I came away from this with a few thoughts:
1. I am soooo tired of Harley Quin
2. They have some interesting new things
3. That classic Superman is pretty sweet
4. I'm getting that Batman black and white that is suspended by his cape!

I too think the Batman black & white cape statue looks terrific, and I actually like the Batman versus Harley piece as well...


One More Statue and I am Done

The Harley vs. Batman statue is interesting to me, but purely on a technical level. Impressive in it's complexity, but as Mister H says, Harley is being way too overdone.
The others....meh.
The Justice League movie statues are a little horrifying. Not only does that not look like Jason Momoa, but I can't believe all the crap they added to Aquaman's beautifully simple costume for the movie. And that Flash....ugh.
And I wonder who exactly is buying these "Bombshell" statues that they're proliferating like a virus.

1. Agreed. They are so over doing Harley.
4. I really like it to. I have been trying to stay away from the Black and White series. I do not need to start a new line.

If agree TF. The Batman vs Harley looks good just nothing I need
Those Justice League toys looks TERRIBLE and it scares me that the movies are going to be disastrous.
I sure the same people that are buying the Bishoujo that Kotobukiya are pumping out as fast as they can.

That would be me. Not all of them, but I really like some of them. I have Mera, Lois Lane and Wonder Woman, and I want Batwoman but the statue has a reputation of terrible paints and poor quality control so unless I can get it dirt cheap I will pass...

Yes, too much Harley.

The Bat v Harley only bothers me ( Simpsons comic book Guy voice) I don't know a time that Bat faced her in those duds . . .

Finally we have some new Black and Whites worthy of purchase.

So weird. My LCS, which rarely has Omnibus for sale because "they don't sell well," have all of bombshells on display . . . not selling.

I don't like them. But I guess there is someone out there buying. The XM Batman Knight of the Rising Sun series has me scratching my head the same way.

I am not a fan of the Bombshell statues but the ones that I have seen in person I thought were very well done.

I can agree that there is too much Harley lately but she is DC's newest cash cow so it is only natural that she is going to be treated the way that Marvel treated Wolverine for decades.

I can't help but think, with Tim Miller doing a lot of these "Bombshells", how much more likely I would be to buy them if they were not so stylized.
I really wish they'd have him do some straight "Covergirls" statues. The vast majority of those are just so lackluster, IMO. I haven't bought one since Karen Palinko's fantastic "Bleez" statue, although the upcoming "Hawkgirl" statue does pique my interest quite a bit.
