That is a very nice piece.  Think I'm gonna be picking these up.

I want to see villains of the DCU as a companion though.  Ya know, have GL one month followed by Sinestro....Aquaman followed by Black Manta or Ocean Master(how cool would that be?) 

I mean, Marvel has a Tiger Shark bust out, Is DCD really that unsure of their following that we only see the very top tier of characters?

I was a little disappointed, I liked the earlier HAl bust released with most of the JLA .... Most....

Its the green flame that should have made this one go off! But the paint looks a little tame.

But I suppose it would be a great companion to the Jade bust.

I have yet to decide.....  Tongue

The depth of the Marvel busts is amazing. Some are downright obscure. I guess we have to give DCD props for taking the Women of the DCU line past the A-list (Mera!) and as I said on the blog I am really hoping that this line goes the same way as opposed to stopping at the first tier. The villians especially need to be explored. While I'm not down for Darkseid I would certainly go for Sinestro, Black Manta, Bane, etc.

I do like the DC "men" busts but it's another line and I get too many things as it is so I'm gonna pass.

As an aside, Bowen has only a limited time left on his contract with Marvel, hence the large volume of output we're currently getting.

Oh dear, I hope we get a few more key characters before they finish. We need Valkyrie, Moondragon and more, more, more!

Not that I'm aware of. Apparently he negotiated some contract to produce X number of statues and busts and because it took so long to get underway his timeframe has been reduced, hence the cranking out of so much stuff. Each variation of a statue counts as 1 less he has to produce. For example the new Hulk statue has been produced as Green, Classic Grey, Red, Planet and Maestro.

Have you seen the new She-Hulk statue from Sideshow? It's the next one in the Adam Hughes series and it's amazing. The pose is very different to what I was expecting. There's not many pics at their site but if you watch the Hughes edition of 'Sideshow TV' they show lots of pics.

Yeah, it's a video blog about various stuff.

http://www.sideshowtoy.com/?page_id=6649&source=043009news&utm_source=newsletter-pers-043009news&utm_medium=email

Hughes said he wanted to keep the cheesecake of the series intact but just didn't want a 'pose' but he wanted a little fun as well. The final product is "What would happen if a 5' tall size 2 girl suddenly had to transform into a 6'8" powerhouse?"
