DC Dynamics Supergirl Statue
It looks like I am going to have to start saving some pennies and clearing a spot in the shrine for a new Supergirl statue. Over on Comic Book Resources, DC Direct has announced that the next release in their Dynamic series will be Supergirl. Here is the link and the picture:
While no price is mentioned, the prior Dynamic studies were priced at a hefty $195.00. There isn't a release date on this post either but given the release schedule of the others, we are probably looking at early December 2010.
This is the stock description of the Dynamic statues from the DC Direct page:
DC Direct's exquisite new statue gallery series, featuring dynamic interpretations of classic superheroes, continues!
Award-winning sculptor Tim Bruckner has transformed his original designs of the most recognizable DC characters into some of the most outstanding, upscale statues DC Direct has ever produced. Each statue features a base that captures the character's interaction with the surrounding environment.
Here is a closer view of a very happy Supergirl twirling in flight. That 'dynamic' feel is evident here, the swirls of her cape and skirt evoking this joyous flying. She just looks so happy!
It is interesting that DC went with the true Silver Age costume complete with blue skirt. I suppose the blue skirt and lack of belly shirt makes for an easier visual transition from Supergirl to 'flight trail'.
The pose did remind me a bit of this Ian Churchill cover seen on both Superman/Batman #19 and reprinted in Supergirl #0.
The other statues solicited are just as impressive in design. Superman, Batman, and Green Lantern all are really striking.
But I had to show the other statues I am completely taken with. This Aquaman statue as he rises from the depths is fantastic.
The Wonder Woman statue is also spectacular. I love the Golden Age eagle top and the cloud base.
I suppose I have enough lead time to start squirreling away $5 here and there.
