 A KOTOBUKIYA Japanese import!  Kotobukiya’s elite Bishoujo Statue line has brought you beautiful characters from all manner of anime series, DC and Marvel comics, Star Wars, video games, and much more.  Recently the series took a totally unique turn, transforming two horror movie icons into pretty girls with Jason Voorhees and Freddy Krueger.  Now a third gender-bending film star joins the party with a stunning new Bishoujo interpretation of EDWARD SCISSORHANDS!

Tim Burton’s classic 1990 dark fantasy introduced the world to Edward (played magnificently by Johnny Depp), a gentle automaton with unfinished scissor hands created by a mad scientist.  Now that character’s iconic appendages, color scheme, and style have been interpreted by Kotobukiya based on an original illustration by Shunya Yamashita that brings Edward to life as never before.  The beautiful female version stands with all the awkwardness of the film character, her feet apart and knees spread, head cocked to one side, and scissor hands held up in front of her.  “Edward” wears a fantastically detailed black gothic-style outfit with tall boots, stockings, a short dress with shredded skirt, long gloves, and a choker at her neck.  The darkness of her clothing is offset by striking gold buckles and studs, and of course the silver blades of her scissors.  Meanwhile, under her tousled black hair this unique creature silently ponders the world with a cute expression on her Bishoujo-styled face.  Edward Scissorhands stands 9 inches tall (1/7 scale) on a special themed display base.

Daniel “Julius Marx” Pickett has been around toys his whole life. The first line he ever collected was Mego’s World’s Greatest Super Heroes line back in the 70s. He has been surrounded by collectables ever since. In 1999 he was confounded by a lack of information and news about some of his favorite toy lines he was collecting. Since he couldn’t find the information he decided to pursue it himself thinking other people might also be interested in the same news. He started writing a weekly column on the toy industry and action figure for a toy news site and in a years time he tripled the sites daily traffic with his updates, reviews and product features. He built relationships with every major toy manufacturer and many sculptors, painters and mold makers. He grew his hobby into a world wide expertise that the industry has embraced. In 2004 he teamed up with his toy buddy Jason “ToyOtter” Geyer and they created their own website www.ActionFigureInsider.com. Daniel has been quoted in both industry and mass media press outlets. Over the years Daniel and AFi have been sought out as experts in the field. Daniel was regularly featured on “Attack of the Show” on the G4 network as the primary contributor to their “Mint On Card” segment, and our front page has been linked to from USA Today’s “Pop Candy” Blog twice. Daniel’s content has also been featured on MSNBC.com, Time.com, The Wall Street Journal, The Saturday Evening Post, CNN.com, AssociatedPress.com Wired.com, Fark.com, Boing-Boing, Gizmodo.com, Ain’t It Cool News, the Official Star Wars blog, Geekologie, G4, CNet and Toy Fare magazine, among many others. He has consulted on toy lines, books, documentaries and TV shows. But all of that really just sounds snooty and “tootin’ his own horn” – the long and short of it is that Daniel loves toys and he LOVES talking about them.
