I've always been a pretty big fan of DC Collectibles' line of Batman: Black and White statues. Like the comic series of the same name, they put the spotlight onto visionary artists' distinctive interpretations of the character, and the results have been pretty awesome. Over the years, being invited to design a statue for the line has become a prestigious achievement and recognition of creating a memorable vision of the Dark Knight.

Now, though, after offering up stylish Black and White versions of characters like the Joker, Harley Quinn and even the Penguin, the line is expanding with its first ever Batgirl statue -- and it's based on Cameron Stewart and Babs Tarr's new Batgirl of Burnside design.

The statue is sculpted  by Irene Matar, who also provided the sculpts for the recent (and awesome) Batman: The Animated Series action figures, and is the latest example of DC's push for the new imagining Batgirl, which has already become a fan favorite after only two issues.

The statue is set for release in September of 2015, so there's plenty of time to save up and clear off a space on your shelf.
