    I apparently missed the hoopla when they were first announced, but I recently saw images of them in Previews...and lord help me I'm tempted to get Batgirl. If just to hear the anguished screams from the various die hard comic fans I know. :D 

    Ame-Comi Preview report

    I actually kind of like that batgirl fig. The others, eh.

    Will pick all of the up, but they could've at least given Power Girl bigger boobs! lol.

    Btw, that Casimir's collection of DC Direct and customs is very nice. I want my collection to look like that! Say, my collection DOES look like that. Just need me some nice shelves dammit!

    I have to laugh at some of the comments about Powergirl. The anime inspired one is actually SMALLER then how she's usually portrayed in the comics.

    In any case, they apparently have plans in the works for figures for Hawkgirl, Wonder Woman, Cheeta, Zatanna, Poison Ivy, and Harley Quinn too. The concept art for Hawkgirl is cute.

    I'm tempted to throw down a pre-order for Wonder Woman...but I've got roughly 8 mos. before she sees release so I'll just wait...

    I think these things are horrible. Batgirl isn't bad, but the rest are pretty freaking terrible. Catwoman looks even more like a dominatrix than usual; Supergirl is actually decent, but reminiscent of the current version that I really kind of hate; Power Girl's head sculpt is terrible, her costume is terrible, and someone in the design department really needs to be shot (not fatally, just in the hand so he can never draw anything this bad again).

    I've seen the designs for Wonder Woman and Cheetah, too. Wondy isn't bad, but they made Cheetah a damn catgirl. :banghead: 

    Keep in mind, though, that I'm pretty prejudiced here. I love comics but don't care much for anime.

    Got any links to these? The first four don't really do anything for me but those other characters might. I'm especially a fan of Ivy and Harley.

    I kind of like the Supergirl, but don't really like the design of her skirt. I'll probably pick up the Wondy just because I'm a sucker for any figure of her in armor.

    I'd like to see that Zatanna. ^_^

    ...Rise from your grave indeed. Let me see if I can find active picture links

    Wonder Woman

    Cheetah. Relevant to my interests. :p  (I LIKE Catgirls. Sue me :D )

    Harley and Zatanna Concept Sketches

    Power Girl, Hawkgirl, and Poison Ivy concept art

    Harley Concept Sketch

    Hawkgirl Concept Sketch

    As a note, all the concepts for these guys were done by Udon so...you know who to send your hate mail too.

    You DO realise that Cheetah currently IS a catgirl in the comics, right? :D

    I think that Batgirl and Supergirl look kinda neat, but I cant understand why people even buy this crap.

    Especially with some of the anime girl figures that are out there, they look like cartoon tarts.

    I'll probably get 1/2 of them. Some of them like Powergirl kinda fall apart when you get to the sculpt.

    She's more like Tigra from the Avengers, fur and claws (does she have a tail), but no big cat ears. The anime one is a conventional catgirl like Felicia from Darkstalkers. I know there are a lot of catgirl fans out there (I'm guessing you, for example, are passing fond of them), but I'm not one of them.

    Also, the Hawkgirl one looks like a Valkyrie Profile character. That's a good thing.

    Some of us like the aethetic. I'm not particularly wedded to it, but I like seeing different interpretations of familiar characters.

    As for how they're dressed, considering the typical comic heroine's outfit I dont think the comic book fan has much room for judgement :wink: 

    Felicia isnt the typical catgirl. The typical anime style catgirl just has the ears and sometimes the tail, they usually lack the fur or it's so fine you cant tell. Felicia (And this version of Cheetah) is more like a typical Furry catgirl crossed with an anime aethetic, Ame-Comi Cheetah more so as she's actually still got a bit of a cat-like muzzle for the most part.

    i have had Batgirl and Catwoman for a while now. The Batgirl in the pic is the limited one, and the powergirl looks terrible. I preordered the WonderWoman, which is the best, but the seller took my money and ran.

    Weird, I click the link and different pages pop up each time.

    I saw these last Feb at the New York Comic Con. Can't believe it took a year to release the first two. yeesh. I didn't get em out of spite. But I'm kinda glad, cause I saw em at a local toy shop and the paint jobs didn't really have that 'high quality' look to it. Looked like the typical assembly line paint ups which, for the price they charge for em, isn't fair.

    I like anime, but the style doesn't really mesh well with these characters, but that's my opinion.

    Anyway, I only liked Batgirl until now that they repainted her and ruined everything.

    Let's see how Harley Quinn will turn out.
