Bear with me as I try to clear the backlog of pre-move purchases! These are goodies though:

I do like Raven, but I quickly learned she takes up a lot of space with that cape. I had to put her at the back. Nice one Andy!

They both look really good. Still not sure if I'll pick up my first bust with Deathstorm in July. I sure would like to see a Firestorm solicited before then.

There still seems to be a good deal of life left in the line, so I'd be hopeful of that.

DC Direct has some really great lines, like this one.
I recently acquired Jade and Batwoman, pre-ordered Harley Quinn v2, because I won't be missing out on any Harley merchandise ever again (if I like it), won the Amanda Conner Catwoman on eBay for $35 yesterday, and I am 3.5 hours away from winning (hopefully) the recent Supergirl bust too.

For as much as I said I'd be cutting back this year (in some thread about our collecting habits), I've gone completely in the other direction.  And I love it!

Oh, and I won Starfire, too.  Don't know what I'm going to do with it though, my wife will probably flip out if she sees that one in my display.  Does anybody want it?  Maybe trade for one I could display?

 Cheesy

You crack me up. Y'know you could try your hand at customising and paint the orange skin of her chest a different colour to make it look like she's wearing more.

I'm not sold on that one, I have to say. A bit too much happening, and the cat it a bit too kitsch. Shame too because Selina herself looks fine.

While this bust is a green version of Poison Ivy, I still ended up liking it a great deal. Hope you do to!

Enjoy!

It's nice to see some classic pieces now and then mixed into the new stuff. You're spot on in that Connor's art suits the look well.

Good stuff Andy!
