a Convention Exclusive PVC Statue of Sera-Chan!
Continuing Kotobukiya’s series of sculptures based on
the art of master illustrator Shunya Yamashita, the new BLONDE BISHOUJO
BOMBSHELL Limited Edition was specially created by Yamashita-san with the traditional
ComiCon logo color scheme in mind. Sculpted by Mitumasa Yosizawa, this
striking piece stands over 10” tall, and includes a base printed with
a statement of production limitation. This exclusive collectible is strictly
limited to only 1000 pieces; 500 of which will be made available for fans to
purchase at Kotobukiya’s SDCC booth #2301. Priced at only $40, it
is expected to be a highly sought after statue by manga/anime fans, as well

Figures, Merchandise and high end Jewelry for sale, from such properties as
