Statuesque

After recent commotion about representations of female characters in miniature form, I'd like to take a moment to show appreciation for when they get it right.

Here's a manga-fied Wonder Woman.

She's holding a sword and shield, in a pose that suggests she's ready to use them. There's some stylish detail work (click on the image to see it larger) and the costume actually covers more skin than the regular version, though it may look more skimpy due to the optical illusion of her having considerably more leg than usually depicted.





And here's Wonder Girl. I'm not quite sure what she's supposed to be doing, but it looks like she's about to cheerfully tie someone up.



See, toy sculptors? you can get it right when you try.

I dunno. Most of the women I see tying people up generally tend to look pretty cheerful about it.

Not that - you know - I see it frequently.

I mean, I don't attend any special underground clubs where such things happen on a regular basis.

I'm shutting up now. ;)

I LOVE this version of the manga WW. Many of the early AmiComi sculpts were pretty sexualized, so I was worried for WW. But, she looks tough, not overly sexy for no good reason, so I think the DID finally get it right.
