I’m not a My Little Pony fan. I do not collect Kotobukiya’s Bishoujo statues. But wow, wow, wow, if they kicked off with this My Little Pony Princess Celestia, there is a very good chance that I would have purchased it out of context.
This statue is gorgeous.
Everything about it really speaks to my sensibilities– it is quiet, soft, accented by gentle gradience and beautiful, shimmering colors. I love the pearlescent paint and the way the fabric is flowing at pleating around her dress. It’s seriously breathtaking. I’d be curious to know from Pony collectors how this Princess Celestia compares to the other seven Bishoujo ponies that came before it. I’m sure it’s because of the nature of the character, but I just like the gracefulness of this statue. It really taps into the Fairy Tale pieces by Myethos that I am such a fan of.
Official product description via BigBadToyStore:
Twilight Sparkle’s mentor, the ruler of Equestria, and the most magical pony, Princess Celestia, is joining the stylized Bishoujo figure line of My Little Pony characters!
She is adorned in a dress designed by Shunya Yamashita, painted in soft pearl finish with a gorgeous color gradation. Princess Celestia’s mystical flowing hair is made of clear plastic filled with glitter and painted with a matching pearlescent finish to bring out a soft and gentle texture like that of warm sunlight. The statue fully captures Princess Celestia’s gentle grace as she calmly watches over the Mane 6 ponies as they learn about the magic of friendship.
The white shimmering pony version of Princess Celestia is set on a separate base and can be displayed independently! Careful attention was given to capture the beautiful details of her elegant silhouette—from her mane to her flowing tail—resulting in the most voluminous pony statue up until now.
The package design beautifully contrasts to that of the previously released Princess Luna’s and includes a hologram design. With so much care placed in each detail of this statue makes this a must-have piece for all My Little Pony fans!
