With a lethal touch, Gotham City's seductive eco-terrorist is the latest addition to DC Direct's popular 1:6 scale deluxe collector figure line! Covered in flora, Pamela Isley appears here in a unique costume. But remove her bustier to reveal her more traditional costume, which laces up her back! This figure features 28 points of articulation, is packaged in a deluxe 4-color window box with a fifth panel and includes a display stand. Limited Edition. Manufactured to order.

$99.99, in stores on May 12.

GREEN LANTERN: LEGACIES MULTI-PART STATUE: PART 2: KYLE RAYNER AND A MANHUNTER ROBOT

Sculpted by Mike Locascio.

This multi-part statue is a must-have for Green Lantern fans. Green Lanterns from different eras appear together on a Lantern-shaped base, along with their predecessors, the Manhunters, as well as the Guardians of the Universe. The statue is made up of four separate pieces (sold in three parts), which form a single statue.

Solicited this month is Part 2 of the multi-part statue, featuring Kyle Rayner (in his original costume) and an original Manhunter robot. This part of the statue follows Part 1, solicited last month and featuring Hal Jordan and both classic and modern versions of the Guardians of the Universe. Part 3 (to be solicited next month) will feature John Stewart and Guy Gardner.

The bases of each piece slide together to form a Lantern-shaped base on which all of the characters stand. Each of the three parts includes a piece of the fourth portion of the statue, which can be easily assembled to form Alan Scott, who rises up from the center of the piece. All three parts of the statue are needed to make Alan Scott.

Part 2 of this statue measures approximately 9.75" high x 6" wide x 10.25" deep, while the entire multi-part statue measures approximately 16" high x 10.5" wide x 11.75" deep when fully assembled.

The Green Lantern: Legacies Multi-Part Statue is limited-edition, hand-painted, cold-cast in porcelain, includes a 4-color Certificate of Authenticity and is packaged in a 4-color box. Manufactured to order.

$195, in stores on May 26.

Sculpted by Joseph Menna.

The second in DC Direct's series of dimensional display pieces, Catwoman joins the Gotham City Stories line! Using her whip to balance as she crawls out the window, Catwoman and her kitty accomplice make off with a bag of money and some jewels among their loot!

DC Direct has created a new way for fans and collectors to celebrate their favorite DC Comics characters. This highly detailed resin rendition of Catwoman is designed to hang on the wall or be displayed on a desk or shelf. Each piece in the Gotham City Stories series tells a story on its own, and when multiple pieces of the series are displayed together, new and different stories emerge.

This limited-edition, hand-painted, cold-cast porcelain display piece measures approximately 5.75" high x 5.75" wide x 2.75" deep and is packaged in a 4-color box with a 4-color Certificate of Authenticity.

DC CHRONICLES: SUPERMAN STATUE

Sculpted by Tim Bruckner.

The Man of Steel is the second statue in a new series that captures the original depictions of DC Comics' most renowned heroes. While evoking a gritty, old-school feel with Superman bending a tommy gun, this statue is a modern, sculptural interpretation of Metropolis' hero. The DC Chronicles statue line has a consistent base, and the retro-style logo on the base further gives the piece a sense of the period from which it originated.

This limited-edition, hand-painted, cold-cast porcelain statue measures approximately 6.75" high x 4" wide x 4" deep and is packaged in a 4-color box with a 4-color Certificate of Authenticity.

$99.99, in stores on May 12.

UNI-FORMZ: THE FLASH

The Flash is the fourth character to join the stylized vinyl UNI-FORMZ line, inspired by the designer toy phenomenon! These unique versions of The Flash and related characters are must-haves for both collectors of contemporary toy design and fans of the Scarlet Speedster. Three characters from The Flash's life are available: the classic version of The Flash, dressed in his traditional red uniform; the villain Zoom, dressed in his traditional yellow uniform; and Black Flash, dressed, of course, in a black uniform.

These toys are extremely limited and once they are sold out, DC Direct will not produce them again! In keeping with the tradition of designer toys, rarity of certain incarnations are the norm. The Flash variants (Zoom and Black Flash) will be produced in far lower quantities.

These limited-edition vinyl UNI-FORMZ The Flash figures each feature 12 points of articulation, stand approximately 8" tall and are packaged in a deluxe 4-color window box.

Price TBA, in stores on May 26.
