I can see that on the body suit itself but the cape too? To me that just doesn't look right.

Picked this up today, I'm really pleased with it. Better than I thought, actually. Sorry for the cameraphone pic.

I'm still not 100% on the sculpt but must say the paint jobs on these new statues and busts look much better than some of the previous ones. (Starfire for example)

I went to a general store. They wouldn't let me buy anything specifically.

The face reminds me of when Lynda Carter as Wonder Woman, only this time WW is wearing the 52 outfit. By looking at the pic so far, WW statue's paint application looks decent.

Speaking of Starfire, I had to repaint my statue because the visible paint strokes were bothering me.

Yeah, I can see that. Which reminds me, I really need to pick up the Linda Carter statue!

Re Batman, I can see why people find the base a little on the large side, but I do really like it. It's just a shame this isn't an older vertion Batsuit, as it could make a great 'No Man's Land' statue. If the sculpt underneath is good I suppose he'd be a nice repaint.
(not that I dislike the new costume, but it'd be an option) At least this is completely different to the Sideshow one, so they don't have to compete so much. People could display both without one looking like a copy of the other.

I do like the original DCD Batman, but I think this one is better overall. The detail on his costume is excellent, something I also noticed on Batgirl. (see the underside of her glove) Unfortunately Batgirl's nose is just a bit big, she'll need to get that seen to. Surgery isn't so expensive these days.

The WW Lynda Carter statue wasn't too crazy about it because of the paint application. I decided to skip it.

With the Batman museum, I like it since as you stated, its different from SS's Batman PF. I'm certainly glad that the statue didn't come out as bad as I originally thought. What a difference photography makes! The Batgirl bust is good enough for me to purchase it and I hope the WW bust will look just as good. I don't have any high hopes with Supergirl though especially with the horrid blue eyeshadow.

They pretty much bungled that whole Reeve Superman/Carter WW/Keaton Batman trifecta because of poor paint apps. The busts turned out better than the statues, at least.

No, there's not really any excuse for the cape seams here.
