One of Kotobukiya’s most popular figure lines is the “Bishoujo” line, and this time around it’s Transformers‘ turn to get its character turned into waifus.
The Bishoujo series transforms popular (and often western) characters into beautiful ladies designed by illustrator Shunya Yamashita, and that concept has been applied to Optimus Prime.
The actual figure will be available for pre-orders this summer, but you can check out the original illustration and a prototype in the video below.
As you can see, Optimus Prime won’t be the only Transformer that will be turned into a beautiful girl. It’ll happen with Megatron as well. And then who knows? Kotobukiya calls it a “series” so there could be more in the future.
If you’re wondering, Bishoujo in Japanese means “beautiful girl” and this line of figures does exactly what it says on the tin.
At the moment, there is no information on pricing or a specific release date. We’ll let you know when Kotobukiya announces them, likely in the summer when pre-orders become available.
