A few weeks ago I did a review on Surf's Up Batman and since he was so genuinely cool I decided to go back to the store and see if I could find more. Luckily I found Catwoman! And here she is:
I'm not going to show you the box into too much detail this time. The front is almost entirely the same!
However since she's not holding a giant surfboard you can see more of Batman and Robin's shapely legs:
Of course the bottom of the box says Catwoman:
Dick has a new "holy" but this one isn't as good:
The back is unique to the figure:
The top has a paragraph about the lady herself and is full of purrfectly awful puns:
Like Batman's box, the center has a nice illustration.
The bottom has the same screens only with Surf's Up Batman added in this time!
Here she is one more time before we get her out:
And here is everything in the box:
The collector card is made out of the same thick cardboard. It has a graphic of Catwoman and Batman on one side.
Here are my two collector cards together:
The stand if the same half circle:
And finally here she is!
Her face and hair are very well done and I can see the resemblance to Julie Newmar. The hair and ears are so spot on!
Here is the figure from the back:
Her suit is mostly matte black but it has some brushed golden texturing and molded wrinkles in the "fabric."
She has shiny black, elbow length gloves:
She's also wearing shiny, black ankle boots:
Unfortunately one of her legs is a little warped:
As far as her articulation goes; it's actually not as good!
She has the same sort of neck joint Batman did.
She has a shoulder joint and a bicep joint.
She has one rotational waist joint.
But no front and back motion and no joint at her hips, above her belt.
She does have the same cool hip joint that allows her leg to move side ways.
Here are her side splits:
She has a mid thigh joint:
She also has an ankle joint.
But it's a bit restricted due to the shape of her book.
So all in all I'm a bit disappointed in her mobility! She's just a bit stiffer and has fewer joints than Surf's Up Batman.
But that doesn't mean she can't have some posing fun!
She's good at putting a sassy hand on her hip:
Of course I had to try and recreate the pose from the collector card! This is my best attempt:
I feel like I've complained a lot but I still love her! I love her face. Her cat suit is amazing and very detailed. I wish she had claws like in her picture and I wish her articulation was a touch better but other than that she's awesome! I'm still loving this line and want more. I really want a Robin, the regular Batman and I really really want an Eartha Kitt era Catwoman! Give me more Mattel!
I hope you've enjoyed this look at Catwoman. I'm not sure I'll be getting anymore of these but they are amazing! If you can get a hold of one I highly recommend them. Till next time!
