In the DC Previews for February 2009, there is an advance solicitation for a sweet statue of the old school Batgirl versus Catwoman. It is based on the designs of my awesome bud Matt Haley, so that makes it even more tempting.
The problem: I don't have the cash. Bummer!
My only quibble is that Catwoman's top is way more lowcut then I remember it being in the old comic books. Otherwise, I love it. The facial expressions are killer and the sheer poetry of motion is divine. Very cool.
Here are the specs:
CATWOMAN VS. BATGIRL STATUE
DESIGNED BY MATT HALEY
SCULPTED BY ANDY BERGHOLTZ
Gotham City’s female foes do battle in a CLASSIC CONFRONTATIONS statue!The latest addition to this line of statues sculpted by some of DC Direct’s premier talent features Batgirl confronting Catwoman as the feline fatale attempts to pull a bank heist. In a unique twist, not only does each figure’s cape suspend her in mid-air, but the capes act as bases on which the figures stand. Packaged as three separate pieces (Batgirl, Catwoman and the bank vault over which they are fighting), the statue can be set up in a variety of configurations. The Catwoman Vs. Batgirl Statue is limited-edition, hand-painted and cold-cast in porcelain. It measures approximately 8” high x 11” wide x 5” deep, includes a 4-color Certificate of Authenticity and is packaged in a 4-color box. Manufactured to order.
