While the literal translation of bishoujo from Japanese to English is beautiful girl, we’d describe the Tali’Zorah Bishoujo statue as sultry. Standing at a seventh scale at just over 9-inches tall, Tali’Zorah is captured walking forward wielding her Quarian Reegar Carbine. The purple and black Quarian garb is sculpted snugly to the statue’s form, accentuating Tali’s proportions. Highlighted by yellow and white accents, the outfit features multiple layers and a variety of impressive intricately detailed patterns. Metallic silver coloring on the boots, belt and harness buckles, and respirator adds additional depth to the piece. A hood with realistic looking folds covers the head and a semi-opaque pink faceshield covers Tali’Zorah’s face. The faceshield reveals just enough of the alien portrait behind it to show its shape while still leaving it mysterious.
Koto’s Mass Effect 3 Tali’Zorah Bishoujo statue stands atop a clear base. Two clear disc-shaped labels–one with the Mass Effect 3 logo and the other with a Tali’Zorah illustration–can be inserted into the base, which has a removable piece at the bottom that secures the discs in place. The choice of display options for the base is a nice touch, even though my preference was to display the statue with just the base, sans labels.
Tali’Zorah is an impressively sculpted statue that’s a must for Mass Effect fans. The statue joins the previously released Liara T’soni in Koto’s Bishoujo lineup and can be purchased directly from Kotobukiya at Koto’s official web shop for $79.99. The statue is also available for purchase on Amazon, as well.
