Oh Sweet Irony! Power Girl Gets Her Own Bust!
Power Girl is one of my favorite characters, as you may know. Since All Star Comics #58 way back when, I have been rooting for Earth 2's Girl of Steel. Of course I had to order this. I just fear the glances and comments that will come my way when I go pick her up at the comic book shop. I may have to resort to violence and self deprecation just to make it through paying for her.
Seriously, the piece looks very cool. I love how Power Girl is doing the whole "biceps" pose. I consider it an excellent addition to my ever growing mantle of powerful females.
The biggest drawback: Her size. I'm not kidding.
I bought the Wonder Woman bust from this collection and was pissed at how it ended up looking way too similar to a Pez dispenser for my tastes.
Here are the specs:
"this limited edition, hand-painted, cold-cast porcelain bust measures approximately 5.625" tall x 4" wide and x 2.25" deep, and is packaged in a four-color box."
That isn't exactly big BUT I guess that is why it is called a "mini bust" and not something else!!
At any rate, the bust ships in Mid January 2007 so I have plenty of time to stew until then.
Did anyone else order this?
