Marvel’s Netflix series have gained significant traction over a short period of time, and Jessica Jones is among their breakout hits. So it stands to reason that they’d capitalize on the character’s popularity ahead of her second season by means of merchandise.
Jessica Jones is receiving a new 7-inch statue from Kotobukiya as part of their ARTFX+ series. Emphasizing her anti-heroic nature, Jessica Jones opts to skip the tights in favor of urban clothing as she prepares to get down and dirty with investigations into the seedier side of New York City. Kotobukiya’s official press release for the product is as follows:
“The time for investigation is over and Jessica Jones stands ready to take down any creep or villain who threatens her city! Remembering her former glory days as an Avenger, the private eye takes a tough stance in the face of evil, turned to the side to present a smaller target and holding her fists clenched tight.
She wears her usual casual work attire with black and white tennis shoes, blue jeans, a white shirt, and a navy blue jacket. Her pose accentuates her athletic physique and captures the power she holds within her, while the fluttering of her long brown hair adds a unique hint of motion to the presentation. Meanwhile, the Defender stares down the punks before her with a look of disdain and determination, her pursed lips decorated with vibrant red lipstick.
Sculpted by Junnosuke Abe (RESTORE), the master behind all of the Marvel ARTFX+ releases, Jessica Jones stands just over 7 inches tall (1/10th scale) with magnets in her feet providing perfect stability on the included display base. Add this smart and tough private investigator to your Defenders lineup and watch out for the last member, Iron Fist, coming soon!”
The Defenders is available to stream as a part of Netflix’s original programming.
