Personally I think it is funny to call her Wonder Woman, when he is supposed to be a “girl.”
Anyway, I digress from the reason I am writing this today. She is a fantastic doll. She shares many similarities with Batgirl, who I looked at last week, but she is unique enough that you don’t feel like you are buying the same doll with a different head.
Her skin color is a bit darker than Batgirl’s, but that is to be expected, since Batgirl hangs out in the night, and is red haired, which would lend itself to fairer skin.
Unlike the action figure I looked at last week with purple hair, this version of Wonder Woman is much better to the correct color. They even gave her some blue highlights, which is similar to the show, but in the show there is a bit more of a purple color to it, but the blue is a bit of a nod to the original comics that colored black hair with blue highlights.
She comes with her standard outfit she wears around school. It is easy to see how they could go about making a few different versions of WW, including one where she is in her armor. That would be pretty neat to see. Overall the outfit is spot on. Her shirt sleeves are short enough that they show off her strong arms. Her pants are pretty tight, and show that this is a muscular woman, and not some skinny Barbie doll under there.
Her accessories are a lot of gold. Gold shoulder armor that has a bit of trouble staying in place when playing with her. She has a belt that has a clip for her Lasso of Truth. I don’t know why they made her lasso with a clip to attach to her belt, but also left it out like she is using it. It does not look good on her belt when it is not coiled up. I think I might have to see about getting something to make a more realistic and functioning lasso.
In all, this is another great figure in the DC Super Hero Girls line. I think people are going to be quite fond of these dolls as they get them out of the packaging. They are self-standing, so you don’t have to worry about Monster High type stands. They are a sturdy toy that will last a long time, or adorn the shelves of collectors and show watchers.
PS Happy 6th Anniversary to being on WordPress. It has been a fast 6 years. So much has happened. I am looking forward to continuing on.
