It is funny that catwoman is the first one released at that price by Koto. After all, she is a thief and she is stealing our money from under our noses.

I agree with what some people said, I also like this one more than the original one.

There are a ton of statues that donít represent the characters but they all seem to have followers.

I think you should unload them if you can do without them.... you don't need a whole collection if you're not a huge fan of the characters. Maybe be more selective of the DC ones and only have the characters you really love?

I used to be a massive fan of kotobukiya, but their recent price hikes are just too much for these smaller scales... I'm going to finish collecting the Bat Family Ikemen set and then I'm out for good. I'm not even going to let myself get the Joker Ikemen cause then I know it'll just drag me to get one more, and so on. Also will be avoiding the newly revealed Premier line. If that stuff is 1/6, then for the $300 (?) they'll charge, I'm better off getting an XM piece.

Kotobukiya used to offer a great alternative to everyone who didn't want to splurge on larger scale statues. Their reasonable prices were what got me into collecting in the first place. That no longer seems to be the case, but idk if it's kotobukiya's fault. It seems every statue/collectible figure company is hiking prices across the board.

I agree. Lately, it seems DC has been double dipping with 2nd editions (Zatanna, Starfire, Raven, Powergirl) or the-releases of their more popular characters (Wonder Woman, Catwoman, Harley Quinn, Supergir) whereas some major characters are still AWOL. DC has yet to release Hawkgirl or Jesse Quick or the New Green Lantern for example.

Marvel on the other hand is a bit more consistent. I myself am trying to unload everything but my X-men Bishoujos plus Ms Marvel (love me some Ms Marvel). I just feel like with Disney having bought out Marvel and soon Fox as well that theyíll interfere too much. Captain Marve for example was delayed with no release date in sight.

I as well preferred the 1st Wonder Woman and 2nd Supergirl except I much prefer classic Harley over the New 52 version. Iíve been at times tempted to sell my smaller 1/8 scale x-men Bishoujos except I doubt that Marvel would ever let Kotobukiya release them all in 1/7 scale like they did Psylocke.
