DC Collectibles New 52 Supergirl Figure Review

DC Collectibles New 52 Supergirl 01

 

DC Comics relaunched New 52 Supergirl is one of the latest releases from DC Collectibles. Supergirl measures 6-1/2″ tall and is sculpted in her New 52 costume.

Availability: September 2014

Packaging:

Supergirl is in the standard window box with the Supergirl logo at the top, and the front of the packaging is a combination of blue and white. On one side of the packaging there is the blue with a black shadow of the character, and on the other side is the picture of the figure and states it was sculpted by Jack Matthews. On the back of the packaging there is a brief bio of Supergirl, images of Nightwing and Batgirl, as well as New 52 figures of Aquaman, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, Superman, Batman, The Flash, and Cyborg.

Sculpt & Paint:

Supergirl has a nicely detailed sculpt that represents her appearance in the pages of The New 52 Supergirl comic. There have been some fan complaints that her eyes on crossed. This sample however has straight eyes. Her costume is painted in a light blue, with a metallic red and yellow Superman logo on her chest, skirt, and long boots. Her cape is painted a matte red finish with yellow metallic trim at the edges.

Her arms can only be lifted up at the shoulder at 90 degrees because the cape begins to show crease marks as the shoulder is lifted upward from the front. This is most unfortunate so you might want to avoid lifting up those arms at the shoulder. Her left shoulder can be extended to the side without casing the crease marks to the cape, but the right shoulder the cape prevents this as more of the cape is sculpted over that shoulder.

Articulation:

She has a ball-jointed head, ball-jointed shoulders (that shouldn’t be moved if you don’t want crease marks to appear on the cape), hinged elbows, swivel wrists, ball-jointed hips, hinged knees, and hinged ankles.

Accessories:

Included with Supergirl is a piece of Kryptonite that she can hold in her left hand.

Overall:

Supergirl is an excellent figure with a beautiful sculpt. The one primary concern is that the shoulders can cause crease marks to the cape if lifted beyond 90 degrees lifted upward. If you avoid doing that, then she will probably remain in great condition.

Highly Recommended.
