You take the fun out of everything....well not everything, just the stuff that requires pants by law!  :D

I'll pick my stash up next week. This weekend is devoted to the garden and new stash destracts me very easily  :P

I posted some pics early on but I need to do some reorganising. I've literally run out of space and Mrs 'shake won't let me start being creative and making 'comic box coffee tables' and the like!

Zatanna rocks - a really brilliant statue!

Zatanna - first time I actually sold out of a DC Direct case within a couple of weeks of getting it in.  ;D  I have some more coming in, but yeah, I can see what your LCS meant by it having the most pre-orders ever.

These look great.  OK, new rule: no more posting pics/updates about DC Direct statues!  No?  Well, I tried, lol.  You guys are going to make me start buying busts and statues, and i just don't think my already-strained wallet can take it!  :D

They really are quite striking and I'm glad I'm getting them. I've noticed my Bowen purchases dropping off considerably as I'm also getting the Hughes series from Sideshow.

If anyone was on the fence about Zatanna they should jump on it - I sold 10 of them yesterday on Amazon and eBay!!

Most of them went to Europe for some odd reason.....

Now for someone like me, that's pretty effing huge.  I think I have sold 10 Wonder Womans now, but it's taken a couple extra months.

If your LCS has it, and you are on the fence about it, you might want to jump on it as I'm predicting it will be one where the price starts to creep up on it.

Apparently Catwoman was supposed to be this week. But delayed again. I hope this doesn't mean a problem with the quality control? At least it's in time to add to my X-Mas list.  ;D

That's quite a nice piece.  I'll be trying to acquire Wonder Woman first, and I'm sure I'll never find her in my price range anyway, bud I'd get all of these statues if I could.  I don't even think my wife would have too big of issue with them.  Except for Z and PG.  For the boobage.

Dang, she looks great too.  Still want Wonder Woman most, but it's not like I can afford any of them.

The gloss black works really well!

I think Powergirl might be the last for me as I'm not interested in Harley.

It's funny how different our Mrs' react to things like this.Mine has never had a problem with scantily clad or even nuddy Statues or figs,and i have a few.She makes a comment for a bit of a stir once in a while but actually she really couldn't care less and the 1/8 Female Resin Kits i've built and painted she loves to show off to people.

I could watch porn and Mrs 'shake wouldn't care so long as it wasn't too loud that it would distract her from the book she's reading. However, I have many a statue/bust and she has commented that both the guys and the girls seem to be about as extreme as you can get physically. There's much comment about the busty girls, but let's face facts, workout as hard as you want but you aren't gonna achieve the muscle mass Superman has without the use of steroids. So really, the guys are as bad as the girls when it comes to real world expectations.

I got the PG statue and the Owlman Maquette on the same day. Mrs A saw the PG statue and said her typical "those boobs!", and then saw Owlman and asked why his penis wasn't hanging out.  ::)

Yeah, Infinite Crisis Power Girl and JLA Vixen are two of my girlfriend's favorite heroe figures. And since she reads like 350 fan translated manga a month and some of them (just a few) have tentacles and girls in the same page, she can't really say anything to my boobylicious PG.  :D

Post by: Scotty on February 13, 2011, 06:03:48 am
When I realised that the Poison Ivy edition of the Cover Girls of the DCU Statue series is about to come out, I decided I'd better get my pics and review of Harley Quinn up! "Better late than never" seems to be my theme at the moment!

Have a look at http://www.actionfigureblues.com/2011/02/dc-direct-clowns-around-with-harley.html and let me know what you think!

Oh, I just got Harley Quinn myself, and it is awesome.  She looks fantastic, and is one of my most favorite pieces.  Your pictures are very nice.

Post by: fishmilkshake on February 13, 2011, 07:50:19 pm
I was with you Andy, I was fence sitting with Harley (my LCS just automatically puts the new one away for me) and I got her to keep the series complete. Now that I've really had time to appreciate her I'm really happy I got her.

What's not to love about Harley?And being a Hughes Harley makes it all the more worthwhile.Great addition!

I'm up to looking at the Poison Ivy edition of the Cover Girls Statue series. I really like it, but it has some disappointing aspects in the QC department.

Check it out at: http://www.actionfigureblues.com/2011/04/dc-direct-gives-afb-poison-ivy-cover.html

Good review Andy and I agree with your thoughts about the green skin.

Post by: ryanlb on April 06, 2011, 01:24:43 pm
To repeat what I think I've said for every one of the Cover Girls statues: I likes it, I wants it, I'll try to get one cheap someday.  Harley is my favorite by far, by Poison Ivy ranks up in the top 5 if not the top 3.


Title: Re: AFB TALKBACK: Cover Girls of the DCU Statue Series: added Poison Ivy!
Post by: FB on April 07, 2011, 07:09:14 am
Yep,nothing original here to say either as i agree that her skin should never have become Green.Shame about the paint because that is one purdy Statue of the best look Ivy has ever had IMO.Hell of a line!


Title: Re: AFB TALKBACK: Cover Girls of the DCU Statue Series: added Supergirl!
Post by: Scotty on May 18, 2011, 08:25:32 am
Supergirl is the next in line for the Cover Girls series, and while I do have a minor niggle with it, she carried the line on nicely.

Check her out at http://www.actionfigureblues.com/2011/05/supergirl-breaks-into-dc-direct-cover.html

I just want to say (again) that I'm jealous of you having all these statues, they look fantastic, and I wish I could afford to get more of them.


Title: Re: AFB TALKBACK: Cover Girls of the DCU Statue Series: added Supergirl!
Post by: fishmilkshake on May 18, 2011, 04:44:38 pm
She's a fantastic addition to the line. I'm not a big fan of names on bases, so she's even better for that. Re: Batgirl, you'll give in. You know it, I know it, Batgirl knows it. Fun review Andy!

Having said that, the armoured Wonder Woman is the first in the series I'll be skipping so I shan't have a complete series either  [think]

Nice,but not my fave.The pose is excellent and dynamic but the Face Sculpt is just not as high a standard as previous offerings and let's it down just that little bit.Kinda what you said mate.Congrats.
