Introduction
The following is a guest review.  The review and photos do not necessarily reflect the opinions of Michael Crawford or Michael's Review of the Week, and are the opinion and work of the guest author. A guest review of Hawgirl statue from the DC Bombshells series by DC Collectibles:

The most recently released statue of the DC Bombshells line produced by DC Collectibles is the much anticipated Hawkgirl. Continuing in the theme of 1940s and 1950s pinup art, she was designed by Ant Lucia and sculpted by Tim Miller. Her edition size is 5200 and measures approximately 10.25” tall.

I’ve been a big fan of the style of the Bombshells series, and I must say Hawkgirl is one of my favorites.

This Golden Age character retains her classic yellow and green color scheme, but traded in her wings and headdress for a jetpack and helmet.

She is shipping now, and can be found in the $100 price range.

Packaging - ***
She arrived well packed in an attractive box. The front, and one side of the box boasts  close up pictures of her, the other side shows the original Bombshell artwork, and the back advertises Holiday Harley Quinn and Mera. I would’ve liked the original artwork to have been given more room and displayed on the back of the box.

Sculpting - ****
As I said earlier, Hawkgirl is one of my favorites of the line. She is an extremely faithful representation of the artwork, with the only noticeable difference is the loss of her dog tags. Although this is a stylized version of the character, there’s no doubt of who she is. 

Her base acts nicely as a launching pad, with her name plaque being a separate piece held in place by magnets. She is posed as if she’s just taking off, resting on the tips of her toes. The metal rods fit in snug and keep her in place. The smoky jet propulsion effect works well with a glimmer of yellow flame showing through, from the base of the pack. 

The winged (of course) jet pack is wonderful, with decos of “The Hammer” and her mace on both sides.  Her helmet has a strong resemblance of her winded headdress, and looks great with her hair peeking out.

One of my favorite design elements is the whimsical bubble she’s blowing. The material they used looks remarkably life-like.

Paint - ****
I was thoroughly impressed with the paint job on mine. Her intricate boots were sharp and clean, her face is lovely, and there was a lot of attention paid to her jetpack, including a number of tampo decals, two of which were of her aforementioned mace.

Value - ***
Sure she’s only 10+ inches tall, and will set you back $100, but you’re getting a quality piece of artwork for that price. I don’t have deep pockets, but feel she’s well worth the price.

Things to Watch Out For -
I had no issue with mine, but since paint can vary, always keep an eye out for a nice crisp representation if you have the opportunity.

Overall - ***1/2
They hit a homerun with Hawkgirl. From the nice box art, to the fun design art, and the amazing statue that came out of that artwork, I think she’d make a great edition to many a collection. I wan to add this little side story, when I was unboxing her, my wife, who is not a big fan of my collection, said, “Now that is a nice statue!”.
