HarleyQuinn00

I’ve posted a lot of Harley Quinn statues and busts here, but this was my very first one. She’s part of the earliest series of Cover Girls of DC statues, based on the art of Adam Hughes, and while the busts have put Harley in her classic costume over and over, this is the only statue in this particular line that has her in the traditional red and black outfit.

Zatanna00

I’m still working my way through taking pictures of all the DC Direct busts, and today’s collectible goes all the way back to the first Women of the DC Universe series. Adam Hughes designed this Zatanna, and she came with “real” fishnets like the Black Canary bust. It’s a neat effect, and I’m still convinced that it’ll end up making mint condition busts rarer as more and more eventually end up getting snagged or torn in people’s collections. DC Direct followed up with another Zatanna bust a while later, designed by Amanda Conner.

BlackCanary00

Here’s one more bust from the Women of the DC Universe series before I start posting some of my male DC character collectibles. I do have more of the women, but I wanted to shift gears for a bit, so a bunch of dude heroes and bad guys will be posting here in the coming days. This last female is Black Canary, part of the line designed by Adam Hughes. She came with actual fabric / webbing stuff for her fishnets instead of sculpting them on. This likely means a whole lot of them are going to get snagged, and pristine condition busts will be at a premium in the future.

Batgirl00

There have been three Batgirl busts in the Women of the DC Universe / DC Comics Superheroes series so far, and this was the very first one. For some reason, all three have featured the Barbara Gordon version of the character, and they have yet to make any of the other Batgirls. It would be cool to see a Stephanie Brown bust at some point, but that seems unlikely right now, as the series is focusing entirely on New 52 characters at this point. Despite my complaining about the lack of variety, this Batgirl is one of my overall favorites in the whole series. She’s designed by Adam Hughes and, unlike a lot of the other pieces that have been produced from his artwork, this one actually looks like she stepped right out of one of his drawings. Batgirl comes with her cowl as a separate piece, which you can choose to hang from her hand or leave off entirely.

Hawkgirl00

Due to her wingspan, Hawkgirl is one of the larger busts in the early days of the Women of the DC Universe bust series. She’s also one of the best executed pieces, from the sculpting details on her wings to the paint application on her face and costume. This is the only Hawkgirl piece they’ve released in this series so far, but I fully expect to see a New 52 version wearing the face mask coming in the future.

PowerGirl00

This Power Girl was the first version of the character released in the Women of the DC Universe bust series and is designed by Adam Hughes. Adam does fantastic Power Girl art, and he did a great job putting this piece together, but the later Power Girl designed by Amanda Conner ended up looking better overall. The only real issue with this bust is that the paint work is a little strange. Her skintone is a bit too orange, and the detailing on her face is not quite up to par. As the Women of DC line progressed, the final production pieces have become better and more detailed, so it’s been a natural progression with some otherwise awesome collectibles having little griping points like the paint on this one.

DonnaTroy00

I’m back to working my way through the rest of my DC bust collection, and today’s photos are of the Donna Troy bust designed by Adam Hughes. This is the only Donna Troy they’ve made in this series so far, and while the bust design and execution look good, the physics of it are pretty terrible. She’s top-heavy and tends to lean to the front, which wouldn’t be a problem if DC Direct had made her base a little bigger and heavier. As it is, the base is tiny, making it very easy for her to tip over. I definitely am careful anytime I need to open the display case where I have her.

Supergirl00

Continuing my posting of early busts in the Women of the DC Universe series, here is their first Supergirl, designed by Adam Hughes. To date there have been four Supergirl busts in the series, and I really like that DC went with a different look, take, or version of the character for each one. I already have posted the Amanda Conner version, the Dodson version, and the New 52, so this Hughes one rounds out that collection (until they make another one).

HarleyQuinn00

After posting the early Catwoman and Poison Ivy busts from the Women of the DC Universe series over the past couple of days, I’m rounding out the Gotham trio with Harley Quinn today. Yes, I have a million Harley Quinns. This probably was my first one, though, as she was the earliest Harley released in DC Direct’s collectibles line, when all the pieces were designed by or based on Adam Hughes’ art.

PoisonIvy00

Following up on the Catwoman bust from yesterday, here’s the Poison Ivy bust from the first series of Women of the DC Universe, also designed by Adam Hughes. Back in these first few series of the bust collection, the pieces were slightly smaller in scale than the DC Comics Superheroes series that is currently running (and that basically is just a continuation of the same series). This Poison Ivy is in scale with the rest of the busts in the line but looks significantly smaller because of the variation in those earlier busts and because of her compact pose.
