DC Collectibles had a wide array of statues at their booth that consisted mostly of items coming out later this year. While much of the selection looks like previously revealed items (with many already up for pre-order), I can't recall ever seeing the Cover Girls Poison Ivy.
At any rate, the lines represented include DC Comics Cover Girls, Before Watchmen, The Dark Knight Rises, Batman Black & White, DC Comics Super-Heroes Busts, and the often maligned Ame-Comi line.

While not quite the show-stopper that the recent Sideshow Poison Ivy was, the DC Comics Cover Girls Poison Ivy is not to be overlooked even if she shows less skin (blame her "New 52" look for that). The face sculpt is phenomenal, the base is neat, and we get that leafy effect that we all love. She's also bound to be a lot more affordable than that Sideshow one. Poison Ivy is due out in December.
Wonder Woman, who you'll notice behind her (and has a photo in the gallery), is due out in August.
Do people ever get enough of Harley Quinn? I half-think she's more popular than the Joker by now. The DC Comics Cover Girls Harley Quinn, which is based on her "New 52" look, features a cool blue and red color scheme for both her outfit and hair. You'll notice that her base includes a flattened version of her old costume, no doubt a playful jab at its abandonment in both the "New 52" comics and Arkham game series. This design is fairly eye-catching and manages to capture her quirky playful nature. This one is due out in November, following the Cover Girls Catwoman's scheduled October release.
The Before Watchmen selection looks great. I especially love the bases, which generally add additional personality. Where there's something to like about all the statues revealed so far I'd have to say the Silk Spectre is my favorite. The pose and expression make the character look tough but still vulnerable.
Silk Spectre is scheduled to come out January 2013, while Rorschach releases in August of this year followed by the Comedian in October and Dr. Manhattan in November.
I've always been somewhat intrigued by the Batman Black & White series which previously featured a few figures that really caught my eye but never ended up on my shelves. The Batman Beyond seen here (due out in November) is a good example of how these designs can shine without the use of color (well, color other than black, white, and gray).
I generally enjoy busts more when it's restricted to the chest up. However, DC Collectibles understands that there's stuff right below the waist that fans are also fond of. My two favorite DC Comics Super-Heroes busts on display are the Supergirl (due out in December) and Starfire (due out in October). These two will be accompanied by Cyborg in July, Grifter and Batgirl in August, Wonder Woman in September, Superman in October, Blue Beetle in November, and Shazam! (formerly known as Captain Marvel) in December.
We've seen the Ame-Comi Brainiac at a few cons now but I honestly can't get enough. While I'm used to seeing Brainiac in a more masculine form, a female version isn't without precedent such as with Brainiac-4 and Brainiac-8 (Indigo). That said, Brainiac is still radically different from how most fans know the character whether it be a green man or a metallic robot. She's due out in October.
Other Ame-Comi figures being released this year include Arisia in August and Harley Quinn v2 in October.
Personally I'll probably end up buying the Ame-Comi Brainiac although I also have my eye on the new DC Cover Girls Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn. That Silk Spectre statue is really neat as well. How about the rest of you, though? Are there any items that you're planning on getting?
