The Shrine Updated


A while back I said I would update how my Supergirl collection is displayed at home now. The addition of larger items forced me to move everything from a smallish corner cabinet to the entertainment center that houses the television in my tiny corner of the basement.

With the addition of the Terry Dodson Supergirl bust, I figured now was as good a time as any.

The top shelf is the sparsest. It also is the 'Silver Age' shelf.

Since there aren't many pieces, the display really highlights the DC Direct statue of the Action Comics #252 cover which I think is the signature piece of the collection. Surrounding it are the Silver Age Supergirl action figure with Streaky and Midvale sign, the Pocket Heroes Supergirl, the Adam Hughes 'Women of the DC Universe' bust, and a Supergirl bobble head doll. While it is the Matrix costume, she is emerging from the rocket and so was put on this shelf.



The shelf below is the 'current costume shelf.

The Terry Dodson bust stands front and center and adds a bit of coverage for the minimally dressed Kotobukiya vinyl statue. The 'bookends' are the Barbie Supergirl and the Deluxe figure (which stands out for being in the Matrix style costume as well). Between them are a number of figures - Microman Japanese import, DC Minimate, Heroclix, Infinite Heroes, Return of Supergirl (Turner style), Superman/Batman (McGuiness style), and DC Diorama.


The last shelf is mostly the 'white shirt' costume and the Crisis uniform albeit with some 'others'.

The white shirt collection includes the Warner Brothers store plush, DC Animated statue, JLU paper weight, DC Direct action figure and DC sculpt figure.

The Crisis section includes the COIE action figure, the Crisis pocket figure, and the ERTL diecast.

There also is a custom made Lego Supergirl, the Elseworld's Finest figure, the Justice hot pants figure, and the Bruckner Matrux-style mini-statue.

As always, there are pieces I would love to have in the collection. The Bruckner full size statue, based on the Peter David/Gary Frank Supergirl run is the one I crave the most. But there is a Michael Turner statue and the pieta-like Crisis on Infinite Earths statue.

Anyways, when pieces get added, I will update again. Hope you enjoy.

Hot damn I love seeing that sweet collection of yours there Anj! :D

Question: what exactly is a 'Bruckner Matrux-style mini-statue' though? :/

Great collection Anj!
Aside from the JLU blue Supergirl in the Target exclusive six pack, the next Supergirl figure will come in a DCUC two pack with Lex Luthor next spring. No idea if she will be a re-release of the 2007 figure, or a repaint.

How about a poll on what type of Supergirl action figures we would like to see made?

Tim Bruckner is a sculptor who has designed some of the better comic based statues in the past.

This particular statue came in a larger size but I haven't been able to find it at an affordable price.

Hmmmm. I am still on the fence about getting this latest figure.

Interesting thought.

I have had another poll idea in my head that I just might do first.
