I can also say that I am sure that everybody who bought Lady Death (1 and/or 2), Vampirella (any of them), and Purgatori didn’t/doesn’t read the comics.

But please at least with one interchangeable head without moustache. The German fanbase (including me) will thank you!

I think we can ALL agree though we want both Sorceress and Man at Arms.
I prefer more characters over going back for 2.0 on existing ones. That said, plenty of male characters get 2, 3, 4, 5+ (Batman?!) statues made as well. I'd love Nightwing or Robin to happen for fans, but I don't see it as male/female divide, more a big name/smaller character issue. I love Wonder Woman, but I've been hoping for a Donna Troy or Cassandra Sandsmark before I add yet another Diana to my collection.

Sex sells, won't argue, but I do find it interesting within sub cultures a lot of female statue collectors are women and male statue collectors are men so I don't think statue purchases are driven just on that basis.

Ideally a line is complete and everyone is happy.

- classic catwoman 1500 es
- new catwoman 3750 total es

not to mention the two versions of harley quinn and two versions of batgirl

aside from batman the male characters released are:
- 2 jokers
- bane
- killer croc
- mr freeze (previewed)

2. its sad because people who want different characters like two-face or scarecrow may never see them because companies like SS know they wont sell as well as another version of the same female character theyve already done

for the record im all for sorceress getting made but i also want man at arms, battlecat, trap-jaw, beastman etc. tweeterhead does seem a little less one sided when it comes to releases though so hopefully everyone gets what they are looking for
If you focus down to one company and a single line I can see an argument. I could argue Prime 1 gave people Two Face and Scarecrow and never repeated female statues in their Arkham line.

I love their Justice League line (movie or New 52), but I always seem to get just Wonder Woman while there is Superman, Batman, Aquaman, Cyborg, Flash, and Green Lantern.

I completely agree I want more diversity in characters made, never argued against that.

I never claimed female don't get attention, but seems fairly even and varies line to line from manufacturers. I have no clue how a Nightwing or Flash (Barry Allen and/or Wally West) still haven't got a premium format.

Looking at MotU Line it has been pretty even and doesn't seem to be zero sum so hopefully in next three-five years everyone gets their favorite characters made.

Just looking at sideshow and DC Catagory

Several Batmans
Several Supermans
Black Manta
Green Lantern
Green Arrow
Black Adam
Mr Freeze

The list goes on ... Your literally looking at a page that atleast 75% is built up of Male Characters.

Goto Prime 1 site.. Looked at "Whats New" .. 7 Pages ... only 10 Female Characters..

If there was a true basis to the claim, it would be seen quite clearly ... Again as said goto a convention with anime figurines .. The majority is Female. However these Premium statues are not that clear cut, and def seeing more male characters dominate this part of the industry.
