Designed by the great Adam Hughes and sculpted by Jack Mathews at DC Direct, this brand new statue of the beautiful Hawkgirl is the latest addition to the beloved COVER GIRLS OF THE DC UNIVERSE collection, which celebrates some of DC’s greatest women through Hughes’ pin-up style art.
Hawkgirl, the winged warrior and partner to Hawkman, is a deadly fighter and a valuable member of the Justice League. She flies into battle wielding her signature mace, an incredible, heavy weapon that can “pulverize concrete and smash steel”.
Here are the specs: An original design by Hughes, this statue is hand-painted, cold-cast in porcelain, measures approximately 9.3″ high x 4.25″ wide x 4.25″ deep (including the base), and is packaged in a 4-color box.

Hawkgirl, Green Arrow, Deadman and Aquaman have finally arrived as the members of DC Direct’s new line. Based on the recent and hugely popular company-wide event, BRIGHTEST DAY, these 6-inch figures faithfully capture the best and most dynamic looks of these characters as they appeared on the pages of the connected comics.
You can grab these guys individually or as a set and they work great as both functional and display figures. Already planned are two more series to follow this one, where you’ll be able to snag Firestorm, Hawkman, Martian Manhunter and Mera (Series 2) and then Aqualad, Dove, Hawk and Jade (Series 3). Of course, if the wait is killing you, you can pre-order and make sure you get ‘em sent your way the second they’re shipped out!

Adam Hughes might be the greatest cover artist in comics today: he has an old-fashioned pin-up style and a way of drawing women that has captured the attentions of fans the world over. From the beautiful bodies to the brilliantly-rendered, unique faces, his art has been the inspiration for a ton of great DC and Marvel collectibles and we’ve now got a brand new item to add to the list. Take a look:
An original design by Hughes, this statue is hand-painted, cold-cast in porcelain, measures approximately 9.3″ high x 4.25″ wide x 4.25″ deep (including the base), and is packaged in a 4-color box.
Hawkgirl is captured in repose, standing with her massive mace on the floor, a sweet yet playful smile on her face. You can pre-order now and she’ll ship in July!

“BRIGHTEST DAY is about second chances. It’s looking at twelve characters that have been resurrected and examining whether it’s a miracle or a curse. Some second chances work out… some don’t. BRIGHTEST DAY is the next step in repositioning a lot of characters in the DC Universe and pushing them to the next level.”
As Blackest Night comes to a close, are you ready for the dawn of DC’s new event, BRIGHTEST DAY? With a great collection of writers and artists collaborating on the comics and storylines, the next few months should be a pretty great time for fans of the heroes and villains they can expect to see along the way.
And, of course, the fact that something new is beginning also means that DC Direct is rolling out the new figures and I am very pleased to say that they look absolutely great. Standing 6 inches tall, brilliantly sculpted based on the new looks of the characters and the new art style of the event, they’re only the first series of what will surely be a very nice-looking collection. Check out the first four below, snaggable either individually or as a set! They can be pre-ordered now and ship in March 2011!
AQUAMAN (March 2011)
DEAD MAN (March 2011)
GREEN ARROW (March 2011)
