Kotobukiya Shows Final Rainbow Dash Statue Design + Applejack Concept
Plans can change over the time, and we've seen plenty of collectibles and ideas that never made the final cut. On the other end of the spectrum we have Kotobukiya who, after the initial announcement 2 years ago, is still following their steady pace of designing and releasing bishoujo statues based on the Mane 6.
Today they shared tons of photos of the finalized Rainbow Dash statue design, and it's stunning! She's still true to the initial mane 6 concept art and features a tad darker skin color than the other girls and has a very playful and dynamic pose. As with the others there is plenty of detailed designing that got into the statue, and even the pattern on the bottom of the shoes has been thought of. Especially impressive is the hair style and "floating" jacket that Rainbow Dash combines with a white tank top and hot pants.
The pony Rainbow Dash next to the statue is also striking a pose and is ready to fly at any moment. With 3D eye lashes and styled hair the pony got the same level of treatment as her human counterpart. Both are placed on a circular base with a light blue and white cutie mark pattern.
More images of her can be found below.

Together with this final design the pre-orders started on various sites, like PlazaJapan. Japanese pre-orders can be placed on Kotobukiya's website, and we expect the US website to follow soon. The release set of her is set for July 2020. Previous released statues can also be found on Amazon, but Rainbow Dash are not yet listed.

Aside from these new photos of Rainbow Dash, a first concept of Applejack has been shared as well. Just like Rainbow Dash, she too closely follows the original concept art from last year. While still in solid grey, we can clearly see the details of her tied shirt, jeans skirt, cowboy boots and, last but not least, her signature hat! Pony Applejack will too feature her hat and a too-cute wink.
With the current pace we can expect a colored design of her in 3-4 months, so a bit more patience is required. A physical version of the base model will be on display during Wonder Festival 2020 (Feb 9, Tokyo).

    1. Aside from the mane 6 no other statues are planned. And those aren't Equestria Girls by the way, they're Kotobukiya's own interpretation of the mane 6 in human form.
