Japanese toy company Takara Tomy Arts has announced the latest addition to their line of hilarious collectable figures, parodying one of America's most famous icons.
In Japan, the Statue of Liberty is known as the Jiyuu Megami or "Freedom Goddess." As such, Takara Tomy Arts has named their symbol of her the Jiyuu Sugiru Megami or "Too Free Goddess," or as we might call her here in the states, "Lady with Too Much Liberty."
The toy will be available for purchase through random selection gatchapon machines for 200 yen a try and comes in six different dignified poses.
The Jiyuu Sugiru Megami is Takara Tomy Arts' spiritual successor to their parody toy of Rodin's "Thinker," released last year. What will be next? Edvard Eriksen's "Not So Little Mermaid?" Or maybe Bernini's "Ecstasy of St. Teresa" would fit the bill better.
