PoisonIvy00

I’ve managed to keep up with a new post with a different collectible every day of this Project 365 so far. Last night, following a resounding crash of thunder, the Internet went out, and it stayed out until sometime in the middle of the night. Consequently, even though I had the photos ready to go, I couldn’t make my daily post for August 5. I’m counting this as not having broken the Project 365 streak since the outage was due to factors out of my control, and I’m backdating this post to the 5th so as to conform in calendar view. All that bookkeeping aside, here’s the Poison Ivy bust from series 3 of the Women of the DC Universe line. I’ve been posting a lot of DC girls lately, and I plan to shift gears a little in the coming days.

Catwoman00

Catwoman is one of DC Direct’s favorite characters, based on the number of statues and busts they’ve made of her. This one is from the third series of Women of the DC Universe busts and is designed by Amanda Conner. Most of the statues and busts depict Catwoman in one of her various black costumes, but this is the only one to date to put her in her purple catsuit from the early to mid-’90s. I’m not positive, but I think Jim Balent is the artist who created this look for the character, and it’s still one of the best.

Raven00

A while back I posted photos of the DC Cover Girls Raven statue, and today I took pictures of the bust of Raven that came out prior to that statue. This one was another piece in the third series of Women of the DC Universe, designed by Amanda Conner. She comes with the “T” bust to match her Teen Titans teammate Wonder Girl, from that same bust series, and she’s limited to 3000 pieces (mine is #255).

Batgirl00

Coming from the third series of Women of DC busts and designed by comic artist Amanda Conner, here’s another awesome Batgirl bust! Once again, they went with Barbara Gordon, and once again it’s a really cool collectible. I’d like to see some of the other Batgirls get their own collectibles, but the Babs ones they’ve put out all have been fantastic, so I can’t complain. This one is limited to 5000 pieces (mine is #2085) and captures Batgirl in the middle of her famous dance number in the Jack Rabbit Slims dance contest.

PowerGirl00

A long while back I posted photos of the Supergirl bust based on Amanda Conner’s designs, and today’s collectible is from the same series but based on what has come to be something of a signature character for her, Power Girl! Power Girl is a character that would be very easy to marginalize with her ultra cheesecakey costume design and overall silliness, but Conner has done some really great stuff to make her relevant in DC and in comics in general. Sometime I’ll post pictures of the other Women of DC Power Girl bust that was designed by Adam Hughes, but this Amanda Conner one handily trumps his.

Back in September I posted about the Supergirl bust from DC Direct, designed by comic artist Amanda Conner. Last week the next piece in that same line released, this time featuring Zatanna. Much like Supergirl, this isn’t the first time Zatanna has been included in the Women of DC collection. The first time was several years ago when Adam Hughes designed a bust for the very first series. I’ll get around to taking better pictures of that one eventually, but I do have one shot in my Flickr gallery of that original bust. I definitely think the new Conner bust trumps the Hughes one, even if I do love the goofy pose and expression Zatanna has in that original. The new one is a lot more dynamic, and I really love everything about the base, from the curling book pages to the gargoyles in back to the translucent spell fire at the point where Zatanna is coming out of the tome. I’ve posted higher resolution shots in my Flickr, where you can see lots of other toys and collectibles as well.

Women of DC Series 3 Supergirl Bust

I’ve been working on setting up my office in the new house, and I turned a corner of it into a mini-photography studio over the past week. The goal is for me to have a convenient place where I can take more pictures of all the crazy stuff I collect. I’m going to try to do photos of everything I add into my collection from this point forward, and I’ll also go back and try to catch up on some of the older stuff I haven’t previously taken pictures of. It’s starting this week with the new Supergirl bust from DC Direct’s Women of the DC Universe series. The current line is designed by comics artist Amanda Conner. I’ve posted higher resolution shots on my Flickr, and you can see all my previous photos there as well.
