Supergirl Kotobukiya Statue
The latest addition to the Supergirl Shrine was the recently released Supergirl Kotobukiya statue.
I have to say, I really like this statue for many reasons.
I thinks this is about as good a representation of the New 52 uniform that I have seen. No odd corners on the lower hem. And I love the metallic sheen of the paint. Really slick.
The confident facial expression, the Mahmud Asrar inspired hair style, the heroic pose - hand on hip, other hand clenched in a fist - it all works.
I also like that the base is a metal square and a magnet is embedded in the boot. It means I can feel comfortable the statue is secure. But it also means I can move her around on the square as I figure out how to place the base on the shelf.
Here is the statue from the side.
And from the back.
As always, I appreciate the dedication to details like the costume piping and the folds in the cape.
I know my camera is limited so here is a clearer picture of the statue from an ad.
It might be time for me to post an updated collection photo set.
