STATUES AND BUSTS
ULTIMATE SHOWDOWN: SUPERMAN VS. BIZARRO STATUE SET
DESIGNED AND SCULPTED BY TIM BRUCKNER
The Ultimate Showdown series is DC Direct’s unique, new interactive concept for high-quality collectible statues featuring the world’s greatest heroes and villains squaring off in deadly combat.
Superman battles his imperfect duplicate, the backwards Bizarro.
Each character is displayed on a specially designed stand-alone base intended to “interact” with the other statues in the series and to be displayed in a myriad of ways. The statues can pivot independently on their bases and rotate their heads to customize and direct the action. Collect the other statue sets in the series! Mix and match them to create your own showdown or combine them all in one ultimate battle scene.
These hand-painted, cold-cast porcelain statues measure approximately:
Superman: 8.5” high x 5” wide x 5” deep
Bizarro: 7.75” high x 5” wide x 5” deep
Each set is packaged together in a 4-color box.

WONDER WOMAN #600 STATUE
BASED ON THE ART OF DON KRAMER
SCULPTED BY JACK MATHEWS
Paradise lost …
Concrete jungle found.
The gods of Olympus abandoned the Amazons, leaving Paradise Island to its destruction. As Amazons were slaughtered, Queen Hippolyta ordered her daughter smuggled away, as retreating warriors were scattered to the four corners of the Earth.
And now …
In a bolt of lightning and a rumble of thunder, Wonder Woman is back in black … and red, and blue. Diana rules over the rock ‘n’ rubble, ready to roll and take on those who still seek to destroy the refugee Amazons.
In biker boots and bracelets, the Amazon Princess screams dark and dangerous. Sleek and streamlined, Diana’s new costume oozes badittude and ready-for-fighting functionality. Inner-city smart and street-fighter savvy, this urban Amazon is heavy on metal and tough in leather.
With a new costume designed by Jim Lee, this statue is inspired by the variant cover of WONDER WOMAN #600. The statue is hand-painted, cold-cast in porcelain, measures approximately 9.75” high x 4.75” wide x 3.75” deep, and is packaged in a 4-color box.

AME-COMI HEROINE SERIES: RAVEN PVC FIGURE
SCULPTED BY SAM GREENWELL
OH MY GOTH!

Caped in swirling dark waves, this gloomcookie’s cloak of night locks in screaming lost souls, bats and beasts and terrors with teeth – including monster dad, the demon Trigon.

HARLEY QUINN 1:4 SCALE MUSEUM QUALITY STATUE
SCULPTED BY JONATHAN MATTHEWS
Bud and Lou … and Harley, too!
Madly in love with her spotted darlings, Harley Quinn takes her babies out for a walk, chain-link leash in one hand, pop gun in the other. Out for a stroll, they’re laughing all the way … to the bank.
Little Lou and Baby Bud each hold a piece of what Harley holds near and dear, but with a slice of fear: a stick of dynamite from her Puddin’, The Joker, and a ripped and torn Bat logo from the costume of a certain Gotham City hero.
This classic rendition of the Queen of Crime is the latest addition to DC Direct’s exclusive 1:4 scale museum quality statue series. Harley Quinn’s costume is exquisitely tailored and detailed, while various mixed media elements give this museum quality statue texture and visual interest.
The HARLEY QUINN 1:4 SCALE MUSEUM QUALITY STATUE includes hand-painted resin parts, measures approximately 16.5” high x 10” wide x 14” deep, and is packaged in a 4-color box.
