Reason to Win the Lottery #2: Power Girl & Huntress Statue

It's official. I am drooling over this statue. It features my favorite ladies together on one piece, and I never thought I would ever see the day it would be done. The late 1970's versions of Power Girl and Huntress are amazing, and I used to be so thrilled when issues of All Star Comics, Batman Family, Wonder Woman, and Infinity Inc would come out so I could follow their adventures. To see their partnership memorialized in statue form is almost too much.

I really wish I could buy this.

Stats for this gorgeous work are as follows:

"POWER GIRL & HUNTRESS: LEGACY STATUE
Sculpted by Tony Cipriano
As a member of the JSA, Power Girl: The Kryptonian cousin of Superman - a legacy of light. Huntress: Follows in Batman's footsteps - a legacy etched in night. Together for the first time in a DC Direct statue, this limited-edition, hand-painted, cold-cast porcelain statue measures approximately 11.75" tall x 6.5" wide x 5.5" deep.

Advance-solicited; on sale November 28, 2007 o Statue o $195.00 US "

Incredible. Anyone else think this is the coolest? I am in heaven considering it, and in hell knowing it is too much money.

I'm more into action figures I can pose and take pics of, but this is quite lovely.

Ooh! This statue is absolutely beautiful. I don't normally collect statues, but, this is beautiful. I totally agree with you. I might consider this one, too...but, yeah, you're right, it's probably, too expensive. But, sometimes, it's nice to treat yourself, no?

Shelly, I think because of the characters in this, it makes it really special. I love action figures as well, and have been upset lately that I haven't been able to afford them. There is the occasional one I can't resist!!

This statue just melts me. It is incredible. :-)

Loren, I am scheming how to get this for my birthday as I write this. Hee hee! I don't know if I will be able to pull it off, but I am trying to figure out how to work it out. I like the way you think, my friend!!
