Women of Dynamite Statue Line Expands


Dynamite Entertainment has some of the most powerful and assertive female characters in all of comics and the publisher knows that. And to pay homage to them, Dynamite introduced the Women of Dynamite statue line--a line of statues that's about to get bigger. Two new, Limited Edition variant statues are on their way in the Purgatori "Black and White" Statue and the Jungle Girl "Diamond Eye" Statue. Only 49 of the Purgatori and 99 of the Jungle Girl statues will be made available.

"When we were planning our Women of Dynamite line of statues, we knew we had to do something really special with Purgatori and Jungle Girl," says Dynamite CEO and Publisher, Nick Barrucci. "Horror lovers and collectible enthusiasts have expressed such anticipation for the new line in light of our debut, Vampirella. Dynamite and the skillful team at The Brewing Factory want to reward their excitement with special variations, giving them several options for how to best display their favorite femme fatales."

The extremely Limited Edition Purgatori statue, based on the work of Michael Turner and sculpted by Jason Smith, features the stark contrast of light and darkness, with just a touch of deep red to highlight our villainess's classic look. Hand-painted on cold-cast porcelain, the Purgatori statue stands approximately 12" in height (14" to the tip of her wings) with a 6" base. This rare variant edition of the Women of Dynamite: Purgatori statue comes packaged in a four-color box with a hand-numbered Certificate of Authenticity.

The extremely Limited Edition Jungle Girl statue, based on the work of Frank Cho and sculpted by Smith, features comic book sensation Jana in all her primal glory...with a twinkle in her eye, courtesy of jewel placement on her perfectly sculpted face. Hand-painted on cold-cast porcelain, the Jungle Girl statue stands approximately 12" in height with a 6" base. This rare variant edition of the Women of Dynamite: Jungle Girl statue comes packaged in a four-color box with a hand-numbered Certificate of Authenticity.

Dynamite's Limited Edition statues retail for $249.99 apiece. The Women of Dynamite: Purgatori Limited Edition "Black & White" Statue and Women of Dynamite: Jungle Girl Limited Edition "Diamond Eye" Statue can be found solicited in the July-dated edition of Diamond's Previews catalog, corresponding to a release date in September 2016. Full press release below.
