DCU figures and statues!

Just saw some images of the new DC figures and statues coming out. Some of them are awesome! Others, not so much.

Let's start with the awesome!

Shazam Series 1 is pretty dang awesome, although I wish they'd've gone more with Sivana's Golden Age look (shorter, more forehead, less nose and chin). His current incarnation looks strangely like that meatpacking guy in Garth Ennis's PREACHER. (Also: I want Mr. Tawky Tawny! He better be in Series 2!)

I really like the facial expression on this Harley Quinn. It manages to be sweet and crazy at the same time, always a good thing for Harley, especially if she's packing a mallet. I don't want to think about how hard Mr. J. shoved to get her to fit in that jack-in-the-box, though.

This unmasked Babs as Batgirl is absolutely beautiful, though I prefer the classic uniform colors. What a gorgeous facial sculpt.

Short shameful confession: ...I kinda like this Power Girl sculpt. Yeah, it's boobtacular, but I love that facial expression, and her shoulders. Arms could be a little bigger -- it's Power Girl, after all -- but the pose isn't bad. Especially the grin.

OTOH, this Zatanna sculpt is on the lame side, *especially* the facial expression. They're trying to show her thoughtfully sticking her tongue out (as you do) while she rummages around in the hat, but it doesn't look thoughtful or (what I really suspect they were going for) sexy. Doesn't even look like a convincing tongue. Looks to me like she was eating a shrimp dumpling and suddenly realized she misplaced her car keys.

Is it me, or does Donna Troy have camel toe?

And finally, the *really excruciatingly* lame: anime-style Supergirl, Batgirl, Catwoman, and Power Girl. Actually, it's not so much anime as hentai. I don't know where to even start with these things; it's not just creepy porn; it's *bad* creepy porn. Open that link in another tab or something; I'll wait.

Let's take 'em in order:

SUPERGIRL. Wow, somebody looked at Michael Turner's art and said, "Not bad, but we need to sex it up a little." I actually like the face sculpt; it's a nice idea of what an anime Kara would look like. The rest of it... am I wrong, or does it look like she put a rubber band around her waist and slipped a bunch of paper napkins under it?

BATGIRL. I honestly couldn't tell that they were trying to represent Batgirl here for a minute. Man, that looks weird. Especially the black-on-gold bustier.

CATWOMAN. ...well, she's recognizable, at least. Her HMO won't cover the back surgery she desperately needs, and she's about to be dragged down by the weight of her boobs, but you can tell it's Catwoman. If, you know, that's important to you.
