I’ve pre-ordered the Black Canary and Zatanna editions of the Cover Girls of the DCU Statue Series, but missed Wonder Woman and decided to wait and see on her, and honestly had no idea that Diana was coming out today. I would have been perfectly happy walking out with my comics and JSA Series 1 (well, not perfectly happy with the JSA figures, but that’s next review…), but with an Eight Year Old girl who loves Wonder Woman holding a box with pleading eyes and saying “We can’t leave without this, Daddy….”, what was I supposed to do?
The Adam Hughes-inspired pose is indeed dramatic and well captured – the lasso is made out of firm wire and the statue is very solidly balanced. The sculpting and paint job is excellent. The only criticism I’d make of the piece is the slightly blank expression on Diana’s face.
So, hooked again on another line, although I wonder how many characters DCD will stretch this out to at this higher price point. Personally, I could see Hawkgirl, Vixen and Power Girl and then I’m not sure where the line will go, but I’ll enjoy it while it lasts.
You can see an expanded set of figures at Facebook, (including comparison to the 1:6 line – these are about 10 inches) discuss this at the AFB Forum and comment on this post to enter the June AFB Comment of the Month Contest.
Until next time!
