Bombshells Line Archive

  • Back at NYCC, we got to take a look at DC Collectibles’ spectacular new Bombshell figure line, which features DC characters in classic pinup poses. They had one new girl on display at Toy Fair, the always-lovely Poison Ivy! She’s got a pretty standard pinup girl outfit on, except for the fact that her clothing all seems to be made of plants. I don’t know if I like her quite as much as Supergirl (my current favorite in the line) but she definitely has a lot of charm! We also have info on the next release they will be working on, Harley Quinn. We don’t have definitive art yet, but we do know that she’ll be riding a bomb. So I guess she’ll be a more literal bombshell!

  • 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?
