Batman is a whole other story. They haven’t even nailed a broadly satisfactory 1/4 comic Batman yet after multiple attempts and that’s quite sad.
There are a great many people that would disagree with that though.

Oh, and the women, Batwoman, Huntress and multiple Batgirls, but we know DC female statues will always be made over males.

Well DC Direct has a little more freedom than Sideshow does as they are only producing DC Statues.

As for Batman and his Family and Villains I think they've done far better with them than with any other DC hero. hell Superman fans haveSupergirl, Powergirl, Lex and Darkseid and...we'll that's it.

Well it's about what sells to make the most profits. Think about this...If sideshow sells a new wolverine, hulk, spider-man etc.. Will it sell better than a B character? Most definitely! $$$$$$!

It's about time Sideshow delivered a new 1/4 She-HULK
The original 1/4 She-HULK by Sideshow sells for high prices, but it is on the skinny side. Mr W. Harbottle would be the perfect choice to sculpt a new She-HULK


Great portrait.. hint hint..

As much as everyone asks for the here and there one off character more people are willing to buy the favorites, and even multiples of those favorites.
I was most impressed with DCD's Arkham game based line. We got Riddler, Freeze, Nightwing, and only 2 Batmans. A shame they never came through with Scarecrow.... that was a great design (and sculpt was already done for their Batman B&W line).

Oh me too. Always regretted not picking up that bust.
