NYCC 2012: DC Collectibles’ Bombshells Line

I’ll be the first to admit that I am not the hugest fan of most statues, mainly due to quality control and face sculpt issues. But every once in a while, something comes out that totally blows me away. This time it’s from, surprise, DC themselves! I was never on board with the statues produced when they were DC Direct, but I adore the direction of this line. It’s basically superheroines as WWII-era pinpus. There’s Wonder Woman in a very Rosie the Riveter-esque pose (slated for March 2013 release) and Supergirl looking like one of those great plane art girls (slated for June 2013 release). They’ll be in the $125-150 price range, really a bargain given how large they are, and I will most definitely be pre-ordering both of these beauties! Apparently they have art done for several more girls, and I absolutely can’t wait to see what’s next. Perhaps a Gil Elvgren-style Batgirl or Catwoman?
