Oh Sweet Irony! Power Girl Gets Her Own Bust!

Power Girl Mini Bust

I saw this Power Girl mini bust in last month's Previews, and have been trying to blog about it since then. Unfortunately, tasteful dialogue has escaped me.

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?

Hmmmmm, usually I prefer complete statues to busts (but prefer busts to statues in real life, ummmmm, sorry, ha ha!) but this one would be great to own. And get signed by Ammanda Conner and some of the other greats that worked on that story arc in JSA: Classified...

It is such a cool pose, and Power Girl is a definite favorite of mine, so this was a "MUST HAVE" purchase. I don't remember her having anything but an action figure before, so this is very exciting.

Cute quip, by the way.

Have a great day, Carl!
