Default New Sideshow Wonder Woman

I really like this - a lot more than I would expect to, given the deviation from the classic look. But this seems to be a blend of Lynda Carter and the modern incarnation, and I actually like it a lot.

I'm with you also. For me, this is the first statue I've seen of her that actually maker her look...Amazonian. In my mind that means she's a little "thicker", but still has the curves. The only two modern artists I know that draw her like that are Cliff Chiang and Frank Cho.

You nailed it.

Now I have to figure out how to justify the cost of this beautiful piece...

Would love to get this piece, but probably won't due to space. I'm waiting to see how the new Batman PF turns out. May want to get the Supes as well.

Looks good! Agree that she is "thicker".
Did anyone see the Superman? It looks good too, but I prefer the classic costume.

Let's see. Nowadays, I seldom PO Sideshow until I see the actual piece. I thought the Wonder Woman Movie Version PF head sculpt looks good in 'first look' preview.

And, they updated the pics recently.

Almost pulled the trigger tonight. But tax pushes it up to $600 before shipping. I just can't....
Can I?

I think you should. IMO that WW is one of the best super hero statues I've ever seen. It'll end being the equivalent of the Bowen Classic Thor or Classic Cap. You could sell a couple of your 800 Captain Americas to justify the cost.

"Sell"? What is this "sell" you speak of?
