Kotobukiya sends over gallery of final Lucy pics.

Don’t forget, if you’re interested in owning the figure, you can pre-order it from GBFans.com. GBFans is selling them for $59.99, which is very likely on the low end of the SRP scale (meaning, you’ll find most other places will mark up higher than that), and is listed for an August 31st, 2011 release (Kotobukiya is only saying August 2011 so far, but AJ, being a buyer, likely has the skinny of ship date.)

A Kotobukiya Japanese import! The Ghostbusters, New York’s very own paranormal investigators, are back in the headlines and this time around they have a new recruit, Lucy. This Ghostbuster-in-training is determined not to let any spook, specter or ghost get past her and she has the equipment to back her up. Outfitted in Egon Spengler’s proprietary Proton Pack and Ecto Goggles, she is truly a slime-eradicating force to be reckoned with!

Standing triumphantly over a ghost trap after bagging her latest catch, Lucy lets loose a smile of satisfaction over another job well done. She rests the wand of her proton pack on her left shoulder while her other hand sits calmly at her exposed hip. Her uniform has definitely seen better days as her pants are torn and tattered from this recent spectral encounter. The standard issue Proton Pack has thankfully remained unscathed exhibiting incredibly sculpted details such as the power cell, crank generator and Cyclotron.

Ghostbuster Lucy is the latest entry to the Japanese Bishoujo (pretty girl) collection based on an original character design by master illustrator, Shunya Yamashita. Sculpted by Masahiro “Gill Gill” Takahashi, she stands nearly 9 ½ inches tall (in 1/7th scale) atop a specially designed base uniquely accented with a manhole cover donning the Ghostbuster logo. When supernatural activity is afoot, this is the gal you want to call!

Kotobukiya to produce bishoujo Ghostbuster! [UPDATE] New pics

Wow! This would be the left field item of the entire 2011 Toy Fair – Kotobukiya, makers of fine PVC bishoujo (literally “beautiful young girl”) figures – you may have seen one of their Marvel or DC figs at your local comic shop – are putting out a Ghostbuster figure!

When Dread Central asked them why the girl wasn’t modeled after Janine, they didn’t really have an answer, just that she was their own creation. Dread Central is pushing for a swappable Janine head by SDCC – you never know, could happen.

The figure is due out August 2011, and will retail for a suggested price of $59.99.

And now I’m off to get my raincoat and await the purists heads to explode…
