This must not have been a limited run. All the other Covergirl statues show how many were made and which number you have bought. Raven has no number on the base or box showing how many were made.
Wow, is your Supergirl ever leaning. Is there a way you can straighten her out?

Just got the time to shoot my Starfire Covergirls. Great sclupt with a rather sloppy paint job, but overall a decent piece.

I have tried everything to straighten out Supergirl. Even tried to heat up the peg with a hair dyer so it would bend easier, and that didn't work. I'm not to sure what else to do without damaging her.

Raven was leaning a bit to when I first put her in the base. But I thing I got her fixed for now.

Mine fortunately doesn't lean, but I've found that some statues that lean are due to the peg fitting loosely in the hole. If you thicken up the peg with tape, it may solve the problem, if that is the problem with yours.

Got Raven today.. No leans or any issues.
Strange thing, i can't see a serial number or edition size..??

I also hv a non leaning supergirl, since i'd seen some real bad ones, i waited till i got a good one at a good price.

There is no numbers or edition size for Raven. I guess it will be that way for future statues as well.

Thanks Bro.. No longer are we a limited edition collectible statue..

A friend of mine had the Supergirl leaning as well, he put in some blue tack and positioned her in a different angle than what it goes in... and it worked, i guess you've already tried that..

I'm about ready to get some glue and see if I can glue her to the base straight. I'm not overly concern since I really think she is the worst statue in this collection. I wish she would have been in a museum pose like all the others.

Are you sure you have the base turned correctly? She will fit in the peg hole more than one way.
