That's the Ami-Comi series. I like them, but they're too expensive for me to collect as a hobby. Typically, they go for $50 a pop. I have the Wonder Woman, but I got it for a good discount at the WonderCon because the package was damaged. If I get any others from this series, it'll be the Star Sapphire. It's a gorgeous piece.

Usually tend to pass on these. There was a local shop closing down and I managed to score the Batman Ame-Comi for $25, but that's the only one I have. Like Sylent said, they are just too expensive to collect on a regular basis.

Whenever I see that Jade Ame-Comi, I think of broccoli for some reason.

Jade, Star Sapphire, and Wonder Woman are the three hottest in this series in my opinion.

Hopefully, my LCS has the Sapphire. They give me a 25% discount on their toys and books so it should ease the cost pain a bit. It's a beautiful piece that I must have.

I wish this line would expand to male characters. The Ame-Comi Batman is probably one of my favorite pieces in my collection.

Male characters would be great. I'd love to see their Tim, Conner, and Kyle

My favorite of the series is the original Catwoman.






I'm looking forward to the other Anime line. The Bishoujo Catwoman by Kotobukiya looks awesome.

I think that's the only dude in the Ame-Comi series.

I like the Jesse Quick, but she's not showing enough cleavage. I like the Barda and there's something alluring about Raven.

I don't care for the new Wonder Woman.

This is Wonder Woman version 1, which Sylent has.





This is Wonder Woman version 2. I thought about buying, but did not.

Yeah, the Jesse Quick is missing the cleavage. That has me contemplating on purchasing it. The Barda one I think I'll buy. I'll probably pass on Raven. I'll liking the 3rd version of Wonder Woman, with the nice cleavage.

I was thinking the same thing about Jesse Quick, Barda, and Raven, but I'm leaning toward liking Wonder Woman.

I wish there was some site where you could get these for half price. As a whole, I like the line, but they're just too damn expensive to be a completist.

I wish they were less expensive too. The actually raised the prices over the last couple of years. They were $49.99 with Wave 1, and increase to $59.99.

Hey Mods: Is there any way we can change the title of this thread to "the Official Ame-Comi Thread?" or something to that effect?

Regarding these pieces, a friend of mine owns a comic store and might be able to offer them at a moderate discount. If that's the case, I'll be getting them from him. In addition, I'd be helping a friend out and bringing him business.

Primus, you might be interested. The guy that owns the shop is one of the guys that we hung out with at the WonderCon (Derek).
