Diamond Gallery: Supergirl

This is another statue that is kind of left field. I preordered her for some time back and since it took a long time until BigBadToyStore shipped it, I almost forgot about the Maiden of Steel. But here she is! And how is she? Well, let's go check out Diamond Gallery's Supergirl, shall we?

Diamond Gallery is no stranger in my collection. Last year I bought the Diamond Gallery Spider-Woman, which I personally liked. Their PVC Diorama produces some pretty cool characters with some interesting poses and when I saw Supergirl's promotional pictures, I thought she had a flare that I definitely needed to have in my collection. Now as far as the box goes, it's pretty simple. It's got Supergirl's color scheme, her name, her logo, there's see through panels, so all in all it does its job. It's huge too, mostly because it is accommodating for Kara's dynamic posture, the stand, and giving enough room to make sure that the statue can be seen despite being inside the box. I think Diamond Gallery does a good job keeping simplicity with their boxes as well as making it practical. I definitely like it.

The back of the box shows the image of the product, a bio, and a comic book image. The drawn image is something I don't personally like since the face doesn't really capture Kara's essence; the and its' for the "Rebirth" Supergirl and not for the "Jim Lee" Supergirl--the one this statue is based of.

I wouldn't have even considered this statue if it's not for the fact that it's based of my favorite Supergirl iteration. I nickname her as "Jim Lee Supergirl", since this outfit was her revival outfit under Jim Lee's artistic care. It's definitely a lot of fan-service since she shows a lot of skin; a flouncy skirt for flight and that midriff! I also like her younger but mature look. I also like the way her hairstyle is done so, yeah, this is my Supergirl.
