Looks like a new line from DC Direct. First up is Wonder Woman (http://www.dccomics.com/dcdirect/?dcd=11002&lst=new&cat=JUST+ANNOUNCED), not a bad looking statue.

BBTS (http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/product.aspx?product=dcc10730&mode=retail) has the preorder up for $84.99. I've put my order in for this one and I might get others that are announced depending on what they look like.

That's a good price for a statue that size.

For a while all of the DC Direct single character statues were in the $195.00 range.

This is more like Maquette pricing

Thanks for the link Stewbacca!

Reading through that, I really hope they dont skip Supergirl, I'll be extremely disappointed! The Catwoman looks pretty good though. Cant wait to see more detail pics.

Loving this line so far! Hope they get to do Barbara Gordon Batgirl at some point!

I think they're all based on Adam Hughes drawings (the first five are), so if he ever did a cover with her on it, the chances are good that she'll turn up.

Zatanna will look real good with a Batman display so I might pick her up down the road.

She's home! Stuck her next to KC Sups since they're nearly the same size & they 'hook-up' in the end.

Mostly though, I'm a closet Power Girl nut, so that announcement at the beginning of the week had my in cartwheels... http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif

Got my Zatanna last week, which is my first of the series having skipped Wonder Woman (for now anyway). Holy crap this thing is INCREDIBLE! It's not 100% true to the Hughes art but honestly I like the face on this much better than Hughes'.

I love the "tail" made of her whip. Nice touch.

Very tempted in pulling the trigger for Catwoman, but its going to be an expensive month or so...She looks great and I hope to get her one day...

I'm liking it a lot...but what's up with her right hand? Looks kind of odd to me.

It's oddly posed. She's grasping the end of the shovel between her middle and pinky finger, with her ring finger raised up. Odd.

At any rate, I love this line. I have Catwoman and she's really as good as the pictures look. I think I may have to go back to get Zatanna as well. As much as I love Harley, I hate the "droopy" jester's headpiece. Never liked that look.

A new Cover Girl showed up at my door yesterday. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif I wasn't sure about it at first, but it's growing on me. I still think the face is a little too pointy (compared to the artwork), but overall it's pretty good.

BBTS has Supergirl up, I went ahead and pre-ordered this one http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

Personally I prefer the modern Kara Zor-El outfit to the older Matrix outfit but its still a nice sculpt.

I like the look of the statue it self just not so sure about the open mouthed scream expression.

JohnH

Don't care for it one bit! Not only is it awkward looking, I don't think it goes with the rest of the line at all. Not to mention that I could name at least a dozen other characters they could do first without doing *another* Wonder Woman.

Got Harley the other day. Suuuper nice statue but it has some paint flaws. Still, it makes a great display piece. Did a review here (http://www.dccollectoruniverse.com/reviews/review-cover-girls-of-the-dc-universe-harley-quinn) if anyone's interested.

OK, I've had Batgirl for a week now, and I've taken some time to let it display and soak in the goods and the bads. I really think it's a pretty cool statue and captures Hughes' work and style well, I just don't like how it displays with the other Cover Girls.

Full review and more pics here (http://www.dccollectoruniverse.com/reviews/review-cover-girls-of-the-dc-universe-batgirl/) if anyone's interested.

Group shot - not the best pic but it's fun to see them all together. http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif Supergirl arrives this week, but she's going to my Supergirl shelf and won't be displayed with the rest of the Girls.
