There has been endless discussion about Wonder Woman’s costumes, but this steampunk version is definitely a winner. This Tonner doll measures 16″ tall, has a hand-painted face, and is being made in a limited edition of only 500 pieces that will be available in the third quarter of this year. I love the steampunk vibe with all the buckles on her boots and gauntlets, but the best part has to be the gold goggles she’s got pushed back on her head.

I’m a fan of the super stylized look of Pixar films like The Incredibles, and I’d love to see more heroes sketched in that fashion. Daniel Araya must agree because he’s churned out some fantastic concept art that shows the DC heroes with Pixar inspired style. I’d be thrilled if DC Comics actually published a comic with characters who look just like this art. Maybe it could happen.
See Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, and more after the break.

It seems that the good folks at Warner Bros see a future in superhero movies. Variety has reported that Gangster Squad writer Will Beall was hired to write the script for a Justice League movie last year, but has yet to actually turn in a finished product. Michael Goldenberg, who was one of the writers for Green Lantern, will be writing Wonder Woman.
Now the only question is just which characters we can expect to see. It seems unlikely that we’ll get Christian Bale as Batman, but that doesn’t mean we couldn’t get yet a new version of him in the film. And could Henry Cavill possibly appear as Superman? It’s way too early to know for sure, but at least there are writers on the project making it happen.
Coming soon to our Nerd Approved Shop—this beautifully crafted Wonder Woman Bishoujo Statue! Shipping is slated for September, but you can pre-order this item for your collection now.
Celebrating the 75th Anniversary of DC Comics, the DC Comics Bishoujo Collection (combining DC’s superheroines and villains with traditional Japanese stylings) continues with the prettiest member of DC’s “Trinity” – Wonder Woman! Wonder Woman is truly a force to be reckoned with as the ever-dynamic Amazon stands surrounded by her full panoply of weapons and equipment, ready to face any threat. Dressed in her iconic and colorful costume, the muscular and buxom Wonder Woman shows plenty of skin and looks sexier than ever! Diana holds her magical Lasso of Truth in both hands, ready to capture you and force you to tell her all your secrets. As with her compatriots, Wonder Woman has an incredible bishoujo-styled face that’s framed perfectly by her flowing long black hair and tiara. Wonder Woman is constructed of high-quality plastic and stands just over 9-inches tall (in the magnificent 1:7 scale) atop an exclusive Amazonian base, complete with her spears, shield, cape, and helmet. No bishoujo collection is complete without her!
Wonder Woman Bishoujo Statue—$54.99
Hot off the truck in our Nerd Approved Shop—the 7-inch DC Universe Wonder Woman Plush!
Adorable Amazon. The heroes and villains of the DC Universe are taking over the world… one hug at a time! This DC Universe Wonder Woman Plush is an adorably stylized version of the Amazon Princess that stands approximately 7-inches tall.
DC Universe Wonder Woman 7-Inch Plush—$9.99
This is the most adorable version of the Dynamic Duo ever. You can find them in the Kokeshi Clan store on Etsy along with plenty of other geeky dolls from Star Wars, Star Trek and more. This is the work of Craig Galentine of Temple 7e studio who creates each doll by sanding two wooden pieces and then connecting them with a wooden dowel so their heads will spin. He then hand decorates each doll with acrylic paints and signs the bottom with 7e and the year that it was constructed. They each measure around 4″ tall and would be the perfect addition to any fan’s collection.

Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head are no strangers to cosplay, which makes it all the more fitting that they would take on Superman and Wonder Woman – after all, they have already proved their superhero strength by surviving 60 years of playtime with small children.
The new 6″ figures will come complete with Superman’s signature (but significantly less flattering) costume and Wonder Woman’s tiara, bracelets and lasso of truth. They are expected to hit websites and store shelves this August.
