With anime aesthetics often skewing towards more youthful-looking characters than American comics, and Shimada’s work particularly so, the Wonder Woman Humikane Shimada Ver. figure doesn’t look quite as statuesque as her counterparts you’ll find on DC’s pages, and has sort of an anime magical girl team’s big sister-type vibe.
The Wonder Woman Humikane Shimada Ver. is priced at 5,800 yen (US$54) and can be preordered through Kotobukiya’s online shop here.
Now, after having added cute anime girls to the concepts of war on the land, sea, and air, Shimada’s latest project is one with thoroughly American roots: Wonder Woman.
As you can probably guess from his name, Humikane Shimada is a Japanese character designer and illustrator.
