I have the WW. In person, I don't think she looks Asian at all.

I understand about Superman though. I'm not a fan of the Asian faces on Caucasian heroes either. I skipped all of Koto's New 52 hero line for that reason. I don't like the early bishoujos, too.

Having said that, this Wonder Woman probably has the best female face Koto has ever done, IMHO.

Agreed. The New 52 Superman is just the furthest thing from Superman that I can imagine. Flash and Green Lantern aren't bad in that line.

I've seen the Wonder Woman in person a few times and it is a good looking statue, just a little too anime for me. Wish KOTO would do a classic comic line, similar to Diamond Select.

I would love if they made more like this Wonder Woman



May be the best face I've seen on this scale of a statue.

I'm happy with this line, I think the artist has been doing a really good job emulating the style of Jim Lee.

I don't think Superman has an Asian look, at least for the one that I have (first edition). Neither does the Wonder Woman.

Nothing against Asians at all. But, they look like Asian Americans. I know it's the look of Jim Lee's art. I just prefer the more classic look.

Just got this, after a long wait and a longer journey.

The eyes on this are unbelievable. I have no idea how they did that. They look too real.

Hands down two of my favorite statues in my collection are the ArtFX Wonder Women:
