A New Batgirl Review: Steampunk Batgirl from Ame-Comi Heroine Series by DC Collectibles
I mentioned above that Steampunk Batgirl comes with a removable stand. It's emblazoned with the "Ame-Comi Heroine-Series" label and features two pegs that plug into the holes on the bottom of Batgirl's boots. It's a pretty small base, but it's plenty large enough to keep her standing. Sometimes really small statues like this have enormous bases that take up far too much shelf space- not the case here! Batgirl also comes with an actual accessory too! It's a very fierce and wicked looking Batarang. It has a peg that fits into a hole in Batgirl's right palm. It might be tough to get in there, but gently work with it for a minute and you should be happy. She looks fine with or without the Batarang in case you want your statue to go back and forth between "I'm going to chuck this Batarang at you" and "I'm going to beat you down barehanded."
I'm really happy with this statue, much happier than I was with either of the two previous Ame-Comi Batgirls. I'll admit that while the style of the statue doesn't fit in with the previous Ame-Comi releases, I actually think that's for the better. This is a really strong statue and manages to capture some excellent costume design while still making Batgirl look tough and confident. I'm a bit disappointed at some of the messy yellow paint and don't like the hair design, but overall I'm quite pleased. I'm giving her a Great and a 1/2 and look forward to displaying her in my enormous Batgirl collection.
pick one up today at $10 off the MSRP!
