Catwoman comes in her Jim Lee style costume. The costume is well executed, except that the backpack looks a little childish with its purple designs. Her head looks a little large, but is in proportion when compared to other female figures like Batwoman. The facial expression is adequate for committing crimes or fighting. The problem with the face is the different skin tones around the mouth and the rest of the face. It’s very noticeable, and cannot be hidden well. That the shape of the lighter area is uniform helps. It may really bother Catwoman fans, but for me, it’s not a big deal.
The body shape is fairly proportional, and there are lots of details where they could be applied. There are seams in the mask, the zipper is molded, there are designs etched into the belt, and the buckles of the shoes are molded. There isn’t a whole lot of color on this figure, so it’s unfortunate the skin tones of the face were messed up. The accessories add a lot to the figure. The whip stays curved from being in the box, and so does good action poses. There is a lot of detail in the cat as well, and the jewelry for her to hold is a nice touch. Overall, this figure came out very nice, and the only thing that’s really lacking is the paint application on the face. It lives up to most expectations.
Articulations is the same as the two Batwoman’s released so far in DC Superheroes. The legs can move out about 60 degrees out, and the abcrunch doesn’t move very far. The backpack also keeps the arms from going all the way down to her side, but it can be removed. Everywhere else, she gets a full range of motion in her joints.
Catwoman goes well with other DC Superheroes stylistically and in quality. She has some problems balancing because of the pin jointed ankles and small feet, but has a lot of poses at her disposal. The whip especially comes in handy, since she isn’t known for fighting with her fists. She goes well on display by herself, or with a group. Overall, she’ll fit well into a display or fighting scene.
Final Judgment: 6
Catwoman gets a high six, which would have been a seven with an even skin tone on the face. She’s got a good range of motion, and a level of detail I’m accustomed to getting from DC Superheroes. There’s nothing to really set her apart from other DC Superheroes though, which is another reason for the score.
