Diamond Select, in association with D.C. Comics, presents a terrific statue depicting the one and only, Batgirl, from the 1966 Batman television series.

Batman took the television airwaves by storm in 1966. All the camp and color that filled the comic books of the era, was captured wonderfully on the small screen by creator, William Dozier. The show starred Adam West and Burt Ward as the caped crusaders and featured such great actors as Burgess Meredith, Cesar Romero, Frank Gorshin, and Julie Newmar as some of the most famous members of Batman’s Rogues Gallery.

Batgirl debuted in Detective Comics #359 in the issue titled, The Million Dollar Debut of Batgirl. Her secret identity was revealed to be none other than Barbara Gordon, the daughter of Commisioner James Gordon, Batman’s longtime ally. Later that year, Batgirl would also make her live action debut in the third and final season of the Batman television series. In the series, Barbara Gordon was played by the late, great, Yvonne Craig. The show never delved into the character’s origin, just that Barbara Gordon was a librarian by day and masked crimefighter by night. Craig’s Batgirl definitely turned the “dynamic duo” into a “terrific trio”, as it is the role she ended up being the most known for in her career. In a time when there were very few female heroes on T.V., she certainly served as a role model and inspiration.

This brilliant piece is expertly sculpted by the legendary, Clayburn Moore. Yvonne Craig’s Batgirl is perfectly realized in this gorgeous, premier collection statue. Barbara Gordon is outfitted in her sparklingly, screen accurate, purple and yellow costume. The statue is made of high quality resin and stands 12 inches tall upon a base, which features the unmistakable Batman logo. Each piece comes packaged in a full color box, with a certificate of authenticity. These statues are limited to 1,966 pieces…I wonder where they got that number from? The 1966 T.V. Series Batgirl Premier Collection Statue has a price tag of $179.99, qualifies for free shipping, and is available for purchase now from Entertainment Earth.
