Diamond Select Batgirl Statue

Post by danbar » Thu Mar 19, 2015 9:14 am

This is now available to pre-order for $179.99 at Entertainment Earth and Big Bad Toy Store. Entertainment Earth is offering free shipping.
Price is considerably higher than I hoped it would be. I'm a little bit torn. I do think it is very nice and I would really like to have it.
Is anyone planning to get this? Anyone holding out for the Tweeterhead Batgirl? Anyone plan to get both?

This is NICE. It's a definite purchase for me, my collection is really lacking in Yvonne.

To me that statue is lacking in Yvonne. The costume is there, but the face isn't.

Love Clay's stuff, but he missed the mark here. A nice piece, but as with all the Diamond merch this one falls short IMO.

I was happy to see this coming out only to be disappointed by the price. She is about $80 more than I was hoping. I think I'll pass, for that money I'd rather wait and see what Tweeterhead has in store. For now I guess I need to paint my Johnny's Resin Batgirl kit as my collection is lacking Yvonne too ;)

I thought Batgirl's cape had scallops just as Batman's did?? :? :?

For a bit more, the Tweeterhead will be heads and shoulders above this. Having said that, we all need more Yvonne. I will eye this one for sales down the road, but so far, I'm planning on the Tweeterhead for sure.

The Diamond Select is a good rendition, but the Tweeterhead is dead-on!!!! I collect the Diamond Select busts and I'm happy with those. I've avoided Tweeterhead because they are very expensive if you're going to start collecting the whole line. That said, when they put out Caesar Romero's Joker I'm going to have a very, very hard time saying "no" as Tweeterhead is the only company so far that is capable of 100% exact image likeness. If they did a False-Face then that would completely blow the doors off the whole '66 Batman merchandising wave! :shock:

IMHO, The tweeterhead sculpt is amazingly good. Couldn't be more perfect. The Diamond statue leaves much to be desired. The face, body proportions, color, costume accuracy…I can't really find anything I like about it. There is a certain silhouette that is associated with 60's fashion (due to the bras and undergarments worn at the time) and when that is overlooked, I feel the whole classic 60s Batgirl feel is lost.

that being said, can't wait to see the Tweeterhead piece as it continues!

I see that the Diamond Select Catwoman statue is now available to pre-order with expected ship date of Feb-March 2016. Has anyone heard if they plan to expand this line? I purchase the busts and have been happy over-all with them.
