One of the coolest interpretations of Wonder Woman in recent years was in a series of animated shorts created by Robert Valley. The shorts aired as part of a regular feature during DC’s animation lineup on Cartoon Network, and while a lot of fun stuff came out of that lineup, nothing was as slick or as awesome as Valley’s take on Wonder Woman. She drove an invisible sportscar, had a rad 70s vibe, and saved poor Steve Trevor with ease. Here’s the first short, to refresh your memory:
It’s just SO GOOD.
And DC Collectibles seems to have enjoyed them too, because they’re releasing a “Wonder Woman: Art of War” statue based on Valley’s Wonder Woman. Let’s take a look at it, first in picture form:
And then in video form:
This looks so good. It captures the short perfectly, all of the attitude and the fun. I absolutely love it, and I may have to get one.
The statue is scheduled to be released in Fall 2015, so we’ve got to wait a while yet. The statues from the “Wonder Woman: Art of War” line all go for about $79.95 US, so I assume that this one will be in the same price range. Between this and the upcoming statue based on Cliff Chiang’s Wonder Woman, the “Wonder Woman: Art of War” line is putting out some ridiculously cool pieces lately. I can’t wait to see what they come up with next!
