All eyes are on Gal Gadot's upcoming Wonder Woman solo film, but that doesn't mean there aren't a few opportunities to reflect on her fantastic debut in Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, including a dazzling new statue from Prime 1 Studio.
The talented sculptors have modeled their statue off of the original Wonder Woman poster from Batman v Superman, but instead of the decidedly brown and orange tint that the previous version contained, their statue has embraced the bright side of the color palette.
Diana stands at around 40 inches tall (1:2 scale) and is made out of high-quality translucent resin, which is noticeably mainly on the bare skin. The statue features the sword and shield displayed in the film, and her base even features a LED spotlight function.
Gal Gadot's stunning likeness seems difficult to translate into sculpting form, as neither this version or the previous version from Iron Studios seem to truly capture it. That said, the statue is still stunning, including the focused facial expression and lovely hair. The colors are bright and bold, and the texture work on the skirt and armor seems to hold up upon first glance.
Wonder Woman will retail for $2099 USD and is limited to 750 pieces. You can view more photos of the impressive statue in the gallery.
As for the likeness issues, the good news is that newer statues from DC based on the Wonder Woman solo feature have started to be much more accurate to Gadot, so it looks like practice makes perfect in that regard.0comments
