At 12 years old, Kara Zor-El escapes doom on planet Krypton to find protection on Earth with the Danver family, where she grows up in the shadow of her foster sister, Alex, and learns to hide the extraordinary powers she shares with her cousin, Superman. Now an adult living in National City and working for media mogul Cat Grant, Kara finds her days of keeping her abilities a secret are over when super-secret agency head Hank Henshaw enlists her to help protect the city's citizens from threats. Finally coming into her own, Kara must juggle her new responsibilities with her very human relationships.
Supergirl is the only CW comic book show I don't watch. I tried it but only made it half way through the first season. I only see her on the annual Arrowverse cross-overs but I do think that Melissa Benoist does great job in portraying her. I also respect the classic costume design as opposed to some new leather style outfit. With that said I knew I wanted to add her statue from Diamond Select Toys to my collection
I'm always so impressed with DC in terms of the television shows. They capture the look and feel of the comics that no movie has been able to match. With that said they understand that Supergirl, like Superman wen he first got here is a symbol of hope, hence the bright colored costume, and still a bit naive in terms of seeing good in everything. Hence the smile sculpted on Supergirl's face. Even the base she is on is colorful. It's definitely one of the more lighthearted sculpted statues I've seen, and I enjoy that.
You can clear as day see the smile and the eyes of wonder on the face. This is a very good likness of Melissa Benoist with a touch of comic book style added. You can see how well done the cheekbones accent the lips in terms of giving her the smile. Also notice how the eyes are bright yet realistic. I love how the hair is designed to flow and blow around. Etched in, shaded and painted golden yellow the hair looks great. I also love how her fists are clenched or battle but yet there is still a smile on her face. You can see the costume is faithful, from the vibrant blue to the red and yellow S on her chest. It's shaded, not to look battle worn like a lot of the statues, but shades to make other areas appear brighter. And let me tell you, when the light hits it just right this thing does shine.
This side view gives you a good look at how Supergirl's left arm it outstreched back with a clenched fist reasy to give the one two punch with the right fist. Notice how each finger is sculpted individually. You also see the extra effort done when presenting her leg. Look how the calf area is placed in the boot. You can see where there would be an actual bent opening on a real leg. I also like how her cape is blowing over to the other side leaving this side open for view. You can notce the shading in her skirt and throughout the costume. The hair even flows to the side to accent the view of the neck. Even her ear is sculpted to look real. The craftsmanship on this is just fantastic to say the least.
The back is pretty much cape. And that's cool because as you see in the front, the entire body is full desigbed and it's visable from the side. The cap turs primarily to the right and it's etched to show every line where it would be blowing and moving in the real world. The bright red colors with dark red shaded in really makes the cape come alive.
Finally we have the base. It's a pretty cool design. Crystals sticking out and placed on a clear see through bottom. I can't tell if it's supposed to be glass or ice but it's pretty cool. I like how the crystals are all around the boots. The boots look amazing and you can even see the wrinkles and indents in them where the foot is causing pressure.
Top to bottom another outstanding release from Diamond Select Toys. Pick this one up and add it to your collection
