Kotobukiya’s Sexy Female Freddy vs. Jason Figures Get Live-Action Adaptation

Remember these ladies? Kotobukiya’s bishoujo statue line turns whatever character it interprets into buxom, scantily clad, anime-style babes, which makes more sense when it’s, say, Catwoman. But yeah, they made Freddy Krueger and Jason Voorhees.

And now Nerdist and Scream Factory have made a live-action short based on these unique variants, starring Adrianne Curry, and giving Kotobukiya ideas for another figure at the very end. I’m not sure it quite does the toys justice – for that, you’d need Axel Braun. But it comes as close as may be possible to making the female versions somewhat empowering, which, while almost certainly contrary to the intent of the toy, is impressive.
