Bat Girl (Kotobukiya)

Hhhhhmmm in my last review I mentioned I don’t buy many Kotobukiya figures…but here I am doing a review on another one! Perhaps I buy more Kotobukiya than I realize?

But despite not knowing her I got her because I liked her appearance and I already had so many of the other figures from the series it seemed a shame to skip one if I liked her appearance. Plus I like how Shunya Yamashita designs heroic looking females.
