If you are a fan of Kill Bill and collectibles, then you better check out the newest release by Kotobukiya. The retailer has revealed its figure of The Bride, and the heroine’s black-and-yellow tracksuit is on full display for any fan to see.
According to the company, the figure will be available for purchase in June 2017. Looking at the figure, fans of the Kill Bill films can see the anime-inspired figure does resemble Uma Thurman’s character. The lithe figure is wearing a replica outfit to the one that The Bride wears in Quentin Tarantino’s action-pack features. She is also poised with the character’s beloved samurai blade, so there’s no telling whether the figure actually has The Bride’s skills when it comes to assassinations.

At this angle, fans can clearly see the resemblance between Uma Thurman's Bride and Kotobukiya's figure. Though the heroine's sword could be positioned a little higher, the figure's stance is one that says, 'Stay back or face my wrath.' Sure, the doll has doe-like eyes, but her blade is as sharp as its wielder's battle sense.
From the front, the Kotobukiya figure is nothing short of a masterpiece. The beautifully sculpted piece features clothing wrinkles, skin dimpling, and more. Even the figure's hair sculpt houses loose curls, so fans can forgive if it appears to be a tad longer than the hairstyle Um Thurman sported in Kill Bill.
If the figure couldn't get your attention from the front, then its backside will surely catch the eyes of some fans. Again, Kotobukiya's attention to detail is seen front-and-center with this figure and its clothing. The tracksuit's top and bottoms are realistically wrinkled, and even The Bride's shoe detailing is compliant with Quentin Tarantino's movies.
