It had been a while since this statue had been solicited and even longer since I had paid it off layaway style, a little at a time.
So I was genuinely surprised when the Femme Fatales Supergirl statue came in last week. This is a Supergirl based on the Superman:The Animated Series costume, the white ringer t-shirt and blue pencil skirt.
This is a great statue, showcasing a Supergirl in a nice action pose but smiling and looking ready for action.
The packaging is nice, using the S:TAS logo predominantly and a sort of 'yellow dot' old school coloring motif as well.
The back of the box shows the statue and gives a nice run down of the Kara In-Ze character from the show. This isn't Kara Zor-El. This is a native of Argo rescued by Superman and 'adopted' into his family.
The Kara in JLU was Superman's cousin and I suppose they could have marketed this statue as Superman's cousin. But I like they stuck with her original origin from that show.
Out of the box, it looks very nice. I like the fists clenched look, and a pose like Supergirl is ready to spring into action.
But overall, I think this is a great and thankfully affordable piece of merchandise. Wonderful.
It has a nice home in the 'white shirt' corner of my Supergirl collection, a sort of anchor in the back, right in behind the Timm based statue of her flying in front of the Daily Planet.
This makes me think I might need to do a Shrine update post soon.
