June 16 - Big News Day; Item 4 - SUPERGIRL 1:6 SCALE Deluxe Collector Figure

Also announced on Tuesday was the release of the Supergirl 1:6 scale deluxe figure from DC Direct. This simply looks like a beautiful Supergirl collectible. Just gorgeous!!

Here is the official blurb from http://www.dccomics.com/dcdirect

Kara Zor-El, the most iconic version of Supergirl, dons her classic blue costume as she joins the popular line of 1:6 scale deluxe collector figures! In addition to her intricate and authentically detailed outfit, Kara comes with several accessories, as well as her feline companion, Streaky the Supercat!This figure comes with a display base and is packaged in a deluxe four-color window box with a fifth panel.

It will cost you $89.99 and you have to wait until February 18 2009, so start saving your pennies.

The figure itself looks beautiful. I was a bit unimpressed with the Power Girl Deluxe Figure, but this one really appears slick.

Of course, it is the Matrix-style costume, which is my favorite. I mean, you can't get a better look for Supergirl than the red skirt and the pointed belt. I can't tell if there are pointed long sleeves, but I am hoping. And a little Streaky comes with it! They are appealing to the older fans; older fans are probably the only ones with disposable income and can drop $90 on a doll.

Of course, the astute Supergirl fan might chuckle at the description. Kara Zor-El never wore this costume! Kara's "classic blue costume" came with a blue dress. See below ...

This figure is wearing the Matrix/Linda Danvers/Earth Angel uniform. But this costume has the best 'feel' to it, so I am glad they went with this rather than the 70's hot pants or current belly shirt version.
