I always ask myself, do I love what I am seeing here and can I afford this?

If I can say yes, to both, and this is something I really must have. I'll pre-order and never look back.

This is a fine statue, and would be wonderful to own, but it's not a must have for me.

We've all been there (Green Arrow).

Although the pricing on this seems absurd to me when Iron Studios released a 1/3 scale Hawkman for twice the cost.
Just wait until SS releases Hawkman for $775.

I definitely can see that point

When I first started getting statues other than some DC direct I was buying exclusively Bowen. When I was purchasing them I was like “I had to have all the avengers”, “I had to have all the X-Men” etc. and then kind of realized I’m just buying some of these to be a completist and I didn’t need to be one.

Now that I am pretty much just exclusively picking up Tweeterhead I am pretty much looking at them as though “do I really love the character or not”. Even though he produced fantastic Superman and Wonder Woman statues and they are characters they both like I just don’t feel the need to own them.

This Hawkgirl statue is fantastic and I do like it’s more of a throwback to Shayera instead of Kendra.

The EX portrait looks great. The normal head has beady eyes. The could have may the eyes on the mask/helmet a little bigger. But over an excellent sculpt and design.

The quickest way to double your money is to fold it in half and put it back in your pocket.

4) if production pictures come out great then quickly order the EX
5) When the ES is high + must-have + production pics are good, wait for a good deal on the aftermarket.
