DC Direct/Kotobukiya Batgirl: So Shiny!

Barbara Gordon.   The best there was and always will be.  There are other Bat ladies out there now, but the Bat with the crimson hair will always be top on my list.

Kotobukiya teamed up with DC Direct this time around and has produced the best statue yet.   I was not a huge fan of the Marvel stuff, but when I saw this one in the store it had to be mine.

Batgirl has beautiful blue eyes that stand apart from the rest of her outfit.  A slight smile on her face shows she is having a good time… as she usually did.

Her cape is just so shiny.  It is amazing what they did with the paints.   There are a few different textures made from the paint.   The cape is like glass, or still has a wet quality.   Her gold accents are like a semi-gloss, but very bright.  Then there is the gunmetal gray color that is a flat paint, but has reflective qualities.

Koyobukiya seems to try and give their women a blowing-in-the-wind look to their hair.  Sometimes I think it has given them some problems with some of the other statues, but this one really works.

There are folds and creases and wrinkles and stretch marks in all of the right places from the areas of her body that are making the material strain in a turn, or the boots on her feet.   This is one of the most detailed statues I own.   I am really hoping this line will continue to be this nice.  I am really looking forward to Catwoman next.
