Quick re-cap: Kotobukiya has released (3) G.I.Joe characters under their “Bishoujo” banner – The Baroness, Scarlett and Lady Jaye.
Whereas the Baroness has been offered in her Crimson & Cobra Blue uniforms and Scarlett as Glenda, this is the first time Lady Jaye gets the treatment and let me say, she looks fantastic! Feast your eyes on Canary Ann!
The world’s first series of action figures created by Hasbro, G.I. Joe follows a group of heroes in their fight against Cobra, an evil organization plotting to take over the world. In this line of 1/7 scale statues, the colorful characters of G.I. JOE are reborn as Kotobukiya’s BISHOUJO!
This limited edition variant features Lady Jaye, an agent from the global elite special unit known as the G.I. JOE team, dressed in the Canary Ann costume.
In this special color variant, Lady Jaye can be seen donning a mustard yellow coverall as she sneaks into the city. In addition, the ketchup-colored military hat adds an additional cute touch to the overall design.
Created through the power of technology, this high quality digitally sculpted statue leaves no detail untouched thanks to the expert hand of sculptor Takaboku Busujima (BUSUJIMAX)! The digital sculpting brings out a realistic look and feel like no other. The packaging of this statue can also be reassembled to look like the original packaging from the G.I. JOE action figures from the past.
The G.I. JOE BISHOUJO series will continue to grow with an extensive lineup of characters, so stay tuned for more updates! Yo JOE!!G.I. JOE and all related characters are trademarks of Hasbro and are used with permission. © 2021 Hasbro. All Rights Reserved. Licensed by Hasbro.

The original Canary Ann, produced by Funskool India, was a marketing tie in for a brand called Complan that sold a chocolate health drink (think ovaltine). The Complan Commandos are a hard group to come by, especially in loose/mint/complete condition.
I may be mistaken, but I believe this is the first Canary Ann statue to grace our G.I.Joe Collections. Count me in, Kotobukiya!
