Great work putting this together. IMO, the Hughes line is still the most impressive.

Thanks!

I wonder if the Wave 2 Wonder Woman was inspired by DC's first Wonder Woman statue all the way back in 1995?







I found some interesting pictures showing how the prototypes differed from the final production pieces.

Platinum: black trim on the base


Supergirl: blue/red base instead of yellow/red base


Huntress: The statue faces "forward" instead of being turned roughly 45 degrees to her right.


Mera: dark blue water, fins on her calves

Just wanted to share some pictures showing how complicated these statues can be. Huntress's cape is held in place by two wires. Her legs have metal wires even though her feet are glued to the stand. Batwoman's cape is held in place by hinges that slot deep into her shoulders. Black Canary's head is held in place in the high collar with glue and a metal wire.

The metal wires in the legs are not to keep them on their bases (so glued or not, it doesn't matter). It's to make pieces more resistant despite the fragile nature of the material. Exactly like buildings using concrete over metal armature. I suspect the same can be said for capes and such...

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

This happen to your statues Gothamite? Do you need help on how to repair them. I unfortunately have some experience on how to fix them with out even seeing the seams when there glued back.

This Zatanna can be a potential Jubilee.
