I’m not really into the Star Wars extended universe, but I was intrigued when Kotobukiya announced their Jaina Solo ARTFX statue. Despite being modeled on a Shunya Yamashita design, Jaina is branded as an ARTFX figure and not as part of the Bishoujo line. Unlike other Yamashita designs, Jaina’s design is rather conservative. She’s not showing a lot of skin, or even striking one of those poses designed to make Hawkeye look silly. I’m guessing it’s because of the Star Wars license – gotta keep it kid friendly – but I think the result actually enhances the appeal of the figure.
