toned down on the figure when compared to the illustration on the box as well as the blush on the cheeks.
The whip addition attaches to a slot in the back of her catsuit and the three thin wired whips can be positioned to suit to add the feeling of motion to the figure.
With the catsuit unzipped you can tell the Catwoman is a woman and an ample one at that.
Her butt is very well done and all I can say is DAT ASS!
Dual belted boots add to the fetish aspect of this figure and match perfectly with the main catsuit, I would think there should be a tread pattern for better traction.
The two cats are separate and can be positioned to suit on the Batman gargoyle base.
- Nice seductive pose
- Excellent Catsuit
- Batman gargoyle base superbly detailed
- Two free cats
- Good value for price
- One of the whip barbs was off
- Whip addition is a bit fiddly
Another excellent figure from Kotobukiya, one with personality and a worthwhile addition for any figure collection or Shunya Yamashita fan.
