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.

Catwoman00

I have a huge backlog of collectibles that I got a long time ago but never got around to photographing properly. While I’m in between getting new stuff I’m delving back into the archives to take new pictures of these older pieces. Tonight I went on a spree with the first series of Women of the DC Universe busts from DC Direct. All of these were designed by Adam Hughes, and some of them are pretty hard to find these days. I’ll be posting those photos throughout the weekend and coming week, most likely, so brace yourself for a flood of DC superheroines and villains, starting with this Catwoman.

WonderGirl00

This Wonder Girl bust is another piece from the Women of the DC Universe collection that I got several years ago. Overall it’s a cool collectible, and I like the Teen Titans theme of the base a lot. What I don’t like is that Wonder Girl’s star earrings are basically pieces of shiny red star-shaped confetti that have been glued to the sides of her head. That’s only really noticeable when you look closely (like when you’re taking photos), and she looks just fine on the shelf alongside the rest of the characters in this line.

GreenLantern00

Just like Doctor Who fans have “their” Doctor, the one incarnation of the character that most personifies the overall entity and franchise for them, I have “my” Green Lantern, and he is Hal Jordan. I grew up watching Super Friends and playing with my DC action figures, and those were the superheroes I knew throughout the first part of my life. Later, when I realized some other folks were Green Lanterns as well, I was flummoxed. Hal Jordan 4 EVA, mostly due to nostalgia but also due to his clearly being the best Green Lantern.

MaryMarvel00

Just a quick update today, because I was busy seeing Star Trek and working and doing other time devouring stuff. This is the Mary Marvel bust from DC Direct’s Women of the DC Universe series. I took these photos a few years ago after she first came out.

Rorschach00

When the Watchmen movie came out, DC Direct released a line of action figures and busts based on the movie costumes of the characters. In a rare occasion when I didn’t feel compelled to collect the whole series of something, I only got the Rorschach figure and bust. The bust has Rorschach with his grapnel gun, and the base shows the countdown clock on one side and Rorschach’s signature on the other.

Batman00

This is the first of the three (so far) Batman busts that DC has released in their ongoing Heroes of DC series. The other two are a New 52 version and a Black Lantern version, both of which are sure to show up here with photos eventually. I really like the design of this one a lot, from the gargoyle base to the bat grapnel dangling from a wire cable.

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.
