Jason’s Collection: Women of the DC Universe Busts

The Officially Cool Collector's Corner

I usually feature the coolest collectibles related to whatever big movie is coming out each week, but since there aren’t any big toy-type movies on the way, I’m taking the opportunity to dig into my own personal collection to show off some things that I think are officially cool. This week’s feature is all about the Women of the DC Universe line, produced by DC Direct.

Women of DC Universe Collectibles

This series of mini busts features the good and bad girls of DC Comics, and they run the gamut from A-listers to lesser known femmes. Each bust is a limited edition and stands between 5 and 6 inches tall. DC Direct began this line with pieces based on the art of good girl artist and collectible fan extraordinaire, Adam Hughes. Adam’s wave of busts began with Wonder Woman and included the likes of Catwoman, Harley Quinn, Hawkgirl, Batgirl, Big Barda, Zatanna, Black Canary, Poison Ivy, Starfire, Power Girl, and Supergirl.

The second wave of busts also began with Wonder Woman (this time shown in the midst of changing out of her Diana Prince secret identity), but the newest busts feature sculpts based on the art of Terry Dodson. The busts released to date in wave 2 include Wonder Woman, Cheetah, Batwoman, and Wonder Girl. On deck for release are a new version of Catwoman, Huntress, Jade, and Mary Marvel in her Shazam costume.

With few exceptions, all of these busts are great collectibles, and they are fantastic pieces for any DC fan. Heck, I’m not even that much of a DC fan and am collecting these things as quickly as they’re produced. With the variety and number of characters being featured, you even could just collect the specific fandoms you’re into and still have an impressive collection (Girls of Gotham, Wonder Woman and friends, etc).

I’ve reviewed a few of the busts individually on Mechazilla. Take a closer look:

Many of the previously released busts are still available for sale in comics shops and online, but the best way to get these things is by preordering them before release. Enjoy your DC girls, and I’ll see you next week!
