Women of Dynamite Gets Limited Upgrade for Jungle Girl and Purgatori
Building upon the excitement for the all-new Women of Dynamite statue line, as well as the recent debut of the line’s first statue (based on horror icon Vampirella), Dynamite is proud to announce the expansion of the series with Limited Edition variant statues, based on the popular comic book characters Purgatori and Jungle Girl. Extremely limited in number, the Purgatori “Black & White” Statue and Jungle Girl “Diamond Eye” Statue will provide fans with rare and visually unique collectibles for purchase beginning in September 2016.
Only 49 of these beautiful black-and-white statues exist in the whole world! The extremely Limited Edition Purgatori statue, based on the work of comics sensation Michael Turner and sculpted by the ever-talented Jason Smith, features the stark contrast of light and darkness, with just a touch of deep red to highlight our villainess’s classic look. Hand-painted on cold-cast porcelain, the Purgatori statue stands approximately 12″ in height (14″ to the tip of her wings) with a 6″ base. This rare variant edition of the Women of Dynamite: Purgatori statue comes packaged in a four-color box with a hand-numbered Certificate of Authenticity. This lady’s killer contours make an alluring addition to every hardcore fiend’s collection!
Only 99 of these gorgeous “Diamond Eye” edition statues exist in the whole world! The extremely Limited Edition Jungle Girl statue, based on the work of comics sensation Frank Cho and sculpted by the ever-talented Jason Smith, features comic book sensation Jana in all her primal glory… with a twinkle in her eye, courtesy of jewel placement on her perfectly sculpted face. Hand-painted on cold-cast porcelain, the Jungle Girl statue stands approximately 12″ in height with a 6″ base. This rare variant edition of the Women of Dynamite: Jungle Girl statue comes packaged in a four-color box with a hand-numbered Certificate of Authenticity.

“When we were planning our Women of Dynamite line of statues, we knew we had to do something really special with Purgatori and Jungle Girl,” says Dynamite CEO and Publisher, Nick Barrucci. “Horror lovers and collectible enthusiasts have expressed such anticipation for the new line in light of our debut, Vampirella. Dynamite and the skillful team at The Brewing Factory want to reward their excitement with special variations, giving them several options for how to best display their favorite femme fatales.”
Dynamite’s Limited Edition statues retail for $249.99 apiece. The Women of Dynamite: Purgatori Limited Edition “Black & White” Statue and Women of Dynamite: Jungle Girl Limited Edition “Diamond Eye” Statue can be found solicited in the July-dated edition of Diamond’s Previews catalog, corresponding to a release date in September 2016. Fans and collectors are encouraged to preorder with their local comic book shops to ensure that these rare items can be reserved for them, while supplies last.
