Wonder Woman is my favourite character but I think they could have chosen a better cover or artwork from Adam. I would have preferred this:

WW is 11" tall & Zatanna is 10"... which, I think, includes the base in that measurement.

Not sure about BC or Catwoman.

IMHO, that Catwoman actually looks more like Adam's art than any of the Sideshow comiquettes so far.

They're all really nice pieces, DC Direct really seems to be raising their game lately. At least in terms of the stuff modeled on the comics themselves. (Not so much the movie stuff)

Radagaster

I believe that Wonder Woman is already on sale, and for cheap too! Ditto with Zatanna. Looks like I may collect the others as well if these look to be capturing AH!'s DC line. I can see Supergirl and others following suit.

I saw them in person and they looked way smaller than 11" tall. They were all around the same height and my estimation 8-9 inches tall. the base isnt very thick at all.

However, the detail, sculpt, and paint on these were amazing. Im just hoping the production pieces come out the way the displays did. If they do, im sold on this line and will get every one.

PS: has it been confirmed that these are "AH" pieces? :confused:

Same here, I'm in if the quality sticks. The Canary and Catwoman look impressive. I always wished I had started a collection of the B&W Batman series, so there's no way I'm missing the boat on these.

Well I guess I meant 9" from head to toe...obviously the arms and hat will extend that a bit. regardless, they are quite small and I think most people here won't be used to that scale. For me, it's not any problem.

I think Darth Saffron confirmed that AH! had no input on the making of them, but they were just using his covers as a basis. As opposed to the SSC pieces where Adam art directs the piece.

They are kind of small but at only $100 that's not bad. I would have prefered a larger scale with a higher price point but at least these will be space-friendly.

UGH! These are excellent! I wondered if the promo shots would be as good as "in person". These really capture AH's art extremely well (better than Sideshow's, which I really love). Time to start looking for pennies in the couches.

Looks like the sculptor they hired for these nailed the likenesses. And if the trend is correct, he's basing it on the Women of DC Universe Comic Book Cover Portfolio that's been released to date. I wonder which cover the Catwoman is from?

Zatanna is already up for pre-order at your favorite online store. Just google Zatanna statue. Catwoman and Black Canary were just announced, so I dont expect them to be available yet. I'm soooooo glad I didnt jump on the bust line. These look to be better sculpted, not to mention full figured (in every sense). The stands also look to be 1" at most, which make them closer to 1/7 scale??

Put an order in for these a few weeks ago at my local LCS, they really did a nice job with these. Really have no problems with there size, I don't display my DC stuff with my sideshow stuff, so never presents a problem though I can see how it can for some collectors.

I hope they have a few more to announce after this initial group. My only nitpick and it's a small one would be for some kinda of fishnets on Zee, but it's won't stop me from proudly displaying it when I get it.

DarthSaffron does Adam like what he has seen so far from this line?

Well there's a problem; Adam hasn't done any cover art with any other standing Heroines that they can base their statues on. And they I don't think they want to hire Adam to design more. Maybe their intention is to have the statues match specific covers. But if that's the case, there aren't any other AH! covers with what they are looking for.

DC Direct emailed Adam to ask if there were other covers to work from, featuring other DC babes in standing poses, and he had to tell them that there weren't. They asked if Adam could do other covers for DC, but I think they want him focused on completing All Star Wonder Woman ( and rightly so) so wouldn't be inclined to give him additional cover assignments just so statues could be made from them later.

But what do I know.:confused:

I wouldn't give up on them entirely. Just because they aren't part of this line doesn't mean we'll never see them. I think those covers are too iconic for them to remain just covers and posters. I'm sure in time we'll get lunch boxes, coffee mugs, and goodness knows what else. Maybe even statues.

And before anyone suggests it, I'm not hinting. We really don't know what DC Direct has going on.

It would still be nice to see them made by whoever is sculpting the WW, Catwoman, Zatanna and Black Canary (sorry, haven't looked to see who the sculptor is yet). I think he (or she) has done the best work capturing AH's art style. Not sure what you or Adam think, but I love 'em!

We were told that the Supergirl on the Meteor and the Powergirl cover from JLA Confidential would not be made into statues. Seeing as the PG #1 cover Adam just did doesn't exactly have her in her costume, i find it unlikely that they will want to use that one.

Somehow if this was SS' statue, they could pull of fthe fishnets on the statue. However, with this being owned by DCD, I'll have to cut them some slack on that detail. The important thing is that ALL these DCD statues look like their proto when they ship!

Yeah, we all know acurate Sideshow is on all their pieces. :rolleyes:

It's not like they ever released an inferior product.

Namor, Moria Orc, Bruce Lee, Galadriel, Aragorn, Gandalf,...

Indy PF's whole jacket...


....that's just what I can think of off the top of my head that's come out in the last year. Sure some people may have liked some of those pieces but most thought they were subpar or had major problems.


My point, every company has highs and lows. Stop drinking that SS Kool Aid. :D

It's even worse when people take their own opinion and project to encompass a lot more people than it applies to.

Of those things you mention above, ultimately only Bruce Lee fits into your hypothesis.

Agreed, I really don't know anyone who thought the Indy PF was "sub par".

Agreed. Nobody I ever spoke with thought Indy was "sub par", on the contrary everyone I spoke with thought the Indy statue was an incredible piece of art.

I was referring to the paint detail. I looked at how SS did a great job painting the webbing on the Spiderman 3 releases. So, fishnet stockings would be easy for them to do. I was not referring to the switcheroo or production issues they ran into with mixed media. I can see though how it's possible to construe my statement as that though. So, please refrain from referring to me as imbibed with the SS Kool-Aid.

Regardless I'm looking forward to these DCD statues. I have yet to find something to collect in DC's male superheroes.

Well I'd like to take a stab at steering this thread back on course. So, if there are no more Adam Hughes covers that can serve as statues, it's only a matter of time before DC turns to their AH! stand in Terry Dodson, After all this line is called "woman of the DC universe" and not "Adams Hughes's version of women of the DCU". What I'd like to see is the line take a page out of the Batman B&W line and give us different artists interpretation of female DCU icons.

Not sure they would do Dodson line after the AH! covers are over, Dodson is over at Marvel not and not sure if his contract covers any new statues but who knows with DCD they march to their own tune.

Just wish the Green Lantern PF didn't have Ch'p :(

As has been pointed out, DCD doesn't need the involvement of the artist to create 3D items based on the 2D art they did under contract to DC.

From a post on the DC Direct forums, this is supposedly the AH! cover to Power Girl #2:

That seems like a perfect addition to the DC Covergirls line.

Aside from the facial expression, that's pretty close to the bust they already did.

But I'm all for more in this series.

She's the only one I'm going to get...though I think the others look fantastic as well. I have an AH Cat Woman print (it's also my avatar) and that statue will look awesome displayed next to it.

Just pre-ordered from Razor's Edge....October seems so far away. :monkey2

There are differences. Arms down on the cover, arms up in the bust. I think the cape on the cover looks looks like an homage to Batman's cape in one of Ross' Batman paintings that was made into a statue. And so on. More than enough differences for a full body statue, especialy coming from a company that is starting to release so many repaints. At least I hope so.

Adam is doing a total of 6 covers for Powergirl. I hope DC Direct waits to see what else he does, before jumping in and sculpting this one. Better images may come along.

Well they could always make more than one statue of PG. Wouldn't that be nice? :D
