I decided to purchase this beauty a couple weeks ago. I felt that I was running out of chances to get the “Local Comic Shop Day” (LCSD) edition. It seems like there are only a couple available on the secondary market. It was also suggested by a couple fellow collectors that they preferred this version over the original. So I took the plunge and I am glad that I did.
I ended up paying approximately $115 shipped for this piece. Which is still below suggest retail of $125.
Currently, she is only available on the secondary market. DC does tend to produce their pieces in multiple production runs. I am not sure that is the case with this release since it is a variant produced for LCSD.
- Nod to Julie Christie in Doctor Zhivago – it would be interesting to know if that was intentional.
- Adorable fashion sense – I love the figure skater skirt, detailed sweater, leg warmers and ice boots.
- Skis over skates – I am glad they gave her skis over making her the stereotypical female ice-skater.
- Extraordinary details:
- The portrait – Beautiful face with hair curls and earrings.
- The icy crystals on the hat and boots.
- Texture and design of the sweater and leg warmers.
- The flow of the skirt and scarf.
- This is the cleanest painted bombshell piece I have seen to date. It is literally immaculate.
- The glittery finish on the variant really makes it pop.
- I love the vibrant skin-tone and hair color.
This is a must if you are collecting the bombshell line. It is just… fantastic.
I wasn’t too sure about the price hike, but after seeing the huge improvements on production paint…I think it is worth it.
You can still get the bombshells from retailers below $100.
If you missed out on the variant and don’t want to shop ebay or other secondary market options. I would recommend getting the regular.
