DC Super Heroes 6" Series 8 Catwoman
DC Comics: Tom - 2007.11.24

Appearance
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. Itís 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, itís 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 isnít a whole lot of color on this figure, so itís 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 thatís really lacking is the paint application on the face. It lives up to most expectations.

Articulation
Articulations is the same as the two Batwomanís released so far in DC Superheroes. The legs can move out about 60 degrees out, and the abcrunch doesnít 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.

Poseability
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 isnít known for fighting with her fists. She goes well on display by herself, or with a group. Overall, sheíll 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. Sheís got a good range of motion, and a level of detail Iím accustomed to getting from DC Superheroes. Thereís nothing to really set her apart from other DC Superheroes though, which is another reason for the score.

SCALE

10. My favorite possession.

9. My favorite action figure.

8. One of my favorite action figures.

7. An exceptional action figure.

6. A good, but not exceptional action figure.

5. An adequate action figure.

4. Not worth the money I spent.

3. I'll give it to somebody's kid.

2. I'll give it to somebody's dog.

1. It's going to lose a fight with my car.

yeah, I didn't have the hush version, so i couldn't compare. From what I've seen, I like the Hush version's head sculpt better.

I didn't really even notice the white around the mouth until i saw the pics on this review. I then looked at mine and it isn't horrible, it's not too noticeable so i don't really care.

This figure is awesome. I think that the paint on the face is just so noticeable from the close up photos. The paint on mine is no where near as bad as that. It does not even bother me that the same body is on the three bat women. It fits the characters. I only wish there was removable goggles on he... read more

Yeah that mouth paint issue is just...wrong. So So Wrong. I had to pass when I saw the figure in the stores.

That's a pretty decent review except for the mention of "Batwoman." Selina's milk beard (for lack of a better term) was a deal-breaker for me. I keep hoping Mattel will fix this before production ends but I keep seeing her on the pegs with that wacky paint error.
