Pic of the Day 157

Catwoman, Women of the DC Universe, Series 3 - Amanda Conner, by DC Direct.

Wow, I have been horribly lazy at posting pictures lately, which is a huge shame, as I've recently got some great items. Of particular interest, I finally started getting into two lines which I've been interested in from the start, the Women of the DCU busts (now I think it's just called Heroes of the DCU, since they stopped restricting themselves to female characters - and actually, since Joker, Darkseid and Sinestro are also being released in this line, I wonder if it's actually Heroes and Villains of the DCU), and Ame-Comi Heroines line (actually, since they released Batman a few figures ago (which, coincidentally was the first I actually bought) it has also been renamed to Ame-Comi Heroines and Heroes). I'm horribly behind on both lines, the bust line I would definitely be a completist in, if I could afford it, but most those from the first series, based on Adam Hughes art, are expensively hard to find. And sadly, most of the early Ame-Comi's are similarly expensive, in fact, two of my very most wanted from that line sell from $70-$120 on eBay, which is 2 to 4 times retail price at the beginning of the line (when it was $30), though that's only twice suggested retail now (most having an MSRP of $60-$70), though thankfully I've been able to get some of the newer ones for under retail. But I'm talking too much in a post that should really be just a picture, so I'll stop now.

I like the design and color of this bust.
